It might be low season to play golf on the Costa del Sol in July and August, but the summer months come with lots of advantages when it comes to a golf holiday. Not only can you enjoy other attractions in the area, you get the opportunity to relax and do what you love most. Best of all? Some of the best green fees of the year. Read on to discover the reasons why you should be getting out those clubs this summer on the Costa del Sol.

Get the best green fees

Our first reason to play golf on the Costa del Sol this summer is perhaps the best especially if you’re looking to give your wallet a pleasant surprise. July and August mean low season for golf and that translates to some of the best green fees of the year.
Make that deal extra specially sweet with the Rio Real dynamic pricing system. It works on demand so all you have to do is check out the calendar and pick the green fee that suits you best. 

Stay in the best accommodation

As well as some of the best golf courses in Spain, the Costa del Sol also does hotels very well. Why combine the two and stay at a hotel on the golf course? Picture this – waking up every single day of your holiday with the course right outside your window.
Make that deal extra special when you book a Pure Golf package at Rio Real. The best accommodation in a boutique hotel (breakfast included) plus golf tuition giving you no excuse not to play golf on the Costa del Sol this summer. Take a look and book yours. 

Make the most of the beach

If you’re staying on the Costa del Sol, you’ll also want to make the most of the beaches. You’re spoilt for choice with sands for everyone along the length and breadth of the coast. Check out our top picks for the best here

Enjoy those balmy evenings

Summer on the Costa del Sol means long evenings spent at a beach bar or your favourite restaurant, taking stroll along the seafront or enjoying a little something on one of the cocktail terraces. Or just contemplating the view from the terrace in your hotel room.
Make it extra special and book a room with golf views – did you know that all rooms at Rio Real Boutique Hotel have a large private terrace overlooking the golf course and the mountains? 

Go to Starlite and other events in Marbella

Events in Marbella come into their own during the summer months so why not take advantage of the great line-up when you play golf on the Costa del Sol? The jewel in the crown is Starlite Festival with a long list of world class artists and musicians playing in July and August. Check out the programme highlights here. 

Taste the local gastronomy

Another reason to play golf on the Costa del Sol this summer is that you’ll get the chance to try some of the delicious local cuisine while you’re there. Delight your taste buds with traditional Andalusian dishes – it doesn’t get much better than chilled gazpacho and grilled sardines on the beach. And then take your foodie feast to the next level at one of the Michelin-starred restaurants on the Costa del Sol.

Relax in peace and quiet

Really? On the Costa del Sol in high season? Yes, we’re serious but you have to choose your spot. While the resorts and beaches come packed to bursting point in summer, there are still some places where you can relax in absolute peace and quiet. And Rio Real Boutique Hotel is one of them. But don’t take our word for it, book your stay and see for yourself. 

Do what you like best

And lastly on our list of compelling reasons to play golf on the Costa del Sol this summer is you. Make this July and August a time for you to do what you like doing best: playing your favourite game all summer long. And remember, the best deals you’ll find anywhere are just one click away
