This sun drenched coastal region fuses laid back charm with five star resort style. Paint drives against the majestic Mediterranean backdrop that sparkles light with yellow icing as a mirror for the sun. The warm tones spill over to the Golden Mile, Costa del Sol’s glitzy thoroughfare of sophistication where 100-foot yachts sit snugly against the shore. After a round, throw on the shades, strut your stuff and stop along the parkway that stretches from Marbella to Puerto Banus while you sip and see. Great golf can be found both north of the city and as far south as the nearby town of San Rogue, which notably is also home to the region’s most famous course, Valderrama. Known as the “Augusta National Golf Club of Europe”, the club hosted the 1997 Ryder Cup, triumphantly won by Team Europe and captained by the legendary Seve Ballesteros. With each passing year the legend also grows for this well celebrated golf destination.
