Spain retains its crown as top golf destination in Europe

November 15, 2013

According to the latest European Spotlight on Golf Tourism to Spain research report commissioned by Reed Travel Exhibitions, out of the 28.5% of those who travelled to Spain to play golf in the last 12 months, 12.7% visited the Costa del Sol, 3.9% to the Costa Brava and 3.2% to the Canary Islands. 

This latest study also revealed that Spain has retained its crown as a key player in the European golf tourism industry with thousands of golfers from all over the continent putting Spanish greens and bunkers at the top of their tee off list.

Marc PritchardSales and Marketing Director  for leading Spanish house builder Taylor Wimpey España  comments,

"Whilst the course itself is an important factor when selecting a Spanish golfing holiday, the accommodation is equally important once you leave the fairway. Resorts with onsite courses, quality accommodation and amenities are in high demand as they offer the entire package and offer a higher level of security and community living.

"This new study commissioned by Reed Travel Exhibitions comes as no surprise to us here at Taylor Wimpey España. We have experienced a great level of interest in our golfing properties throughout 2013 from not only the British but Scandinavians, Russians and Middle Eastern buyers in particular, where overall purchases from this region have increased by 2,500% in September alone this year compared to the same period in 2012."

Interestingly, the research also revealed that a golfer´s nationality impacts on their choice of region to visit, with British and Scandinavian golfers preferring the Costa del Sol; French golfers more likely to visit Costa Brava; and German golfers travelling to all regions, with Mallorca a firm favourite.

Indeed, Spain boasts some of the most luxurious golf resorts in Europe, and the warm, sunny climate makes it a pleasure to hit the green. So what are you waiting for? Take a look at what Taylor Wimpey España has to offer today!

Los Altos del Golf   is a brand new development in the Port Andratx area of Mallorca, nestled in the heart of the Andratx golf course and only 500 meters from the famous Camp de Mar beach, consisting of large, detached two and three bedroom houses with stunning sea views.
