The Costa del Sol is known for its beautiful beaches and for a pleasant climate, with more than 300 days of sunshine a year. But beyond its most famous charms, this paradisiacal area of Malaga is a perfect place for another activity: playing golf.
This sport, which has fans all over the world, requires good golf courses, something that is not always easy to find. Fortunately, on the Costa del Sol we find excellent golf courses very close to famous cities such as Marbella or Benalmádena.
Playing golf on the Costa del Sol is easy thanks to its many courses. We recommend these five: Chaparral Golf Club (in Mijas Costa), Santa María Golf Club, Santa Clara Golf Club, Los Naranjos Golf Club (these three in Marbella) and Golf Torrequebrada (in Benalmádena Costa).
All these courses offer 18 holes so that you can unleash your passion for golf on the Costa del Sol. Furthermore, their handicaps are varied; In this way you can choose the field that suits you best according to your level in this sport or your desire to challenge.

Chaparral Golf Club, with a handicap of 28 for men and 30 for women, is characterized by its extensive vegetation, which includes forest, and a very fun course without losing demand.
Santa María Golf Club has the same handicap as Chaparral Golf Club and stands out for its Club House, an 18th century building with beautiful gardens and the possibility of playing tennis or bowling.
If you decide on Golf Torrequebrada you will find a 27 (men) / 35 (women) handicap course, incredible views and a diversity in design that ensures a challenge for players of all levels.
Santa Clara Golf is important because it is very close to the center of Marbella and, at the same time, respects the entire natural environment of the area. This is the most affordable course on this list, with a handicap of 30 for men and 38 for women.
And if you bet on Los Naranjos Golf Club you will find the most demanding course (next to Torrequebrada). It has been a training ground for many professional players and is considered an International Club, which means that the most exclusive events are held there.
But the experience of playing golf goes much further. The five golf clubs that we recommend have great facilities to do other activities or enjoy a good breakfast or lunch before and after playing a game.
This makes them a perfect place to go with friends and family to socialize, taste local food or do activities to activate body or mind. In addition, this means that you can go with your loved ones, even if they do not like golf: while you enjoy playing golf they can do other activities within their complex. All of you will have fun in the best possible environment.
In addition, golf tournaments are regularly organized on some of these courses. Do you dare to compete and show that you can win?
