Best Golf Courses in Spain | Top Spanish Golf Courses in 2021/22

Best Golf Courses Spain

Spain is one of the best Golf Holiday destinations in the world, particularly due to the diversity of courses on offer throughout the country. There's something for everyone, from beachside courses and Championship Golf to high-quality 9 and 18 holes set against stunning natural landscapes and designed by famous golf course architects. Here's my pick of the top five golf courses in Spain.

When you're looking for a Golf holiday Spain be sure to book with golf holidays direct and why not travel to the Costa Del Sol and play some of the best golf courses Spain has to offer, such as Torrequbrada, La Cala or even Cabopino. Spain also is only a short flight from all major UK airports so you can enjoy playing golf in a little over two hours flight time! Be sure to book your next golf holiday to Spain where we can assure you of a fantastic time!

When it comes to looking for a new golf course to play, you’ve got two options. You can either head over to an online golf booking site and book your tee time there, or you can go directly to the golf course. Either way, the process of choosing a new golf course can be difficult if you don’t know what you are doing. Let me walk you through this process and help you find the right Spanish golf courses for your next trip!
