Few visitors to southern Spain realise that this area was first visited and colonised by the British well over 100 years ago.

It was from the sporting interests and enthusiasm of these British pioneers that the oldest golf club in Spain, Bellavista (1916), and the oldest football club, Huelva FC, were established.

The legacy of this early development can still be seen at Bellavista Golf Course, which retains a traditional, British-style club atmosphere. Unlike the typical offerings in Spain, Bellavista is a true members club with undulating fairways that present a challenge to golfers of all levels.
