For most golfers, this destination needs no introduction. From spectacular views, great weather and a selection of fantastic courses to choose from, it is the place most golfers think of when they consider taking a holiday in Spain. Whether you want to test yourself at Valderrama (consistently voted number one course in Spain) or the nearby Real Club Sotogrande, or want to try a different track none of your friends have played, there are over 50 top rated golf clubs to choose from in this idyllic stretch of coast. For a Golf resort, Finca Cortesin, The Westin La Quinta or La Cala are exceptional choices offering a degree of luxury to compliment the nearby golf. In La Cala, we would suggest the Americas course as slightly preferable to the Asia course, but they are both well worth a visit. If you prefer your putting accompanied with a view, Alcaidesa Links offers some stunning vistas across the bay to Gibraltar, while Santana has stunning views of the Mijas mountains and Los Naranjos is another championship course of great quality. Rio Real is set in beautiful parkland running down to the sea, and Aloha, while shorter than some courses is a great parkland course with a high level of technical difficulty. La Zagaleta contains a nature reserve so you may find your round shares space with deer, as well as stunning picturesque views. A buggy is well recommended. Mijas offers two very good tracks, Lagos which as the name suggests has it’s share of water hazards, and Olivos, which has more trees, smaller greens and narrower fairways to contend with. La Reserva is one of the best courses in the area with five tee options and wide fairways to offer a good round to all levels of players. There are further courses to play – the only limit here being to the time and energy you have to explore.
