Caption: A golf trip to Spain makes for a glorious getaway

If you are thinking about golf abroad this year, then Spain's Mediterranean coast will be a joyful discovery.

Here you will find some of the finest courses in Europe and the wonderful Mediterranean climate means you can play golf almost every day of the year. The choice is superb, with championship venues aplenty. Add to this a host of additional leisure activities -- theme parks, spa resorts as well as stunning beaches -- and you're set for a glorious getaway.
The majority of golf courses in Catalonia are in its coastal areas, with clubs on the Costa Brava in Girona, the Costa Daurada in Tarragona and along the coast of Barcelona. When it is time to put the clubs away, you could have a relaxing treatment at Spa Resorts in Caldes de Malavella and Caldes de Montbui. Discover some stunning landscapes with an outing to Garrotxa and explore the universe of Salvador Dalí at his theatre-museum in Figueres.

You can also visit the UNESCO World Heritage-designated works of Gaudí in Barcelona. Have a fun day out at the Port Aventura Theme Park, take a boat trip at the Salou-Cambrils-Montroig Marine Resort or take lunch in the old town of Sitges.
There are more than 20 golf courses between Majorca, Minorca and Ibiza -- the majority in Majorca but there is no problem getting from one island to another with scheduled sea and air services. Here, not only will you enjoy the golf, but also the countryside: for example, the Sierra de Tramuntana Mountains, the Cabrera National Park and Minorca, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. Art lovers will be more than satisfied with the cultural programme and museums to be found in Palma de Mallorca.

The historic centre of Eivissa has the World Heritage designation and the important megalithic monuments are also to be found around the archipelago. If you want to discover the most beautiful places in the Balearic Islands, then a boat trip is your best bet: they will organise every last detail for you at any of the five marine resorts.

You will find almost 30 golf clubs in the different provinces of Valencia -- Castellon, Valencia and Alicante. Play your favourite sport and enjoy all the flavour of the Mediterranean in renowned destinations such as: Altea, Benidorm, Dénia, Orihuela, Jávea, Gandía, Elche and Borriol, a town which hosts a PGA European Tour event each year.

If you are travelling as a family, there are so many options for children: from the Arts and Sciences Centre, through to the Terra Mítica Theme Park and the new Bioparc Zoo. Not to be missed either are the cultural routes in the city of Valencia and the wonderful Elche Palm Grove, which features on the UNESCO World Heritage list.

Murcia in southeastern Spain has about a dozen courses and this area is one big open-air spa resort: La Manga del Mar Menor. When you finish your round, go and experience the properties of its famous muds on the beach itself or at one of the treatment centres. Leave time for some water sports at the Mar Menor Marine Resort or discover the cultural wealth of Cartagena.
In the provinces of Almería and Granada you will find courses practically on the beach, such as those in Mojácar, Roquetas de Mar and Motril. The top golfing area is Malaga, with more than 40 courses to choose from. Here there are famous names such as Marbella and Estepona. You will also find several clubs in towns like Mijas, Benalmádena and Casares.

In the San Roque area, along the Mediterranean coast of Cadiz, you will find prestigious courses such as Real Club de Sotogrande and Valderrama, host for the 1997 Ryder Cup.
