Sometimes you have these golf courses that look so good (like the one above) that you want to book a tee-time right away. But then the real hassle starts: calling a foreign club often causes language problems and receiving a reply to an email takes a couple of days. Here at Leadingcourses.com we think booking a tee-time should be more convenient: in your own language and whenever and wherever you want. That’s why we started implementing online booking systems into our platform. Right now we have 800 bookable clubs across Europe, but this is just the beginning. Here are the six best golf courses in Spain with tee-times bookable on our platform.
Real Club de Golf Sotogrande is located in the Costa del Sol, between Gibraltar and Marbella. The golf club is often recognised as one of the best in Europe. The course was designed in 1964 by famous architect Robert Trent Jones Junior and has been thoroughly redesigned in 2011. The course is host to one of the most important amateur golf championships: the Copa Sotogrande. Tee-times are not cheap here: starting at € 204.
Club de Golf Bonmont Terres Noves, located an hour and a half from Barcelona, is an 18-hole golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones Junior. The course, with stunning sea- and mountain views from almost every hole, has more than 90 bunkers which makes the course a real challenge. Bonmont Terres Noves varies from fairly flat to very hilly. A buggy is recommended. Green fee prices are far below average, starting at € 49.
Club de Golf Montanyà, found in the hills near Barcelona, is an 18-hole golf course designed by David Thomas and inaugurated in 1989. It is worth mentioning that famous FC Barcelona player, local Catalan hero and avid golfer Johan Cruijff (1947- 2016) was a member at Club de Golf Montanyà. Because Cruijff always played with number 14 on the back of his shirt, the par-3 14th hole at Montanyà has been dedicated to Cruijff. Green fees starting at € 76.
It says enough that Golf Son Gual, located on the Balearic Island Mallorca, has been compared to Augusta National by former Masters’ champion Ian Woosnam. The stunning 18-hole, 7,241-yard course includes one of the finest collections of par threes to be found anywhere and an outstanding closing hole. The course is designed by three-time German Amateur Champion Thomas Himmel. Himmel has worked wonders and delivered an exquisite golfing experience that blends seamlessly into the local landscape. Green fee prices are a bit above average for Spain, starting at € 85.
Club de Golf La Reserva – Sotogrande, located north of Gibraltar, is an 18-hole golf course designed by American architect Cabell B. Robinson. The course, opened in August 2003, offers a spectacular round running between lakes and trees and is now considered to be one of the best in Spain. La Reserva de Sotogrande lies in a beautiful natural setting in the upper part of Sotogrande. Bordered by one of the most exclusive and best managed golf courses in Spain, its commanding position offers spectacular views of the Mediterranean and one of the best golf courses in Europe. Be prepared for a high green fee price: starting at € 235.
Finca Cortesín, located very near the Mediterranean Sea and in a privileged area of Andalusia, has become a reference in the world of the golf. At almost 7,000 meters from the back tees it is considered one of the longest courses in Europe. The natural environment and landscape of Finca Cortesin are one of it’s most attractive features. The course, designed by Cabell Robinson, has more than 100 bunkers and is considered one of the best golf courses (and the best Resort) in Spain. The privileged location of the layout will make the player enjoy wonderful views of the Mediterranean sea and mountains. Finca Cortesín is also not cheap: green fee prices starting at € 182.
