Club de Golf La Canada offers nice views to the sea and the port of Guadiaro. In the fifties the area of Guadiaro was farming country but then came Sotogrande and some farm workers, moving with the times, became greenkeepers. Their work at Sotogrande kindled an intense interest in the game and they developed a small nine-hole golf course on a mountainside. With local kids gathering in their droves to whack golf balls around this primitive golf course the tiny village of Guadiaro was able to boast of more golfers than any other village in the entire country. Major improvements were guaranteed when Jamie Ortiz Patino talked the municipality into donating a parcel of the land and then arranged for the doyen of golf course architects, Robert Trent Jones, to design a nine-hole golf course. La Canada was the result and some ten years later, with financial help from both the First Tee programme and Jimmy Patino, a second nine-holes, designed by Dave Thomas, was added. When a clubhouse became a reality La Canada was really on the golfing map but, remaining true to the spirit of their origins, it was decided that local golfers would still get priority with tee times.
How to play Club de Golf La Canada?
Strategically placed olives and cork oaks, fast greens, this is as good as you will find at this price. True, there's a bit of reciprocal fairway going on on the front nine. Holes 17 and 18 are great finishing holes. A par three over water to a slick,undulating green and a par four with a 200 yard carry over a ravine (yellow tee, 180 red) if you take the tiger line to set up a short iron in.
