El Paraiso Golf
History of El Paraíso Golf From 1973 to 2016
The Gary Player designed course opened in 1973, and twenty years later had a membership of over 400 members, with a very active social calendar for the mainly expatriate community.
Owners Wimpey Construction then decided to sell the club and after several years of negotiation the ownership was transferred to the members in 1996.
The club continues to be one of the few courses on the Costa del Sol to be owned and run by members, where a warm welcome is always guaranteed.

El Paraiso Golf Club
The setting, ambience and layout of the course have always made it popular among visiting golfers to the coast. However as new courses were being built in the area, competition for business became intense. During the financial crisis starting in 2007, some golf courses closed and others struggled to survive.
El Paraiso made difficult business decisions, including drastic reductions in staff, and this enabled the Club to emerge from the crisis in a strong position. Over the past five years, major investment has been made in improving the quality of the playing experience and also of the old andalussian finca style clubhouse.
