The Best Golf Accommodation in Europe

By: Golfshake Editor | Wed 27 Mar 2019 | Comments


We love to hear the views of regular golfers, which was the objective and motivation behind the 2019 Golfshake Course Survey, where we asked for your feedback on courses and venues that you have experienced to help us identify the best and most visitor friendly across the UK & Europe.

Part of that was to discover the Best Golf Accommodation in Europe, with hundreds of golfers sharing their favourite. We have included the most popular selections below, a widely diverse collection, focusing on the leading three, noting them across the continental map. Responses were unsurprisingly dominated by destinations and resorts in Portugal and Spain, but we also saw accommodation in France, Ireland, Turkey and even Cyprus being regularly described by golfers as their best experience when travelling. 

Naturally, this does not claim to be a definitive list, and it's likely that the names featured are often the most frequently visited by the Golfshake audience, but what it should pick out are places that consistently deliver a comfortable and welcoming experience for guests, something that our golfers would Highly Recommend to others who are planning to embark on a golf holiday. 

La Cala Hotel

La Cala is an outstanding and renowned venue in the Costa del Sol, Spain. Known for its 107 comfortable bedrooms featuring spectacular views and well-equipped facilities, the hotel boasts a luxury spa and a series of highly regarded restaurants and bars, providing the hospitality and tranquillity that makes this a real standout base for golfers and one of the finest resorts in the country.

For golfers, La Cala Golf Club itself ranks positively wherever you look, with its three courses - Campo America, Campo Asia, and Campo Europa providing an enjoyable test and idyllic vistas, but when it comes to accommodation, it's pretty clear that our golfers have been left impressed by this superb hotel.
