Where to play golf in Málaga 


As we have mentioned, Málaga is one of the best places in Europe to play golf. The good quality of its golf courses makes the Costa del Sol a paradise for enthusiasts of this sport. 

It all began in 1926, the year in which the Real Club de Campo was founded; currently known as Málaga’s Parador de Golf.
