Why Marbella is a haven for golfers

March 1st, 2022 |

There is a good reason why the Costa del Sol is also known as the Costa del Golf. With over a hundred golf courses and perfect weather, Marbella is the ideal place to play a few rounds, but these are just a few reasons out of many. We are going to go over some main reasons why Marbella is the place you should be playing golf. 


High-quality golf courses

The south of Spain has always been a popular golfing location, and this is due partly to its high quality and incredibly well-designed courses. With a range of courses that offer spectacular views of either the sea, mountains, Gibraltar or the African Coastline, there is little wonder why Marbella attracts so many golfers every year. With courses that are designed by famous golfing legends such as Gary Player, it is a guarantee that you will enjoy every second that you spend on the greens. 

Perfect weather to play, all year round

Whilst Spain is known for its great weather, it is Marbella that steals the show. With over 300 days per year of sunshine, it is almost certain that you will have the perfect weather to play a round of golf or two. Its perfect location between the sea and the Sierra Blanca makes it into the ideal suntrap, whilst the gentle breeze from the sea will keep you cool as you play a few holes.

Courses for players of every level

With such a range of high-quality courses in Marbella, you can also expect to find a wide range of courses for every player, regardless of their handicap. Whether you are a novice or a pro – Marbella is sure to have a green perfect for you. Some courses even cater to all handicaps, such as the Club de Golf Finca Cortesin. Whilst, on the other hand, the Aloha Golf course is well known for its challenging holes that require strategic thinking to get to the hole whilst avoiding the various hazards and trees used throughout the course.

Golf tours

With more than 70 golf courses to choose from on the Costa del Sol, if you want to play the best holes and have an amazing time, then a golfing tour is a must. There is a vast range of companies in Marbella that offer chauffeur service between the best courses on the coast, or directly to courses of your choosing. This means that you can enjoy a cold beer whilst you play a game with friends or colleagues, without getting stressed trying to find your way to each course.

With a variety of cars and styles, you can decide exactly how you want to experience Marbella’s golfing lifestyle. With golf tour operators such as Marbella in Style offering various transportation options ranging between a more business Mercedes E class or the luxury S class, with the additional option of the stylish Mercedes V class or Mercedes minibuses for larger groups of people.

Golfing holidays

For the golfers who just want to enjoy the Marbella golf scene, and worry about little else, there are plenty of companies on the coast that offer golfing, green fees, and accommodation services. So no longer will you need to trawl through pages upon pages of hotels and golf courses, trying to find the perfect ones for you. 

Companies such as Hole In One offer this exact service. All you need to do is pick the package that appeals most to you, whether that be based on the accommodation offered or the courses included in the pack, and enjoy. From the moment you purchase the package, everything else is taken care of – from ensuring that you have a buggy on every course right up to the travel insurance for your trip – you won’t have to worry about a thing.
