Golf in Benahavis
With 320 sunny days days per year, golf is played all year round under blue skies in Benahavis. It is therefore not unusual to play in polo shirts in the middle of “winter”. The golf courses in Benahavis – which are all spectacular – were all designed by renown golf architects, such as Robert Trent Jones or great champions like Severiano Ballesteros or Jack Nicklaus. Courses are all rather hilly, and one obliges you to go round with a buggy. If you are not in good shape, we would advise you to take a buggy anyway when going for a round of golf.
Several clubs have more than 18 holes, such as Los Flamingos (54), La Zagaleta (36), Atalaya(36), and La Quinta (27).
The low season on the Costa del Sol is not winter, but July and August, since that is when it gets really warm, so the green fees go down considerably during this period.
Do remember to take plenty of golf balls as well, as some golf courses are not at all forgiving.
The Benahavis Golf Club does not have a proper course, but was created in order to give the Benahavis inhabitants the pleasure to play on the existing courses.
