What makes a golf holiday to Huelva so special?

The historic city of Huelva is not on every golfer’s radar, but with a selection of great resorts and courses in the vicinity, it can be regarded as one of Europe’s most up and coming golfing destinations.

The North and South Courses at Precise Resort El Rompido are perfect examples of resort golf on Spain’s southern coast.
