Discover the best golf in Spain

Renowned for its sunny climate and stunning landscapes, a Malaga golf holiday has plenty to offer. Not only does it have some fantastic parkland tracks designed by top architects, such as Severiano Ballesteros, but it is also near other top golfing regions. Malaga is home to some of the best golf courses in the Costa del Sol, making it an ideal base for a Spain golf tour.

Some of the best golf courses in Malaga include:

  • The Old Course at Parador de Malaga Golf - A two-time European Tour host, this 27-hole layout is the oldest course in the region, opened by the Spanish Royal Family in 1925. The golf course boasts an intriguing layout, mixing seawater lagoons with tree-lined fairways as the golfer is guided through avenues of eucalyptus.
  • Lauro Golf Course - Set 1,000 feet above sea level, Lauro is a 27 hole course surrounded by nature. There are no less than 14 lakes spread throughout, and you might even spot the occasional eagle! The layout was designed to be technically challenging, though with the right club selection there is opportunity for a good score.
  • Guadalhorce Club de Golf - Redesigned by 21 time European Tour winner Miguel Angel Jimenez, you’re guaranteed a phenomenal round at Guadalhorce. The golf course is set in the plains of the Guadalhorce Valley and regularly hosts regional championships, thanks to its excellent conditioning and fantastic practice facilities.
  • Torrequebrada Golf - The challenging layout at Torrequebrada Golf has more than earned its intimidating nickname – ‘The Beast’. With eight dogleg holes and water coming into play one half of the holes, accuracy and shot shaping is required in abundance. Though not located in Malaga, it is just a short drive away and certainly worth the trip.
