Can you really play golf right through the winter in Andalucia?

The Spanish region of Andalucia has plenty of amazing features to help it attract tourists each year, including miles of golden beaches, endless days of gorgeous weather, and plenty of things to see and do. And those “things to do”, it is fair to say, very much include golf.

While many holidaymakers flock to Andalucia during the summer months, we can let you in on something that not every traveller here knows: the winter golfing scene is just as vibrant, and often allows you a little more space and quiet to practise your perfect shot. 

But can you really play golf right through the winter in Andalucia? The short answer is yes, provided that you know where to look.

Where can you play golf in this part of Spain? 

The Málaga region is packed with excellent locations for golf, and many of these are available all year round. 

With the options on offer encompassing such courses as Antequera, Lauro Golf, and Añoreta Golf in the Málaga City and Axarquía regions, the likes of El Chaparral Golf Club and Golf Torrequebrada in the Torremolinos Benalmádena-Mijas areas, and La Quinta Golf Club and El Paraíso Golf in the locality around Marbella, Benahavís, and Estepona, it is fair to say you might find yourself doing a lot of golf-related travelling this winter. 

That, in turn, could give you all the more reason to enquire about our Sotogrande, Fuengirola, or Marbella golf transfers, so that you can be easily and comfortably whisked from golf course to golf course throughout your stay. 

It really couldn’t be quicker or more straightforward to book your private hire service with the team at Simply Shuttles, online right now. 

Top tips for golfing during the winter season 

Once you have found the perfect spot to win a hole in one, the next step is to get playing – and here are some top tips to help you make the most of your game. 

  • Wear gloves

Gloves are a must to combat the cooler temperatures. The material of the club can feel even icier when the mercury drops, so you should invest in good gloves to keep your swing strong!

  • Change your clubs

Speaking of clubs, it can be a good idea to switch from a 7 iron to a 5 iron to help you maintain the right distance. According to the professionals, golf balls don’t tend to travel as far in lower temperatures, so this adjustment can make a lot of sense for enabling you to get your shots as far as you can.

Final thoughts

A game on the “Costa del Golf” – as the region is often called – doesn’t have to be reserved to the summer months. With our insight and guidance, you can thoroughly enjoy a round of your favourite game no matter what time of year you visit Andalucia.
