The Fairways for Hedonists in the Heartland of Golf

Flamingos Golf played host to the European Senior Tour in 2002, 2003 and 2004 as well as the Ladies European Tour (LET) in 2010. With undulating greens and enveloping views of the Mediterranean, it has become an epitome of big-time golf on the Costa del Sol. Pleasing any calibre of player, it is by far the best known golf course of Villa Padierna.
