As part of the SO/ Sotogrande hotel project, the Almenara Golf Course has also had a makeover to make it much more player-friendly. A whole raft of changes have been made, including the removal of approximately 20 bunkers and pruning the trees on the course
to give the feeling of wider and more generous fairways. Hole 1 of the Los Pinos course had a very steep drop to the left, this has been altered to make this hole flatter and more playerfriendly. Holes 3 and 4 have had the tees modified and hole 5 has had alterations to two long bunkers.
The team has taken note of all the player feedback they have received over the years and have worked to improve it in all areas and they can’t wait to hear what regular players think of the improvements.
