When should I Play Golf in Costa Del Sol?
The area in Southern Spain is blessed with pleasant weather all year round, an average of 320 days of sun a year. Enjoy the attractive beaches, a range of leisure facilities and superb restaurants for most of the year whilst taking a break.
The best season to visit the region is springtime (April to May) or autumn (September to October). Due to the temperate climate and smaller crowds at that time. The diverse offerings of Spain mean that you can find something to appreciate at any time of year.
Summers can be very hot, particularly in the south, and there is a higher volume of tourists. Cooler temperatures in the north make it the perfect option during the summer if you're worried about the temperature.
Winter temperatures rarely fall below 15c in the region so golf is enjoyed on the Costa del Sol all year round.
