Welcome to the Costa del Golf: Embracing a Lifestyle of Luxury and Leisure

Welcome to the Costa del Golf: Embracing a Lifestyle of Luxury and Leisure

It’s not a surprise that the Costa Del Sol is often nicknamed the “Costa Del Golf.”

Golf is popular in this part of the world, and with good reason. The climate lends itself to the sport, but there are also many celebrity connections. Did you know that several famous golfers have left their mark here? Not only have some of our most famous clubs seen star players, but their work is also etched into the stylish image of the area. Gary Player designed El Paraiso Golf Club. Dave Thomas, known for over 100 courses, worked with The Marbella Club, and Manuel Piñero designed La Quinta Golf and Country Club, to name but a few.

The area also hosts grand golfing events like the Ryder Cup and the women’s Solheim Cup. These events are extremely prestigious, and highlight the enduring love story between golf and the Costa Del Sol.

Golf: More Than Just a Sport in Marbella

Golf is a very popular pastime here, bringing with it hundreds of thousands of visitors every year. In Marbella especially, golf isn’t just a sport—it’s a way of life, etched into the soul of this thriving community, where golfing greats have left their lasting legacy.

But beyond the game itself, golf plays a vital role in boosting the local economy, particularly during shoulder seasons when tourism dips. The influx of golf enthusiasts, drawn to the region’s world-class courses, injects vitality into the community, supporting businesses and driving growth.
