Play some of Spain’s best kept golfing secrets
The historic city of Huelva has remained an enigma for many years with the city only now coming to the forefront of golfer’s minds as a place to play some great golf.
How it has remained hidden for so long is unclear, however, what can be said is the golf courses of Huelva are truly magnificent examples of how far golf has come in Spain, with Huelva home to some great courses.
El Rompido South Course is an example of one of Huelva’s top courses. The course is an interesting design which incorporates typical parkland features of trees and long grass, with not so typical features like marshland, although golfers can certainly rely on El Rompido’s South Course to give them a stern test of their golfing ability.
La Monacilla Golf Club is another fantastic Huelva-based golf course, designed by José María Olazábal it is set in a dense pine forest, with large fairways and greens which present a good level of challenge for golfers of all abilities.
