There are good reasons why the Costa del Sol region of Spain is so frequently referred to as the ‘Costa del Golf’ – more than 70 of them, in fact, this being the number of courses available to be experienced between Torre del Mar and Sotogrande.
You won’t find such a rich concentration of golf courses anywhere else in Europe. So, if you’re looking for somewhere picturesque and sun-drenched as a place to tee off, with generous amenities, you won’t be disappointed.
But what are some of the best ways to ensure you extract the maximum amount of fun out of your next golf-focused break in this part of Andalucia?
Think carefully about the time of year you come here
On a certain level, it’s easy to decide when to book a golf vacation on the Costa del Sol, for the simple reason that the weather here is fabulous during any given month. Even in the winter, you probably won’t feel the need to pile on the layers, whether near or away from the course.
That being said, it isn’t the summer that sees the peak levels of activity on Costa del Sol golf courses, but instead the spring and autumn. If you do book a golf break here for the summer, you can avoid the most intense heat by teeing off first or at the end of the day.
Do your research into the various golf courses here
You might imagine that a part of the world that serves up so many golf courses in such close proximity would offer a lot of variety in terms of layouts and level of challenge – and in the case of the Costa del Sol, you would be exactly right to think that.
Whatever your present level of capability as a golfer – or even whether there are great variances in skill levels across the members of your travelling party – you can be sure of finding a course, or several, to suit.
And taking advantage of our Marbella, Estepona, and Fuengirola golf transfers – to cite just some of the Andalucian destinations we serve – will make it all so much easier, by whisking you conveniently from one course to the next during your break.
Make sure you immerse yourself in the other charms of the Costa del Sol
No matter how dedicated a golf enthusiast you might be, it is unlikely that the golf courses themselves will be the sole reason you are particularly drawn to this area of southern Spain. So, why not tap into the many other pleasures that the Costa del Sol offers, ranging from the opportunity to see cultural and heritage sites, to fine dining establishments and a thriving nightlife?
Again, this is something that we can help you with here at Simply Shuttles, providing the transfer services that will ensure you and any fellow travellers are not left waiting around between destinations and wasting time.
But it also greatly pays to do your research in advance into the bars, clubs, restaurants, and other attractions and activities you might be particularly interested in experiencing here.
Seek out the best green fees
Looking back to the golfing itself, and keeping on the subject of advance research, it’s also a great idea to research what the green fees are for whatever specific courses you have in mind for your trip. The websites of the various golf courses should provide details on the latest discounts and green fee deals they make available, which might influence the itinerary you put together.
