Golf is one of the most prestigious kinds of sports due to its specific infrastructure, requiring serious financial investments, measured rhythm of the game and, of course, the atmosphere created by the surrounding natural landscapes.
Spain is no exception in its love of this unusual sport, and the Costa Blanca itself, with its incredibly comfortable climate, is often called the Costa del Golf, because of a large variety of courses for the golf professionals and enthusiasts. It is the province of Alicante where about 30% of all golf courses in Spain are located. Many urbanizations of this area offer golf courses that are located on their territory. Property owners in such prestigious areas, of course, enjoy a special status allowing them to discover additional opportunities.
Golf appeared in Scotland in the 14th century. In the twentieth century, it acquired the status of an international game. Preparation of golf courses requires high material, labour and time costs.
The best Spanish, English and American architects and constructors of golf courses work together on the Costa Blanca to create the clubs with a unique landscape and excellent lawn. The fields are equipped with 24-hour lighting, so that you can play the golf all year round. The top players, winners, runners up of international competitions and amateurs train here. Major tournaments are also held here.
Modern golf clubs have an excellent developed infrastructure and are designed to enjoy this aristocratic sport with the maximum comfort possible.
The association that unites Costa Blanca golf courses and the Costa Blanca Golfing Friends Club allows you to participate in the tournament without a license issued by the Royal Spanish Golf Federation. You only need to pay the membership fee to the club where the tournament is taking place and present a confirmation certificate of the country’s official golf federation permanent residence. The Costa Blanca Tourism Committee has additionally allocated about 150,000 euros for the installation of special signs directing to golf courses – this is a vivid example of how important to the coastal economy this sport is.
Active development of golf created a separate market segment – golf real estate. Luxury villas and apartment complexes are being built in the immediate vicinity of the golf courses. Such property attracts both experienced investors and common buyers. The unique climate, special social circle and the quality of construction become important factors for purchasing golf real estate not only for people who are keen on golf, but also for everyone who really enjoys calm, measured, healthy and prestigious club lifestyle.
