Guadalmina North is considered less complicated than Guadalmina Sur. Although it covers more ground, is more undulating and contains more trees and water hazards.
The Guadalmina River divides the course from north to south, and comes into play on the 17th. If this were not enough, there are lakes on holes 7, 9, 11 and 18. The course was designed by Folco Nardi and opened in 1972.
