Golfers in general are sun worshipping creatures who only play in the cold wind and rain, wrapped up like a ‘mummy’ only because it is better than not playing at all.
Unfortunately in the UK the ‘sunny’ summer months now only last ‘weeks’ and the winter months get longer and ‘wetter.’
All too soon the golfing season is ended and we are back to courses closures, temporary greens and frost holes all of which sounds like something from a horror movie for avid golfers.
Surely there has to be another way for golfers to prolong their golf throughout the year in an excellent climate and at affordable prices and fortunately for you the answer is YES and it is to be found here in MURCIA.
Most people tend to think of golf in Spain as the millionaires playground around Marbella and Puerto Banus on excellent courses such as Valderrama and Sotogrande but playing in such an exclusive environment comes at a price.
So just why is Murcia such an ideal alternative location for golfers?
Situated just over 2 hours flight time from the UK and with excellent road links to two local airports, beaches, cultural attractions and golf courses why stay anywhere else?
Over the last 15 years there has been a massive property boom in Murcia and at one time there were planning applications to build up to 35 golf courses in the area.
Unfortunately the global financial crisis of 2008 and the subsequent economic crisis faced by all developed countries has impacted greatly on these plans however the region still has 17 excellent golf courses with cheap accommodation readily available as many of the courses were built as part of resort complexes.
The Murcia golfing region now extends from Aguilon and Lorca in the South to Lo Romero in the North and features a variety of golfing experiences from typical resort golf with numerous bunkers and water hazards to desert style courses not usually played by golfers from the UK.
Many of the these courses were designed by world famous golfers and golf architects such as Seve Ballesteros, Jose-Maria Olazabal and Jack Nicklaus so the pedigree of the courses is well established.
Whether you are just visiting the area for a golfing holiday or have decided to relocate to Spain on a permanent basis and wish to play golf at affordable prices then Murcia should be the place for you.
