Spain has always been the favourite holiday destination for us Brits. However, recently more and more of us have been swapping the Spanish beaches for Spanish golf courses.
La Cala golf hotel and spa in Malaga is Spain’s largest golf resort. It has three golf courses, properties and a luxury hotel and spa. The golf course is set in a stunning location, surrounded by Spanish mountains and the Mediterranean sea.
The resort has everything golf enthusiasts could wish for. The three 18 hole golf courses offer varying levels of difficulty and challenges and the resort also has an executive 6 hole course situated in beautiful hills.
If you feel like a break away from the golf course then you can always try your hand at squash or simply relax in the clubhouse.
Another luxury golf resort in Spain is the PGA Catalunya. It was voted the number 1 golf course in the country in 2012.

The courses are part of Jumeirah Golf Estates, a luxury golfing community containing four courses called Fire, Earth, Water and Wind. All have a different environmental theme. The Fire course is said to be the most challenging, with its notoriously deep bunkers. Some of the traps even contain stepladders to help!
