Golf on the New Golden Mile

Costa del Golf.

The New Golden Mile is a coastal area stretching between Estepona and Guadalmina, near San Pedro Alcántara. Famous for its beaches, panoramic views along the shoreline to Gibraltar and wide range of fish restaurants, chiringuito cabana bars on the sand and stylish beach clubs, it is also increasingly noted and popular for its growing collection of luxury homes and exclusive residential areas./

But those choosing this up-and-coming new luxury area to buy a property on the Costa del Sol are also finding it offers an excellent array of golf clubs, in addition to shopping, dining, schools, clinics, leisure facilities and fantastic natural views. Here is a selection of golf courses on the New Golden Mile:

El Paraiso Golf Club

This beautifully landscaped course that occupies a scenic valley in El Paraiso provides the focal point for the properties surrounding it. Originally designed in 1973 by the legendary South African player Gary Player, El Paraiso is a popular club with active membership.

Atalaya Golf & Country Club

Set a little further to the east, overlooking Guadalmina, Atalaya is home to an 18-hole Old and 18-hole New course – two beautiful parkland areas that define the entire area amid great sea and mountain views. The clubhouse too is charming.

Los Flamingos Golf

The fairways of this 18-hole course create the sense of a gorgeous Tuscan landscape close to the Marbella shoreline. Designed by Antonio García Garrido, the course forms the central scenery for the highly exclusive Villa Padierna Palace Hotel and Spa.

La Resina Golf & Country Club

This 9-hole course lies within Selwo Hills, a very up-and-coming part of the New Golden Mile that is surrounded by nature, with spectacular sea and mountain views that also form the backdrop for a course and clubhouse that are at the heart of the local community.

With these courses to choose from on their doorstep and many more in the surrounding area, golf lovers and residents of luxury developments such as Ocean Hills and the newly released Ágora find themselves in a particularly privileged part of the Costa del Sol.
