Great golf course design by Jose Maria Olazabal, with all renovation made by him . Very long golf course with 2 very long par 3s and 9 lakes. A lot of shots over water to some really tight pin positions, 3 doglegs left and 2 doglegs right. Real Club de Golf de Sevilla will host the World Cup of Gold in November this year. Great Club with all type of facilities. All renovation finished 5 weeks ago. First Course in Europe to have "The green encroachment barrier system" which protect the greens from invasion of other grasses.
