There’s no doubt that Costa Blanca golf is a major part of the Cumbre del Sol experience. With wonderful weather all year and a Mediterranean climate that keeps the area’s greens sunny and warm, playing golf in Alicante is nothing less than a delight.
At Cumbre del Sol, a great game of golf is never far away. From the closest golf course, Jávea, all the way down the coast to Benidorm, here are several of our top picks for a day on the links.
Located only 10 minutes from Cumbre del Sol by car, the Jávea Golf Club wins for proximity and for the beauty of its well-tended greens. If you want to play golf on the Costa Blanca, right in your backyard, this is the place to go.
The course has a variety of tees to drive from, so your game will never be played the same way twice. This is golf in Alicante that’s not to be missed if you love a round in beautiful surroundings.
Heading farther south towards Teulada-Moraira, we come to the Ifach Golf Club. Set at one of the highest points of the surrounding countryside, this Costa Blanca golf course enjoys stunning views of the Mediterranean and of the unique geological formation, the Peñón de Ifach.
The Ifach Golf Club is open to the public and to guests, and it exudes a relaxed attitude that all visitors will find welcoming. Breathe in the smell of the pines, gaze out to sea, and play a round just 20 minutes from Cumbre del Sol.
La Sella Golf Club abuts the Natural Park of Montgó. It offers its visitors three varied courses (27 holes in all), each with different levels of difficulty, making this a destination that you’ll want to come back to again and again. The three courses are set among pines, lovely water features, and offer beautiful views to the sea, the Segaria mountain, and the surrounding natural park.
The route to this Costa Blanca golf destination will take you northwest of Jávea, but at only 30 minutes’ distance from Cumbre del Sol, it’s easily accessible.
The Altea Golf Club was established more than 40 years ago and is considered one of the classics of the Costa Blanca golf courses. The entire course and clubhouse were refurbished between 2004 and 2006, giving Altea a new lease on life, and updating all the key infrastructure systems.
What’s more, the town of Altea is one of the most charming villages in the area, making this a perfect destination for a round of golf plus a breezy walk on the seaside promenade after lunch.
