At the start of the year, we told you about the new project launched by the Costa del Sol Tourism Board where they offer visitors a unique perspective of our beautiful destination through the use of 360º images and videos.
Now, after the success of this first phase of this ambitious project, they have just launched their new Golf 360º Tool which will offer a new and unique way to view the coast’s ample selection of golf courses which lovers of the sport can enjoy whilst holidaying on our ‘Costa del Golf’ 🙂
With a total of 74 magnificent golf courses – almost 70% of all the courses in Andalucia – the ‘Costa del Golf’ encompasses all the Costa del Sol and the areas of Sotogrande, San Roque and Alcaidesa in the province of Cadiz. This truly impressive figure makes it Continental Europe’s destination with the most number of golf courses.
The new Golf 360º tool will give players a bird’s-eye view of the 74 courses, giving the sensation of flying over the courses and enjoying the stunning views. This new ‘view’ of the coast’s golf courses gives a true idea of their size and layout as well as allowing golfers to position them geographically and helping them choose where they want to play.
As you can see in the images, the Golf 360º website allows you to choose the area and course you’d like to see through the menu at the top of the page. Clicking on the information button on the bottom right of the screen allows you to access interesting details and information about the course you are viewing. You’ll be able to see…
- The course’s designer
- The year it was built
- Number of holes
- Whether it has a driving range or golf academy
- The length of the course
- Par for the course
- Telephone number
- Website address
If you want more information, clicking on the ‘+ info www’ icon in the centre of the screen will take you to a dedicated page about the course with even more detailed information (see image below).
If you love your golf, you’ve now got a nifty little tool to help you choose the Costa del Sol’s golf course which best meets your needs.
