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 its doors in 1991 and quickly became the golf resort of choice in Sotogrande, designed by Dave Thomas the Old Course along with Real Club de Valderrama and Real Club de Sotogrande became known as the golden triangle of golf.
In 1997, during the Ryder Cup held in neighbouring Real Club de Valderrama, the adjacent San Roque Suites 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 major 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 and the practice and training facilities at the club are almost second to none in Europe with the presence of many national federations and representative teams – both professional and amateur – testifying to that.
San Roque Club – Old Course
This amazing course is the pride of the club, the enjoyment of it is reserved for members only except for the daily public periods when the general public can make use of this amazing fairways for a premium rate – unless you have booked the Spain’s Finest package with The Golf Travel People when the overall 4 or 5 round rate with buggies included represents great value for 5 of the very best golf courses in the world!
At the foothills of the Sierra Bermeja, where the mountains meet the sea, is a legendary home for European golf Created in 1990. Designed by Dave Thomas with bunkers redesigned by Seve Ballesteros, The Old Course is rated amongst the finest in Europe.
San Roque Club – New Course
The New Course, opened in 2005, is a Perry Dye design. It’s set on similarly beautiful terrain with many scenic views. The difference is mostly in the Dye-family shaping: big, steep bunkering, larger greens and even railroad sleepers. Playing pretty long and tough from any of the men’s tees the New Course at the San Roque Club is a tough challenge for most players, although straight and above average length drives will be rewarded with short iron shots into very receptive greens with excellent putting surfaces. When The Golf Travel People played the San Roque Club New Course recently (February 2016) we found the layout, location and challenge of this true championship test to be a great choice for your holiday golf in this area.Cadiz-Jerez, Costa de la Luz, Spain Travel Guide
