Spain Golf Holiday Destinations
Spanish golf holidays, no matter the time of year, are generally blessed with sunshine; in fact, the Murcia region on the Costa Blanca claims the most hours of sunshine per year of any on the continent. While Spain's south is its most popular, the Costa Brava is the country's emerging star - the Girona area is home to some of Europe's top courses. While the upstarts are attracting some attention, the Costa Del Sol in the Andalucia region is still the king of Spanish golf.
Just north of Gibraltar, the San Roque and Sotogrande area is littered with famous names including Valderrama, and is the perfect complement to the action to the east; not far from Malaga's international airport there are resorts of outstanding quality, as well as the endless list of fantastic courses that surround Marbella and the famous Puerto Banus. Whether you like to unwind on a golf holiday or see a bit of evening action, Spain has a golf holiday that is perfect for you.
Recommended Resorts for a Golf Holiday in Spain
Set within the magnificent rolling hills of Mijas and just 30 minutes from Malaga International Airport, La Cala is one of the finest golf resorts in Andalucía. La Manga has for many years set the benchmark for golf holiday destinations in mainland Europe and following a recent refurbishment programme, the 5* Hotel is more luxurious than ever. Less than 2 miles away from the buzzing town of Benidorm the Melia Villaitana Resort has become one of the most popular in Spain, reminiscent of a small village with everything you could possibly need within walking distance making it the perfect place for both families and groups of golfers.
Away from the mainland the 5* Ritz-Carlton Abama is a phenomenal destination, set on a dramatic cliff top overlooking the Atlantic Ocean it is the perfect venue for a luxury golf or leisure holiday.
