MONTE Mayor golf club has sadly had to close – with no fixed plan to reopen.
The Marbella club, which opened in 1989, blames ‘disappointing operational results’ for the closure and said it will now concentrate on restructuring.
“Various alternatives will be reviewed during the coming weeks in order to come up with a viable way to continue operating the course and ensure investment value,” said club administrator Peter Geerlings.
“It will, of course, be re-opened as soon as practically possible,” he added.
“Awful news. It is one of the best courses in Spain,” commented Miranda Remie on the club’s Facebook page.
“We can only hope for a swift resolution and a new owner to restore this beautiful course to its rightful place amongst the top golf courses of the Costa del Golf,” said local man Reginald Hoare.
