When you drive through the countryside of Marbella all you seem to be seeing, are golf courses. However, I have only started playing, so that is why I asked my golf fanatic friends for their top 5 list of golf courses. But be aware, even though you might have the highest density of golf courses in Europe, some might be very crowded and it is always advisable to reserve a Tee Time. Some Green Fees are extraordinarily high but check out the brokers on the Internet for reduced green fees.
Located around 40 km west of Marbella. This world-class golf course offers a stunning view over the sea and the bay of Gibraltar.
- Finca Cortesin
This Course is definite World class!
- Villa Padierna, is a Hotel resort, which offers three different 18-holes courses from easy to extremely challenging. Even Michele Obama went on holiday here.
- Marbella Club resort, the personal favorite course of my golf fanatic Father. It’s the Course of the Marbella Club Hotel, located in the mountains nearby. I know this area very well as my former Horse stable is located just next to it. And let me tell you the views are stunning.
- Aloha golf club has the advantage that it is located just 5 minutes from Marbella or Puerto Banus. It’s the most beautiful city golf course around. Here you defiantly need to reserve a Tee-Time, as its always crowded.
