The Aloha golf club is situated in Marbella, and just a few minutes from Puerto Banús, in the 'Nueva Andalucía' residential area. Aloha Golf is a fun course which requires accuracy and solid hitting. The holes are not excessively long except for the 1st, the 4th, the 13th and the 18th. It is a narrow course, full of hazards and very well-placed trees.
