Spain’s status as the number one golf holiday hot spot has been confirmed by a new survey of golf tour operators compiled by KPMG’s Golf Advisory Practice.
The Golf Travel Insights 2013 report reveals that Spain is the most popular travel destination in the world for golf tourists, followed by Portugal and then Scotland. Interestingly Turkey has become the fourth most visited destination ranking ahead of traditional golfing hot spots including the Republic of Ireland, Dubai, South Africa, USA and England.
According to the report, global golf holiday sales grew 9.3% compared to the previous year with the surveyed operators alone catering for 1.6 million golf travelers in 2012. Indeed with golf holiday sales exceeding an estimated EUR 1.5 billion, this spells great news for those looking to invest in a golf property in the number one destination – Spain.
