The first references to golf come from Scotland,during the 15th century and were the 18 measures of whiskey which determinedthe number of holes of the golf course.  It was during the 17th century when the sport settled in England where the first clubs were created,although it was not until the 19th century, precisely in 1891, when the firstclub in Spainwas created. 

Nowadays, golf has acquired an important increase in ourcountry and the passion for this sport has reached to our region. 

The rise of amateur and professional golf players in Castile and Leonhas caused a raise in the number of courses and resorts revolving around it,being the number of golf courses in Castileand Leonmore than 25 of them.
