Golf in the SUN

Now that, what the meteorologists referred to as summer, in Northern Europe has ended many of you will be looking forward to a sun golf break on the Costa del Sol.
The good news from the Costa del Sol is the increasing trend towards stable or even falling green-fees. A significant number for courses have made substantial improvements in their pricing either in terms of lower overall green-fees or a better seasonal spread whereby the high season period is being reduced in favour of wider mid and low seasons.

The downward pressure on green-fees is a result of the number of new quality courses which have opened in the last 2 or 3 years. These include:

Finca Cortesin
El Chaparral Golf & Country Club
Santana Golf & Country Club
La Cala Europe
San Roque New.
Flamingos Championship

Some of the courses offering excellent value this autumn include, La Cañada, Santa Clara, Calanova and Real Club de Golf Sotogrande.

Golf Club Hire

With an increasing number of groups coming on shorter stays coupled with the hassle and expense of taking golf clubs on planes Golf Experience has tied up with Spain biggest supplier of club rentals to provide you with the option of leaving your courses at home.

We can supply all the latest clubs in just about any form (shaft types) and length. For as little as €60 rental for 3 days you can have your clubs delivered to your first tee-box on day one and collected after your last game.

Car Hire

This summer saw panic on the Costa as the mayor car-hire companies cut their fleets which resulted in a general shortage of vehicles. Once again our clients were well served by our excellent personalised service provided at Malaga Airport. We would urge clients not to leave their car rental reservation to the last minute, particularly if they require specific models such as automatics or people carriers – during school holiday periods.

Passenger disruption at Malaga airport has eased with the partial completion of the car-park. Once again clients can use the short term car-park for collection and drop off of rented cars.

Apartment and Villa Rentals

In addition to the wide variety of hotels which we use on the Costa del Sol and the Algarve we also have a varied selection of apartments and villas available for rental for golfers and holiday makers alike.

Christmas in the Sun

Let’s face it the winter is long and often dreary. Why not look forward to a sun break on the Costa del Sol with the family and escape the weather and all the hype.

Golf Experience can supply all the elements of a family holiday, accommodation (hotel, apartment or villa), transport and excursions. So go book those flights before they get too expensive and we will take care of the rest.

The Open

How could we omit to add our congratulations to Padraig Harrington for brightening up an otherwise dull summer on that memorable day in Carnoustie?

The Tommy Murphy Cup

And finally the other sporting highlight of the year deserving of a mention was Wicklow’s wonderful success in the Tommy Murphy Cup. Well done lads and roll on 2008!

And for those of you who don’t appreciate the significance of Wicklow winning the Tommy Murphy Cup you will no doubt have noted Ireland’s success in the Cricket World Cup.

They told us it was a difficult game but the lads in green learned fast. And how did they do it?

These are all worth a try if you haven’t already tested your metal on them.
