Golf on the Costa del Sol
It is no accident that the Costa del Sol has been nicknamed the “Costa del Golf”. The region is already home to around 60 courses, and more are being added all the time.
Many of the courses are located in and around the big towns and cities such as Nerja, Marbella and Málaga. But even the smaller towns and villages have plenty of courses for you to take on – with prices ranging from around EUR 40–50 to hundreds. The most expensive – and the most exclusive – of them all is probably the Valderrama championship course in Sotogrande, Cádiz.
If you are looking for an absolutely crazy round of golf instead, then the Monte Mayor course could be more to your liking. It is a challenging course that visitors soon come to love or hate. The holes have been designed to incorporate the dramatic Spanish countryside and feature obstacles including steep ravines and babbling brooks. You are sure to have a golf experience with a difference, but forget about looking for your ball after a severe slice ...
In addition to these two unique examples, there are naturally all kinds of fine courses at reasonable prices all along the coast. If you are in the Marbella area, for example, we warmly recommend Los Naranjos and Marbella Golf Club.
