Opened in 1964, Sotogrande has become known as one of the finest golf courses in Europe. Designed by Robert Trent Jones, Sotogrande was his first foray onto the continent. The course has very little rough, but there are plenty of bunkers and water hazards to make Sotogrande a challenging course for all levels of golfers. Accurate shots to the green are necessary on every hole as virtually every green is surrounded by bunkers. Water comes into play on the 1st, 7th, 12th, 13th, 14th, 16th, 1th7 and 18th holes — and always on the right hand side.
