Golfing in Caliente Spain
Spain is one the most popular golfing destination in continental Europe, with 313 courses to choose from and a climate that can be relied upon year-round.
The coastal regions – the Costa Brava, the Costa del Sol, and, increasingly, the Costa de la Luz – are the most appealing for holiday golfers. The Balearic and Canary Islands have so much to offer too.
Don’t stay home this summer.
Malaga is a good gateway for many of the golf courses of Andalucia. The city is easy to reach from all Europe cities.
More than 50 courses to choose from along the Costa del Sol, the oldest of which – and the closest to the airport.
Every golfer has his favourite, but several of the Spanish courses regularly appear in lists of the best courses in Europe.
A golfing holiday doesn’t need to break the bank.
And wherever you decide to play there are ways of keeping costs down. If you are taking your own clubs with you on holiday, this might have a bearing on the airline you choose to use. Any of the low-cost airlines will charge extra to carry sporting equipment, in addition to normal check-in baggage charges. So, club hire sometimes is cheaper and you can choose your dream golf set to play with.
Many golf resorts also provide facilities for other activities to fill the hours when you are not on the course – or to occupy other members of the party who may not be golf aficionados.
A popular example of this is La Manga Club, which began life as a golf course in a residential development. Now it is a major resort covering an area the size of Monaco, with a five-star hotel, self-catering apartments, restaurants and bars, a spa, tennis facilities and three championship golf courses.[...]
