Golf has been growing in popularity around the globe. According to We Are Golf, a coalition of the sport’s leading organisations, 2.5 million people played golf for the first time in 2016 – up from 1.5 million in 2011. What’s more, the number of ‘latent golfers’ – non-golfers who’re interested in playing the sport – doubled from 6.4 million to 12.8 million in the same period. If these trends are anything to go by, the demand for golf is set to increase exponentially over the next decade.

As a result of this growing interest, many players – and prospective players – will be on the lookout for the world’s best golf properties. But with so many destinations to choose from, selecting the perfect holiday home at which to hone one’s skills is no easy task.

Currently, one of the most popular areas is Spain, which has produced a number of great golfing talents, including Seve Ballesteros, Sergio García and Miguel Ángel Jiménez. The country also offers delightful climates in which to play. Villa Value, an estate agency with more than 35 years’ experience, has established itself as a firm favourite among buyers hoping to enter the Spanish property market.
