One of the most popular golf holidays in Spain, the Costa Del Sol is renowned for fantastic golf and nightlife. When taking a golf holiday in Costa Del Sol, the jewel in the crown of European golf is Valderrama; host to the Ryder Cup in 1997. This region enjoys beautiful landscapes, beaches and is rich in cultural heritage. There are more than 70 golf courses along the stretch of the coast. A golfer’s paradise, with the highest concentration of courses in continental Europe.
The area stretches from San Roque (near Gibraltar) all the way to Malaga. The larger golf resorts on the coast include Marbella, Estepona, Fuengirola, and Benalmadena; perfect for a holiday destination. In our opinion, this region provides some fantastic options for your golfing holiday. We love the golf courses around Marbella with Santa Maria, La Quinta, Rio Real and Cabopino being amongst our favourites. Prices from 30 Euros to more than 100 Euros depending on the time of year and the demands of the player.

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.
