Lauro 27 Golf can be found in the middle of beautiful pure nature in spectacular surroundings.The course counts with 27 holes that can be played in three different combinations, all par 72.
From the beginning the design and function of the course has been based on respecting the nature and the environment that surrounds it by not only saving and caring for the already existing trees but also by planting thousands of new trees, most of them indigenous andalucian species.
In Lauro Golf the nature is everywhere. Within the whole complex the direct contact with the nature is constant and whether you are playing golf, living in the residential or just enjoying a stroll in the surroundings you can see that we are not the only visitors at Lauro Golf. You can often see rabbits, ducks, partridges, herons and even eagles on and around the golf course, our friendly neighbours who are enjoying the micro-climate of the course created by the thousands of trees and the fourteen lakes of the golf course.
The course was designed by the late Folco Nardi and the idea was to create a course that was technically challenging yet not too difficult. With a good concentration and the correct election of the clubs the player can end up with a good score in one of the 50 competitions played every year at Lauro Golf.
The extension of the course with the holes 19-27 designed by Mariano Benitez follows the same line and equally requires concentration and skills. The course is moderately flat and can be played by foot though there are two holes located on the side of the mountain and from which we can enjoy some spectacular views over the valley of Guadalhorce and the Mediterranean.
The club house is located in an old Andalucian building, Cortijo el paredón, where you can find the restaurant, changing and locker rooms, pro shop and the caddy master office. On the premises and the surroundings you can also find a swimming pool, a padel tennis club, lawn bowls club and an equestrian centre. In the middle of the cortijo there is a fabulous patio, with an enormous rubber plant in the middle which offers shade to the players enjoying their food and drinks after a game of golf.
