Spain is the original and arguably the best package holiday destination. It’s synonymous with Europeans 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.
According to KPMG’s Golf Participation Report for Europe 2019, Spain had 269,470 people registered with the Royal Spanish Golf Federation in 2018, comprising 63% male, 24% female and 13% junior golfers. They play on 345 courses on the mainland, the Balearic and Canary Islands, with a quarter of these layouts configured as 9-hole courses and two thirds laid out as 18-hole courses.
