Costa del Sol Golf Courses

The Costa del Sol is the golfers’ paradise, the region between Sotogrande and Málaga has become one of the biggest areas for golf in the last decade. Golf is without question the sport of the Costa del Sol hence the adopted name for the coast, “The Costa del Golf”.

With more than 70 golf courses, each of them located along the long and narrow coastline, the area accounts for the biggest concentration of golf courses in the world! In the surrounding area of Marbella alone, there are 20 courses, it’s not surprising the coast is the European Golf Capital of the World.

The facilities are of the highest possible standard with a wide variety of course styles from classic and traditional such as Mijas Golf to dramatic and hilly such as La Cala or Alhaurin. There are courses aimed at novice and family usage and wonderful links courses where the golfer can play right next to the sea.

With numerous driving ranges and golf schools, the beginner can learn to play and the expert can improve his technique in the warmth of the Costa del Sol sun. It’s not surprising that so many golfers each year choose the Costa del Sol as their holiday destination or their permanent residence.

At any time of the year, famous golf celebrities such as Robert Trent Jones, Sergio Garcia, or Miguel Angel Jimenez can be found at the golf clubs or relaxing in the fine restaurants, which are able to satisfy the most discerning of clients.

Whilst there are many new courses being opened or under construction, the demand to play is such that it is necessary to reserve tee times in advance. This is particularly important during the high seasons of mid February to the end of April and October to December. Excellent golf and quieter courses can be found during the hotter summer months, take a buggy and plenty of water and you will have no problems.
