Alicante’s golfing scene is well-known throughout Europe and presents huge appeal for travelling golfers. The good weather, hotels and golf courses are just some of the reason’s golfers choose Alicante throughout the year.
One of our recommendations is the five-star La Finca Resort, located just 40 minutes from Alicante Airport. With access to three 18-hole championship courses, La Finca Golf on the doorstep, plus Las Ramblas and Villamartin, this resort provides a great selection of golf to compliment the array of on-site drinking and dining options.
Melia Villaitana, just outside Benidorm, is a real customer favourite. Just a short distance from the lively nightlife of Benidorm, a high-quality hotel and with two courses on site, this is a perfect resort for groups.
Arguably the best value for money in Alicante can be found at Hotel Bonalba Alicante or Las Colinas Residences. Hotel Bonalba is home to Bonalba Golf with its exciting water hazards and provides access to Alenda Golf. Alternatively, Las Colinas is regarded as the best course in the area and one of the best in Spain; staying on-site in the Residences offers great value!
