Costa Blanca is a land of golf
Thanks to the mild temperatures that we enjoy all year round, and the privileged geographical location, the Costa Blanca is one of the most exclusive and requested regions when it comes to golf. The quality of its lawn, the proximity to airports, the advanced infrastructure and the high level of accommodation such as hotels and holiday apartments favors thousands of national and international visitors to the numerous fields of golf offered by the area. So much so, that last year the Costa Blanca was awarded the “Golf Destination of the Year” on european level by the Global Golf Tourism Association.
In addition, in May 2017 the ACGCBCV organized the “IAGTO COSTA BLANCA GOLF TROPHY – VALENCIA REGION” one of the most important promotional golf events in the world, in collaboration with AVT and IAGTO, showing the tourist offer of the destination to 60 golf tour operators of 18 countries. This action was a historic opportunity to position the Costa Blanca and the Valencian Community one step above their status on the international tourist map.
The Association of Golf Courses of the Costa Blanca, founded in 1992, groups most of the fields and clubs in the province of Alicante. Today it has a total of 23 golf courses and 28 hotels with partner facilities.
