For golf lovers
With an extraordinary climate, Spain is the number one golf destination in Europe with award-winning resorts across the whole territory.
With more than 45 courses, Costa del Sol is indeed a golfer’s paradise. My favorite top Courses include 1997 Ryder Cup Venue, Valderrama Golf, the Volvo World Match Play Championship course for three years in a row, Finca Cortesin, or Real Club Sotogrande that commonly ranks in Europe’s top ten. The Greve Villa is a unique property close to the golf clubs and the perfect base to enjoy the cosmopolitan life of Sotogrande.
In the North of Spain, you can find familiar favorites such as the Pedreña golf course, the homeland of the legendary Severiano Ballesteros. It is situated in one of the most beautiful regions Cantabria between pinewood forests and with magnificent views of the bay of Santander. For its location, panorama and aesthetic, Pedreña is one of a kind. To round up a great experience discovering the north, I recommend staying at the exclusive Los Hornillos Palace, the mansion where Alejandro Amenábar filmed “The Others” with Nicole Kidman in 2001.
