• Overview

    The Melia Marbella Banus Hotel, Puerto Banus, Costa Del Sol

    Located in the exclusive area of Puerto Banús, in the famous Golden Mile and very close to the beach and some of the most exclusive shopping and leisure facilities in Europe, the Meliá Marbella Banús Hotel is the perfect choice for our ‘Golf & Coaching holiday Spain.’ The hotel has an excellent location, extensive facilities and provides a high quality of service. The Meliá Marbella Banús provides 200 superb rooms with two double beds, different dining options such as the El Rio Verde Restaurant and the Patio Bar, free high speed WiFi internet, three outdoor pools and a Wellness Area with an indoor heated pool, sauna and Turkish bath.

    The La Quinta Golf Club

    Designed by three time world champion and Ryder Cup winner, Manuel Piñero, the La Quinta golf course is one of the most attractive courses in the area, and suitable to all levels of play. The course satisfies the amateur golfer in the same way as the professional. La Quinta has 27 holes, split into three 9 hole courses. The course forms part of a splendid natural landscape which encompasses the Mediterranean Sea to the south, the Benahavís Golf Valley and the surrounding mountains. The course has been remodelled, both in its design and its technical installations, and has become a regular venue for European Tour events.

    THE LA QUINTA GOLF ACADEMY

    The La Quinta Golf Academy, founded in 1990 is recognised both nationally and internationally as one of the top practice facilities in Europe. The facilities of the Academy comprise a twin level driving range, a covered area which allows for practice even under adverse weather conditions, a chipping and pitching area with a green surrounded by bunkers and a putting green, a video room for analysis and swing development, a golf shop and a pleasant café-bar with terrace with fabulous views to enjoy a moment of relaxation. The Academy provides the perfect environment for the tuition for the week.

Price Per Person

Price per golfer:                                   £1,495.00


Single room supplement:                             £35.00 per night


With many destinations in Turkey and North Africa now being ‘off-limits’ to the travelling golfer, much of the golf holiday market has returned to Spain and Portugal, and the hotels and golf clubs have responded by putting their prices up.  The ‘Brexit’ decision and the subsequent devaluation of the Pound, has compounded the price increases.  The cost of the ‘Golf & Coaching Week’ this year, is therefore more expensive than a year ago, although we feel that it still provides excellent value for money.  We wanted to illustrate though, why the price has risen.

Notes on the Prices:

Price includes:

– Services of your Tour Host, David Short

– Airport Transfers

– Accommodation

– Breakfast

– Dinner

– Tuition

– Golf


Price Excludes:

– International and internal airfares

– Lunches

– Drinks


Please note that in the past we have allowed a degree of flexibility with the number of clients attending the ‘Golf & Coaching’ events. However, in the interests of the clients who have booked we have decided that we must limit the number of clients to a maximum of 12. If you do wish to attend this event, we would therefore encourage early booking.
