Costa del Sol, Spain

Los Arqueros in the Costa del Sol

Often dubbed the Costa del Golf and boasting more than 70 courses, the Costa del Sol has the highest concentration of golf courses anywhere in Europe. With short nine-hole courses ideal for beginners to exquisite championship courses regularly picked to host Masters and Ryder Cup tournaments, such as Valderrama, there really is something to suit all level of golfer in this part of Spain.

Ideally located between the charming village of Benahavís and Puerto Banús, Los Arqueros Country Club is home to the first course designed by Seve Ballesteros. Its 18 exciting holes meander through the verdant, undulating landscape that forms a picturesque backdrop to the dazzling coastline of the  Costa del Sol. Amongst the property for sale beside the fairways is this three-bedroom penthouse apartment in the La Finca development, with a fantastic terrace and all just a few minutes’ walk from the clubhouse.

Golf home at Providence Golf Club in Davenport, Florida

Florida, USA
Year-round sunshine and the option to combine world-class golf with trips to the theme parks and shopping malls make Florida, dubbed the Sunshine State, a magnet for golfers and their families. No other American state is said to have more than Florida’s 1,250-plus golf courses.

Located in Davenport, just 15 minutes from Disney World and 30 minutes from Orlando, Providence Golf Club is home to one of Central Florida’s top courses. Next to the fairway there and within a smart, gated community is this fabulous six-bedroom detached home, with private pool and garden. The clubhouse with communal facilities isn’t far away either.
