General

San Roque Club offers all the facilities you’d expect of the finest and most exclusive meeting place on the Costa del Sol. The two contrasting golf courses are as challenging as they are beautiful and away from the greens, four very different restaurants serve up a stunning array of high-class cuisine, from Japanese to tapas. The equestrian centre’s top class facilities appeal to everyone from novices to experts, and if a more relaxing visit appeals, the terraces, the heated pool or beauty and therapeutic treatments are among the facilities members enjoy, while the meeting and conference rooms make this a perfect place to get down to business in a calming environment.

Formerly the home of the Domecq sherry family, The San Roque Club sits on an enviable backdrop surrounded by lush hills and historic cork oak woods. The centrepiece of the club is the magnificent Domecq mansion which oozes character. The club is set within 340 acres of peaceful and natural Andalusian where the ancient Cork Oaks dominate the landscape. San Roque first opened it´s doors in 1991 and quickly became the golf resort of choice in Sotogrande, designed by Dave Thomas the Old Course along with Valderrama and Real Club de Sotogrande became known as the golden triangle of golf.

In 1997, during the Ryder Cup held in neighbouring Valderrama, San Roque hosted both the European and American teams and their families and to this day the plaques with the players´ names remain by the door to the suites they occupied. The first event under the club´s belt was the European Tour Qualifying School Finals in 1993 held exclusively on the Old Course until 2003. Many players who have since become household names received their tour card at San Roque such as Padraig Harrington, Lee Westwood, Ian Poulter and Justin Rose to name a few. “See you in November in San Roque” became a catch phrase for those in the business as the Q School finals were held for a further 13 years at the club with the exception of 3 years in between where the finals were held in Catalunya.

In 2003, San Roque opened a further 18 holes and so the New Course was born. The course designed by Perry Dye and Seve Ballesteros is a perfect contrast to the Old as it is extremely different in design, yet presents the same challenges as it´s older sister. In 2005 the Old Course hosted the Spanish Open which was eventually won by Peter Hanson after a play off with fellow Swede Peter Gustafsson. The tournament returned in 2006, this time on the New Course with Niclas Fasth winning this time.

It is fair to say that The San Roque Club holds a place in the heart of many a European Tour professional. The club continues to welcome elite players from across the globe who come to take advantage of the outstanding conditions before important tournaments. As for amateurs, the two courses offer some of the most beautiful holes they will ever play. It´s not only professionals who enjoy San Roque as thousands of amateurs will testify each year. The courses have been designed so that both low and high handicap players can enjoy them.
