Being located under 3 hours from the UK and with year around sunshine, Spain is the perfect destination for short golf breaks or longer golf holiday.  But with so many regions and golf courses to choose from, what are the best Golf Destinations in Spain?

Difficult answer, I know! Here are some of our favourite resorts:


Sotogrande is a region within the Costa del Sol which is easily accessed by flying into either Gibraltar or Malaga airports.  This small marina town is home to a nice range of bars, restaurants and hotels, but more importantly some of the best golf courses in Europe.


Within a 10-minute drive you will find yourself on the first tee of:

  • Real Sotogrande with its fabulous Old and New Courses
  • Alcaidesa Resort with the Links and Heathland Courses
  • La Reserva Resort which features a great hotel, luxurious villas and apartments and a stunning golf course
  • Valderrama – a course that is on the must play list of almost every golfer on the planet!


There are more Michelin Starred Restaurants per capita in Girona than anywhere else in the world, so even if your golf stinks, at least you know that you will eat well!


There are lots of great golf courses in Girona, but the pick of the bunch has to be the PGA Catalunya Resort.  Home to the Tour and Stadium Courses, this world class resort offers great accommodation and world-class practice facilities.  The Stadium Course also won the accolade of being the Best Golf Course in Spain – quite an achievement, don’t you think?



Majorca is often overlooked as a golf holiday destination, which is a huge mistake! The island climate is superb, the night life vibrant and the golf everything you’d wish.

The pick of the courses on this relatively small island are:

  • Alcanada Golf
  • Canyamel Golf
  • Golf Son Gual
  • Son Muntaner Golf


What a place this is!  Las Colinas Golf and Country Club is a relatively new resort of luxurious property built around a simply wonderful golf course.


It is fair to say that there are better golf course layouts in other parts of Spain, but the overall combination of the quality feel, course presentation, first class service and a very good golf course combine to make Las Colinas a very special place to visit and play golf


Last but certainly not least is the Costa Del Sol. We have already spoken about the region of Sotogrande but some of the other areas closer to Malaga certainly deserve a mention.


The resort of La Cala with three great courses is well worth a mention when you take a price/quality ratio into account. But if you are looking for pure quality a visit to the Finca Cortesin is a must!   With a host of awards to its name, you can rest assured that the inspectors did a good job when this visited this golf resort.

The hotel is outstanding, the staff are superb and the golf course will make you want to play again and again.  Frankly, we didn’t want to leave!

What about you, have you visited a Spanish golf resort? What’s your favourite?
