With mild and dry weather conditions practically all year round and more than 90 golf courses in the region, the Costa del Sol is affectionately known by many as the ‘Costa del Golf’. Drawing thousands of enthusiasts of the game all year round, golf courses on the Costa del Sol have some of the finest layouts in continental Europe, characterised by immaculate greens, tropical palms and often spectacular views of the Mediterranean.
With a number of excellent courses to suit a variety of skills and desires as well as a wide ranging choice of resorts, the Costa del Sol is a remarkable golf destination, perfect for a memorable golf holiday in Spain!
There are over 90 golf courses and golfing resorts in the southern Spanish region of Andalucia. 70 of those golf courses can be found dotted along the Costa del Sol, four of which are ranked amongst the top 10 in Europe. Considered among some of the most prestigious courses in the world, the famous stretch of coastline includes the highly rated Valderrama Golf Club, the San Roque Golf Club, La Reserva and Los Naranjos.
Golf is a great activity for group holidays as it can be enjoyed by beginners and seasoned players alike, and the Costa del Sol enjoys a unique micro-climate of an average of 325 days per year of sunshine. While conditions are ideal year-round, the milder Autumn/Winter months between November-February are often considered to be the best months to book a golf break in Spain. Characterised by crystal clear blue skies, bright sunshine and a perfect 15-20 degree breeze, a round of golf can be enjoyed by foot or buggy and topped off with a light lunch and drink in the sun!
