The Field

The course was designed by Sr. Robert Trent Jones in 1974 and was originally known as  Sotogrande New (Las Aves). In 1984, Jaime Ortiz-Patiño bought the field and set himself the goal of raising it to an extraordinary standard, never seen before in Europe. Sr. Robert Trent Jones came back again to re-design and improve the original layout.

The course was renamed Valderrama, the same name as the ancient estate on which the land is situated. These two men shared a common aim: to create a course that would present a test of golf to the everyday golfer and the first-class player alike. Valderrama has since risen in the Golf World rankings to become the No.1 golf course in mainland Europe, a position proudly held since 1989.
