TangoRomeo review

One of the best courses in Europe probably. Recently generously renovated RC Sotogrande presents itself as good as it gets. The greens are great but very small so this course needs some skill. The typical cork-oaks which fringe the holes can prove costly for wayward shots, so this is not a course to mindlessly overpower. Thinking your way around the track will reward you with pars and birdies. The Par5s are all relatively long so even skilled players will need two very good shots to get there let alone hit these small greens from afar. Compared to Valderrama or San Roque the greens in Sotogrande are bit easier to read if you are not used to the Costa del Sol greens. Beautifully designed holes are difficult to point out as almost all of them qualify. There are hardly any negatives on this fantastic course. Maybe #7 which has caught me off guard more than once. A difficult teeshot even if executed perfectly at best leaves you with a wedge of a sloping lie to a small green guarded by a water hazard and a couple of bunkers. Survive 7 and the teeshot on 9 and chances are you have scored well on the front. The back9 offer a few birdie opportunities but again the strategy on this course needs some thinking if you want to get away with a decent score. For me one of the great layouts one can play every day for two weeks straight and still enjoy every single shot. Great course to walk without buggy too, BUT you'll need some time. Usually packed with slow 4somes. For serious golf nuts the renovation includes a new driving range and one of the best short games facilities I have ever seen. Fun for hours guaranteed!
