“Yes We Can”, in the words of a famous American Orator “Yes We Can” overcome this Credit Crunch with unbelievably good value.

The Costa del Sol and in particular its many great courses have reacted with a myriad of special offers designed to attract the hard strapped Northern European Golfer.

While we, the Golf Tour Operators have been pleading with the courses to show restraint over the last few years they have until recently largely ignore us.

However now they seem to be racing to out-do each other with special offers and promotions.

Special Offer on Gran Flamingos

Offers now available include 50% reductions in the form of 2 for 1 offers at Gran Flamingos or 36 holes for the price of 18 at Mijas (play same day).

Rio Real Golf Club 25% Reductions

Many other course have succumbed to including buggies in their green-fees which in many cases represent as much as a 25% reduction.

Rio Real, Los Naranjos and Almenara, Los Arqueros, El Paraiso and Atalaya new are among the plethora of courses offering free buggies most of the year.

Real Club de Golf Las Brisas – €40 off!

The wonderful Robert Trent Jones designed Real Club de Golf Las Brisas has appointed Golf Experience as one of a handful of operator to sell green-fees during 8 month of the year. In 2008 the rates was €160 while we will be happy to book you a round for €120 during 2009.

Cost saving Ideas to help with the crunch

Eating In..
Most of our groups who stay at the many popular hotels tend to do so on a Bed & Breakfast basis and go to restaurants for their evening meal.

This can add considerably to the cost of a Golf trip. By taking the half-board option at a good 4 star you can have your dinner for as little as an additional €5 a night.

Club Rental..
If coming for a short trip and just playing 2 or 3 rounds, why not leave your clubs behind and rent here. We can rent you the latest material for as little as €20 a day which will be less that what your airline will charge for transporting them.

Other News…

Finca Cortesin seem to be unsure of the hosting of the 2009 World Cup Championship Match Play – first scheduled for 24th – 27th Sept and now being penciled in for later in October as somebody discovered that the original dates clashed with some other major tournament.

To prepare for the event they have had to close the course for 2 months this winter and again it is scheduled to be closed from Oct 2nd – 20th with considerable loss of revenue.

One must really question the benefit of hosting golf tournaments!
