THE CLIMATE Mainland Spain has a distinct difference between the north and south – in Santander in the north, expect the sun for six hours from April to the middle of September. The further south, the warmer and drier, culminating in Almeria’s desert climate. The Canaries get yearround sunshine.
WHEN TO GO Canaries are great in winter but not uncomfortably hot in summer, when the courses are quieter. Spring is ideal for Sotogrande. GETTING THERE As most courses are near large tourist areas, Spain’s courses are very accessible. TIME GMT +1
