Data from Spain’s National Statistics Institute also speak to the strength of the market, showing that 22 per cent more mortgage loans were signed in Malaga between January and July 2022, compared to the same period of 2021.

All golfers who are resident in Spain must obtain a licence from the Royal Spanish Golf Federation every year.
While golfers visiting from overseas don’t need to obtain a licence, they do need to provide a valid handicap certificate from their home club when playing on a Spanish course.
According to a report from IE University, the Spanish Association of Golf Courses and the Royal Spanish Golf Federation, Spain attracts 1.2 million golfers from overseas annually, making it the world’s leading destination for international golf tourism.
