In a hilly location, Santa Maria is a parkland golf course. Just outside Marbella, this par 70 golf course is a straightforward out and back layout with plenty of water to grab your attention though hopefully not your ball.  The course runs through two valleys with great views of the sea.  After a gentle start through a valley, the holes climb up the side of the mountain before you cross under the motorway to continue your round. Four of the five par three’s are on the back nine and the par three seventh is a fantastic 200-yard challenge from elevated tees.
