Golf Course Restoration Project

In August 2011, the General Assembly of Members of the Real Club de Golf Sotogrande approved with over 90% of the vote to undertake a thorough restoration of the golf course.

The project was conceived as a genuine work of restoration of the course designed by Robert Trent Jones in 1964. The Club counted with the advice of architects Roger Rulewich, who worked for 35 years as Jones´right-hand man, and of his partner David Fleury. R&F made crucial contributions recovering the lost shapes and playing surfaces of greens, whose area, to be precise, has increased by nearly 45%, recovering their original size, modernising bunkers and shaping fairway areas.

The project involved the construction of an extensive drainage network, installing 44 kilometres of high-quality, high-efficiency drainpipes. Also, 71,000 tonnes of siliceous sand were added to the golf course, 64,600 for the fairways and 6,400 for the greens. The golf course was turfed with nearly 37 hectares of Certified 419 Bermuda which was laid on fairways and rough.

The 18 holes of the golf course were inaugurated on July 30th 2016.
