If you are just starting out in the wonderful sport of golf, here at Elba Hotels we’ll share a few tips and tricks as well as the top spots for playing.
Golf is a sport that requires moderate physical activity and some technique, and can be practised both individually and in pairs or groups. These characteristics make it appealing to both young and old and, therefore, more and more people are wondering how they can learn to play golf, the fourth most popular sport in the country.
Data tells us that the number of licenses has doubled over the last twenty years. This is largely due to the country's climatic conditions, with mild temperatures that make it easy to take care of the over 400 Spanish golf courses. More than one million tourists visit Spain every year just to play golf.
How to learn to play golf
Golf is a sport that you can always play, as it does not require extraordinary physical shape. The first step is to not be in a hurry to learn; there is plenty of time to perfect your stroke. The ball is still, but that doesn't stop golf from being a very precise sport.
Now you have another excuse to visit the province of Almeria, as, besides its beautiful landscapes, it has been named the 2019 Capital of Gastronomy.

Tapas, seafood and the overall quality offered by bars, restaurants and hotels in Almeria were just some of the factors leading to Leon passing the torch to Almeria in this annual event.
2019 Gastronomic Calendar
The Spanish Capital of Gastronomy (CEG) is an annual event that was created seven years ago by the Spanish Federation of Tourism Journalists and Writers (FEPET) with the collaboration of the Spanish Federation of the Hotel Industry (currently the Spanish Hotel Industry).
