The golf offer extends throughout the entire Almeria territory, offering a significant number of properly conditioned golf courses, to provide the amateur or professional with a wonderful experience.
One of the wonders that have made Almeria among the favourite golf tourist destinations in Spain is that it is the province with the world record for the highest number of sunny days.

Because many of the golf courses have been built on valleys and steep slopes, the greens are articulated through numerous obstacles, which gives a particular beauty to the courses but also provides the player with the opportunity to embark on an interesting and challenging game. That is why the golf courses in the province of Almeria are particularly sought after by those players who want to practice and improve their swing, as well as by those who seek to develop new skills and abilities.
