Atalaya New Course
Opened in 1990, this Paul Krings designed course presents an intriguing test of golf. Paul Krings has been responsible for the design of a number of European golf courses, including the prestigious GC Schloss Maxlrain in southern Germany. Set in the hills above the Atalaya Old Course, the New Course rewards accuracy off the tee, rather than out and out length. A number of the fairways and greens feature slopes and elevation changes, requiring careful shot selection.
The course provides wonderful panoramic views of the surrounding countryside, the Mediterranean and Gibraltar and thanks to its location away from busy roads provides a tranquil setting in which to enjoy your round of golf. Wildlife abounds throughout the course, including the lake on the picturesque 4th hole and there is a natural wood in the centre of the course, featuring cork oaks, olive and carob trees. Although there a few climbs, the course is perfectly walkable, however in the heat of the summer players are best advised to hire a buggy.
The New Course is included in our multi-year investment strategy designed to continually maintain and improve its presentation and playability throughout our 12-month golfing season.
The first tee is a short distance from Atalaya´s Golf Academy providing convenient practice facilities to warm up before the game. Make sure to stop for a coffee and a snack at the Old Course café as you make your way to the New Course, where you will also find a number of water fountains to provide refreshment during your round.
