The Costa del Sol, the best European golf destination 2018, is joined by areas such as Murcia, the Valencian Community or the Costa Brava.

For many years Spain has become a favorite destination for European golfers. The great weather we have in the Iberian Peninsula, the quality of its golf courses and the fantastic alternatives that other types of tourism provide, make Spain a unique destination to play golf. However, where should you go to enjoy an amazing golf and tourism vacation? We present the four best golf destinations in Spain to you…

Where to enjoy golf on the Costa del Sol?

In 1997 the Ryder Cup was held for the first time in continental territory and it was in no other place than in the Real Club Valderrama Golf, in the heart of the Costa del Sol, since then the Costa del Sol was also called Costa del Golf . A name that honors an area where there are about 60 golf courses and that has an impeccable gastronomy and climate throughout the year.

In order to play golf on the Costa del Sol we can divide it into four zones:

– Golf in Malaga: This area has several unbeatable courses like the Real Club Guadalhorce Golf, El Parador de Málaga Golf or Lauro Golf. In addition, it is very culturally enriching for tourists due to the variety of museums that Malaga capital has.

– Golf in Mijas – Fuengirola: This intermediate area between Malaga and Marbella, has several high-quality golf courses such as Mijas Golf, Torrequebrada Golf or La Cala Golf Resort, a resort with 54 holes, among others.

– Golf in Marbella: …is the epicenter of golf on the Costa del Sol. It has a wide range of golf courses at the highest level. Furthermore, one of the most famous marinas in Europe, Puerto Banús. Among the courses, Cabopino Golf, Atalaya Golf, Real Club de Golf Guadalmina or Valle Romano Golf. It is a unique place to enjoy your golf vacation.

– Golf in Sotogrande: This area is home to the Real Club Valderrama Golf, Finca Cortesín, The San Roque Club or La Reserva Golf, all of them include incredible designs and excellent maintenance. You will play surrounded by great golfing memories and impressive Mediterranean forests.

Why play golf in Murcia?

However, it is also important to highlight the incredible golf courses that exist near Murcia capital, such as Altorreal Golf, a charming 18 hole course just 15 minutes from the city center. An interesting visit thanks to the leisure alternatives that the city of Murcia provides for all the companions who do not want to play golf or simply for those that have some free time between games.

Play golf in the Valencian Community

The Costa Blanca stands out for having a large number of good golf courses, such as La Finca Golf, Las Colinas Golf & Country Club, La Sella Golf, or Golf Villamartín, among many others. An area with many leisure alternatives prepared to receive all kinds of tourism, from a family getaway to a trip with friends.

We must not forget the golf offer that awaits us in the province of Valencia. Tours such as El Bosque Golf Club, La Galiana, Scorpion Golf Club and El Saler Golf Course, these last two which are both headquarters of the Spanish Open, make a good todo list for a few days of golf and leisure in ‘La Ciudad de las Fallas’.

What are the golf courses on the Costa Brava? 

The Costa Brava is another of the most demanded golf destinations in Spain and the presence of the PGA Catalunya Resort has a lot to do with it. This resort, which has two 18-hole courses, has repeatedly hosted the Spanish Open of the European Tour and several qualifying stages to obtain the Race to Dubai card. It is undoubtedly one of the best resorts to enjoy a demanding field and in optimal conditions. Although, nothing would be the same without mentioning the fields that accompany it such as Empordá Golf or the Costa Brava Golf.
