The Atalaya Golf Old Course is an athletic and demanding course lined with pines and eucalyptus trees spread over a hilly landscape that frequently yields fabulous views of the Mediterranean. This Bernhard von Limberger-designed course was opened in 1968 and is therefore one of the more established courses on the Costa del Sol. The Old Course is a championship course. It is laid out as a classic parkland course sown with Bermuda grass, with wide fairways and tricky greens that are guarded by well-positioned bunkers. The Atalaya Golf & Country Club is home to the headquarters of the European PGA and organises the annual Team Championship. The Atalaya Golf Old Course also has a large driving range, six short game practice zones and three putting greens.The clubhouse has typical Andalusian styling and feel and houses a restaurant and the "Ryder Cup Bar", from which guests can enjoy wonderful views of Marbella and across the Med to Gibraltar.

The New Course is one of the most original and natural courses on the Costa del Sol and spoils golfers with fabulous views across the Mediterranean to Gibraltar.

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 Piñero, 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.
