What makes Costa del Sol a popular golfing destination?

Access to this area is becoming increasingly easy with flights to Malaga Airport from almost every major airport in the UK at extremely affordable rates. Golf travel in the Costa del Sol is becoming more and more popular with the golf courses and hotels only getting bigger and better. It simply has something for everyone. Whether you are looking for vibrant nightlife or to indulge in true Spanish culture, the Costa del Sol is the ideal golf destination in Europe.

Golf in Costa del Sol

Costa del Sol is home to 70 golf clubs; among this array of grounds, there are certain favourites shown in our client feedback.

Real Club Valderrama

Real Club Valderrama is home to the Volvo Masters, Ryder Cup, and World Golf Championship, and is worthy of being voted as Europe’s number one golf course. With tee times restricted to between 11.30 and 14.00 for outsiders, Valderrama is underplayed and always in excellent condition. Play it, if you can justify paying the green fee, you’ll remember it forever.

La Reserva de Sotogrande

La Reserva de Sotogrande is the longest course on the coast, measuring 6721 meters, but thankfully there are five tee positions so everyone can play it. Walking among the indigenous cork trees and gazing across to the glistening Mediterranean and distant Rock of Gibraltar, you’re sure to believe there is nowhere better to play golf. 

Finca Cortesin

Finca Cortesin is set in a dramatic valley, the course stretches to over 7,000 yards, but we wouldn’t recommend playing from the black tees… trust us, it’s plenty tough enough from the yellow! The course offers so many wonderful holes that it is difficult to choose one for special recognition. Although, one of our favourites would have to be the short par 4, 4th hole which is a great risk and reward hole.

Fuengirola is one of the biggest and most acclaimed resorts on the Costa del Sol, and a popular choice for all ages. The promenade stretches from one end of the resort to the other along the beachfront. It is home to most of the tourist shops, bars, and restaurants. If you explore and head inland away from the promenade, the town has still retained much of its Spanish charm.

Where is the best golf in Costa del Sol?

Among our expertise here as Golf Escapes, it was an easy and mutual decision to give this place to Finca Cortesin. This 7,000-yard course offers many amazing holes to play. Just a few years ago, Finca Cortesin became the first course in Spain to relay its greens with environmentally friendly Bermuda grass. The result is a putting surface like no other we’ve experienced, receptive yet lightning-quick and exceptionally true.

How many golf courses are in Costa del Sol?

Costa del Sol is home to over 70 golf courses and counting. This ever-growing destination is an essential addition to your next golf escape.

Why is Costa del Sol good for golf?

There is so much Costa del Sol has to offer, even for the non-golfers out there. With its range of immaculate courses, resorts, activities, and attractions, Costa del Sol has something for everyone.

Which is the nearest airport to the Costa del Sol?

There are two airports that are best to use for flight to the Costa del Sol.

Málaga Airport – AGP (North Costa del Sol)

Gibraltar – GIB (South Costa del Sol)

How much does a Costa del Sol golf holiday cost?

Entry-level 3-night, 2-round packages start from £229 and expand to our higher range of luxury 5* resort experiences.

Where is the best luxury hotel in Costa del Sol?

SO/ Sotogrande is situated on a hilltop with breathtaking mountain and sea views. The accommodations are on two levels in groups of villas set around the central area which contains the hotel reception, bar, and restaurant. This estate is close to the marina, which is home to some excellent restaurants. This resort features the 27-hole Almenara golf course on site.

Where can I visit for a budget golfing weekend?

We have 3 options to inspire your next budget golfing weekend. First up, we would like to mention Santa Maria. The course offers spectacular views as it travels along undulating land into the foothills of the mountains. Although not long, the narrow fairways make accuracy a priority on this course designed by ex-Ryder Cup player Antonio Garrido.

Next is the amazing Marbella Golf & Country Club. Designed by Robert Trent Jones, Marbella GC is a long course that features opening holes crossed by ravines, which require accurate and brave tee shots. Typical of the architect, the course utilizes the local vegetation to the fullest extent possible.

Last but not least is Lauro golf course. This inland parkland course lies 300 meters above sea level on flat terrain. Located only 12 km from Malaga airport, this course is set among pine, cork, olive, and citrus trees in a rural area.
