The Best Places to Play Golf in Spain

With more than 450 courses, wherever you travel in Spain you are bound to find world-class golf nearby, along with opportunities to visit historic cities and villages, enjoy beautiful weather, dramatic landscapes, wonderful gastronomy, and the country’s warm, welcoming people. There are fantastic golf courses around the country, from the northern Cantabrian coast around Santander, the homeland of Seve Ballesteros, to Andalucía in the south, the land of sun, the Mediterranean and Spain’s world famous Jerez (sherry). You can play courses designed by Robert Trent Jones, like the famous 1997 Ryder Cup venue, Valderrama, as well as courses designed by Jack Nicklaus, Tom Fazzio, Seve, and Jose Maria Olazabal – great courses, designed by great golfers, in fantastic settings with beautiful climates. These are only some examples of what golf lovers can find in Spain.


Costa del Sol: golf, shop and dine in style

The Costa del Sol, in the Andalusia region, is one of the favorite places to practice golf in Spain for many Americans tourists. Among its destinations, the town of Marbella shines with a special light. Marbella preserves its original traditional andalusian style in the “old town district” but it has successfully been adapted to meet the requirements of the most exclusive and elite visitors. Hotel and other accommodation facilities placed next to golf courses together with leisure and shopping complexes, luxury restaurants, spas, beach clubs, bars and pubs, make the golf lovers experience unforgettable. When in Marbella, pay a visit to the high end Marina “Puerto Banús”, a recreational port filled with shops, restaurants, discos and spaces to enjoy leisure time, to see and to be seen.


Valencia Region: a Mediterranean affair

In the Valencia region you will have the advantage of being able to practice their swing very close to its main cities (the city of Valencia, Alicante and Castellón de la Plana), full of history and heritage as well as examples of the most avant garde architecture (see the city of Sciences in Valencia city); a perfect combination that is good for the body and good for the soul. But above all, you will have the opportunity to enjoy the Spaniard’s Mediterranean way of life: mild weather, meaning that one can play golf here almost all year round, delicious local cuisine -did you know that Valencia is the home of our famous paella? —  or the unlimited benefits of a “siesta” after a game …..This destination offers you the chance to enjoy an exciting vacation combining  golf, culture and gastronomy, who can ask for more?


Costa Brava: where golf meets Dali

The Costa Brava(the name given to the coastal area of the province off Gerona, inn Catalonia-northeastern Spain) is becoming one of the most popular golf destinations internationally. The reason is simple: its magnificent location, on the shores of the Mediterranean sea, bordered to the north by the Pyrenees and its breathtaking landscapes, are beyond comparison. But also Costa Brava is the land of Dalí. Visit the Dali museum in the town off Figueres or the outstanding Salvador Dalí House in Salvador Dalí House in Cadaques. Art and golf at the tip of your fingers!
