In the western Huelva Province, there are half a dozen golf courses alone - with three more due to open this year and another four in the pipeline.
According to the Golf Federation of Andalucia, it's the fastest growing golf tourist destination in the region.
Costa de la Luz, the 'undiscovered costa', has been growing steadily and tastefully into what is now a well-rounded second home and tourist hotspot. Golf course, residential property and hotels have all grown, along with interest in the area.
At the ambitious Costa Esuri resort, the largest golf property development in Spain, after just 2 years, more than 1,000 homes are now ready for occupation and the two championship standard 18-hole golf courses are starting to take shape.
The majority of development infrastructure is now in place, from roads to children's play areas, and the developers are now investing heavily in landscaping, planting hundreds of trees and plants around the site.
Western Costa de la Luz has catapulted from a seasonal tourist spot to a year-round resort full of interest and action, suitable for permanent or semi-permanent living - without having tarnished its natural beauty.
