La Quinta Golf Club has 27 holes divided between three 9-hole courses (course A+B / par 70 / 5,602 metres, course A+C / par 71 / 5,915 metres, course B+C / par 71 / 5,749 metres). Course A, the San Pedro course, is short with open fairways and requires the use of woods and long irons. Course B, the Ronda course, is a fabulous course with narrow fairways and difficult-to-play greens. This course plays uphill into the mountains towards the town of Ronda and is surrounded by pretty villas and houses. The third course, the C course, is called Guadaiza. Although the La Quinta course is easier to play than the B course, it challenges the golfer with numerous curved fairways and doglegs. The course was designed by Manuel Pi๑ero, nicknamed "Manolo", one of the most successful golfers ever on the European Tour, with 21 national and international titles. He is still head of the La Quinta Golf Academy today.
