“The Legend of Pedreña”
Golf Santa Marina
The Golf Santa Marina course was one of the last courses that the Cantabrian Severiano Ballesteros designed. With this course, Cantabria has a modern and competitive golf course, located in privileged and spectacular grounds.
It is a course with a wide variety of holes, perfectly integrated into the natural terrain.
The second 9 holes, the Severiano Ballesteros course, are more complicated than the first 9.
The second part of the course is bigger and long play brings rewards, whereas in the first part, water comes into play and the holes are completely flat.
Nevertheless, it is in the first half, the Ramón Sota course, where strategy and precision are more important, with several streams and obstacles directly affecting the holes (2 through to 9).
As Seve himself said: “The most difficult part of the course are holes 4, 5 and 6, to be compared with the famouse “Amen Corner”. If you get through these holes, you’ll make it through to the end”.
This is a course designed for all levels of players. It is fun and entertaining for those with the highest handicaps and can also present a real challenge for professional players, who would really have to use all the clubs in their bag.
I have played on many courses and, I can objectively say that I don’t know of any course that has par 3 holes of the quality seen in Santa Marina. The par 5 holes, on the other hand, are not complicated, except for the 9th, where you have to choose the best way to play it. The par 4s are very complete, varied and well-balanced. (Ballesteros 2001)
I’m very satisfied with the work. It’s a natural course, where we have tried to bring into play all the peculiarities and natural elements of the land. (Ballesteros 2001).
Real Golf De Pedrena
The Real Club de Golf de Pedreña is located in one of the most beautiful parts of Cantabria. The location, the scenery and the design make Pedreña one of a kind. The layout of the course has been adapted to the natural topography of the terrain. This natural 18-hole course designed in 1929 by Harry S. Colt, is surrounded by pinewoods and has magnificent views of Santander Bay and the Cubas estuary. It was extended in 1991 with new 9 holes designed and built by Severiano Ballesteros. The extension consists of 7 holes running along the banks of the river Cubas estuary and finishing on the 8th and 9th inside the pinewoods. A demanding course requiring some pretty accurate golf.
Hotel Hoyuela Santander was erected following the Cour Jardin style at the height of the splendour of Avenida de los Hoteles, where it’s located. Its classic and elegant design and modern facilities make this accommodation truly unique. In an idyllic location in front of Sardinero Beach.
Its rooms, in the heart of Sardinero, are designed to make all guests feel at home and relax like never before.
