Golf courses in Spain
Around the entire country, there are many different golf courses. A mix of the climate, scenery and world-class course designers really make Spain a force to be reckoned with. In the future, Spain will be one of the best-golfing locations in the world competing with the likes of the US, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
Many of the courses in Spain have not only been designed by world-class designers but also world-famous golfers. This helps with the course design as they can implement challenges they faced in their own career, which makes the courses more competitive.
Courses such as the Las Colinas course, which has been named one of the best courses in Spain have been designed by world-famous designers. Cabell B Robinson designed this course. He has also designed courses in Portugal, France and the US.
