GREENS' MAINTENANCE ON ATALAYA'S NEW COURSE

Located only minutes from Marbella, Estepona, and Benahavis, Atalaya Golf & Country Club offers golfers of all handicap ranges one of Costa del Sol’s finest golfing experiences and features two 18-hole courses.

The elegant and mature championship Old Course, with spectacular views of the La Concha mountain, features wide and gentle sloping park-like fairways. The seventy-one par New Course, with gorgeous views of the Mediterranean and Gibraltar, challenges golfers with its tight and undulating fairways and large, fast rolling greens.

In preparation for hosting the Gecko Pro Tour for a two-day tournament on the New Course on December 13th and 14th, Atalaya’s greenkeepers carried out numerous maintenance tasks to assure that the course would offer the tournament’s professional players the finest of playing conditions.

Included in the work that was done was verticutting, where the greens are moved vertically to assure a faster playing surface, mowing, and “Green Sweep” topdressing.
