Local Interests

Costa del Sol
The Costa del Sol is a region in the south of Spain, in the autonomous community of Andalusia, comprising the coastal towns and communities along the coastline of the Province of Malaga. The Costa del Sol is situated between two lesser known coastal regions, the Costa de la Luz and the Costa Tropical. Formerly made up only of a series of small fishing settlements, today the region is a world renowned tourist destination.

Puerto Banus
Located 10 km from Marbella, Puerto Banus is a luxury marina and shopping complex that has become one of the largest entertainment centers in the Costa del Sol.

Carved into the hillside with natural vistas in every direction, the 18-hole championship course was designed in 2003 by American architect and course designer Cabell B. Robinson. With wide, sweeping fairways that lead on to large greens, gentle but challenging undulations and various water features, La Reserva is a must-play for any golfer visiting Southern Spain.

Entry Form Andalucia Classic Championship

Inspired by Sergio Garcia, Switzerland’s Dominique Rey wins at La Reserva Club

For the first time in 4 years La Reserva de Sotogrande hosted the 5th leg of The World Amateur Tour.

Our players savored the perfect conditions of the course during the 3 days.

But the biggest surprise came during the opening ceremony when announcing super star and US Open Champion Michael Campbell alongside with LGPA multiple winner Florence Descampe as the official coaches for the tournament.

First time playing in a World Amateur Tour Event, Serge Melchiorre was going to do the best start during the first round posting 4 birdies over the first 16 holes and a couple of bogeys to score 35 points.

After a double bogey on n°2, Switzerland’s Dominique Rey posted 2 birdies and 2 bogeys to finish tied after the first round.

The next morning the wonderful setting of La Reserva course was going to offer the perfect scene to the final battle between 3 potential winners.

Jacky Casanova who posted a score of 32 the first day was going to do the perfect start with 3 birdies and 3 bogeys to score 19 points stableford on the front nine and moved just one point behind Rey and Melchiorre.

Rey made a big move on the Amen Corner with one birdie and one bogey while the two French players shot three consecutive bogeys.

Nothing would stop Dominique Rey who cruised to his second win this year after the Portuguese Championship.

In the Second series, Christophe Chapon posted two good scores to overcome Christophe Guedon by one shot.

In the Ladies series, nobody could tell who was going to win the 2018 edition.

Defending champions Ines Sastre, Anne Catherine Robin and Santi Villena played very consistently until the 16th hole the second day.

Santi Villena posted the best scores on the last three holes with 5 points stableford to capture the Andalucia Classic Championship for the second time in three years.

Positions moved a lot in the World Amateur Tour Ranking as Dominique Rey is now leading with 200 000 points just in front of Christophe Guedon and Jerry Sarvadi.

Anne-Catherine Robin is still leading the Women’s ranking with 201100 points followed by Stéphanie Chapon with 175 000 points.

Next stop, The TOUR CHAMPIONSHIP will take place in South Africa for the Finals from November 29th to December 2nd.
