Torrequebrada golf course, in Benalmádena on Spain´s Costa del Sol, opened in 1976. The course was designed by José “Pepe” Gancedo, one of Spain´s most promising amateur golfers, who has since designed many golf courses in Spain, in the rest of Europe and in the States. It is considered one of the best courses in Europe.
Torrequebrada was host to the 53rd Spanish Open Championship in 1979. A unique feature is the variety of fairway design, which makes it important to choose the right club for each shot. The more intrepid player can test his skill on every hole, whatever his handicap. It would not be correct to draw attention to any particular hole as they are all part of the combined challenge presented by the landscape and nature itself. The greens are notable for their size and speed. Strategically placed lakes and bunkers add to the course´s challenge and interest. Over 100 varieties of shrubs and trees line Torrequebrada´s fairways and every hole has a backdrop of the blue Mediterranean and the mountains.
