Tips For the Perfect Golf Vacation in Spain

Sep 15, 2008
The most popular destination for golfers in Spain is undoubtedly the Costa del Sol. So much so, that in recent years the area has become universally known as the 'Costa del Golf', which is perhaps not surprising given that there are more than 70 golf courses in this part of southern Spain, and 4 of those courses are included in the top 10 European golf courses.

The increasing popularity of this region is attributed to the all year round mild Mediterranean climate which attracts golfers from all over Europe and beyond.

A number of the golf courses in the Costa del Sol are prestigious championship courses and have played host to some of the worlds top golf tournaments like the Volvo Masters and the Ryder Cup.

Northern Europeans have for many years been taking winter golf vacations in Spain, they see it as the perfect escape from the harsh northern winters, and Spain has done everything it can to ensure that the golf experience they provide is the best it can be.

The quality of the accommodation on offer has been improving over recent years as well, and the real growth market has seen a huge increase in high end 5 Star resorts.

The summer months are the busiest time of year and sees demand for accommodation and tee times outstrip what the market can supply, and it is often almost impossible to find hotels and courses with availability during July or August.

Things to Consider to Guarantee a Great Vacation

1. If you want to take your golf vacation in Spain during the peak summer months, you will need to book very early. It is possible to obtain tee times for the most popular courses, but only if you book well in advance - you might even get a slightly reduced rate if you book early enough.

2. Consider taking your vacation between September and June, the climate is perfect for golf, and you should be able to negotiate a great deal on both hotel rooms and green fees.

3. The key to a perfect golf vacation is planning, planning, planning. Use the Internet to explore all your options, green fees, hotel rooms, car rental and flights can all be booked on line.

4. Time to improve your game? A vacation is the perfect time to take a few lessons and improve your swing. Spain has some great teaching professionals who will help you work wonders.

5. The real beauty of Spain is that it offers so much outside of golf as well. The culture, the history and the relaxed Mediterranean way of life is a real added bonus.

6. Your Spanish golf vacation can be as relaxing or as frazzled as you choose to make it. During the day you can explore the tranquil Spanish countryside, or if you prefer, you will find that the nightlife here is as wild as the west.
