Malaga Golf

With over 60 golf courses in Malaga, the Costa del Sol is also called Costa del Golf (The Golf Coast). The combination of quality courses with a pleasant climate all-year round has led to a boom in demand, particularly from Northern European golfers, who often escape to this area when rain or snow keeps them off their favourite home turfs.

Consequently, the Costa del Sol now rates as one of the best places in the world for golf tourism and in 2004 was voted the world’s fourth-best golf destination by the International Association of Golf Tour Operators. Below is a directory of the main golf courses on the coast along with contact information.
