With its warm, sunny climate and stunning scenery, it’s no surprise that Spain has long been a popular destination for golfers – particularly golfers from the UK. To satisfy the high demand for golfing holidays, a wide selection of superb golf courses have been developed in Spain meaning that avid golfers are spoilt for choice when looking to buy a golf property in Spain.
Many of the golf courses in Spain have been developed into golf resorts, with luxury hotels, spas, swimming pools, restaurants and residential property developments supplementing the course itself. As the golf resorts have grown, the demand for properties near golf courses has also flourished. Unsurprisingly, UK golf lovers and property investors have been quick to invest in many of the properties which are on or near a course.
If you’re a keen golfer, and you love Spain, what could be better than combining those passions by owning a Spanish golf holiday home? No doubt you’re already sold on the attractive lifestyle that a golf property could provide. The next key question is, which are the best areas to buy a golf property in Spain?
As the demand for golf properties in Southern Spain continues to rise, we thought that it would be helpful to highlight key reasons why areas such as Murcia and the Costa Blanca are so popular with UK buyers.
Why choose to buy a golf property in Murcia?
Great golfing weather
Murcia is a hugely popular area for UK buyers of golf holiday homes, property investments and rental properties. With around 300 days of sun per year, it’s easy to see why Murcia’s sunny climate is so amenable to a round on the golf course. To take full advantage of the amazing weather, the area offers golfers a myriad of fantastic courses to play.
When taking a break from the course in Murcia, you’re not short of things to do and see. Murcia is rich with local attractions including beaches, restaurants, shopping, nightlife and beauty spots.
Lots of rental opportunities
Murcia is also clearly a popular destination for golf property investors and rental properties. Many golf property owners rent out their properties when they’re not there. Climate is obviously a key consideration if you’re thinking of renting out your property. UK golfers come to Spain to enjoy the weather, so an area like Murcia offering consistently good weather through most of the year, is ideal.
