Respected American golf architect, Cabell B. Robinson, viewed being asked to design the 18 hole par 72 championship Praia del Rey golf course as the oportunity of a lifetime. It is certainly one of the most picturesque layouts in Europe, set in extensive grounds of pine forest and undulating dunes with spectacular views over the Atlantic. The course is visually stunning and tremendously exciting to play. Because of the endless variations of the terrain you'll never play it the same way twice. Cabell has designed the course to be the complete golfing challenge with bold deep bunkers, undulating greens, and natural sand border areas contrasting sharply with the lush green fairways. The ladies' tees are also far enough forward to make sure that length isn't a problem. Cabel feels very strongly that the course must be fun for everyone to play. Praia Del Rey, rated 13th best course in Europe (& 80th best course worldwide) by Golf World magazine, has become one of the major golfing destinations in Europe.
