Costa del Sol is one of Europe’s top golf destinations attracting many golfers from all over Europe. With the Malaga Airport as a gateway to over 60 courses, Costa del Sol became an ideal place for golfing weekends and a golf breaks.
The most tourists are coming from northern Europe who make the most of the budget airline and head down to the south of Spain for a few days where they rent a car and play several courses over a few days or book a hotel for a couple of days. With over 300 days of sunshine a year this short golf break is a year round option. It’s very common to select off season for a golf holidays when flights are cheaper and there are plenty good deals on accommodation.
It’s not a simple decision to choose a place to stay for your golfing holiday. First stop westwards from Malaga is Torremolinos. Sixty years ago Torremolinos was a small fishing village but then tourism arrived and it expanded in all directions and Torremolinos became a famous tourist resort. Benalmádena is the next resort along the coast with all the same facilities as its neighbour town but with advantage of a great marina area with a selection of good restaurants and bars. Fuengirola has the most spanish visitors of these three resorts, all of which provide easy access to inland courses.
