Costa del Almeria

Slightly lesser known than other regions, Costa del Almeria is peaceful and an ideal destination for some R&R and must be mentioned in our Guide to Golf in Andalucia. Mountain backdrops make up the views and there are plenty of stunning sandy beaches to soak up the sunshine after your round.

Practice your short game before stepping foot on this golf course, as this is where you will find the most challenges. It is ranked 7th in the Top 100 Courses in all of Spain.
