Spain is an ideal destination for a golfing holiday. Whether you are going for a week or two or just a long weekend, there are plenty of destinations and plenty of courses. With super cheap flights and deals, you can even pop over for just a round or two and fly back home again. The beauty of golf holidays in Spain is that they suit the solo golfer, the golfer going with a bunch of fellow players, or even for the family.
There are high quality courses all over mainland Spain and the Spanish islands. Most players head to the Costas or the islands, simply for the joys of the warmer weather but there are some interesting and challenging courses inland too. With over 300 Spanish courses to choose from the only issue is which to try first. Many opt for the Costa del Sol, which has in recent years, become so synonymous with golf holidays in Spain that it is now known as Costa del Golf.
The number of clubs continues to grow with world class designers being invited to create championship standard courses, such as the PGA standard courses at PGA Catalyuna Stadium and Real Sotogrande. Most golfers are familiar with the name Valderama, the course that hosted the Ryder Cup in 1997 and El Saler certainly shouldn’t be forgotten, given that it was named Best Golf Course in Continental Europe when it opened in 1968. Most golf clubs in Spain offer facilities to visiting players.
Alongside these top names and the increasing popularity of the game comes more golf oriented resorts with luxury hotels and all the add-ons expected, including all-inclusive options, ideal for all the family.
With golf holidays in Spain, no wife should feel like a golf widow, nor should children feel abandoned by a parent who wants to spend days on the greens. There is so much to do on holiday in Spain.
