Golfing in Costa del Sol

With a Mediterranean climate that can’t be beat, and over 40 courses dotting its coastline, Spain’s Costa del Sol is a golf destination worth adding to your athletic itinerary.

Some of its most impressive courses can be found in the resort town of Sotogrande. And of those golf-worthy tracks, private members’ club Valderrama is undoubtedly the region’s (if not Spain’s) most famous. Originally opened and designed by Robert Trent Jones in 1974 as Las Aves, it wasn’t until 1985 that it became today’s Valderrama, thanks to a facelift. Now it’s become a celebrity golf course in its own right, appearing on TV over the years during various tournaments, such as AMEX World Championships, the Volvo Masters and, most notably, the 1997 Ryder Cup.
