It’s no accident that the Costa del Sol – literally translated as “Coast of the Sun” – is routinely referred to as the ‘Costa del Golf’!
This region of southern Spain has a well-deserved reputation as a must-not-miss golfing destination, and some of the ingredients that feed its considerable success in this regard are more obvious than others.
Nonetheless, as leading providers of Costa del Sol golf transfers here at Simply Shuttles, we felt it was worth revisiting just some of the factors that make this area of Andalucia such a magnetic place for those wishing to tee off.
You couldn’t hope for a better environment in which to golf
Many of the finest reasons to go golfing on the Costa del Sol are much the same as those for embarking on any kind of recreational trip here.
With some 325 days of sun a year, average annual temperatures hovering in the twenties, and highly varied and jaw-dropping coastal and mountainous scenery, this part of Spain offers it all as far as captivating and hospitable surroundings in which to golf are concerned.
You could pick almost anywhere to golf on the Costa del Sol, and still be delighted by the idyllic backdrops you experience; and with the region being home to more than 70 world-class golf courses, those experiences can be different every time you visit.
All the required support and infrastructure is available
One thing that goes hand in hand with the Costa del Sol being replete with leading golf courses, is all the necessary support systems also being in place, whatever your background or experience in golf may be.
The sheer range of golf courses awaiting discovery in this part of Spain means there are great options for novices, as well as for more skilled and seasoned players who wish to test themselves on the most demanding holes.
Classes and championships are also routinely organised for men and women at all ability levels, and there are many fine golfing schools and academies here, with courses helmed by qualified instructors.
It all means that, whether you are holidaying here as someone with particularly specialised needs or you are a seasoned player who really does ‘just’ want to enjoy a round or two of golf on that essential business trip, you can expect to be suitably supported on the Costa del Sol.
There’s always something new to discover
From the urban attractions of Malaga and the sheer luxuriousness of Sotogrande, to Marbella – which boasts more golf courses than any other Spanish municipality – and Antequera with its fine history, culture and gastronomy, there are just so many destinations to discover when it comes to golfing breaks on the Costa del Sol.
Even during your downtime away from the golf course, you will be able to immerse yourself in a seemingly limitless array of activities in this richly rewarding area of Spain.
Whether you are a culture vulture, a keen shopper of prestige goods, a ‘people watcher’, or eager to feel the warm sand beneath your feet and tip your toes into the Mediterranean’s azure waters, you can expect your next golfing trip to Andalucia to tick every box.
