Andalucia is an excellent destination for a golfing break or holiday, with over 70 golf courses in the region, half of which are on the Costa del Sol. An ideal combination of the mild climate, with year-round fine weather and sunshine, and beautiful locations, whether seaside or inland, makes Andalucia the favourite golfing holiday destination for many people. In fact, the Costa del Sol is the most popular golf destination for European golfers, and is increasingly known as the Costa del Golf. It boasts a staggering 40 courses within 100 km.
On the West End of the Costa del Sol in the Sotogrande-Alcaidesa area are 11 Golf courses, with the famous Valderrama amoung them and the only links course in southern Europe, Alcaidesa Links, in 2011 considered by the magazine Golf World to be one of the 20 best Links courses on the European continent. Many tournaments have been played at Alcaidesa Links, such as 2 PGA of Andalusia, in 1993 and 1994, 1 PGA of Spain in 1995, The Ryder Cup Junior Match U.S. against Europe in 1997.
Many people who come to Alcaidesa for a golfing holiday prefer to rent accommodation instead of staying in a Hotel. Most of them are on or near the golf course, to make the most of the stunning, peaceful views of the beautifully maintained lush green fairways and, if you’re on a links course, of the sea.
