Successful start of the winter season at golf courses in Almería

Almería golf courses have recorded record figures at the start of the winter season

RECORDS statistics for an Almería golf club during the month of October. Alborán Golf Club announced that it broke its all-time record on November 15.

For the first time since opening its doors in 2006, the club has reached over 6,000 visits per month, an average of over 220 people playing daily. Meanwhile, the club’s annual numbers have soared to 44,000, meaning the club is likely to break its annual player record, topping 50,000 by the end of the year.

The council’s golf course is also set to have a record season, nearly returning to 2019 levels, which were the best ever.

The success of the season for the golf industry is largely due to an effort to stimulate the northern European market. More Nordic golfers than ever have chosen to spend the autumn and winter months on courses in southern Spain thanks to marketing campaigns and better transport links.

Almería City Council has also created promotional campaigns to encourage local people to practice sport and take advantage of the excellent facilities available.
