Marbella Club Golf Resort The quiet little center of everything

By Artur Loginov on
Marbella Club Golf Resort

Marbella Club Golf Resort is an oasis encapsulated by striking mountains. Found north by northwest of San Pedro de Alcantara, and a stone’s throw from the Mediterranean sea, it's a beautiful valley connected to the road leading to the tranquil area of Benahavis. And it’s even closer to Monte Mayor. A haven of seclusion, its roads wind into quiet corners yet are also only minutes away from the buzzing Marbella lifestyle. All said, its rise in popularity is no surprise.

What is Marbella Club Golf Resort?
