Best Golf Courses in the Costa del Sol
The Costal del Sol is also known as the Costa del Golf, since it currently has more than 70 fields to practice this sport, and many of them are considered world-class.
For this reason, the Costa del Sol is the first European destination for practising golf, due to the spectacular infrastructures it has and a climate that allows this activity to be carried out almost all year round.
Every season thousands of golf fans, both professional and amateurs, and of various nationalities (Spanish, British, German …), come to the Costa del Sol to perfect their swing.
This makes many fans of this sport decide to buy a residence on the Costa del Sol. At Darya Homes, we have an exclusive project of 14 new construction homes, The Sapphire Residences, very close to the Estepona Golf course.
