Golfers go in search of the perfect pad close to the fairway
The prestigious Andalucian Open is returning to one of Europe’s most idyllic golfing destinations, the Costa del Sol, this September.
The event, held between 22nd and 25th September, is set to be broadcasted to over 100 countries and will see pro golfers Lydia Ko and Michele Wie go head to head. Having hosted over fifty tournaments in the last four decades, this region of Spain is more than prepared for the thousands of visitors due to attend this prestigious event.
As the Costa del Sol continues to host international events, the golfing prowess of the area is causing local property to become increasingly desirable to fans of the sport. The latest figures released by the Real Federación Espanola de Golf show that 68% of golf courses in Spain now have a direct or indirect link with a real estate development and it seems those situated on the Costa del Sol are firm favourites.
Marc Pritchard, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey Espana believes golf properties are favourable with holiday home buyers and investors alike. He explains, “For fans of the sport, golf properties provide the idyllic base for any holiday or retirement plans with high quality facilities right on the doorstep. Buyers should consider properties near a golf course that is also considered a resort, offering an array of additional facilities to keep the non-golf players in the party equally as happy. Down on the Costa del Sol, also known as the ‘Costa del Golf’, the plentiful sunshine and dry, warm days allow for visits throughout every season or equally an exciting rental opportunity.”
Situated in the beautiful valley of Mijas, Horizon Golf is Taylor Wimpey de Espana’s second development at La Cala Resort within the complex’s famous Campo Asia golf course. With prices starting from €267,000+VAT, the private gated development offers 55 terraced homes, all with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a cloakroom, as well as 48 2 or 3 bedroom apartments.
