Golf in Spain Free Article (see Terms)
If you are considering of playing a round for the very first time of Golf in Spain there are a couple things that you should know about to aid you in enjoying the experience. Below I will give you a few handy tips, the very obvious and the not quite so obvious to ensure your golf holiday is not spoiled. Many UK golfers book a package with very few problems, but increasingly others book their own Spanish Hotels, flights and golf tee times themselves, this is not quite as straight forward as it would at first appear.

Firstly check out the general availability of the golf tee times by telephone directly with the club, as there may be a members or local competition on there the day of your choice. It should be noted that some Spanish golf clubs will only allow you book them one month in advance, do not worry though, this need not be a big problem. I can speak from my own personal experience here as I have resided in the Costa Blanca for six years and have lost count of the number of messed up tee times that I have experienced. So rule number one is to book or confirm the tee times by fax. If the golf course does not reply you should assume it is not booked, if it does, retain the fax to take with you on holiday to show the caddy master on your arrival. Do not forget to confirm if you require golf buggies or not, if you are not used to the extreme heat of the summer, I would certainly recommend one.

You should also consider the tee times that you ask for very carefully, playing your round at nine in the morning might appear very good, but are you and your party really going to get up that early after the previous evenings drinking session? Now having said that, it is nice playing before the sun gets too hot, remember the noon sun in Spain especially in July and August is extremely powerful. Considering this take lots of drinks with you so you do not get to dehydrated. I always stuff a few of bottles of "aqua" and one of those freezer blocks in the bottom my bag in the summer.

Take a good sun cream and use it regularly is also most important, it has almost certainly been a very long time since your pale legs and arms have seen the sun and they will burn very, very quickly. Taking and actually wearing head gear of some type and keeping the nape of your neck covered is also most important in Spain, at the very least it will help prevent you getting a painful headache.

Finally, if you have not played a round in Spain previously, you should play within yourself. Do not reach for the driver out on every tee, be more conservative and aim only where you are able to see. This might sound very obvious but I have witnessed so many people strike a huge shot into a hidden hazard that they did not realise was there. The greens will usually be much quicker than you are used to at home, but be positive it always pays off, so go for it and enjoy a good holiday and game.
