East Marbella is the Place for Golf!

With the unofficial pseudonym of ‘Costa del Golf’, it will come as no surprise that the Costa del Sol is a golfers paradise. Andalucía holds over 100 golf courses, with 66 of those stretching from Sotogrande to Málaga.

As well as having some of the best beaches in Marbella, the area east of the town is also renowned for its fabulous golf courses. There is a great deal of variety and truly something for all levels of players, from beginners to serious golf addicts!

Starting from Marbella, we find Rio Real Golf Club, an attractive course which is mostly flat and intersected at various places by a river that runs down to one of the many beautiful beaches on this stretch of coast.

Santa Clara is our next port of call. Opened in July 2001 this ‘challenging but straightforward’ course has wide fairways with little rough and is one of the few on the Costa del Sol with a driving range.

The Marbella Golf and Country Club comes close on the heels of the Santa Clara course and is one of the grand-daddies of golf courses in this area, being designed by the world-famous American designer Robert Trent Jones. It was recently awarded its fourth Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence, a sign of the great customer service appreciated by members and visitors alike.

The next course we reach is Santa Maria Golf Club, which in October 2016 celebrated its Silver Anniversary with an event attended by the then Mayor of Marbella, José Bernal. It is ideally situated amongst gentle valleys of pine trees and cork oaks, affording welcome shade on those warm afternoons.

We finish this short tour at Cabopino Golf, on the border with Marbella and Mijas, opposite the eponymous picturesque port. The views from the fairways here are also delightful, with vistas to the Mediterranean Sea and surrounding pine forests.

We have many properties ideally located for golfers, and indeed non-golfers! Contact us to find out more.
