The Costa del Golf, a Golfer’s Paradise

Andalucía has made a name for itself on the world stage as a premier golf destination.

Since 1966 when the first major international tournament, the Open de España, was held at the Royal Sotogrande Golf Club the area has attracted a host of international golf stars who have come to compete in over 70 major professional tournaments such as the Ryder Cup, the World Cup and the Volvo Masters.

There are more than 500 golf courses in Spain and approximately 120 in the region of Andalucía alone, many of which are ranked amongst the best in the World.

With the highest concentration of greens and fairways to be found in the whole of Europe, it is little wonder that the Costa del Sol is known as the Costa del Golf.

Dedicated golfers looking to purchase a home have the option of frontline properties situated on top quality courses located in privileged areas with beautiful landscapes and idyllic scenery or something situated on one the exclusive residential estates within golf resorts located within a short distance from a club.
