Golf Courses In Costa Del Sol

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.
Real Club de Campo de Malaga This links course was the first to be built on the Costa del Sol and, after almost 80 years when golf was almost unknown amongst the Spanish, its facilities are still maintained in excellent condition.

One part of the course faces onto the beach and the other follows through attractive avenues of trees and shrubs, providing a non too challenging game. 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.

Valderrama The most well known golf course in Spain and amongst the top 10 in Europe, Valderrama hosted the Ryder Cup in 1997 and the World Championships of 1999-2000. Designed in the mid 70’s by Robert Trent Jones and initially called Las Eras, Valderrama has undergone certain modifications over the years with the help of famous golfers such as Severiano Ballesteros. The most interesting hole for the spectator, and definitely not the player, is the par 5 17th which features a green with bunkers behind and slopes down to the lake.
