Golf in Manilva

Andalucia is the home of over 60 Golf courses and with 30 of those located on the Costa del Sol it has earned the affectionate name of Costa del Golf. The region boasts an excellent climate and long hours of sunshine that attract ever increasing numbers of enthusiasts and professionals to the Golfing capital of Europe.

The nature of the region allows the fresh Atlantic and the mild Mediterranean winds to moderate temperatures in the summer whilst the mountains provide shelter from the cooler northern winds in the winter. As well as offering ideal playing conditions these are a spectacular backdrop to the courses whose views extend across the Mediterranean to North Africa. All these factors contribute to the rapid development of Golf courses in the area and the PGAs´ decision to host the Ryder Cup, Volvo Masters and major European Championship events.

Courses are maintained to an immaculate standard and display an array of challenges to every golfer from novice to professional all of whom are welcome to play on most courses including the world famous Valderrama Golf Club.
