Packed with variety, a golf holiday in Marbella has it all
The 27-holes of fabulous golf at The Westin La Quinta Golf Resort & Spa are tough to beat. Designed by former Ryder Cup player Manuel Piñero, each loop of 9 holes blends into the natural landscape, providing panoramic views of Marbella’s golf valley. With this fantastic layout, just a stone’s throw from your hotel room at this 5* resort, everything you could ever need from a golf break is never more than a 7-iron away!
A short drive towards the coast from The Westin La Quinta and overlooking miles of golden sands, Hotel Guadalmina Spa & Golf Resort puts you right in the heart of the action. Its two courses, The North Course and The South Course, offer some of the best array of golf in the Costa del Sol. The latter is the second oldest course on the coast and a real test of accuracy as you wind through its tree-lined fairways. Whilst slightly easier on paper, The North Course features more water hazards as the Guadalmina River meanders its way through this exciting layout.
Designed by the late-great Seve Ballesteros, the Par-71 parkland layout at Los Arqueros Golf & Country Club is set in the marvellous surroundings of the Rhonda Hills. With fantastic views over the Mediterranean coastline, this peaceful setting is an idyllic backdrop for your golf in Marbella.
Those looking for a real treat simply must check out Finca Cortesin. Widely considered one of the best courses in Spain, this immaculately manicured golf course is the longest on the coast when played from the back tees. With no hole like another, this fabulous Cabell Robinson design is rightly sought out by golfers from across the continent, and with a stunning 5* hotel located onsite, there’s even more time to squeeze in an extra round!
