A Good Sign for Golf

February 26th, 2016

News of FBD Property & Leisure’s €40m joint venture with Taylor Wimpey plc at La Cala Resort is surely a sign that confidence is returning to this sector. Work on the new development, called ‘Horizon Golf’, begins immediately with the first units to be handed over in 2017.

There are reports of ‘significant momentum building’ in the Spanish hotel and residential property sectors. The planning approval is for a further 1,045 units – clearly a project with long-term future prospects.
