Marbella’s quality Golf Courses & Properties
One of the main reasons Marbella has become renowned as an all year round resort is the prevalence in the area of some of the best golf courses in Europe.
Southern Spain—with Marbella leading the way—was one of the first regions in Europe to recognise the potential of golf as a means of attracting a discerning international clientele on an all year round basis, either on holiday or for the increasingly important residential tourism market.
The construction of luxury villas and apartments in privileged locations around top class playing facilities helped expand Marbella’s brand as a resort for an international elite and build on the reputation the town had already earned for the highest quality amenities at exclusive resorts such as the Marbella Club on what has become the Golden Mile.
Sought after Golf Valley villas and apartments
While not the oldest courses in Marbella—that title goes to the Real Club de Golf Guadalmina (established 1959) and Río Real (1965)—perhaps the three clubs with the greatest contribution in making the town a golfing Mecca were Real Club de Golf las Brisas, Aloha and Los Naranjos in Nueva Andalucía, all opened in the 1970s. Just ten minutes from the exclusive lifestyle of Puerto Banús and Marbella town, these courses rapidly became known as premier locations, with the area becoming known as Marbella’s Golf Valley. As such, the villas and apartments for sale in Nueva Andalucía remain highly sought after for their location as well as the privacy and qualities they offer.
The rise of country club living
The region’s golf offering has been further expanded with the development of Marbella’s country clubs, the most exclusive of which is La Zagaleta. Built around a grand clubhouse and boasting two top-level golf courses, homes here benefit from stunning sea vistas and the privacy so desired by the international actors, sportsmen and businesspeople who have invested in real estate in the area.
