Autumn–The Perfect Season for Golf on the Costa del Sol

The start of Autumn has been stunning here on the Costa del Sol with temperatures in their high 20s and up to the mid-30s well into October. It’s still warm enough to enjoy the beaches and the pool, but due to the time of year, you’ll get it almost to yourself – heaven!

As the crowds depart and the temperatures cool, there’s another big draw to the Costa del Sol – golf. This area is known as the Costa del Golf, thanks to the high density of quality golf courses in a small area. There are a wide range of courses to choose from, depending on your handicap, preferences and budget, from Valderrama in Sotogrande to Finca Cortesin in Casares,  Los Naranjos in Marbella to La Cala Golf in Mijas. To help you choose, view the list of the Top 100 golf courses in Southern Spain or check out the ten best golf courses on the Costa del Sol according to TripAdvisor users.

As golf is so popular, and the courses are in such beautiful settings, we have a collection of golf accommodation which are within easy reach of some of the best golf courses on the Costa del Sol. We’re seeing a growing trend in golfers choosing holiday rentals, rather than hotels, due to their flexibility, space and comfort. They are ideal for golf groups, or families including non-golfers, as they offer a comfortable base for a holiday, even if you’re not playing and can be excellent value as well.

Here are a selection of our favourite golf courses and holiday rental properties near by. If you’d like any more recommendations, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Los Naranjos Golf Club

Los Naranjos is conveniently located in Nueva Andalucia, close to Puerto Banus, Marbella and San Pedro and this area is known as the golf valley, due to the high density of courses in a very small area. This is a great area to stay for golfers wanting to try a range of courses with little travel time, and non-golfers wanting to enjoy great restaurants, beaches, shopping and nightlife.

The golf course was designed by Robert Trent Jones Senior and opened in 1977, with gently undulating, tree-lined fairways and large bunkers. It is rated very highly on TripAdvisor for the condition of the greens and fairways, the layout and really good service. The club house is also very popular for golfers and non-golfers alike.

We have a holiday rental townhouse in Los Naranjos with three bedrooms, a private garden and pool. This spacious property sleeps 6 and would be ideal for three couples, or a family, looking for a number of golf courses within walking distance and a lovely base for a relaxing holiday.

Torrequebrada Golf Course

This golf course in Benalmadena comes top of the 10 best golf courses in the area according to TripAdvisor reviews. The course was designed by José “Pepe” Gancedo, known as “the Picasso of golf” and is popular due to the quality of the course, challenging layout and beautiful scenery, it is also close to Malaga airport, so very convenient for a golf holiday. Reviewers call it “The greatest course ever played”, “top course” and the “best course on the Costa”.

We have a two bedroom apartment for rent in Torrequebrada in a lovely residential complex, right by the golf course. It is bright and comfortable with a fantastic east-facing terrace with lovely views and makes a comfortable and practical base for a golf holiday. Benalmadena has a lot to offer vistors as well, including a lovely park, cable car with bird of prey show, a pretty marina and lots of bars, restaurants and nightlife options.

Finca Cortesin

This 18-hole championship golf course is one of Europe’s longest layouts and highly praised by the golf community. Designed by Cabell Robinson and opened in 2007, he set out to create a course where “no hole has less than championship quality” and according to Top 100 Golf courses, this vision is rapidly turning into a reality. The service and 5* facilities, including a Jack Nicklaus academy come very highly recommended.

We have a great three bed holiday rental apartment close to Finca Cortesin, on the pretty complex of Casares del Sol. It is a very short drive up the hill to Finca Cortesin, and a short drive to the beach of Casares Costa. It is also conveniently located to play the highly regarded courses of Sotogrande and to visit the pretty white village of Casares. The community has six communal pools and tropical gardens, and the apartment is very comfortable for a golf break.

The 2009 Volvo World MatchPlay Golf Championship is coming to Estepona on the Costa del Sol between October 29th and November 1st this year. This is fantastic news for the local Costa del Sol community and especially for our holiday rental property owners with conveniently-located properties, as demand for accommodation during the tournament is expected to be high…

Considered one of the most prestigious competitions on the professional golfing calendar, the tournament will take place at Finca Cortesin Golf Course near Estepona.

This year’s revamped format will pit 16 of the top golfers from every continent – including such illustrious names as Tiger Woods, Ernie Els, Michael Campbell and Phil Mickelson – against each other to win prize money of over three million Euros.

The fact that such a prestigious golfing event has moved to the Costa del Sol from its traditional home of Wentworth in England speaks volumes for the Coast as a golfing destination. But then, the Coast is a true golfers’ paradise, catering for players of all standards, with around 50 quality courses ranging from simple 9-hole courses to Europe’s most challenging; the legendary Valderrama and new Finca Courtesin.

With great weather almost guaranteed throughout the golf season, not to mention a whole host of other amenities and entertainment on offer – such as the fabulous beaches, great sports and beach clubs, adventurous things to do, and interesting places to visit, world-class shopping, an abundance of restaurants and the exciting night life.

Many believe that the fact the World MatchPlay Championships has found its new home on the Coast can only further enhance the Coast’s reputation as the ideal place to choose for a relaxing golfing break.

This is great news for the local community and especially for our holiday rental property owners with conveniently-located properties, as demand for accommodation during the tournament is expected to be high.

To capitalise on this, we’ve embarked on a major e-marketing campaign targeting our direct travel clients, European travel industry partners and UK golf clubs to launch our new ‘Fairway Collection’ of over 30 quality-assured self-catering golf holiday rental apartments and villas located on or within a 5 minute walk of a Costa golf course, many of which are within short walking distance of the Championships.

Discounts to encourage early rental bookings during the tournament mean some of our rental accommodation is now available from just €13.50 per person, per night during the tournament, for group bookings.

What’s more, we’ve teamed up with local golf booking specialists, Golf Service, to offer holiday rental clients substantial green fee discounts at every single course on the Coast, as well as pre-booked tee times via our website.

All positive news in these harsh times!

All for now, hasta luego!
