New Delhi, May 08, 2019: From golf tourism to house prices, Spain’s Mediterranean coast is looking particularly healthy at present. What better time, then, for leading Spanish home builder Taylor Wimpey España to launch its newest golf resort show home?
Green Golf at Estepona (Malaga) is ideally positioned to court the rise in interest in Spanish golf resorts. Today’s Golfer Magazine’s Top 100 Golf Resorts in Continental Europe 2018/19 included 25 Spanish destinations, meaning that Spain alone accounts for a quarter of the best courses across Continental Europe.
Meanwhile, Tee Times Golf Agency, which serves both Spain and Portugal, has reported a near-30% uptick in the number of rounds that clients played between the November 2017-February 2018 and November 2018-February 2019 periods.

That’s against a backdrop of tourism numbers in Spain rising by 3.7% in 2018, when almost 90 million people chose Spain for their holidays. Over the winter months (November 2018-March 2019), the Costa del Sol in particular saw tourism thrive, with 3.2 million visitors – the area’s best ever winter season, according to government figures. That number is expected to rise to 13 million travellers by the end of the summer season, which would represent an all-time high for the Costa del Sol.

“Golf has always been an important element of Spain’s tourism offering. We have the ideal weather, incredible scenery and some simply outstanding courses. Add to that the charms of the coastline and the excellent cuisine and it’s clear to see why Spain’s golf resorts hold such strong and lasting appeal.”
Marc Pritchard, Sales and Marketing Director of Taylor Wimpey España
The Mediterranean coast is also thriving in terms of its housing market. Prices there rose by 4.5% in the year to April 2019 according to the latest data from Tinsa. That’s a greater increase than was seen in any other area of the country.
Within this booming area, Green Golf delivers high-specification homes to families looking to be at the heart of the golfing action. With panoramic views over the course at Estepona Golf and out to sea, the properties enjoy an incredibly picturesque setting. Natural light is maximised through their south/southwest positioning and sophisticated design.
The new Green Golf show home highlights the development’s superb credentials. The large, south-facing terrace is ideal for outdoor dining or general relaxation, while the interior is bright and spacious. A large communal pool and landscaped gardens complete the offering, making this the perfect option for happy holidays with family and friends. Prices start from €280,000 plus VAT.
“The Mediterranean coast has been a popular holiday destination for decades, with golf playing a major role in driving that. We’re delighted to be building on this history of success by presenting contemporary homes for holidaymakers looking to experience Spain’s unique brand of relaxation and enjoyment.”
Marc Pritchard, Sales and Marketing Director of Taylor Wimpey España
