La Sella Open, a renowned women’s golf contest, has been named the best tournament of 2023 by the Ladies European Tour (LET). Held at Denia La Sella Golf Resort in Spain, this tournament has emerged as a standout competition in women’s golf, earning the most votes from over 400 professional players worldwide. With its commitment to equality and player comfort, La Sella Open has cemented its place in the global golf landscape, making it a popular destination for golfers looking for Spain golf holidays.

A few days ago, the general director of the LET, Alexandra Armas, presented the award to Carlos García, director of La Sella Golf, thanking the players for choosing him. García highlighted the motto of the tournament, “A tournament for them”, highlighting the meaning of this recognition by the players themselves.

The Denia Marriott Resort has the 27-hole La Sella Golf Course, designed by José María Olazábal, and the most advanced golf learning centre in Costa Blanca. The course is very demanding and entertaining, with numerous water obstacles and privileged views of the Montgó Natural Park and the Mediterranean.

Spain golf – el Bosque Golf Course revolutionary method for beginners in twelve sessions

El Bosque Golf & Country Club

El Bosque Golf Course

El Bosque Golf Club has once again launched its ambitious method that allows anyone to play golf in just twelve sessions. This golf course, which reopened its facilities on March 1st after closed for more than a month due to sanitary restrictions, has implemented this new system to bring the world of golf closer to the whole of society.

Play golf in twelve sessions (ninety minutes per session) is an eminently practical and progressive method based on the experience of the teachers at the El Bosque Golf Course. This revolutionary way to start in the world of golf is endorsed by the PGA and is mainly focused on learning through the player’s experience.

While traditional golf course training often begins with great details about swing and placement, it is surprising how in the proper environment the new golfers tend to be able to figure this out on their own through the experience, instinct and insights of teachers and enter in the world of golf from the first moment.

In the first session, they will go directly to the golf course and will be able to feel how spectacular it is to step on the fairways, greens, bunkers, etc.

For Tee Times Golf Agency this practical, simple and pleasant method demystifies the idea that the initiation of golf practice is a time-consuming process that requires great expertise, making the first contact with this outdoor sport much more attractive and also this way, El Bosque Golf Course continues to fulfil Sir Robert Trent Jones’ goal of creating a golf course for all types of players.
Focused on this idea, El Bosque Golf course prices are also for a demanding variety of players, from sunset, twilight, 18 individual holes or in multiple round packages to make the golf experience on this course a unique and unforgettable adventure to repeat right away.
As an unforgettable golf round has to be accompanied by an equally unforgettable stay, we suggest the cosy and charming hotels, The Westin Valencia *****, Melia Plaza **** or Parador de El Saler ****, with their 3, 5 and 7 nights accommodation packages combined with 2, 3 or 5 golf rounds at the nearby golf courses, Escorpion Golf Course, Foressos Golf Course and El Saler Parador Golf Course, for an unimaginable golf break.
