    Costa Del Golf

    by TRimer Written Oct 29, 2002
    Golf!!!

    When the Costa del Sol experienced a renaissance as a winter golf resort in the late eighties, the phrase "Costa del Golf" was coined. Between 1985 and 1991, no fewer than 17 new golf courses appeared, bringing the total along this 50 mile stretch of coast up to thirty. This concentration of quality golf courses, combined with the unique sunny and warm winter climate enjoyed by the region, led to its becoming unrivalled as a winter golf destination for northern Europeans, who while emerging as a serious force at all levels of golf, were deprived of the opportunity to play during the harsh winter months.

    When Valderrama was chosen to host the Ryder Cup in 1997, the Costa del Golf received universal recognition as the finest winter golf resort in Europe, Advance reservations for the millenium led to a flurry of new golf courses to be constructed.

    Equipment: The Marbella Golf Institute is one of Europe´s premier golf schools providing exclusive instructional programs. Our location, Marbella, offers the ultimate in golf destinations and climate to let you enjoy ideal golf learning experience

    Mirador de Juanar

    by Carmela71 Written Sep 26, 2002

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The magnificent mountain known as 'La Concha' (the shell) is part of a range that extends across the skyline to the village of Ojén.

    Take the road to Ojén and turn left into the beautiful park called 'Juanar', where the mountainside is covered in pine trees, pinsapos, walnut and olive trees, as well as wild orchids - and some wild animals, including Hispanic wild goats, eagles and Royal owls.

    At one of its highest points stands 'El Mirador' where you can look down on one of the most spectacular views of Marbella and its surroundings.
