The Best Golf Courses In & Near Torrevieja
4th October 2022
A good walk, spoiled.
At least that’s how the old saying goes. Still – nothing quite beats the satisfying “thwack” of striking the ball just right, and watching it soar towards the fairway… Unless, that is, you keep catching the shank, or botching the swing. Or underestimating the wind.
Golf can get a little… frustrating. You know, maybe it really is a good walk spoiled! But there are hardly any feelings in the world better than a good day out on the golf course, when everything goes just right. Even if you do end up having to buy everyone a drink after a hole-in-one.
And if golf is your passion, getting some time with your clubs while you’re on holiday is a must.
As luck would have it, we’re in a great spot for golf lovers. Torrevieja – and the wider Costa Blanca area – boasts dozens of exceptional golf courses. Some of the best golf courses are right on our doorstep, within a 30-minute drive of Los Locos Beach.

1. Las Colinas Golf & Country Club
A short 25-minute car journey from the town centre, Las Colinas is Google’s top-rated golf course in Torrevieja, and carries an equally impressive rating on TripAdvisor. This prestigious golf and country club won the coveted prize of “Spain’s Best Golf Course” at the World Golf Awards – in both 2015 and 2016.
And for good reason.
Since opening to the public in 2010, local and visiting golfers have access to a seven-kilometre course, six lakes, and stunning scenery that blends into the natural landscape. With a fully-equipped clubhouse, wellness and fitness facilities – plus a range of high quality restaurants and bars – Las Colinas is definitely one of the very best golf courses in Torrevieja.
2. La Finca
With a rating of 4.6 out of 5 on Google and 4.5 out of 5 on TripAdvisor, La Finca might just be the most varied and enjoyable golf course around Torrevieja. So, if you believe that variety is the spice of life, La Finca is the golf course for you.
The 18-hole course is home to the widest variety of greens in the area. La Finca offers gorgeous views – plus two chipping and putting greens, a practice bunker, a driving range and a modern clubhouse.
Located about 20 minutes’ drive northwest of Torrevieja, this immaculately-kept golf course prides itself on catering to a wide range of skill levels – and offering world-class wellness services for those with a keenness for relaxing.

3. Vistabella Golf
It’s hard to find an ugly golf course anywhere in the world – but Vistabella Golf Course is one of the most beautiful venues for the sport we’ve ever seen. From the picturesque, manicured greens that blend seamlessly into the rolling hills to the excellent facilities on offer, Vistabella is well worth the 30-minute drive from Los Locos Beach for a round.
Conditions are great year-round, and sessions are well priced in all seasons. There’s a great pro shop with top brands in stock, a restaurant with an international menu and live entertainment – and the general atmosphere is laid-back, yet high quality.
4. Las Ramblas
A wonderfully challenging course, Las Ramblas is consistently cited as one of the best golf courses in Torrevieja for skilled players. The pine-studded, 18-hole course is full of surprises (including flocks of geese), and has a loyal membership, owing to the high service levels and quality of golf on offer.
It’s expensive, even by the standards of a country club. But in exchange, you get world-class facilities. It’s one of the few accessible golf courses in the Costa Blanca region, including its wonderful roof terrace at the restaurant – which serves classic Mediterranean cuisine, accompanied by tasteful live music and exquisite wines.

5. La Marquesa
La Marquesa is one of the most historic golf courses on the Costa Blanca, and it’s just 20 minutes away from Los Locos Beach.
This prestigious Torrevieja golf course was the first local course to be awarded an ISO 9001 certificate for excellence. It’s a well-liked spot amongst locals and visitors, largely thanks to being designed by local legend Justo Quesada Samper – who developed the course to attract investors to the area.
Needless to say, it worked – and it opened the door for the other golf clubs in the Torrevieja area.
