Spain is one of Europe’s best locations for golfing holidays. Its weather is unmatched on the continent and it has some of the finest courses in the world. If you are looking for a golf holiday in Spain, which location offers the best courses and the most to do when you are not on the golf course?
There are many different destinations to choose from in Spain. These are just some of your options.
Barcelo Montecastillo Golf – Sevilla
This resort offers some of the best golf in the Costa de La Luz. Golfers can enjoy an 18 hole par 72 Parkland course designed by Jack Nicklaus, which used to host the Volvo Masters. It’s close to the town of Jerez, which offers a great mix of culture and beeches. The airport is also within close proximity.
Melia Villaitana – Alicante
This 4-star resort near Benidorm is ideal for a golf holiday in Spain. It offers two Nicklaus design golf courses: an 18-hole par 72 Championship course and an Executive 18-hole course par 62 course. The second course is set over a smaller amount of land so is ideal for a relaxed round.
Hotel La Manga Principe Felipe – Murcia
Here three Championship standard courses await. The North course is ideal for high handicapper, whilst the South and West courses provide real tests for mid to low handicap players.
La Cala Golf Resort and Spa – Malaga
This resort is set within a nature reserve. It offers three courses within an idyllic setting. Each course offers a unique challenge as the land's natural features have been utilised in the construction.
Recommendations from other golfers who have experienced a golf holiday in Spain could also be worth considering. But recommendations from fellow golfers in the clubhouse probably won’t give you an understanding of life off the course, so tour operators specialising in golfing breaks should be contacted, even if you’ve decided on a course to play or a location to visit.
