PLAYING THE CROWN OF SPAIN’S EXCLUSIVE COURSES.
GOLF SANTA MARINA. DESIGN BY SEVE BALLESTEROS.
Golf Santa Marina: Par-72 – 18 holes @ 6,027 metres. Full facilities available.
Our Golf Santa Marina course was one of the last courses that the Seve designed. A modern and competitive golf course with a wide variety of holes, perfectly integrated into the natural terrain. Read Seve’s summary below. “The most difficult part of the course are holes 4, 5 and 6, to be compared with the famous “Amen Corner”. If you get through these holes, you’ll make it through to the end”. This is a course designed for all levels of players. It is fun and entertaining for those with the highest handicaps and can also present a real challenge for professional players, who would really have to use all the clubs in their bag. I have played on many courses and, I can objectively say that I don’t know of any course that has par 3 holes of the quality seen in Santa Marina. The par 5 holes, on the other hand, are not complicated, except for the 9th, where you have to choose the best way to play it. The par 4s are very complete, varied and well-balanced. I’m very satisfied with the work. It’s a natural course, where we have tried to bring into play all the peculiarities and natural elements of the land”.

REAL GOLF DE PEDREÑA - DESIGN BY HARRY COLT
Real Pedreña de Golf: Par-70 – 18 holes @ 5,705metres. Full facilities available.
Real Pedreña de Golf is located in one of the most beautiful parts of the Costa Verde if not Spain or even the world, absolutely breathtaking. The location, the scenery and the design make Pedreña one of a kind. The layout of the course has been adapted to the natural topography of the terrain. Our natural 18-hole course designed in 1929 by Harry Colt, is surrounded by pinewoods and has magnificent views of Santander Bay and the Cubas estuary.
It was extended in 1991 with new 9 holes designed and built by Seve Ballesteros. His extension consists of 7 holes running along the banks of the river Cubas estuary and finishing on the 8th and 9th inside the pinewoods, which are a typical feature of Pedreña. A demanding course requiring some pretty accurate golf. Real Pedreña de Golf is one of the worlds more famous golf courses and for many golfers a bucket list must. Seve’s boyhood course where he turned pro at 16 years old.

REAL SOCIEDAD DE GOLF DE NEGURI. DESIGN BY JAVIER ARANA.
Real Sociedad de Golf de Neguri: Par-72 – 18 holes @ 6,280 metres. Full facilities available.
An extremely exclusive private golf club, the Torrey Pines of Bilbao as quoted by Jon Rahm about his local home course. With spectacular views overlooking the Cantabrian Sea and out to the Bay of Biscay, with gran pine-tree lined fairways, and nestled 60 metres above sea-level from its cliff-tops heights. Javier Arana was the club champion at the turn of the 20th century and re-designed an intelligent golf course here, that can be comfortable for all levels of golfer.
However the course is deceiving as Arana the best golf course designer ever from Spain expertly incorporates into the round, any golfer will be proud to have had the opportunity to play Neguri. A 50 minutes transfer from Santanders Sardinero, a slightly extra journey than the average, however a reward in its own just to play here. A must visit for any golfer when in our exclusive Santander Golf-Hub.
