THE Costa del Sol has once again been crowned the golf capital of Spain with 34 of its courses in Spain’s top 100.
The fourth edition of the much revered ranking, on www.top100golfcourses.co.uk, places three Costa del Sol courses in the top five.
Valderrama, in Sotogrande, is second behind Barcelona’s PGA Catalyuna, which is the product of more than a decade of planning and design by the European tour.
The 1997 Ryder cup was hosted in Valderrama as well as many other championships with TV coverage.
Sotogrande, constructed more than 40 years ago, and Finca Cortesin, one of Europe’s longest layouts, complete the coast’s top five presence at third and fifth respectively.
PGA Catalyuna and Valderrama also just edge into the top 100 courses in the world, topped by the Pine Valley course in New Jersey, USA.
