It all began in the mid-80’s when a small group of golfers got their heads together and decided to look for land which was large enough for an 18-hole golf course and practice facilities, and also spacious enough for a small residential development.
The group was headed by John Jenkins, a publisher, and Colin Mosely, a qualified engineer and designer with 25 years management experience.
Although the chosen site was considerably larger than planned, the plot was considered to be particularly appealing, offering splendid views of the mountains and sea and situated amongst dense pine and cork oak forests. Access to the area from the main road(N-340) was excellent, and the new planned motorway network would further enhance accessibility. Another major plus was the fact that the project was in the municipality of Marbella and well served by international airports and only two hours air travel from most European capitals.
The proliferation for time share developments, the increase in non-British golfers, and better tourism promotion contributed to the ideal conditions to start the project.
