Top 10 Murcia Golf Courses - An In-depth Guide for Passionate Golfers
Murcia with its 320 days of full sunshine and never dropping beneath 0ºC in the winter months, alongside the dry and arid “desert” type landscapes, Murcia offers very unique Golf courses compared to other golf courses around the world.
Murcia is the driest region in Spain, which means that keeping the grass beautiful all year round is hard, so if you want the best grass to play on, you should be going in Spring/early summer, as August usually gets really hot and nearly unbearable to play comfortably unles you are hardcore and nothing will put you off from doing one more round. The Winter is also pretty great for golfing, if you don’t mind a bit of a chilly wind now and then that is.
