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 over 370 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. (4th December, 2019)
Club de Golf Montanyà is found in the hills near Barcelona, is an 18-hole golf course designed in 1989 by David Thomas. 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 € – 57.
The fact that Las Colinas maintains such an impressive rating from almost 300 reviews is a credit to the course in itself. This is architect Cabell B. Robinson’s third course on our list, and has been voted as one of the top 100 golf courses in continental Europe. The course itself is long, undulating and requires a buggy but it nestles into its surrounding environment so well. One of the best golf courses in the Valencian Community! Green fees are a little below average here – € 45.
Upon its opening in 2005, Golf Santander was considered one the best golf courses in Spain. The Rees Jones design has since become a popular destination for golfers and has jumped into our list at number 4. The course is located just 20 minutes from the center of Madrid, making it easily accessible from anywhere in Europe. Although it is one of the longest courses in Europe, it successfully balances this challenge by including up to 8 tee-off platforms per hole. This has undoubtedly contributed to the course’s popularity, as it offers enjoyment to the advanced and beginners alike. Green fees are a little expensive here – € 120.
Club de Golf Alcanada is considered – by golfers – the best golf course on the beautiful Balearic Island of Mallorca. The course is situated in the Alcudia Bay, on a stretch of land which slopes gently down to the edge of the sea. It is covered with pine, olive and holm oak trees while almost every hole provides a great view of the unmistakable lighthouse and the Sierra de Levante mountains. The course itself was designed by the legendary Robert Trent Jones Jr. and a reasonably strong handicap is recommended. Green fees start at around – € 64.50.
Club de Golf La Reserva – Sotogrande, located north of Gibraltar, is an 18-hole golf course designed by American architect Cabell B. Robinson.

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.
