Will Sergio Garcia’s record-breaking success lead to a surge in Spanish golf property sales?

The 2018 Ryder Cup was a resounding success for Europe. They won back golf’s most famous trophy, and had the honour of hosting the competition for what was only the second time ever in continental Europe. Individual European players also shone – in particular, Spain’s Sergio Garcia, who became Europe’s all-time leading point scorer as a result of the competition.

Spain and golf go hand in hand – so much so that the cluster of golf resorts around the Malaga area of the Costa del Sol are referred to as the ‘Costa del Golf.’ The country has the ideal landscape and climate to encourage the proliferation of the sport, with the result that it is home to around 350 courses. Their sun-kissed locations include Andalusia and the Balearic Islands.

Now, with so much media attention on Sergio Garcia, Spain’s golf resorts are in the spotlight once again.

“Golfers from around the world look to Spain for high quality golf homes with outstanding course facilities that they can enjoy at any time of year. By specializing in golf properties, Taylor Wimpey España has worked with buyers from all over the world to find them their dream golf home in Spain over the past 60 years. In that time, we’ve noticed many a spike in interest when Spanish golfers have achieved something notable on the international stage – and we expect Sergio Garcia’s record-breaking success to trigger another wave of interest.”

The development includes penthouses with private 100m2 solarium, duplexes with wonderful terraces and ground floor apartments with private gardens.

The private, gated development also features beautifully designed communal gardens and pools. Prices start from €299,000 plus VAT.

In terms of the Balearic Islands, Mallorca is a haven for golfers. On the island’s eastern coast, Cala Murada is a collection of four exquisite townhouses just 150 metres from the beach and perfectly located for access to the prestigious Vall d’Or Golf Club. The homes are perfect for those looking for a stunning location from which to enjoy some of the best golfing facilities on the island. Prices start at €379,500 plus VAT.

“Spain has some absolutely superb golf courses, and owning a property either on or next to one of them makes the ideal second home for keen golfers. With property prices still some 36% lower than their 2007 peak, according to the latest TINSA data, there are still some real bargains available as the pace of the housing market continues to pick up.”
