Golf tourism grows 67% in Spain

by | Apr 7, 2017 | 0 comments

According to media reports Spain’s award-winning Costa Brava region has seen a 67% growth in the number of European golfers visiting the region in the last two years. The Costa Brava Tourism Board announced that the region, which celebrates 50 years of golf welcomed more than 103,000 golf visitors. The main countries of origin of golf tourists visiting between 2014 and 2016 were France, Germany, the UK and the Netherlands. The statistics also showed a healthy domestic market, with substantial golf visitors from Spain and the wider Catalonia area.

Ramón Ramos, Director of the Costa Brava Girona Tourist Board, said: “It has been very encouraging to see such an upswing in the number of golf visitors”. “Coupled with new flight routes to Girona-Costa Brava airport announced by Jet2, Transavia and Ryanair, we remain confident this momentum will continue and look forward to welcoming new – and returning – golf visitors to one of Europe’s most distinct and culturally-rich golf destinations.”

These figures demonstrate that Spain is the number one destination for Europeans to play golf, and the second destination worldwide after de U.S. We believe this is because of the unique combination that Spain offers: a great variety of golf courses, all year sun, and a one-of-a-kind culture, enhanced by its wonderful wine and gastronomy.
