The 2009 Volvo World MatchPlay Golf Championship is coming to Estepona on the Costa del Sol between October 29th and November 1st this year. This is fantastic news for the local Costa del Sol community and especially for our holiday rental property owners with conveniently-located properties, as demand for accommodation during the tournament is expected to be high…
Considered one of the most prestigious competitions on the professional golfing calendar, the tournament will take place at Finca Cortesin Golf Course near Estepona.
This year’s revamped format will pit 16 of the top golfers from every continent – including such illustrious names as Tiger Woods, Ernie Els, Michael Campbell and Phil Mickelson – against each other to win prize money of over three million Euros.
The fact that such a prestigious golfing event has moved to the Costa del Sol from its traditional home of Wentworth in England speaks volumes for the Coast as a golfing destination. But then, the Coast is a true golfers’ paradise, catering for players of all standards, with around 50 quality courses ranging from simple 9-hole courses to Europe’s most challenging; the legendary Valderrama and new Finca Courtesin.
With great weather almost guaranteed throughout the golf season, not to mention a whole host of other amenities and entertainment on offer – such as the fabulous beaches, great sports and beach clubs, adventurous things to do, and interesting places to visit, world-class shopping, an abundance of restaurants and the exciting night life.
Many believe that the fact the World MatchPlay Championships has found its new home on the Coast can only further enhance the Coast’s reputation as the ideal place to choose for a relaxing golfing break.
This is great news for the local community and especially for our holiday rental property owners with conveniently-located properties, as demand for accommodation during the tournament is expected to be high.
To capitalise on this, we’ve embarked on a major e-marketing campaign targeting our direct travel clients, European travel industry partners and UK golf clubs to launch our new ‘Fairway Collection’ of over 30 quality-assured self-catering golf holiday rental apartments and villas located on or within a 5 minute walk of a Costa golf course, many of which are within short walking distance of the Championships.
Discounts to encourage early rental bookings during the tournament mean some of our rental accommodation is now available from just €13.50 per person, per night during the tournament, for group bookings.
What’s more, we’ve teamed up with local golf booking specialists, Golf Service, to offer holiday rental clients substantial green fee discounts at every single course on the Coast, as well as pre-booked tee times via our website.
All positive news in these harsh times!
All for now, hasta luego!
