Estepona Golf – driving for success

8.30am 13th December 2006 - Travel

Golf continues to be one of the main attractions of the Costa del Sol, attracting nearly 1.6 million people each year to play the sun-soaked greens and fairways of no less than 60 courses along the some 300 kilometres that stretch across the Mediterranean coastline.

With 320 days of sunshine a year, championship courses, thriving tourist towns such as Marbella and Estepona, the Costa del Golf is without doubt Europe’s leading golfing destination.

In recent years, the western Costa del Sol has been leading the way for quality tourism, with the arrival of a plethora of 5-star hotels, Michelin starred restaurants, sumptuous health spas and excellent residential developments. Midway between Marbella and Sotogrande, Estepona boasts one of the best beaches on the Costa del Sol; La Rada is the only beach on the coast to have been awarded the Blue Flag in recognition of its cleanliness, safety and facilities.

In the heart of the growth area, sits Estepona Golf, one of the first courses to be established on the western Costa del Sol back in 1989.

As the coast has become Europe’s number one destination for quality tourism, Estepona Golf has moved with the times. To meet the challenges of the fast moving leisure industry, and increasingly competitive golf market, the privately owned, “pay as you play” club is currently undergoing a programme of renovations and improvements. The surrounding infrastructure will shortly see a total investment in excess of €10 million transforming the club’s environment.

Unlimited golf amidst unrivalled beauty
With a brand new driving range, impeccable facilities and a fresh new look within their comfortable clubhouse, it is hardly surprising that Estepona Golf has welcomed a record number of new visitors. Estepona Golf has made every move possible to ensure an easier and more enjoyable round of golf. Renovations will offer two new access roads, a second entrance, improved buggy paths and re-landscaped tees with ryegrass over-seeding to ensure the best condition possible.

With many courses along the Costa del Sol charging between €90-100 per round, Estepona Golf represents exceptional value offering a number of outstanding deals. Many weekly, monthly and yearly packages are on offer, including a week-long pass costing just €235.

Other packages include a pay and play policy allowing people to play as and when they wish. Temporary membership allows unlimited games of golf at outstanding prices, while early morning or afternoon golfers are offered the chance to play nine holes with a buggy after 4pm for just €25 per person. Representing undeniably good value, the course has become a firm favourite with Scandinavian, German and British golfers alike.
