The Costa del Sol is one of Europe’s most important golf destinations, with 100 golf clubs to choose from. Most golf clubs have a handicap of 28 for men and 36 for women, but this is not really checked and a CFP is not a requirement to play.
The climate offers warm temperatures all year round, which makes this region very suitable for golf. July is the hottest month with an average temperature of 28 ° C. January is the coldest month with 11 ° C. The month of July offers golfers an average of around 12 hours of sunshine.
The provinces of Malaga and Cadiz – with their long coastlines – have the highest density of golf courses. A 8.3 on the LeadingCourses website indicates that Andalusia is very desirable as a golf destination.
