La Reserva Club praised in duo of highly regarded golf resort rankings

12 November 2018

La Reserva Club has been rewarded for its continued investment into outstanding facilities by being named as one of the best golf resorts in continental Europe by two separate specialist review panels.

Highlighting the recent improvements to La Reserva Club’s leisure and accommodation facilities, the Golf World judging panel installed the resort as a new entry to the listings at number 36, while National Club Golfer placed it at number 31 in their standings.

Having been controversially omitted from the inaugural list two years ago due to a lack of on-site accommodation, La Reserva Club is the second-highest new entry in the Golf World standings as reviewers stated: “La Reserva has that intangible ‘feelgood factor’ that makes you want to linger longer.”

The panel at National Club Golfer, meanwhile, reviewed La Reserva and neighbouring Almenara together, commenting: “La Reserva and Almenara coming under the same ownership has created one of Europe’s finest golf facilities.”

The facilities at La Reserva, which include an extensive range of sports facilities, beach club, restaurants and a lifestyle concierge service, were lauded further by the Golf World judging team, who noted: “The club’s new guest villas are of an incredibly high quality and specification. Visitors also have access to the resort’s new Beach Club.

“The restaurants are excellent, the service is great, and the practice facilities are among the best in this list.”

The review in Golf World’s Top 100 Resorts in Continental Europe pull-out features a stunning image of the 18th hole which highlights La Reserva’s rolling fairways, manicured tee boxes and stunning vistas of the clubhouse and surrounding Sotogrande countryside.
