Featuring top-class courses, year-round great weather, sun-kissed beaches and a vibrant nightlife, the Andalucia region is the perfect place for your dream golf holiday.

It comprises more than a fifth of Spain’s entire landmass and benefits from an incredible climate all year round, so it’s no surprise it caters for all your golf needs.

With more than 100 golf courses, you will be spoiled for choice when – and let’s face it, once you’ve read this and got the lowdown on what you can expect, it’s when rather than if – you jet off for that holiday of a lifetime.

Macdonald Resorts is one of the UK’s top hospitality brands, with dozens of destinations at home and abroad, and no fewer than four of its resorts are within easy reach of Malaga Airport and just a stone’s throw from some of the very best golf courses in the whole of Europe.

What’s more, they will take care of your airport transfers, leaving you free to make the most of your break in the sun and focus on making your golf break the very best it can be.

Dona Lola, Leila Playa, Villacana and La Ermita all offer a welcome as warm as the Andalucian sun for golfers and non-golfers alike, with incredible facilities on offer at all four.

From Marbella, La Quinta and El Chaparral to Cabopino, Mijas and El Paraiso, there are plenty of great courses to pick from. Limited tee times are also available at Valderrama and Sotogrande. And if you’re not sure which course is best for you, don’t worry – Macdonald Resorts will find the perfect venue to suit every level of ability in your group. Simply tap into their local knowledge to make sure your itinerary is tailored to your every need.

Macdonald’s Silver, Gold and Platinum packages mean there are options to suit every budget. If competitive golf is more your thing, Macdonald has that covered too. Thanks to its Spanish golf open golf tournament holidays, club golfers can enjoy a competition week with the focus on friendly competition and socialising with like-minded players.

Dates for 2024 and 2025 are still in planning but expect them to be around mid-February. There is a dedicated section on the website so keep an eye out for updates and get booked up.

Away from the golf courses, there is plenty to do if you want to play the tourist, too. Marbella and Fuengirola are home to numerous bars and

restaurants and a vibrant nightlife, and both are within striking distance and easily accessible from the Macdonald resorts.
