Millionaire McMicking developed the first course in Sotogrande, the luxurious Royal Sotogrande Golf Club, in 1964.

Designed by the finest golf designer of the age, Robert Trent Jones, it gave Sotogrande a gilded golfing paradise for the elite.

McMicking later went on to design the Valderrama Golfing Club, rated Europe’s best course.

And a quarter of a century after McMicking’s death, the resort’s enduring popularity and beauty is a fitting tribute to McMicking’s vision.
