If the chief motive of your Spain vacation is to tee off at a spectacular golf course and wind down at a comfortable hotel room or resort suite, the options are diverse. Our picks include the much-lauded El Saler with its challenging holes and the four-star Parador El Saler offering Mediterranean views, spa facilities and a grass football pitch, as well as the Alcaidesa Links Resort whose stunning layout and views of the Rock of Gibraltar beckon golfers by the droves who may either stay at a nearby 4-star hotel with poolside bar and conference room or settle for the homely feel of a hotel-apartment with private terrace or balcony. 

When in Switzerland, you may want to test your skills at the Golf & Country Club de Bonmont with its panoramic views of the Alps and well-maintained parkland terrain, and play a few rounds at the 18-hole championship golf course of nearby Domaine de Divonne Grand Hotel/Casino, where your kids can watch movies at the theater while your wife relaxes at the spa or bar.
