Costa del Sol - Costa del Golf
This neighbourhood is also called The Costa del Golf. There are 30 beautiful courses within a half hour drive and 20 additional ones a little bit further. From parkland courses to the most challenging mountain courses. Almost all of them are nice but the choice of a course depends on your expectations. Which courses are you going to choose?
Are you going to take a challenge and enjoy the beautiful landscape around or are you going just for the score? In some courses is difficult to score , especially when it is you first time playing and you don’t know it. If you are a beginner then many courses may be too difficult for you. So here there are some tips: Although a certain handicap is required everywhere , we never had to show it. It was enough just to show our credit card. Have a look in the magazine Golf Guide for descriptions.
During high season, the prices of green fees are considerably higher than in low season. The seasons run from March to mid-May and from October to mid-November. In many courses the prices depend on the height and the flow and if you need a buggy or not (which is sometimes included in the price).
From June to mid-September and in the period between December and January, there are often attractive offers . You can see all of them at www.costadelsolgolfnews.com. We recommend that you do take a buggy during this period because of the heat , but this is usually included. Meanwhile, a number of opportunities to play can be found at attractive rates, even in high season.
Which golf course to play?
Because this area offers a lot of courses, it’s difficult to make a choice where to play. Do you like to play a mountainous or a parkland course? Do you prefer to walk or to take a buggy? Do you really need to play as good as your handicap suggests or do you prefer a course where you can practice when you just started. We like to make your choice a little bit more easy.
