With Marbella's stunning coastal views and frequent inflow of well-heeled visitors, it should come as no surprise that golfing is a popular pastime here. Many of the region's top hotels boast their own courses, but if you want to venture beyond your resort, you'll find several highly praised greens.

One of the most popular is Los Naranjos Golf Club, which is located down the coast from central Marbella near Puerto Banús. Recent visitors said the greens are immaculately kept and that the staff was friendly and helpful. The course charges different fees based on the time of year and the number of holes played. For instance, from March to May and October to November, Los Naranjos charges 59 euros for nine holes (about $70); it charges 44 euros per nine holes (or about $52) between late May and September.

Marbella Club Golf Resort, located about 15 miles down the coast from central Marbella, is another favored spot. The staff members earn high praise from recent golfers thanks to their warm and friendly service, but others warn of potential pickpockets. Tee times will cost visitors who are not guests of the adjoining hotel 80 euros (about $95) for a round of 18 holes.
