Want to improve your swing but unsure where? Tired of planning a day’s golf only for it to be ruined by the weather? Bored of going to the same club, experiencing the same holes? Looking for some variety? All of these questions can be answered in one fell swoop. Visit Galicia, and more specifically the A Coruña province, to enjoy some of the most lush, green courses in Europe.
It is no surprise some of the best golfers of the past 30 years, namely Sergio García and Miguel Ángel Jiménez, come from Spain given the options it has. The most famous golfer ever to come from these shores, the late Seve Ballesteros, was born in nearby Cantabria, in the north of the country. Is it any wonder golf has flourished as a sport in Spain when it can call upon some of the best courses around?
A Coruña, in particular, can satisfy the needs of all golfers. Whether you are a beginner or looking to take up a new sport, or maybe you are looking to reduce your handicap to single figures, A Coruña has an option for you. Moreover, the prices are particularly favourable compared to elsewhere in Europe.
From nine holes to 18, restaurants, high-class facilities and excellently maintained greens, A Coruña hits all the right notes.
