A bit of history: The beginnings
The course’s beginnings date back to the last century, in the early 1920’s, and are tied to the Royal Family in Britain, in particular, to the Princess Beatriz de Battenberg, mother of Queen Victoria Eugenia. Queen Victoria spent part of the year in the Malaga region and promoted construction of the Club. In 1925 and under the technical direction of Harry Sephard Colt (who also designed and built the Wentworth course) construction began on the primitive, 9-hole course.
Later, and under the direction and design of renowned British architect Tom Simpson (whose hands have delivered such important and famous courses as Turnberry, Muirfield and Ballybunion) , it was expanded to 18 holes (6173 m, par 72). Malaga-native Miguel Ángel Jiménez holds the course record with 62 strokes, obtained during the 1999 PGA Turespaña Masters, which he went on to win. Vijai Sing won the Turespaña Master in 1992 here, on this golf course.
