‘We want to embark ourselves into the latest of trends in tourism’
Firmly says Juan Maria López Álvarez, President of the (GCACL), constituted last year with the main objective to
promote the largest region in Europe as a tourist destination with top quality golf and with a valuable proposal that
is far from the traditional one offered around the coast.
The Association, that already groups ten of the thirteen 18 holes golf courses in the region, defends the capacity
that Castilla y Leon has to attract a national and international golf tourism that looks for not only good facilities,
cities full of history and culture, spots and singular landscapes and first level gastronomy based in the richness of its
‘For many years, the golf courses in Castilla y Leon have been hosting important national and international
amateur and professional tournaments, this says a lot of the quality of our facilities , continues saying the President
of the ( GCACL). Because of this, we are convinced that our offer, very different to the sun and beach golf one,
is perfectly valid and attractive and it will also contribute to de-seasonalise tourism in the region and establish Castilla y Leon
between the usual golf destinations of golf in our country’
To reach this, the Association is working in ambitious project that will include as a plan a Golf Circuit that will allow golfers
to tour the region through the (GCACL) by using golf+Hotel+experiences packages.
‘Castilla y Leon is a historic region, that has to be toured with calm, experiment and live... And we believe that doing it through
the golf courses is an original way to create a destination. We can rely on the cooperation with the institutions to be able to be present
in all the tourism fairs and in the panflets of the main tour operators’ concludes Mr López Álvarez.
