A NEW search engine has been released, specifically aimed at providing information on golfing holidays.

The website – named Golfboo – allows golfers to search different courses around the world, comparing prices, facilities and user ratings.

The site lists 50 courses in the Malaga area, giving them an overall rating of 8.1.

At number 22 worldwide, the highest ranked course in Spain is Finca Cortesin Golf Club, near Casares, which is given a rating of 9.1.

“The concept behind Golfboo is to enable golfers to access great information relating to their golf experience,” said Fabio Peral, site co-founder. “Society has become accustomed to using search engines for a variety of day to day necessities and we believe the golf industry is ready for a search engine of its own!”
