Playing golf can deliver physical and mental health improvements, with players of all ages able to benefit. Home to more than 70 courses, the Costa del Sol is the ideal place to play. With a selection of new properties available, it’s also an excellent choice for those looking to fully experience the benefits of living on a golf course.

“Golf can keep you fit and healthy, so what better way to embrace the advantages than by purchasing a home on a golf course? Being surrounded by nature, with the opportunity to head out onto the fairways whenever you’re in the mood, can deliver a wonderful lifestyle for family members of all ages.”

Marc Pritchard, Sales and Marketing Director, Taylor Wimpey España

According to Better Health, an average round of golf involves walking between five and seven kilometres. Doing so three to five times per week provides an optimal amount of endurance exercise, which is key to heart health. Bonus calorie burning for those who carry their clubs.

Golf can be good for mental wellbeing, as well. The sociable nature of the game means it supports players to maintain and grow their friendships, while spending time in greenery comes with its own rewards. Lincoln Larson and Aaron Hipp, associate professors of parks, recreation and tourism management at NC State University, explain:

“People who spend more time in nature enjoy enhanced cognitive functioning and attention and reduced stress. They are also less likely to display anxiety disorders and depression and more likely to report high levels of happiness and well-being.”

Larson and Hipp also observe that spending time in nature can enhance positive youth development, thus providing benefits for younger family members living on golf courses, as well as older golfers.

In the Costa del Sol, leading Spanish home builder Taylor Wimpey España is providing a selection of frontline golf properties at the prestigious La Cala Golf Resort, nestled between the sea and the mountains between Marbella and Fuengirola. From key-ready homes available for immediate use to off-plan apartments, duplexes, penthouses and townhouses, the builder is providing homes to suit all family sizes and budgets.

“Whether buyers are looking for a permanent residence or a holiday home to enjoy with family and friends, we have the ideal properties at La Cala. All are set in the wonderful greenery of the resort, with generously sized outdoor spaces and huge windows that fill the homes with light. It’s a very serene and tranquil location.”

Priced at €588,000 plus VAT, the spacious three-storey, three-bedroom property comes with a large solarium measuring over 50 m2 and a pretty garden.

Also located in a frontline position by the Europa course, the townhouses at Belaria – like those at Natura – come with a lovely communal pool and gardens.

Buyers seeking apartments, duplexes and penthouses will find everything they need at Solana Village East and Solana Village South, so-named due to the orientation of the homes.
