If this is your sport, then can you think of a better place to play?

It offers a host of possibilities, including its outstanding array of options for golf enthusiasts. Here you will find more than a dozen top-class golf courses with programmes to suit all levels of play. If you add to this an excellent range of hotels, numerous leisure attractions, extensive water sports, fine gastronomy and the typical charm of Andalusian towns and villages, then you will have no trouble deciding on your golfing destination: Marbella.
Holes for all, right by the sea
Beginner or expert, in Marbella you will have a great time playing golf. There are all kinds of 9- and 18-hole courses. There is another possibility you are sure to like: playing on a green with views over the Mediterranean Sea. Courses such as Golf Rio Real, Santa Clara Golf, Cabopino Golf, Santa María Golf; Country Club, Monte Paraíso Golf, Quinta Golf; Country Club, Marbella Golf; Country and Guadalmina Golf Club are all perfect options.
Quality is the word that best defines Marbella’s golf courses. An example of this is the Marbella Club Hotel, Golf Resort & Spa, which was named best European resort at the 2008 World Travel Awards. The green is actually inside the hotel, a real treat for guests. Another example is Las Brisas Royal Golf Club, whose course is especially attractive for expert players, requiring the most precise strokes.
Marbella’s international prestige in the golfing community is such that there are clubs with members from up to 20 different countries, as is the case of Aloha Golf. Like Los Naranjos Golf Club, this course is outstanding for the diversity of its holes, making each round completely different from the last. They are both close to the famous Puerto Banús, a regular destination for the jet set, a stunning location with a host of shops, restaurants and nightclubs, where you can also enjoy a range of water sports. La Dama de Noche Golf Club, unique in offering your favourite sport at night, and Magna Marbella Golf, are also close to Puerto Banús and complete a range of golf courses that lead many to think of Marbella as the golfing capital.
