On January 1st Golf Experience moved its Benavista office a short distance to allow for expansion.

For clients who are familiar with the old office the new one is upstairs in the adjoining block and above the Spar Supermarket.

The telephone, fax number and email address have remained the same and we look forward to seeing you at the new offices soon.

New Golf Courses

The New Doña Julia Course has opened in Casares between Estepona and La Duquesa.

The golf course is part of an ambitious residential complex of 6.5 million of m2 including 3 golf courses and two luxury hotels run by Hyatt

The newly opened first course is a par 71 (5530 meters from the yellow tees) and is easily accessible from the coast road just beyond Estepona. The high season green fee is a reasonable €57.

El Chapparal
After a postponed opening El Chapparal in Fuengirola will now open on February 28th.

Malaga Airport Chaos and Car Rental

Firstly we would make our annual appeal to those wanting to rent cars for the summer and other high season periods such as mid-term to do so as soon as their flights are booked. Certain modes, in particular people-carriers and automatic cars can be in short supply.

Car parking at the airport has become a nightmare as the car park is simply closed for redevelopment. It’s hard to believe but the airport authorities simply close the car park for long periods during the day and there is no plan B.

This can make returning cars a tad problematic. Espacar, our main provider of cars are fortunate enough to have their depot on the main roundabout at the entrance to the terminal and are asking renters to return cars to the depot and they will then drop you up to the terminal or you can just walk up.

E111 Form ended December 31st 2005

The E111 Form, which provides all EU nationals with free or reduced-cost medical treatment within the European Union, is only valid until December 31st 2005. After that, it will be replaced by the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC).

A plastic card valid for between 3 and 5 years, it works much in the same way as the E111.. Each family member will need his or her own card and you may apply for it at your local Health Authority.
