Golfers have traditionally gravitated to the south of Spain. Marbella is one of the main golfing destinations in Andalusia, which has more than a hundred golf courses. It’s time to look into some of the top clubs in Marbella for our Golf Enthusiasts.

La Zagaleta Golf & Country Club | Location

  • Situated just ten minutes from Marbella, La Zagaleta is an exclusive residential countryside estate with nearly 900 hectares of stunning natural hills and valleys with stunning sea views. The two lush golf courses, the private Zagaleta Old Course and the Zagaleta New Course, are surrounded by beautiful scenery and offer views of the Mediterranean’s glistening turquoise waters and majestic mountains.

 Marbella Golf Country Club | Location

  • The Marbella Club Hotel proudly introduces its 18-hole golf course, meticulously designed by Dave Thomas. Just a scenic 20-minute drive from the hotel, nestled in the hills of Benahavis, this magnificent course offers breathtaking views of Gibraltar, the African coastline, the Mediterranean, and the surrounding mountains. With limited play and generous intervals between tee times, guests can enjoy a tranquil round without overcrowding concerns. Required handicaps are Ladies 36 and Gentlemen 28. Tee times are available from 09:00 to 13:00, with a convenient shuttle service included for guests’ convenience.

Finca Cortesín Golf Club | Location

  • Finca Cortesin, located in a prestigious region of Andalusia close to the Mediterranean Sea, is now well-known in the golf industry. Approximately 7,000 meters measured from the back tees makes this one of Europe’s longest courses. One of Cortesin’s most alluring aspects is its natural setting. Cabell Robinson created the 18 holes at Finca Cortesin Golf Club, which features over 100 bunkers. It’s regarded as one of Spain’s top golf courses. Finca Cortesin is honored to have been selected as the official 2023 Solheim Cup venue. This is the first time Spain has hosted the competition between the United States and Europe.

Los Naranjos Golf Club | Location

  • Located amidst fragrant orange groves and lush surroundings, Los Naranjos Golf Club radiates classic style and exquisite architecture. This prestigious course, which was created by Robert Trent Jones Sr., offers golfers of all ability levels difficulties in addition to a tranquil haven from everyday life. Whether you prefer panoramic vistas from a spacious villa or exclusive amenities in a contemporary apartment, Los Naranjos Golf Club promises a lifestyle of unparalleled luxury and tranquility.

La Quinta Golf & Country Club | Location

  • The La Quinta Golf & Country Club lies in the breathtaking Golf Valley of Marbella, situated between the sea and the mountains. A 27-hole course, a restaurant, a shop, and an exclusive club are all included. It is appropriate for players of all skill levels and was designed by three-time World Champion and Ryder Cup winner Manuel Piñero. This club has 27 holes divided into 3 courses of nine holes each.
Real Club de Golf Las Brisas | Location
  • For its design, they selected the American Robert Trent Jones, who was already regarded as one of the top golf course designers in the world. He had just completed the Sotogrande course and, following Las Brisas, would design Los Naranjos and Valderrama. The course has several water obstacles, including 10 artificial lakes fed by two streams. The greens, which are typically raised, are well protected by bunkers. Robert Trent Jones’ work, which we continue to appreciate today, was genuinely amazing and unique, resulting in a difficult and appealing course.


In Marbella and its surrounding areas, the synergy between luxury real estate and prestigious golf courses creates a lifestyle of unparalleled sophistication, elegance, and leisure. Whether you’re a passionate golfer seeking the perfect home on the fairways or an investor looking to embrace the epitome of Mediterranean luxury, Marbella offers a wealth of opportunities to fulfill your dreams.
