New Venue Announcement – Valle Romano Golf & Resort

59club Europe South is thrilled to announce its newest partner venue located on stunning Costa del Sol, Valle Romano Golf & Resort – three-time host of the European Tour, the 2nd Stage Qualifying School in 2011, and two Challenge Tours in 2018 and 2019.

Spread across 122 hectares in the area of Estepona, the course was designed by Cabell B Robinson and offers breathtaking views of Estepona, the Alboran Sea and Northern Africa. The resort includes an 18-hole layout that provides an exciting test of golf with elevated tee boxes, fairways and greens as well as unique dining experiences at Columela restaurant.

We asked, Ildefonso Esquivel, Director of Valle Romano Golf why he made the decision to partner with 59club Europe South:

“Our vocation and priority at Valle Romano Golf is to enhance the customer experience through the training of our teams. In this regard, we want to continue improving and differentiate ourselves from our competitors through our service and customer attention. Therefore, we believe it is the right time to partner with 59club to leverage their expertise in customer service excellence within the golf industry. We are eager to apply their tools and know-how within our club to enhance our service standards.”
