Golf Holidays in Spain - Spain Travel Guide

Return to Travel Guide

As many experts know, Spain is one of the world's most highly ranked destinations for golfers, with hundreds of excellent, top-class golf courses countrywide, including the top ten golf courses in Europe as a whole.  Golfers are definitely spoiled for choice for great locations and if their partners, or children, don't indulge in the sport, there is plenty on offer to keep them busy too.

The following are just a few of the great coastal locations to give readers a taste of golfing in Spain. For more information on the best golf holidays and weekends away, visit Golf Escapes.

Costa Blanca

On the Costa Blanca, or "white coast," in the Alicante province of the community of Valencia, there are approximately twenty world-class courses and the number one ranked golf course is La Sella golf course in Denia.  Surrounded as it is by the Montgo natural park, it is both a challenging course but also a wonderfully scenic experience.

Yet another amazingly beautiful course is Ifach golf course in Moraira in the Calpe area, with the stunning "Peñón de Ifach" as an iconic backdrop.


Costa Brava, Catalonia

Next stop if the Costa Brava, which is the home of ten world class championship golf courses and is developing all the time with more.  As this area has a mild climate pretty much all year round, it is a popular destination for golfers.  With among some pretty amazing coastal views and mountain scenery, this area becomes even more popular each year and with its close proximity to the fascinating city of Barcelona, the coast offers the opportunity of a combined sightseeing and sport holiday of a lifetime.

Just a few of the excellent golf courses in this area are the PGA Golf de Catalunya Stadium, PGA Golf de Catalunya Tour, Emporda Forest and Golf Platja de Pals.

Costa del Sol

The Costa del Sol is not also dubbed the "Costa del Golf" for nothing.  This area in the south of Spain offers endless golfing opportunities along with endless stunning beaches for that combined holiday experience.

La Cala de Mijas is a perfect example, close to the Mijas coastline and just off the coastal highway, the area is known as premier golf resort with three excellent courses to choose from, one of which is pictured above.

Other great areas to visit for that coastal experience are Fuengirola and Benalmádena, but there are many excellent courses a little inland, with beautiful surrounding views, like Monte Mayor in Benahavis or the Valderrama golf course.  Of interest also is the Aloha Golf Club in upmarket and popular Marbella.

Whichever location you choose you are guaranteed a great golfing holiday, whether for a week or just a weekend, and the family will thoroughly enjoy themselves too.
