Spain

Spain is the original and best package holiday destination. It’s synonymous with Brits who are hell bent on sun, sangria and holiday homes, yet Spain has so much more to offer with wonderful architecture, food and wine.

With more than 50 million visitors each year it is no surprise to hear that Spain is still one of Europe’s premier golfing destinations and also one of the first European countries to successfully market the “package golf holiday” making life so very pleasant and easy for foreign visitors.

There are now more than 300 Spanish golf courses and more are being built across the mainland, the Canary and Balearic Islands. These courses cater, not only for the many visiting golfers, but also for the 300,000 or so members who are registered to Spanish golf clubs.
