The Costa Calida is renowned for year round sunshine making it an ideal destination for golfers. This year is no different and this week delegates from the Murcian Institute for Tourism are in London meeting with the top 3 golf tour operators to promote and strengthen the position of Murcia as a top golfing destination in Europe.
In continued efforts to promote Murcia as a tourist destination with something on offer for everyone, this week’s talks and meetings are boosted by a presence at golf fairs, press releases and general promotion of the region. The hope is that passenger numbers at Corvera airport will continue to show strong signs and a positive upward turn to compensate for any lull following the Brexit uncertainty. The aim is to attract up to around 14,000 British golfers to the region of Murcia this year. With an increasing range of UK destinations on offer from the Corvera airport there is ample opportunity to promote Murcia as a convenient and viable golf hot spot.
Murcia has a number of top golf courses across the region including the Jack Nicklaus designed course at El Valle, the West course at La Manga Club, the Signature Course at Alhama designed by Jack Nicklaus, the Dave Thomas designed course at Hacienda del Alamo and the La Torre golf course designed again by Jack Nicklaus.
