Wondering where to play golf in winter on the Costa del Sol? Take note!

It’s perfectly possible to enjoy a round of golf in winter on the Costa del Sol. In fact, there are many places where you can find top class golf courses, such as:

La Axarquía

In the area of La Axarquía, we present Baviera Golf and Añoreta Golf. They both enjoy an ideal microclimate for this sport throughout the year and were designed by one of Spain’s premier golfers: José María Cañizares.

Bavaria Golf, in Vélez Málaga, near the beaches of Caleta de Vélez and Nerja, has 18 holes. The wide greens, with plenty of movement and various obstacles, mean it adapts to different levels.

Añoreta Golf, on the other hand, in Rincón de la Victoria offers a challenging course, also with 18 holes along 6 km, with bermuda-grass greens and views of the Mediterranean.

Another option is the Chaparral Golf Club, which offers a complete experience with its 18-hole course, surrounded by Mediterranean woodland.
