See below for details of MALAGA GOLF & EL SALER which have their own on-site 27-hole courses and offer 50% green fees to Parador guests. Many other Paradore have arrangements for reduced green fees at local courses – see map below.

There are also descriptions and photographs of some of our group holidays including golf since 2005.


Step out of your room onto the golf course at Malaga Golf

MALAGA GOLF:  October 2021, staying at the Parador at MALAGA GOLF. 

This will be an opportunity to play on the 27-hole course with green fees reduced to 41 euro  for guests.

There will be interesting excursions on non-golfing days and for non-golfers, including a guided tour of the historic centre of Malaga, followed by dinner at the Parador at Malaga Gibralfaro.

Malaga Golf is close to the airport so there are no long journeys.

As the Parador  is only a short taxi journey from the airport there are alternative fllights from Ireland and the UK if people prefer to fly at different times or would like to extend the holiday and fly on other days.

All rooms with balconies or terraces.




Bachelor Con Cluskey has written his memories of this holiday......


Both Paradores - Malaga Golf & El Saler - have their own Golf Courses and offer reduced rates to their guests, We played both and were very impressed especially with El Saler with its fast true greens and immaculate fairways. (They are having The Spanish Open there soon) Just to step out of your bedroom door at both hotels and be straight on the golf course is heaven!

We travelled from El Saler to Malaga via the new Parador at Lorca,  Granada and Nerja. Now if you want a real touch of Heaven, stay at Lorca. From the moment you walk through the front door the only word on your lips is WOW! After many millions of Euros having been spent on it, this hotel comes very highly recommended. The views from the bedroom windows are stunning, and as you dine you can survey the illuminated Jewish and Muslim Ruins excavated and preserved in the building of this magnificent hotel.

Our stop over at both Granada and Nerja were also breath taking experiences, with the hospitality of the staff and gourmet food to die for. As a golfer, my favourite is Malaga. So easy to get to, the hotel is just minutes from the airport, and the moment you check in you're in Golfers Paradise!

We shall be talking about this golfing holiday for some time to come.

Con Cluskey, Golf Organiser

Hi, I'm Con Cluskey better known as Lead Singer with The Bachelors.

Since 2005 I have organised the golf competitions on Lorna's Parador holidays. We spent a week in May in Galicia in North West Spain, staying in the Paradores at Baiona and Santiago and played golf at Ria de Vigo, a spectacular 18 hole course overlooking the city and bay of Vigo

Our group in April 2010 stayed at the Parador at AIGUABLAVA and played 18 holes at PLATJA DE PALS. Congratulations to Veronica O'Shea who won the competition and received wine from Marques de Caceres and smoked salmon from the Connemara Smokehouse.

Another holiday included golf in May 2011, staying at Hotel Fuerte Conil on the Cadiz coast, and at the Paradores at Ronda and Malaga Golf. The competitions were held at Montanmedio (Cadiz) and at Malaga Golf. Congratulations to Anne Fagan who won the competitions

So That's how you swing a club!

Ready for hours of pleasure in the sunshine.

Keep your head down for a tricky pitch!

A Happy Three Ball on the 2nd Hole

Stop and Smell The Roses!

Happy to be here on the 18th at Malaga.

>>>>>>>>>>>> <<<<<<<<<<<<


On previous holidays we played  

At PGA Catalonia, Emporda and Platja de Pals whilst staying at the Paradores at Aiguablava and Cardona

At Montecastillo, Montenmedio, Baveira and Malaga Golf in Andalucia

At El Saler, Oliva Nova and La Sella between Valencia and Alicante. The Parador at El Saler has been completely refurbished and the course is now in peak condition so we intend to include El Saler in our holiday early in 2014.    

Our golf competitions are sponsored by Marques de Caceres bodegas in La Rioja and the Connemara Smokehouse, so prizes of wine and smoked salmon are delivered to you so there are no heavy prizes to carry home.

<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Spain is famed equally for its castles and its golf courses and with the Paradors network, both can be combined.

Two of the contemporary Paradors have fine golf courses in their grounds - the 27 hole course at El Saler is world-renowned and Malaga Golf is surrounded by one of the first courses created in Andalusia, now boasting 27 holes. Furnished with an excellent 19th hole and with your room just off the fairway, you are guaranteed to be the first or last off the tee. The Parador de Malaga Golf is also only 3km from the airport !

Whether you are a beginner looking to learn the mysterious art of golf or an old hand looking to enjoy two of Spain's finest courses, both Paradors can offer you wonderful golfing experiences at superb prices.

We are able to pre-book your tee-off time at the Paradors’ own two courses but we do recommend booking well in advance since both are popular.

Golf Competitions

These will again be organised by Con Cluskey, well-known on the celebrity charity golf circuit, and prizes will be from Marques de Caceres bodegas in La Rioja and from the Connemara Smokehouse.

GOLFING HOLIDAYS WHICH ARE ALSO RELAXING BREAKS FOR NON-GOLFERS - ideal for people who would like to stay in Paradores with a group but do not want to do too much traveling. We arrange interesting optional excursions for non-golfers.

For golfers there are 2 competitions on each holiday organised by Con Cluskey of  "The Bachelors" who has been involved in the celebrity and charity golf circuits for many years.

All green fees, buggies or trolleys are included

***Prizes from Marques de Caceres and the Connemara Smokehouse***




Our escorted tours are designed to introduce people to the areas of Spain and Portugal away from the overcrowded and overpriced resorts. They particularly appeal to those who say that they would like to visit the more remote areas but do not want to drive themselves, or go on a conventional coach tour, so we have tried to fill the gap by organising tours staying in Paradores and other hotels in "Real Spain" .We aim to make the tours as flexible as possible, giving plenty of free time to enjoy the Paradores in which we stay.

Since 2005 we have included golf on some of our tours. These are very different from the usual golfing holidays as golf is combined with the theme of our tours, visiting cities, National Parks etc and offering the unique experience of staying in Paradores in some of the most scenic and unspoilt areas of Spain.

We started our tours in 2002 and now have many regular people travelling with us, some have been over 20 times, so we are hoping that the idea of including golf 2 or 3 times a year will appeal to people who would enjoy an interesting holiday with some fun golf attached. We are so fortunate to have Con Cluskey organising the competitions. When he is not singing with "The Bachelors" he is very involved in the celebrity charity golf circuit, so is the ideal person to ensure that everything runs smoothly. Although we play at some of the finest courses in Spain, the golf is not taken too seriously. However the prizes are worth playing for as they are presented by Marques de Caceres bodegas in Rioja and the Connemara Smokehouse.

There are always plenty of alternatives for non golfers, and all our holidays can be extended if people wish to stay for a few extra days.

***If a group of 8 or more golfers book together the lead person would have free green fees and buggies + 5% discount on the accommodation***

For more details of all our tours see "Escorted tours" page on  www.lornarobertsholidays.com
