The golfing in Costa del Sol is extraordinary. The climate of the area is unrivaled, and is largely responsible for the heightened popularity of regional courses. The district is so loved by golfers that it has even been referred to as the Costa del Golf.

It comes as no surprise that golfing is the primary sport in the Costa del Sol. The area boasts over forty country clubs that cater to the sport. In fact, the region has the highest concentration of golf resorts in all of continental Europe. This is due in large part to the climate, in which sunshine dominates for nearly 300 days out of the year. The abundance of golf courses has also lead to a spike in tourism and tourism quality over the last fifty years.

The sheer quality of the golf courses scattered across the region has resulted in many international championships taking place. The Ryder Cup, the Spanish Open, the World Championship, and the World Masters have all been held on Costa del Sol greens. Even with so many successful and beautiful courses, more are in the process of being built. Eventually, the inner precincts of the region will catch up to the suburbs in terms of golf course access.

The golfing frenzy is so abundant that hotels have been built specifically to accommodate seasonal golfers who like to take holiday in the area. Patrons are encouraged to invite along friends and family to enjoy in the experience. Many people like taking tours of particular courses and mingling with the social elite. After golfing in Costa del Sol, many people decide they simply don’t want to leave. It is not everyday that one can golf atop pristine, trimmed, grass while breathing the crisp air from the Mediterranean Sea.
