“Las Ramblas, the incredible water hazards – the Ramblas – which make this (golf) course different from others in the area” FORE! magazine (Jan 2000 issue)

“Las Ramblas. Take plenty of balls. You will need them.

It is an outstanding, undulating course in a dramatic, contrasting landscape. One minute you are trying to steer clear of trees and shrubbery and the next you are battling to avoid barren rock outcrops. Be warned it is a battle you might well lose. But you will love trying.

Best bits of the course are the challenge of propelling your ball over a series of gorges and ravines. The first – a 341-metre sharp dogleg right of a par four- sets the tone. You can either gamble and drive over a rocky hillock or play safe by taking an iron , aiming for an area straight ahead but leaving a lengthy second shot. Decisions, decisions… and Las Ramblas is full of them.” Today’s Golfer magazine, January 2001.
