While there are countless obvious positives associated with paying the likes of the Costa del Sol a visit, Spain has a whole lot more to offer and is a great destination for those looking to enjoy a city break with some golf on the side. Spain is home to some of the most fascinating cities in Europe and while there is plenty of choice across the breadth of the country, few come more highly recommended than Madrid.
If you’re a city lover, the Spanish capital has it all. The broad assortment of architectural history provides a glorious backdrop to life in the city; food lovers will be spoilt for choice in Spain’s culinary capital and with art and history at every turn, there will certainly be no shortage of things to keep you busy during your time away from the golf course.
Of course, for a spot of retail therapy there are few better places to be and with a legendary nightlife, Madrid will also appeal to those who are looking to carry on the fun and excitement long into the night. Sports lovers will also be right at home and after a day spent on the fairways or exploring the city, what better way to spend the evening than mixing it with the locals while watching Athletico or indeed Real Madrid, the world’s most glamorous football team, at the iconic Bernabeu stadium?
And speaking of golf courses, Madrid, while a bustling metropolis, is home to some truly stunning golf courses. Situated on Madrid’s outskirts, just a short drive from the heart of the city, the likes of Golf Santander, Elcin Golf Course and the amazing Casa de Campo – perhaps the largest sports club in Europe with an estimated than 10,000 members – are sure to tick all of the boxes for travelling golfers.
The Spanish capital also benefits from terrific travel links and infrastructure which adds a lovely dollop of convenience to what promises to be a memorable Spanish Golf Holiday.
