For golfers, there’s a fantastic selection of golf courses to enjoy on a sunny vacation to the Costa Del Sol, from the La Cala Resort in Mijas, offering three unique championship courses designed by Cabell Robinson, to The Westin La Quinta Golf Resort & Spa in Benahavís, featuring three 9-hole courses designed by Manuel Piñero.

Recommended Golf Courses in the Murcia Region

The Murcia region sits on the Mediterranean coast with around 250km of exquisite coastline and an average temperature of 70°F.

On the Costa Cálida you’ll find La Manga Resort, a sport and leisure destination for active holidaymakers. Along with tennis, football, rugby and cricket amenities, you will find three 18-hole golf courses offering a collection of challenges for golfers of various abilities.

On the shores of Mar Menor, a unique 170-square kilometer saltwater lagoon, is Mar Menor Golf Resort, featuring a 72-par, 18-hole course designed by Jack Nicklaus that’s considered one of the most popular courses in the Murcia region. For another challenge set by Jack Nicklaus, head to El Valle Golf Resort for a desert-style course with unique mountain landscapes to enjoy.

Recommended Golf Courses in the Catalonia Region

Situated in northeastern Spain, the Catalonia region plays host to popular beach destinations along the Costa Brava, incredible views and visits to the Pyrenees Mountains, and an abundance of culture in the region’s capital, Barcelona.

The PGA Catalunya features two acclaimed courses, the Stadium Course being considered the number one golf resort across Spain. The resort has hosted the Spanish Open twice, as well as frequent European Tour tournaments. There’s also a golf academy, a wellness center, and plenty of quality restaurants to choose from.

Head to the Catalan capital and sample the challenging courses at Club de Golf Barcelona just 27km away. You will also find plenty of accommodation, a bar, a restaurant and a wellness retreat to enjoy during your stay. While you’re in the area, you may wish to spend some time at the Real Club De Golf El Prat Barcelona, which has hosted over 250 national and international championships over the years. Being just a 35-minute drive away from the city center, and considered the one of the finest golf clubs in the country, we’d say it’s definitely worth a visit.

Spain Reviews

Hotel Stay and Solheim Cup arrangements were terrific!

Rated 5.0 out of 5
October 14, 2023

The Don Pepe Hotel was wonderful in so many ways…the breakfast buffet was huge with omelets made to order, fresh fruit, cheeses, etc. Our welcome dinner the 1st night was great. The hotel swimming pool with plenty of lounge chairs was wonderful. The location next to the “boardwalk” with dining nearby was great. I tried several of the restaurants at the hotel and had tasty meals at each one. Buses to the Solheim Cup worked out fine, although they didn’t have enough space to get all the buses scheduled at the same time into the limited parking area. Opening ceremonies was nicely done, but the closing ceremonies were a bit disappointing. Should have had both teams on stage and talks by both captains. It was nice to have tickets for the 1st tee box each day.

The golf courses we played were nice and in good condition, but lots of uphill and downhill climbing even with carts. I never realized Southern Spain was soooo hilly.
