Isla Canela Old wants energy independence

Isla Canela Golf’s photovoltaic enclosure on the Isla Canela Old course has been recently installed and turned on. Located in the out rough area of the golf course, the installation has a total surface area of around 1500 square metres and has been used as part of a larger effort to reduce the irrigated area and make better use of water.

The Isla Canela Golf Hotel, the clubhouse, and the golf course’s irrigation water pumping system will all be able to utilise electricity from the solar array, which includes a compensation mechanism for energy that is not self-consumed.

The owners of Isla Canela Golf are hoping to further advance energy transition initiatives and implement steps from its Strategic Plan for Social and Environmental Sustainability in accordance with the sustainable development goals set forth by the United Nations.

Isla Canela may now reduce its CO2 output thanks to this new installation. The owners have been calculating the company’s carbon impact since 2019, and this action will help them get closer to their decarbonization target.

Isla Canela is located in a truly unique place on the Costa de la Luz region, near Huelva, right next to the border with Portugal, and it is one of the most popular golf holiday destinations in the region.

The Solheim Cup aims to be more sustainable

To enhance its goal of being an environmentally friendly event, the Solheim Cup 2023, a women’s golf competition pitting Europe against the United States from September 18 to 24 at Finca Cortesin golf course, in Malaga, has adopted a new set of sustainability standards. Being hosted on the Costa del Sol, the Solheim Cup 2023 became involved with the “Costa del Sol Zero Footprint” initiative.

Costa del Sol is now the first tourist destination in the world to measure and compensate for the carbon footprint of every visitor, regardless of the nature of their journey. Your golf holidays in Costa del Sol will be, from now on, more sustainable than ever.

As Francisco Salado, president of both institutions, says: “The Costa del Sol is once again a pioneer and becomes a benchmark with a project that Turismo Costa del Sol has been working on for some time and which is another example of the clear commitment that both the Malaga Provincial Council and Turismo Costa del Sol make for the sustainability of this popular golf holiday destination”.

“As an added bonus, sustainability is one of the most telling metrics of a place’s overall appeal, popularity, and reputation. The Costa del Sol, however, is well aware that it must play in that league or risk being left behind. Because we believe that responsible tourist development must serve as the central tenet of the Costa del Sol’s future success”, he continues.

Tourists who visit the Costa del Sol, whether to play in the region’s stunning golf courses or not, can participate in the initiative by visiting the project website, entering the details of their trip, and getting the result of their carbon footprint in kilogrammes of CO2 and its equivalent in trees planted.

Throughout collaboration with another initiative, the “Málaga Viva”, over 340.000 trees have been planted in the province and land banks are being established to reforest and offset the carbon impact.

The third edition of the Aware Golf Strategy returns to Barceló Montecastillo Resort

The Martin Cummins Golf Performance Academy by Castellana Golf is bringing back its ‘Aware Golf Strategy’ courses to the Barceló Montecastillo Golf and Sport Resort, in the Costa de la Luz, near Cádiz.

On March 2, 3, and 4, participants in this innovative golf training course will have access to the golf course, the practice course, the training rooms, and even the hotel gym, as well as a unique approach to training and playing style that helps the amateur player decrease his or her handicap without changing his or her technique or swing.

Besides the actual instruction days, the training course also provides three green fees, unlimited balls at the driving range, hotel accommodations for two nights (breakfast and dinner included both nights), and transportation to and from the golf course.

“We are really glad to cooperate with the Martin Cummins Golf Performance Academy by offering these strategic courses throughout the year. The diversity of our facilities, with a golf course designed by Nicklaus, a top-class driving range, two short-game areas, a gym and numerous meeting rooms, allow us to host this type of event with a total guarantee of success”, says Guillermo Pérez Gutiérrez, Golf Manager of the Barceló Montecastillo Golf and Sport Resort.

Half an hour from the beach and just ten minutes from the airport, the newly refurbished Barceló Montecastillo Golf and Sport Resort is nestled between a wonderful natural environment and a castle dating back to the 19th century.

Nearly 40 private villas and more than 120 rooms are available at this resort. Each accommodation follows a new B-Room concept with a contemporary design, while yet maintaining the hotel’s signature classic and exquisite aesthetic.

As a Jack Nicklaus design from 1992, the Montecastillo golf course is a lengthy and challenging test of golfing skill.
