The Best Golf Courses at the Costa Blanca

Located on the east coast of Spain, the Costa Blanca is an ideal location to enjoy a golf holiday.

When to play golf in the Costa Blanca?

Enjoying over 300 days of sunshine per year, the Costa Blanca boasts the perfect weather conditions for golf throughout the year. For those that are wishing to enjoy the best of the weather, avoiding the extremely hot summer months, the ideal months to visit are March, April and the beginning of May before the courses begin the necessary course maintenance. The autumn months of September, October and November also offer superb weather conditions for golf, although the evenings can be a little chillier than the spring months.

Known as the high season, the months above are extremely busy and require you to make your bookings as far in advance as possible.

Choosing to play in the summer also means you could combine your trip and bring the family to enjoy the incredible white sand beaches that stretch the length of the Costa Blanca Coast.

What are the best golf courses at the Costa Blanca?

The choice of courses is varied, with a variety of course designs, difficulty and styles to choose from.

In the north Oliva Nova, designed by legendary Spanish golfer Severiano Ballesteros offers a superb golf resort with a luxury hotel and superb championship golf course.
