The popular courses are extremely hectic from 8 am to around midday during the high season so it’s a sound recommendation to reserve your tee times as well in advance as possible. As a rule, if you wish to leave enough time to play 18 holes easily it is advisable to tee off by 5 pm at the latest during the summer season and around 1 pm in winter season. A lot of clubs provide a total caddie master service when it concerns club hire, shoes and cart hire – please arrange with the club ahead of time, as soon as again these items can be reserved well beforehand.
The majority of golf courses in Spain have quite stringent guidelines when it comes to clothing. Generally, you should use golf shoes with plastic spikes, collared t-shirts and the appropriate golf trousers/shorts – metal spikes are not allowed on the majority of courses. Again check out the course website or call ahead to get local rules. For some golfers this may seem weird to point out. Nevertheless, you would be shocked at the variety of golf players who show up at courses with the wrong playing golf attire.
All golf clubs will have some kind of Public Liability Insurance coverage included in the green cost although it is highly advisable that you get your own travel insurance which will cover the additional eventualities such as medical cover, theft of clubs, ‘hole in one’ insurance and repatriation and so on.
Driving buggies near greens, sluggish play, not letting players through, not raking bunkers, not fixing ball marks or replacing divots are ‘looked down upon’ (as in anywhere else on the planet) and you may incur the rage of a local marshal, and sometimes will be asked to leave the course immediately.
If you prepare to play over a number of days, spare yourself and try to consist of a rest day in the middle of your trip. Likewise a long flight and sleeping on an unusual bed can take its toll so try to prepare an easy first day to recuperate your strength – hit the practice greens and driving range.
