Costa del Sol Golf Courses

Pinterest

Costa del Sol GolferThere are now more than 60 Costa del Sol Golf Courses stretching from Sotogrande in the west to the lesser known Velez Malaga in the east and they all have one thing in common – the fantastic sunny and dry climate allowing golfers to play all year round.  For those who are used to playing golf in the cold and wet of a northern European winter it will be a real luxury to play on a Costa del Sol winter’s day.

There are Costa del Sol golf courses to suit all levels of players and they are set in some beautiful surroundings, many with views of the sea and mountains.

Here we have tried to list all of the courses in the area with some details about each one.  We have given the par and length of each of them according to competition play so these will vary depending on which tee each golfer uses.
