Opened in 1973, the course enjoys the distinction of being a Gary Player design. By 1993, although commercially owned, the Club had over 400 members and, apart from the golf, the Club provided a very active social life for the mainly expatriate membership. At this point the whole existence of the club was threatened when the then owner, Wimpey Construction, decided to sell it. The members decided to raise the finance between them and negotiated the purchase of the land and the business of the golf club in 1996. Ever since then, it has remained as one of the very few clubs on the Costa del Sol which is owned and run by the members.
