Property on the Costa del Sol - Golf

Demand is increasing so that many new courses are being developed with the more popular courses rounds need to be booked months in advance.
A little inland from Puerto Banus and Nueva Andalucia is the area known as "Golf Valley", with world class courses designed by the likes of Robert Trent Jones and Seve Ballesteros which not surpassingly is home to many luxury property and villa developments, including golf course property. The course at La Zagaleta Country Club, designed by Seve Ballesteros, is one of the most exclusive courses on the coast and is strictly members and guests only.

Golf is far more popular with visiting tourists than the Spanish. A recent study estimated that a staggering 80% of golfing tourists had visited the Costa to play. Many golf courses have club tournaments running throughout the year, so phone to check first and booking in advance is advised. Golf has played a great part in turning the Costa del Sol from a summer holiday destination to a year round resort, with many northern Europeans escaping bleak winters to come to the Costa's mild winter climate to play golf and stay in their golf villas, apartments and holiday homes.
