New golf season, Hole 9 Chaparral Golf Club, MIjas, Costa del Sol

The new season arrives to Costa del Sol – the Golfer´s paradise!

The season is here, fill your trip with golf, activities and traditions!

Choose the course.

The Costa del Sol, also known as Costa del Golf offers more than 70 golf courses. The area has the highest concentration of golf courses in Spain and Europe.  Some of these courses are situated in the most beautiful locations and are just as famous for their spectacular panoramic views as they are for the quality of the greens. Iniciate the new golf season in Chaparral Golf Club, unique for its location in a protected area of pine tree forest with panoramic views of the Mediterranean Sea.

The variety of golf courses on the coast, in both design and location, makes the destination a true golfer´s paradise, being able to offer a course for each taste and type of player.

The coast of Malaga is known for its pleasant climate, with an average close to 20 degrees during the autumn and winter months and with almost 300 days with sunshine. The weather in this time of the year is not as hot as in summer, but on most days, still warm enough to head to the beach during the day if you want. The golf courses are usually in optimum condition thanks to the lower temperatures and increase in water.

Live the outdoor life.

There are more sides of Malaga than golf and beaches. After you finish your game, why not visit vineyards, white farmhouses and haciendas on the eastern Costa del Sol where they have been making artisan sweet wine since the days of the Romans?

A visit to the nature park “Montes de Malaga” will take you back in time, to long-established wineries and charming country hotels organising a wide range of activities, from gourmet experiences to walking tours amidst ancient trees.

Most of the quaint villages perched on the mountains have kept their Islamic heritage unspoilt. They are the main attraction on the “Mudejar Tour “and the “Route of Olive Oil”. Get seduced by the spell of Al-Andalus as you pick the traces of these villages’ Arab past.

Feel the traditions.
