English-owned Costa del Sol golf course, Estepona Golf, is leading the fight-back for affordable Spanish golf holidays. Now offering a 7-night play and stay with unlimited golf and range balls for just 299 euros per person, there’s no excuse for golfers not to return to their favourite golfing destination.
PGA golfer Darran Clark is Marketing Consultant for the concept and comments, “Unrealistic green fees forced many golf holidaymakers to vote with their feet and head to the fairways of upcoming Turkey and Egypt. The problem is however that most Northern European golfers prefer the Costa del Sol, feel comfortable here, are familiar with the 70-plus courses and favour the short flying times. Estepona Golf, in partnership with fabulous accommodation in course-side Alcazaba Hills, is inviting these golfers to come back to Spain and in return we pledge never to be beaten on value for money.”
Estepona Golf began flying the flag for Spanish golf when the global financial crisis was at its peak in 2009. Membership deals of unlimited golf for 99 euros per month and unlimited weekend golf for 49 euros per month were emblazoned across Costa del Sol motorway billboards and 100 new memberships were signed-up within two months of launch. Spanish golf was back in business and affordable once more – much to the vexation of neighbouring golf courses charging upwards of 99 euros for just one solitary 18-hole round.
Darran finishes, “In a downturn companies must listen and adapt to their clients’ needs, golf is no different. Courses have to be realistic in their pricing if they want to stem the tide of golfers testing out non-eurozone golfing destinations. Our message at Estepona Golf is that the Costa del Sol is open for business and 7 nights play and stay in year-round sunshine for just 299 euros per person is simply a low-cost flight away.”
And with 600 Danish golfers already booked into the Estepona Golf / Alcazaba Hills package for this summer, it looks like the fight-back is really on.
