Tee off on the Costa Brava

SPAIN’S Costa Brava region reports #golf visitors to the area have increased to more than 103,000 over the past two years. In figures collated by the #CostaBrava Tourism Board, they show a 67% growth in European golfers to the region between 2013 and 2015, driven by visitors from France, Germany, the UK, and the Netherlands.

Ramon Ramos, director of the Costa Brava Girona Tourist Board, said: ‘It has been very encouraging to see such an upswing in the number of golf visitors to the region – and in particular, the increase of Catalan golfers visiting Costa Brava. Our data shows this group grew the most over the past two years, quadrupling to more than 26,000. Coupled with new flight routes to Girona-Costa Brava airport announced by Jet2, Transavia, and Ryanair for 2016 and 2017, we remain confident this momentum will continue and look forward to welcoming new – and returning – golf visitors to one of Europe's most distinct and culturally-rich golf destinations.’

UK price comparison site TravelSupermarket identifies the Costa Brava as the fastest-growing short-haul destination for this season, based on a surge in internet searches received during the first quarter of 2016, compared to the first three months of 2015.
