To the hunt of a different and full of emotion and sport summer? What about to combine a dip in the sea or pool with golf in some of the best courses of the country? Still many people consider golf a minority sport, but the know-how, concentration and technique requiered make more and more people practice golf in their day life and during their relaxation time.
With destinations such as Majorca and Malaga’s coastline as worldwide references (at least as far as enjoy sport on vacation), in Spain you can find other locations with a long golfing tradition but with a lower percentage of mass tourism (because at ultimately what we all seek in our summer vacation is rest, rest and rest).
Why golf in summer
The eternal question of those who, above all, consider high doses of beach on vacation. Besides being a sport practiced only outdoors, golf is a leisurely, quiet discipline that invites you to take a few moments of rest and to be in touch with nature (yes, the same one that involves golf courses). Features that fit perfectly with the quiet pace of life that we all seek in our summer vacation.
The best thing about this sport? You do not need to be an expert, basic principles can be learned in a few hours with the help of trainers in each course and each destination.
Perfect destinations to practice golf
Beyond the traditional golf destinations, our country has reference points concerning golf tourism. The following three options are highly recommended for those who want to escape the tourist hubbub and crowded golf courses:
Experts say that Chiclana is one of the most beautiful beaches around Cadiz. With its low houses, its sandy beaches and the Atlantic that characterizes all points of the province of Cadiz, Chiclana is one of those places where playing golf is a tradition and experience.
The most active area for this sport? The beautiful Sancti Petri, a residential area with very exclusive highly qualified golf courses.
In front of Cadiz and with the Coto Donana acting as a dividing line, we find Isla Canela, one of the most beautiful and authentic natural jewels throughout the province of Huelva.
Besides its natural landscapes, unspoilt beaches and its proximity to Portugal, Isla Canela is one of those places to enjoy golf and beach vacation away from the tourist bubbub.
Our last recommendation about golf destinations is Costa Adeje, in Tenerife. A calm and quiet place as everything related to Canary Islands. Speaking of golf courses is to talk about quality courses overlooking the Atlantic, with everything you need to convert a sporting vacation into an experience.
