The Golf Courses

If you are here for just a few days, then you want to be sure that the golf courses you choose give you a great experience. There are some superb golf courses near Fuengirola, here are our recommendations that we think will make a short golf break in Fuengirola truly memorable.

The golf courses we recommend here are not “cheap” golf courses. They are premium golf courses that offer an outstanding experience. By utilising promotions and special offers you can make some tremendous savings.

Mijas Golf

Mijas Golf is recognised by many as being the most successful golf facility in Europe. Opened in 1976 the team at Mijas Golf are experts in making golfers happy.

They have two truly great golf courses to offer just a few kilometres for Fuengirola.

Los Lagos is spectacular. A golf course that is a delight to play. If you elect to play it from the back tees then you are confronting a beast of 7200 yards. I suggest you select the tees that allow you to reach the par four holes with your second shot and then you enjoy one of the most sublime golf courses in Spain. Book now!

Broad fairways and rolling greens are so inviting, albeit somewhat offset by the lakes that give the course its name being ominously present on nine of the holes.

Its sister course, Los Olivos, is very different and yet equally as good . Playing Los Olivos from the back tees and building a decent score is deeply satisfying. The greens are small, often elevated and require good iron play to hit. A good short game will be an asset. From the back tees the challenge is extreme. From the other tees Los Olivos like Los Lagos is designed to make you happy offering easy bogey and hard par. Book now!


A close neighbour of Mijas Golf and only a few minutes from Fuengoirola, Santana Golf is very popular with visiting golfers from all across Europe.

Like Mijas Golf, Santana benefits from the outstanding design skills of Cabell Robinson who at Santana Golf has created a golf course that makes its players feel good!

The team at Santana take pride in always presenting the course in its optimum condition. It is a beautiful golf course set within an old Avocado farm. The clubhouse is delightfully informal and boasts outstanding hospitality with a highly regarded kitchen. Book now!


Torrequebrada has a history of European Tour golf dating more than 50 years. All of the great names in European Golf from the late 1970’s through the 80’s and 90’s have played this sub tropical paradise.

Most of the fairways are generously wide which makes it comfortable to give the driver a good thump. In general it is a golf course that demands you plot your way around. The more discipline you can muster the better your score will be.

La Cala

La Cala offers 54 holes of golf. The Asia, America and Europa courses are set in the hills between La Cala and Fuengirola and offer a unique golf experience. The America course is the kindest of the three courses for those of us who hit the ball all over the place, the other two courses require more finesse in order to build a good score.

The scenery high on the hillside makes all of the courses feel very special. The La Cala Resort is a firm favourite with visiting golfers and has some terrific offers available to get your attention!

Where to Stay

If you are popping over to Fuengirola to enjoy a weekend golf break then it is ideal if your hotel is located close to a couple of good places to eat to make your apres golf arrangements fast, easy and enjoyable.

Here are three options that offer a very high standard of accommodation at staggeringly good value rates. Using any of these hotels will make your golf holiday in Fuengirola extremely cost effective.

Apart Hotel Be Cordial Mijas Golf – 3 Star

This might just be the perfect scenario. A modern apart hotel with spa facilities set in the centre of the Mijas Golf urbanisation. Either a short taxi ride or a 10 minute walk down the hill to the Mijas Golf clubhouse (20 minute walk back up the hill) and you are ready to play golf.

The apartments are modern, clean, spacious and well equipped to make your stay comfortable. Directly opposite the Hotel is the much loved Zia Zola Italian restaurant run by Dolores and her family where you will be very well fed, watered and made a fuss of!

Aparthotel Myramar – 3 Star

Located close to the Myramer shopping complex the Myramar Apart Hotel again offers top quality accommodation at a rate which will not frighten your credit card!

The Myramar is located a 6 minute walk from the seafront of Fuengirola close to the Fuengirola Castle. A myriad of bars and restaurants await you.

Hire a Car or Use a Transfer Service

If you are visiting for a week of golf then a hire car might be more convenient than using transfer companies. The downside of using a hire car, especially on a short visit, is the time it takes to collect the car upon arrival and again to drop it off. At each end of the trip the process of dealing with the car can take an agonising 45 minutes.

For a quick visit using a transfer company makes sense. You will be collected at the airport and driven directly to your hotel. They will deliver you to your chosen golf course each morning and then whisk you back again. Seamless, easy, hassle free. The cost will be similar or even less than hiring a car.

Rent or Bring Clubs

Travelling with golf clubs can be expensive. It is common to encounter airport charges of 40 to 60 euros when adding golf clubs to your luggage. Many players now elect to hire clubs for the duration of their holiday.

The clubs are delivered either to your hotel or will be waiting for you at the golf course. You can choose a set that matches your preferences. The sets are new and give you the chance to try out the latest clubs. After the final round the clubs are collected and you don’t have any inconvenience of packing them, checking them in etc. It is very easy. Hire club prices can be as low as 7 euros a day.


Grabbing the opportunity to book a quick golf holiday in Fuengirola is not expensive and offers outstanding value for money. Hiring clubs and using transfer services can also make it easy and totally free of hassle. Drop us a line and allow us to make the arrangements for you today.
