Marbella, with more than 30 golf courses, is one of the most in-demand holiday destinations for golf lovers – and a special 10% discount is being offered this winter.

The ‘Costa del Golf’, as it is affectionately known, boasts a cosmopolitan feel, superb atmosphere, fine array of restaurants, great hotels and a mix of nightlife that will suit all tastes – not to mention its beaches are among the best in Spain.

The principal pull for golfers is the sheer depth of quality when it comes to golf courses. One of the best is Finca Cortesin, a three-time host of the Volvo World Match Play on the European Tour.

The much-loved trio of layouts at Sotogrande will no doubt whet your appetite for a game, and it’ll be hard choosing which one to experience first. In reality, all three are wonderful to play, with Valderrama probably being the most famous of the lot.


But, do not discount the sheer quality of La Reserva, the newest of the three, or the original, Real Golf Club Sotogrande, a Robert Trent Jones masterpiece from 1963.

Very quickly, you will realise that the quality of golf in Marbella does not start and finish with the Sotogrande triumvirate. Estepona is popular venue for visiting golfers and boasts plenty of water hazards to keep you on your toes.

Another must visit great value venue is La Cala (main image), home to three golf courses all surrounded by the beauty of the Andalusian hills. One of the prettiest layouts in the area is Santa Maria, which plays out between small valleys of pine trees and cork oaks.

Other courses worth checking out are Marbella Country Club, Cabopino (above), Los Naranjos, Atalaya and La Quinta (below).
