Spain Costa Del Sol Golf Vacation

Spain's climate and long hours of sunshine provide a perfect opportunity in which to practice the sport of golf. Each year, clubs and golf courses in Spain are visited by an ever increasing number of golf enthusiasts and professionals. This is why The Costa del Sol has come to be known as the Costa del Golf.

Fresh Atlantic winds, due to the proximity of the Straits of Gibraltar, mix with the mild Mediterranean winds and help to moderate the temperatures. All these factors contributed to the decision to hold various European PGA tournaments in Spain.

Grounds and facilities are kept in immaculate condition throughout the whole year and are unaffected by the harsh northern continental winter.

Itinerary

Day 1: Arrive in Spain

Make your way from the airport to the Westin La Quinta Hotel, a brand new 5-star deluxe property. A favorite also for its great location, the Westin La Quinta Hotel is a sunny refuge designed with golf enthusiasts in mind. Elegant accommodation with attention to detail is the hallmark of the hotel, found near sparkling and cosmopolitan Puerto Banus with its yacht harbor, renowned restaurants, bars, and shops.

Day 2: Golf at San Roque Golf Club

Enjoy your first round of golf at the San Roque golf club. Designed by Dave Thomas and Tony Jacklin; opened in 1965.

Day 3: Golf at Almenara Golf Club

The Almenara golf course has three nine-hole loops which have beautiful views of the Alemenara hills and are surrounded by pine trees and cork oaks. Repeatedly a host to the Volvo Masters Golf Tournament, this incredibly well designed course perfectly integrates two lakes as well as several streams.

Day 4: Golf at Valderrama Golf Club

Valderrama has been consistently listed as Europe’s #1 Golf course. Simply put, it is considered by many to be the best. Designed by Robert Trent Jones, openedin 1975, this course is a home to the Volvo Masters and host to the 1997 Ryder Cup.

Day 5: Golf at Los Naranjos Golf Club

Designed by Robert Trent Jones, long terraces, trees and large undulating greens are the unmistakable hallmarks of a Robert Trent Jones design. You will find a significant difference between the front 9 holes which are set in broad sweeping fairways with gentle slopes and the back 9 which are much flatter.

Day 6: Golf at the Royal Sotogrande Golf Club

Often voted amongst the top 10 courses in Europe, Sotogrande boasts well established vegetation with pine, cork, oaks, eucalyptus, and palm trees. The 16th, 17th and 18th seem to make the course appear longer than its 5853 meters but the great consolation is the total lack of rough on the immaculately groomed course.

Day 7: Golf at La Quinta Golf & Country Club

La Quinta is unforgiving, demanding accuracy and stamina. Luckily, you’ll have practiced on Spain’s finest courses this week. The long 15th with a dogleg to the left is rated as the most difficult hole. Designed by Manuel Pinero and Antonio Garcia Garrido. Opened in 1989.
