Just as the Olympic success of Team GB has inspired a generation to take up a new sport, or at least renew their acquaintance with an old favourite, so has the European Ryder Cup victory provided a boost to the golfing community. More and more people are once again dusting off their clubs and heading onto the course. The wonderful English weather has put a little bit of a dampener on matters as we head into winter, so those same golfers are choosing to head off to find some warmth and sun in which to enjoy their game.

The Costa del Sol is a popular destination for golfers seeking the sun and it's not hard to see why. The wealth of courses on offer is just incredible and there is a course to suit all levels. With over 70 courses to choose from in this area of Spain alone, it truly is a golfer's paradise. Thehotels in the area offer plenty in the way of choice too, with everything from budget accommodation, to five star luxury. Golf widows/widowers can enjoy the holiday as much as the golfer themselves, as there are plenty of sightseeing opportunities and interesting visitor attractions that are suitable for all the family.

Another area high the on the list of golfing holidays is the Algarve. The lush vegetation, the warm and temperate climate and the stunning views mean that this area is a favourite with families too. The golfer in the group can enjoy some of the most spectacular views available on any course, whilst the rest of the family can enjoy the shopping, the nightlife and the host of beautiful beaches. Albufeira is the place to stay for easy access to both the courses and the rest that the Algarve has to offer.

An up and coming golfing destination is Cyprus. Although those in the know have been heading here to tee off for years, it is becoming more popular with new converts to the game. Although relatively small, the island is host to ten courses, including a championship 18 hole course. Golfers should take note that this is the legendary birthplace of the Greek Goddess of love, Aphrodite, so your other half might not be too impressed if you spend every spare moment on the course when you could be enjoying a bit of romance.
