The lack of development around this beautiful course, the lush Cadiz vegetation and the unbeatable climate make Montenmedio Golf an organic paradise and one of the most natural and well-kept courses in Southern Spain.
The course is a classic parkland design with the local terrain well-used to create a challenging, interesting and beautiful golfing layout. With a large colonial style club-house including a refined a-la-carte restaurant and cafe bar, along with full practice facilites, pro shop etc you cannot fail to be impressed by this fine example of Spanish golf.
Named as one of the best courses in Europe by Severiano Ballesteros for both quality and landscape, the course is well worth a visit. Additional to sweepingly generous fairways flanked by a variety of flourishing, indigenous trees - the long, 550m 12th is a model par-5 hole, this very gently undulating terrain presents memorable golf-course scenery. Four par-5 holes are long and complicated by doglegs; most holes are par-4 and a few picturesque par-3s complete what is overall a very interesting course.
By far, though, the most distinctive feature of the course, as Robert Hardwell succinctly expressed it is, "The lack of concrete." Apart from an elegant W.C. facility on the 9th hole there is a breathtaking absence of 'housing'. From one green, the mountaintop village of Vejer can be spotted in the distance. The only other man-made interventions are the necessities of golf paraphernalia: greens, flags, etc. Leaving the land in a state as close to natural as possible is inherent to Montenmedio philosophy; both existing and future golf courses will reflect this attitude. Golfers who have been exposed to over-crowded, over-marshalled courses will be pleased by Montenmedio's policy of a limited saturation point.
