Since 1985, golf has grown exponentially in Spain. Today it is the leading European destination for golf tourism, owing to the excellent conditions in the country for the practice of this sport. The diversity of its golf courses, the quality of accommodation, the excellent transport conditions and the good weather at all times of the year are our strong points.
All these favorable conditions that can be found in Spain attract not only tourists, but also make golf attractive for the youngsters in the country.
Spain has been the birthplace of players which are now legendary in golf, such as the great Severiano Ballesteros, the top golfer in our country that was initially a golf player before later beginning to design golf camps. Another Spanish player that formed a part of golfing history even before retiring is Jose María Olazábal, a great professional and sportsman that received the Prince of Asturias Award for Sports in October 2013. We currently continue to have promising youngsters that are making their mark and earning a place in the world of professional golf such asBeatriz Recari, Azahara Muñoz and Carlota Ciganda.
If golf is your child’s favorite pastime, or if they take it very seriously and would like to become a professional player one day, we have the perfect plan for their summer: a summer camp in Spain.
What do the golf camps consist of?
They consist of spending a few weeks playing and practicing golf whilst the youngsters improve their techniques and skills with professional coaches. They will also have a great time practicing other types of leisure activities typical of camps, in which they will make friends and enjoy their school holidays. Some camps also offer the opportunity to take English classes so that as well as playing golf and improving their level, they can improve their linguistic abilities.
What golf camps do we offer in Spain?
In Spain, we offer various camps in different destinations:
When do the camps take place?
Although Spain has brilliant weather conditions which allow for the practice of golf throughout the entire year, the camps take place during the summer, coinciding with the young golfers’ school holidays.
What level is necessary to be able to attend the camps?
The camps have programs which are adapted to all levels of golf; therefore it does not matter whether your child is still learning or if they already have an advanced level. You should look for a program with the appropriate number of hours of training to adapt to the needs and objectives of your child.
What else do they learn in these camps?
As well as golf and English, the children learn a variety of other things. Above all, they will learn to live in a multicultural environment full of different cultures and traditions. They will learn qualities such as comradeship, tolerance and respect. The coaches are in charge of instilling them with a sporting spirit of effort, discipline and sportsmanship.
