Bil Bil Golf
Located just 18 kilometres from Malaga city, Benalmádena is known for its diverse range of golf courses. Bil Bil House Golf is just one of these.

Have you ever had the opportunity to play the 18-hole course located in the province of Malaga? If not, you really should. The course will put your skills to the test as it tries to push your handicap up on its extensive holes. The main challenge the course poses is controlling the power of each swing to make sure you clear the river snaking between the holes to reach the small greens.
The course has a restaurant where you can savour some traditional local dishes. As you would expect from any good course, Bil Bil Golf House also offers club hire. And we’re going to share a tip with you: make sure you warm up well before holes 4 and 5 because you’ll need a strong swing to clear the lake. The water obstacles add a moment of excitement to each round.
