1. Costa del Sol's climate

With an average of 300 days of sunshine per year, Costa del Sol is known for its warm and sunny weather, making it a popular destination for golfers seeking to play in pleasant temperatures all year round. In spring, temperatures in Mijas range from 15 °C to 22 °C and are characterised by their low humidity, while in summer we enjoy long hours of sunshine and temperatures ranging from 25 °C to 35 °C. This ensures great weather conditions for those wishing to play golf under the Mediterranean sun.

Whether you are a beginner or a professional, there are a number of outstanding golf courses in Mijas to suit all levels and needs. Around the municipality of Mijas we find 12 important golf courses, each with its own characteristics and challenges, including two world-class golf courses.

Los Olivos and Los Lagos, for example, are two world-class golf courses designed by the renowned Robert Trent Jones. Having built more than 500 golf courses around the world, Jones applied his philosophy of “a difficult par but an easy bogey” to these two golf courses in Mijas, located just a short buggy ride away and directly accessible from La Zambra hotel.
