Costa del Golf – a (W)hole in One Destination
Welcome to the Costa del Golf
Situated midway between the sea and the mountains, with 325 days of sun a year and an average annual temperature in the 20°Cs, the Costa del Sol promises perfect playing conditions all year round.
And as if that weren’t enough, there’s plenty of culture to soak up, as well as leisure activities and entertainment to pleasantly while away the hours. Not to mention the balmy beaches, stunning natural landscapes and excellent connections by air (Malaga international airport is the third largest in Spain), land (dual carriageways, motorways, high speed trains) and sea (over 11 marinas). All coming together to make the Costa del Sol, also known as the Costa del Golf, the favourite golfing destination in Europe.
A round of golf in stunning surroundings
The diverse range of course designs will make you want to come back year after year so you can discover more and more new courses. From pitch and putt to the most demanding holes, there is a seemingly endless array of golf courses to choose from. Diversity is one of the defining characteristics of the Costa del Golf; and there really is something for everyone. The golf courses regularly organise classes and championships for men and women of all levels. If you’re just starting out in the game, you’ll be pleased to know there is a large selection of golf schools and academies offering personalised classes, kids classes and special courses for players with reduced mobility, always taught by qualified instructors. Personal service, tailored to every group and every player, as well as excellent facilities where clubhouses become the epicentre of social life before and after each game, also combine to make the Costa del Golf the perfect destination for a round of golf or two.

Much more than golf
If anything characterises the Costa del Sol, it’s the limitless range of activities on offer. Extending far beyond the golf course, the choice of doing exactly what you want, whenever you want, makes the province of Malaga stand out from other destinations.
After a day of golf, you won’t be short on options for living the local culture and enjoying your leisure time. From feeling the warm sand underneath your feet and taking a dip in the azure waters of the Mediterranean to lazing in the sun before or after each game and strolling along the dynamic seafront promenades filled with shops and beach bars, you’ll find something you fancy doing. You can also visit the quintessentially Andalusian inland villages (there are 103 in the province), discover the exhibitions on at the various museums or wander the pretty streets of the capital, breathing in the culture and history.
Shopping is another wonderful way to spend your time. The historic centres of the towns and villages in the Costa del Sol are bursting with shops and markets where you can stroll around and browse unique items. The centre of luxury shopping is Puerto Banús, where the biggest brands in the world compete to attract your attention.
In terms of accommodation, the Costa del Sol is unbeatable with its diverse selection of high-quality places to stay. Whether you prefer a hotel or resort with its very own golf course, and specialising in golf holidays, or an apartment where you can relax between games and dream about your technique, you’ll find the perfect place for you. A number of hotels in the Costa del Sol also offer wellness centres, where you can be enveloped in an exclusive environment and gently coaxed into a deep state of relaxation.
And then, of course, there’s the incredible gastronomy, defined by its combination of traditional dishes and avant-garde twists. Complementing the food, is the dynamic night life. As the sun sets over the Costa del Sol, the seafront promenades, marinas, beach clubs, bars and pubs in the city centres come to life, creating the perfect end to the perfect day. The Costa del Sol is unique destination focused on golf and leisure time, with culture and food much-desired bonuses.
SOLHEIM CUP 2023
In September 2023, the Costa del Sol played host to the Solheim Cup at the mighty Finca Cortesin and it was truly a spectacle to behold, truly showcasing the quality of golf courses on offer. Organising such a great event and seeing Team Europe retain the cup on their home turf was something for the region to really be proud of.
