Golf on the Costa del Sol

The Costa del Sol is often referred to as the Costa del Golf, its not surprising with a concentrations of top quality golf courses nearing the 40's and fabulous weather almost all year round.

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 the area, not suprisingly, is home to many luxury property developments, inlcuding some fine frontline properties on the courses.

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.
