Golf in HuelvaGolfing in Huelva is a whole other sport

Huelva is a pioneer city in Spain when it comes to golf; people have been playing here since 1916. Much time has passed since the English miners working in the Rio Tinto mines in Huelva founded the first golf course in the entire peninsula.

The opportunity to practice this exciting sport during any time of the year and in such a unique setting has allowed golf to increase its popularity with extraordinary rapidity in Huelva.

Almost a hundred years later, nine golf courses await you in Huelva, offering a wide variety of attractive settings for practicing this sport. You can play golf in the Sierra de Huelva, either on the coast, on links courses endowed with natural sand dunes, or in the midst of endless greenery, where pines are the stars of the game.

Stepping on acres of carefully-tended grass is a special treat; and can only be matched by the relaxing barefoot walks that locals take during low tide on Huelva´s many beaches, which stretch infinitely ahead of you. 

Many tourists and fans of the sport can be seen walking around with a golf club to practice their bunker shots, which is the most feared shot for many players.

The low tide makes way for a sandy field whose boundaries are determined only by the dunes and the sea, an extraordinary natural area that is ideal for holding major beach golf tournaments.

Playing golf in Huelva is a completely different experience; its natural environment, its climate, its people, its rich cuisine and its nine unique courses, which are bathed in Spanish light, make this an unforgettable experience for the senses.

Come play golf in Huelva and enjoy an exciting sport while basking in the sun and enjoying the soft breeze of our spectacular beaches.

Corta Atalaya Golf

Located at the foot of Sierra de Aracena and Picos de Aroche, Corta Atalaya Golf Club, the oldest club of the Iberian Peninsula, traces its origins to the late nineteenth century when British workers employed by the mining company Rio Tinto founded it under the name of North Lode Golf Club.

It was relocated to a new settlement in 1992, a mining town that was later repopulated, from which you can see the cut in the mountain from which it gets its present appellation. Nearby is a picturesque English neighbourhood with Victorian-style buildings that are well-worth a tour.
One of the biggest highlights of the club is the chromatic light show offered by the sierra, with its reddish brown and ochre tones.

This is a 9-hole (3 par -3, 5 par -4 y 1 par -5) course, about half of which is pretty flat, though two of its paths have some pretty impressive slopes. The uniqueness of this field lies in its paths, which are dirt paths.
