The Costa del Sol is aptly nicknamed the Costa del Sol, and every year attracts thousands of golfers, whether for a holiday or a permanent move.
The Andalusian town of Benahavís is known for its stunning surrounding areas, exquisite gastronomy and beautiful golf course. Within the village borders, there are a number prestigious golf courses, suitable for novices and professional golfers alike.
El Higueral Golf
El Higueral sits on the foothills of Benahavís, an area known for its mountains. The scenic course’s gentle slopes are suitable both novices and experienced golfers.
Los Flamingos Golf
Los Flamingos Golf is comprised of three golf courses, the original Los Flamingos, Alferini and Tramores. The Resort falls within the luxury development surrounding the famed Villa Padierna Hotel, known for hosting former First Lady Michelle Obama during her visit in 2010.
Los Flamingos is considered to be one of the finest golfing facilities on the Costa del Sol, with its three complex courses offering a challenge for even the most experienced of golfers.
Los Flamingos, the original of the three courses, is renowned for its breathtaking views of the Mediterranean Sea, down to Gibraltar and across to the northern African mountains. The Arroyo Taraje river runs through the course and ends at one of its numerous lakes. A challenging course, Los Flamingos hosted the 2010 Ladies Spanish Open and European Seniors Match in 2002, 2003 and 2004.
La Zagaleta Golf Club
