As might be expected of a high end and luxury community, the facilities and activities offered to residents and visitors are equally first rate.
Golf and Polo
The Real Club De Golf Sotogrande, opened in 1964, is considered to be one of the masterpieces of golf course designer Robert Trent Jones, as well as his first European course.
The first Polo ground was laid out in 1965 and that Santa Maria Polo Club is now one of the best clubs in the world, with seven polo grounds, four of which are World Class.
Tennis has been available since 1965 and later on Paddle, with the more recent addition of four clay courts and five glass-walled paddle courts at La Reserva Club.
The Real Club Maritimo de Sotogrande was established in 1980 and endorsed by His Majesty The King, Don Juan Carlos I. The club organises several regattas through the year. There is also an RYA training facility. Kayakers, windsurfers, and kiteboarders are also catered for.
For the less active, there are a number of gentle walks within the community. They are through areas of marinas, beach, and dunes that have been preserved in their natural state, untouched by the developers. These protected areas are a haven for endemic flora and fauna. Sotogrande also lies beneath the flight path of the main migratory route taken by European birds flying to and from Africa. It is not unusual to see, in season, flights of eagles and vultures traversing the Gibraltar Strait, high in the deep blue sky above Sotogrande.
