Playing golf in Andalusia

Andalusia has a wonderful climate. With over 300 days of sunshine a year, it is a true Eldorado for golf enthusiasts. Even in winter, you can play golf in Andalusia. Near Finca Las Nuevas, in the province of Málaga, you can always find a nice golf course nearby.

Most golf courses are situated on the Costa del Sol, but there are also a number of inland golf courses.

Lauro Golf

This golf course is situated between the villages Alhaurin el Grande and Alhaurin de la Torre, within half an hour’s drive from Finca Las Nuevas. The course is beautifully situated at the foot of the Sierra de Mijas with a view of Málaga and the Mediterranean. If you want, you can play golf here all day, as the golf course has 27 holes! The final 9 holes are a bit uphill, so if you don’t have a buggy, you have to climb a little now and then.

At the golf course, you will find a restaurant with a lovely terrace in an old Andalusian Cortijo. You can either sit in the sun or in the shadow, under the old tree.

Alhaurin Golf

This inland golf course is also situated in Alhaurin el Grande, half an hour’s drive from Finca Las Nuevas. The course is also situated at the foot of the Sierra de Mijas, so you occasionally have to climb, but the view is beautiful. This course has 18 holes.

The restaurant offers a magnificent view of the hills.

Playing golf on the coast

If you want, you can try a different golf course every day. The golf courses on the coast are surrounded by urbanizations with holiday homes. We haven’t had much time yet to play golf and aren’t advanced golf players, so we can’t share personal experiences about the golf courses on the coast. Below, we will list a couple of them:
