When To Visit
Over the years it has become one of the most established coastal golf regions and attracts golfers from all walks of life.
The best season to visit Spain is springtime (April to May) or autumn (September to October) due to pleasurable temperatures and smaller crowds. That being said, the diverse offerings of the country mean that you really can find something to appreciate at any time of year.
Spain has a comparatively mild climate, mainly dry all year round. Summers can be very hot, particularly in the south, and there is a higher abundance of international tourists to highly regarded resort towns. 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 10 ° C. It could get cold and wet in the north, but the south would still be enjoyable.
