You’ll be able to play golf during your visit to the province of Málaga even if you're not a golfing pro. Most golf courses on the Costa del Golf have practice areas and instructors that specialise in golf coaching. You will also find specialist golf schools that will provide you with everything you need to develop and perfect your technique.
Marbella, Mijas, Estepona, Casares and Benalmádena are the perfect places for golfing beginners. The academies in these towns offer programmes for beginners that are often very innovative (available in several languages, for instance), and some of them make use of the very latest technology.
Putting and chipping green
If you're looking to try out new strategies, short games are the best way of perfecting this sport. The majority of courses have putting and chipping greens as well as short golf courses so you can either play the sport from scratch or work on your swing – no matter what your handicap is.
Driving ranges and short courses in Málaga
Almost all the golf courses on the Costa del Sol have driving ranges for those seeking to play golf for the first time. You will also come across courses with specific ranges where you will be able to try out golf for the first time as well as improve your short game.
If you need any equipment, you can get everything you need or indeed hire out your equipment in the clubhouse shops, or you can try specialist golfing shops. There is a company that specialises in golf club hire, Qualygolf, a ground-breaking initiative in Spain.
