Within a relatively short transfer from your hotel, there are around 30 courses that can be included when using Marbella as your base for a Corporate Golf Trip. Flight times are very good with Malaga offering a number of airport options from the UK and a transfer of around 45mins to either Marbella or Puerto Banus. In the evenings, most head for ‘The Strip’ in Puerto Banus, where there are a number of good restaurants, followed by late night drinks at Sinatra’s or the Piano Bar. Several hotels are walkable with others being only a short taxi ride back.
The stretch of coast from Mijas to just beyond Marbella is home to a huge number of quality courses and, wherever you stay, you are guaranteed to have a good selection on your doorstep. We have featured three popular ones below although we can offer any combination of courses from the creme de la creme of Valderrama to the better value but still excellent Mijas. Although there are several local courses, a short transfer of 30 minutes will considerably open up your choice to most of the courses within the area.
Ideally located near Fuengirola and just 20mins from Marbella, La Cala resort offers three very different courses, the America, Europa and Asia. America rewards long driving, the Asia has narrow fairways and is regarded as the most challenging, whilst the Europa offers an easier option with generous fairways, flatter terrain and larger greens to suit groups of all abilities.
Designed by three time world champion and Ryder Cup winner, Manuel Piñero, La Quinta has 27 holes, split over 3 nine hole courses, which are completely integrated into a splendid natural landscape of exceptional beauty. One of the most attractive courses in the area, it is accessible to all levels of play and is therefore an excellent choice for Corporate groups.
Santa Clara presents a technically challenging but straightforward and pleasant round, wide fairways with little rough and open greens. A par 71, 5878m course, the highlight of the round is the “Santa Clara Corner” formed by the 12th, 13th and 14th holes, a perfect combination of pars 4,3 and 5, which requires the golfers to make both long and accurate shots.
