Designed in 1973 by Gary Player, El Paraiso is one of the most established courses on the Costa del Sol. Set out in the peaceful El Paraiso valley with the backdrop of the majestic 'La Concha' mountain to the north and the sparkling Mediterranean to the south, El Paraiso has the envious reputation of not only providing one of the best championship course layouts on the coast, which draws players back time and time again, but also being the friendliest international club too. New members, golf societies and visitors are welcome.

The course has a terrific layout. But at the moment the fairways are worn, almost without grass. And - what is a lot worse: for some stupid reason it seems to have been chosen to secure any bottom of the bunkers with concrete. Meaning that...More

El Paraiso Golf Club offers one of the best enjoyment/price ratio in golf on the Costa del Sol/Golf. Easily walkable, it's appreciated by most of the players. Designed by Gary Player, the slope, a little over the average, will grant 2 stroke to an average...More

Friendly staff, fun to play. Waiter in the restaurant not the happiest person I met there. One green closed - so a temporary in use - discount ?? Plenty of people on the course but the waiting was not exessive.
