Costa del Sol golf season starts

The too-hot days of summer have retreated and made way for the balmy, less testing temperatures that characterise autumn in the Marbella. It also means the start of the golf season and with over 70 courses to choose from on the Costa del Sol, players of the noble sport are truly spoilt.

Furthermore, not only are many of the courses on the coast designed to championship standards by some of the most famous names in course design, such as Robert Trent Jones, Perry Dye and Seve Ballesteros, but they are also landscaped to deliver an unbelievably aesthetic golfing environment.

For example, Santa Maria Golf Club in Elviria, not only has a clubhouse that offers some nineteenth century style, the views of the Mediterranean Sea and the mountains from its top tee are out of this world.

At the opposite end of the coast, San Roque Club and La Reserva Golf and Country Club in Sotogrande, are examples of sporting and leisure excellence. The San Roque clubhouse was once the family residence of the Domecq family of sherry making fame, and La Reserva is now one of the most exclusive clubs with its challenging course and deluxe clubhouse with top quality restaurant.

Nueva Andalucía is home to Marbella’s Golf Valley where you will find Las Brisas, Aloha and Los Naranjos golf clubs. Each one offers something unique, whether it is the rare trees from around the world that surround the fairways, or the spa services at Los Naranjos, while Aloha is now considered one of Europe’s top golfing venues.

Guadalmina golf club near San Pedro Alcántara, has the distinction of offering two courses: the Old course and the New course. The newer one is famous for its numerous water features, which add some spice to a round of golf, and its clubhouse is famously friendly and something of a social hub for Marbella golfers.
