The importance of golf in Spain tourism
Golf in Spain tourism is a significant contributor to the economy of Cádiz, with a 2022 report by Adeitur Consulting revealing that golf contributes over €770 million annually to the province, with a direct economic impact exceeding €400 million. Golf tourists in Cádiz spend an average of over €120 per day, significantly surpassing the overall tourist average in the region.
Until now, the Diputación has focused on positioning the province and Costa de la Luz as premier golf destinations. Efforts include partnerships with golf tour operators, enhancing air connections, and active participation in industry-specific fairs and events.
For decades, Tee Times Golf Agency has been promoting the golf of Cadiz and the Costa de la Luz with the best hotel & golf packages on world-famous courses. Sherry Golf Jerez, Real Novo Sancti Petri Golf Club, Villanueva Golf and La Estancia Golf are some of the best options in this fantastic region.
Sponsoring the DP World Tour and LIV Golf tournaments underscores Cádiz’s dedication to becoming a top choice for golf enthusiasts. With an emphasis on strategic planning and economic impact, the Diputación aims to further establish Cádiz as a leading destination for golf in Spain tourism.
