Golf Courses In Andalucia


Golf is no longer an elitist sport and at any time of the year there are players of all levels, from all walks of life participating in this healthy and relaxing past time. Golf and tourism go hand in hand with golfers making Spain their premier destination in Europe.

The Costa del Sol, known also as the Costa del Golf has gone golf crazy with thousands of players passing through Malaga airport every year and heading for any one of the fine courses – some of which have sprung up almost overnight.

Whilst some are strictly for the experienced such as the world famous Valderrama, others welcome experienced and novices alike. Some have a peculiar character like the unique floodlight course of Dama de Noche in Marbella, the stunning coastal course of Alcaidesa Links or the fabulous La Cala de Mijas courses, set in breathtaking countryside.

The added attraction is that whatever time of the year you come to the Costa del Sol you can play golf – and enjoy some very attractive offers on green fees and hire costs during the summer months. Many courses invite visitors to play in local tournaments provided they reserve in advance.

A bonus here too is the parador located in the same manicured and well cared for gardens and grounds. There is a pleasant restaurant and café, large swimming pool, club and buggy hire, shop and bar.
