5. Sotogrande

Architect: Robert Trent Jones Snr GF: €160 W: golfsotogrande.com

One of the most well-known holiday destinations for sun-seeking golfers, Sotogrande has constantly reinvented itself to meet the ever-increasing expectations of its visitors. Usually in tip-top condition, some consider it to be a worthy rival for Valderrama. Whilst not too demanding from the tee, its main defence is the elevated and sloping greens that mean the golfer must plot his way round strategically.
