Spain Golf - The renovation of the 10th hole of the Real Golf de Pedreña golf course, a work of art... literally

Posted on 20 Jan 2022

Real Golf de Pedreña golf course

In 2020, golf course architecture studio David Williams Golf Design celebrated its thirtieth anniversary in 2020 and, to mark the occasion, commissioned a series of watercolours of holes created during that time. The commission went to Welsh artist Arwyn Davies, who incidentally had worked for the studio years before.

One of the paintings was of the 10th hole of the Real Golf Course de Pedreña, in Pedreña, Cantabria redesigned by Williams in 2014. Unfortunately, due to Covid's travel restrictions, the painting could not be delivered during the anniversary year, so David took the opportunity during a recent visit to the site to inspect the autumn 2021 renovation programme to present the painting to club manager Pedro Navedo.

The hole was chosen to be painted to represent the work done by Williams over the last ten years at the club, following his preparation of a detailed master plan and a hole-by-hole audit produced in 2010.

"We were originally commissioned to produce the 'master plan' for the historic golf course, designed by the great Harry Colt and built in 1928, over ten years ago and since then we have worked virtually every year, usually in the autumn, to re-design and rebuild virtually every feature of the holes (greens, tees, bunker, drainage and irrigation), leading to all features being transformed, continuing with holes 2 and 4 this autumn," explains David Williams.

"With this continued and enduring involvement, Pedreña Golf Course was the obvious project used to illustrate our renovation and restoration activities that we have carried out on over a hundred courses across the UK and Europe. However, the decision of which hole on the course to illustrate was relatively simple as the renovation of holes at Pedreña generally keeps the greens and tees in the same locations as before, although many of the bunkers have been re-designed and relocated. However, the par 3 tenth hole was an exception, with a completely new green location.

"When Colt originally built the golf course in the late 1920s, the 9th and 11th holes, which run side by side but in opposite directions, were par 4 holes, with the magnificent par 3 hole played on land from the back of the green to the 11th tee. However, in the 1970s, the club wanted to extend the golf course and bought land beyond the 10th hole to lengthen the par 5 9th and 11th holes with a new green on the 9th hole and a new tee complex on the 11th hole. Consequently, the original 10th green, magnificently designed by Colt, was totally abandoned although it was left in the vacant area in front of the 11th tee, still a testament to Colt's design, but now unplayed. It was replaced by a new long uphill par 3 to a small and difficult green and, unsurprisingly, unpopular with most members and visitors," Williams continues.

"When I drew up the 'master plan' in 2010, it was clear that this problem needed to be addressed and I was determined to restore Colt's magnificent green complex. However, it was also clear that it could not be re-opened, given its position directly opposite the 11th tee. A careful examination of the 'new ground' produced an area of land very similar in size and contours to the land on which Colt had created his 1928 design, so we proposed to recreate that original complex in the new location, some hundred yards away from its original location," he continues.

Spain Golf - Blanca Fernandez and Rocio Tejedo set up their duel at the Andalusia Women's Cup in El Paraiso

Posted on 19 Jan 2022

El Paraiso Golf Course

Both the player from Madrid, and the player from Castellon face the final day of the tournament in the top section after overtaking Paula Martín at the top of the rankings.

Paula Martín, leader at the start of the third day of the Andalucía Women's 2022 Cup, has been overtaken by Blanca Fernández and Rocío Tejedo with extraordinary rounds at El Paraíso Golf Club (Málaga), perfect for a good golf holiday or golf break and that have served to blow up the classification. The Madrilenian will start the final round in the lead.

A city in southern Spain, has a beach and is one of the most important tourist destinations in Spain, Europe and the Mediterranean Sea.

It is a place of wide tree-lined avenues with palm trees, lively nightlife, important museums and excellent seafood and fish restaurants in general.

A card of 65 strokes (-6) - with five birdies and an eagle along the way - has taken Blanca Fernández to the lead with a cumulative score of -11 which is by no means a guarantee of the title, as Rocío Tejedo is threatening with -10. The Spaniard, with 66 strokes (-5), closed the day without a single fault.

The new scenario leaves Blanca Fernández and Rocío Tejedo as the main and clear candidates for victory, as the next classified are on -7. We are talking about the first two leaders of the event: Julia Lopez (69 strokes on the third day) and Paula Martin (par). The Madrilenian did not find the success with the putt that she had in the second round.

At the end of the third day, this Andalusia Cup, valid for World Ranking and National Ranking U18 2022, has experienced the expected cut, overcome by 51 golfers.

Spain Golf - The Grand Final of the Rolex Challenge Tour will return to Alcanada Golf Course in November

Posted on 11 Jan 2022

Alcanada Golf Course

The Rolex Challenge Tour Grand Final backed by The R&A will return to Alcanada Golf Course, located in Majorca in 2022, having previously held the event in 2019, which saw Italy's Francesco Laporta win the Rolex Grand Final and the Road to Mallorca Rankings double.

The final event of this year's 'Road to Mallorca' programme will take place from 3-6 November 2022 with players looking to secure one of the coveted twenty DP World Tour cards for 2023.

"We are absolutely delighted to be hosting the Rolex Challenge Tour Grand Final with the support of The R&A again in 2022. It was a great success the first time it was here in 2019, and we are looking forward to having all the players and fans here once again," indicates Kristoff Both, Director of Golf at Alcanada Golf Course.

"The course has looked brilliant all year and we know it will be the same in November 2022, so we can see the best possible golf from these talented players. We thank the European Challenge Tour for the honour of hosting such an event again," adds Both.

Historically, the European Challenge Tour has produced a host of golfing stars, including 2018 Ryder Cup Captain Thomas Bjørn, 2016 Open Champion Henrik Stenson and two-time Ryder Cup player Tommy Fleetwood.

Spain Golf - The number of federated golfers in Spain will increase by just over thirteen thousand players in 2021

Posted on 06 Jan 2022

La Reserva at Sotogrande

Spanish golf ended the year 2021 with 284,954 members, 283,363 of them amateurs and 1,591 professionals, according to data from the official count carried out on 31 December.

This figure represents an absolute increase of 13,166 licences over the past year, which in percentage terms is 4.8% more than at the beginning of the year. Both absolute and percentage figures represent a positive turnaround in a particularly difficult period due to the coronavirus health crisis.

In this very special context, the idiosyncrasy of golf - a healthy sport, practised outdoors, safe, which naturally establishes safety distances - and the establishment of a protocol - which made it possible to re-establish the practice of this sport from the outset - have attracted many people, who find golf to be a healthy activity from both a physical and psychological point of view.

This increase in the number of golf licences is the third consecutive year of growth, thus breaking a long streak of nine consecutive years of decline experienced in the period between 2010 and 2018, coinciding with much of the prolonged economic crisis and social changes that have conditioned for many years the development of very diverse sectors of Spanish society.

Special mention should be made of the significant increase of more than thirteen thousand licences compared to the growth experienced in 2019 and 2020 -three hundred licences more in 2019; three hundred and eighteen licences more in 2020-, data that are in any case very valuable if we take into account the effect on the activity generated by the pandemic in sectors linked to sport, leisure and tourism both nationally and internationally.

In absolute terms, Madrid, with 87,685 members, accounted for 30.8% of the total number of licences, followed by Andalusia, with 48,207, and Catalonia, with 28,396, accounting for 16.9% and 9.9% of the total number of members, respectively.

The region with the highest number of licences during the 2021 financial year was Madrid, with 4,725 members (5.7% more), followed by Andalusia (2. 602 members, up 5.7%), Valencia (733 members, up 3.8%), Castilla y León (723 members, up 5.6%), Catalonia (679 members, up 2.4%), Galicia (616 members, up 5.7%) and the Basque Country (608 members, up 3.6%), where the promotional campaigns have been particularly effective.

In percentage terms, it is worth highlighting those Autonomous Communities that have exceeded the average growth of 4.8% experienced at national level. This is the case, firstly, of the Balearic Islands and Extremadura, both of which have increased their number of licences by 7.2%.

Murcia, with 6.5%, is also in this leading group, while Madrid, Andalusia and Galicia increased their number of members by 5.7%. Castilla y León (5.6%) and the Canary Islands (5.3%) also grew above average.

Posted on 03 Jan 2022

Terramar Golf Course

The 2022 Ladies European Tour season will feature the largest number of tournaments and prize money in the circuit's more than four-decade history. Thanks to the support of new long-term partners, LET players will compete for a minimum of almost twenty-five million euros in thirty events in 2022. The total annual purse has increased by almost five million euros in 2021 and offers thirteen million euros more than in 2019.

"Building on a strong 2021 season, which featured twenty-three tournaments, 2022 will be a record year for the LET with the largest number of events and total purse in history. We will be introducing new events in Asia and South Africa and returning to several territories in Europe and other locations so it looks very exciting for our players," said Alexandra Armas, CEO of the Ladies European Tour.

"We have never had such incredible support from industry partners and corporations who see the value of investing in the LET. Our players continue to set new standards of performance. For example, this year's winner of the 'Race to Costa del Sol', Atthaya Thitikul, reached eighteenth in the Rolex Women's World Golf Rankings, an amazing achievement that shows what is possible when playing on the LET. Europe won the Solheim Cup in Toledo, Ohio, winning for the second time in the United States. We are grateful to all our partners as we move into the third year of our successful joint venture partnership with the LPGA," added Armas.

The 2022 season will begin with the return of the Magical Kenya Ladies Open in February, followed by the Aramco Team Series - Asia. The Joburg Ladies Open will debut in the spring, joining the Investec South African Women's Open, which will move to Steenberg Golf Course in Cape Town as part of a fortnight in South Africa. The LET will then return to Australia for a two-week tour with the Australian Ladies Classic Bonville and the Women's New South Wales Open at Coolangatta & Tweed Heads Golf Course.

Europe will host nineteen tournaments from May to September, with the return of the Madrid Ladies Open, the Mithra Belgian Open and the Women's Irish Open. Highlights will include the Scandinavian Mixed presented by Henrik and Annika at Halmstad Golf Course, the Aramco Team Series - London and the Aramco Team Series - Sotogrande.

The mid-summer European tour will feature two major championships, starting with the Amundi Evian Championship in France in July. The first week of August, a fortnight later, will bring the much-anticipated AIG Women's Open, to be played at Muirfield in Scotland for the first time, raising over six million euros.

The Trust Golf Women's Scottish Open, played during the week between majors, will offer a hefty prize money of two million dollars, up from five hundred thousand dollars in 2021.

The ISPS Handa World Invitational presented by Modest! Golf Management, played after the AIG Women's Open, will be one of the most innovative events in world golf. Two tournaments, featuring men and women, are played on the same courses at the same time for two equal prize pools of fifteen million dollars.

In September, the Tour will visit two venues for the first time, Ålands Golf Course for the Åland 100 Ladies Open and Barrière Golf Course in Deauville for the Lacoste Ladies Open de France, as well as returning to Golf Course Terramar for a new edition of the Estrella Damm Ladies Open Presented By Catalunya.

For the final quarter of the season, the LET returns to the United States, India, Dubai and Saudi Arabia for the Aramco Team Series - New York, Hero Women's Indian Open, Dubai Moonlight Classic, Aramco Saudi Ladies International and Aramco Team Series - Jeddah respectively.

The Andalucía Costa del Sol Open de España will once again host the season finale, and the six hundred and fifty thousand euro event will decide the season's Race to Costa del Sol, a famous destination for golf holidays and golf breaks, which returns for a third year after Thailand's Atthaya Thitikul topped the standings in 2021. The 'Race to Costa del Sol' will offer a quarter of a million euro bonus between the top three finishers in the official rankings, with prizes of ceinto twenty-five thousand, seventy-five thousand and fifty thousand euros for the players finishing first, second and third respectively.

Spain Golf - Aravell Golf Club’s management team is entirely made up of women, an example for Syngenta's 'Growing Golf' initiative

Posted on 24 Dec 2021

Aravell Golf Club

With Beatriz Cantero as general manager since January 2020, Lucía Couso as deputy manager and Marta Pujades as head greenkeeper, Aravell golf course breaks a long-standing trend as all its managers are women. In the United States, for example, women represent less than 10% of all golf club directors, only 1.5% of superintendents and the ASGCA (American Society of Golf Course Architects) has only had four female members.

However, the evidence from global business studies is clear: companies with diverse leadership achieve greater profitability, something Syngenta is committed to through its 'Growing Golf' initiative.

"Aravell Golf Course will close 2021 with a 60% improvement in results compared to 2020 and 2019. We have doubled our revenue in 2021 compared to 2020, which is good news. We are on track to achieve the company's objectives for 2023 if we maintain this effort," says Beatriz Cantero, who added that before her arrival at the club there were only three female employees in the golf business area, most of them working in the catering sector.

Lucía Couso joined the club at the beginning of 2021, in the middle of the pandemic, having previously worked for three years as sports director at another golf club.

For her part, head greenkeeper Marta Pujades has been in the industry for almost twenty years and loves working with others and managing people.

"The golf industry was absolutely male-dominated when I started working in it and it still is, but a growing number of women greenkeepers are proving that it can be a career for women," she adds.

Current events are the order of the day, and Aravell Golf Course management team also have their say.

"The Aravell team has now started to push communication and that was something this company really needed, to have its own voice and to believe. Yes, we can make this golf club work. All three of us are learning to learn every day in our jobs," adds Cantero.

Spain Golf - The total prize fund of the European Challenge Tour's 'Road to Mallorca' will exceed eight million euros in prize money for the first time in 2022

Posted on 24 Dec 2021

Alcanada Golf Club

The European Challenge Tour today announced a record global schedule for the 2022 season that will see the total prize fund of the 'Road to Mallorca' surpass the eight million euro mark for the first time. The 2022 circuit will consist of thirty-one tournaments staged across three continents in eighteen countries.

It includes a return to Scotland for the first time in four years when the Farmfoods Scottish Challenge, supported by The R&A, takes place in the last week of May. The event, which will be staged in association with 1999 Open Champion Paul Lawrie, will be the first of nineteen tournaments in consecutive weeks where the 'Road to Mallorca' will traverse fifteen countries and finish in France from 29 September to 2 October.

The Challenge Tour also returns to China for the first time since 2019 with back-to-back events, including the Foshan Open, where players will have the last chance to earn their place in the season-ending Rolex Challenge Tour Grand Final supported by The R&A.

The 2022 'Road to Mallorca' Final will return to Alcanada Golf Club, the venue for the 2019 Grand Final, where the top forty-five players in the 'Road to Mallorca' Rankings will compete for one of twenty life-changing DP World Tour cards for the 2023 season. The top five graduates will also receive the John Jacobs Scholarship, announced last month as part of the DP World Tour's partnership for the European Tour Group's premier DP World Tour title.

The 2022 schedule includes seven events co-sanctioned with the Sunshine Tour, including an inaugural visit to Tanzania for the Mount Kilimanjaro Klassic at Kilimanjaro Golf & Wildlife Estate with Tanzania to become the 52nd country to host a Challenge Tour event.

"I am incredibly proud to reveal our schedule for the 2022 Road to Mallorca season, which boasts the largest prize total since the inception of the Challenge Tour in 1989. This expansive global calendar would not be possible without the incredible support of our promoters, national federations and tournament sponsors, so I would like to take this opportunity to thank them," said Jamie Hodges, Challenge Tour Director.

In 2021, nineteen former Challenge Tour players won on the European Tour, now called the DP World Tour, including nine first-time winners, while three finished in the top ten in the Race to Dubai Rankings. Garrick Higgo became the 500th former Challenge Tour player to win on what is now the DP World Tour, while Bernd Wiesberger became the 33rd Challenge Tour alumnus to play in the Ryder Cup.

The 2022 schedule includes seven events co-sanctioned with the Sunshine Tour, including an inaugural visit to Tanzania for the Mount Kilimanjaro Klassic at Kilimanjaro Golf & Wildlife Estate with Tanzania to become the 52nd country to host a Challenge Tour event.

Spain Golf - Oliva Nova reforms its 17th Hole and celebrates its classic Christmas Tournament next Saturday 11th December

Posted on 24 Dec 2021

Oliva Nova Golf Course

The golf course is in fantastic condition so the attendees are sure to have a great golf holiday and enjoy the prizes and raffle.

For the last few days work has been carried out at the Oliva Nova golf course by the construction company Garden&Golf to reform the 17th hole. The aim of this change is to make it a more technical hole and to focus the player on the left side of the fairway, especially from the yellow tee.

A bunker is also being built on the right side of the fairway about 180 metres from the new tee markers, and a line of trees and a net will be planted on the right side of the tee to the red tee, to give it the feel of a tube. The old yellow tee will become the white tee and will only be used for professional events.

All the works will be integrated with a new phase of concrete paths that this time starts on the right side of the green of the 15th hole, runs along the whole of the 16th hole and reaches the fairway of the 17th hole.

In addition, next Saturday 11th December the classic Christmas Tournament will take place to celebrate with all the clients a day of golf and a good atmosphere in the run up to the festive season, which is fast approaching. The golf course is in fantastic conditions so we are sure that the attendees will have a great day and enjoy the prizes and raffle. Tee times are 09:30. You can register via the following link.

Spain Golf - Have you played the new Guadiana Links golf course?

Posted on 21 Dec 2021

Valle Guadiana Links Golf Course

Just cross the Guadiana bridge and at the intersection turn left and 2km further on, you will find the Guadiana links golf course.
The Guadiana Links golf course was recently renovated, and we played yesterday for the first time, on a rainy day, which did not prevent first impressions from being positive. At the entrance, there is a nice parking lot. The club house is very functional. Next to it are two putting greens, where it is possible to pitch on one of them, the other being reserved only for putting. The driving range next to it works with chips for the ball machine, and although small, with a few bays available, it is very pleasant. The balls are hit on soft mats, and the distances and targets are well marked.
For those who knew the old layout, there has been a change in the front and back nine. I.e., the most inland area of the course is now the front nine, which starts with a par 5 dog leg on the right and has as its biggest obstacle a hose 100 meters from the green. Curiously, the 18th is also a par 5, and yesterday's headwind made it quite long.
The Guadiana Links is a technically very interesting golf course, and there are no equal holes, so that the challenges along the course are always different. The back nine, closer to the Guadiana River, is where the wind has a greater influence and where you can also feel the links.
The greens are wide and well-kept, hard but holding the ball well, and have an excellent ball roll. The rough is low, making it easy to find balls that miss the fairways which helps to maintain a good rhythm of play.
It was a good experience and very good value for money.
The club house has a cosy atmosphere and a terrace with the option of open or closed depending on the weather.
The new Guadiana Links has undoubtedly added value to the Costa de la Luz golf offer benefiting also from the excellent location, with several hotels less than 20 kilometres away.

Spain Golf - Huelva golf courses maintain positive forecasts after the activity data of the last quarter

Posted on 17 Dec 2021

El Rompido North Golf Course

The Huelva Golf Courses Association has highlighted the good performance of the last quarter of the year, as well as the fact that the forecasts remain positive for the beginning of 2022 despite the pandemic situation in some European countries.

"Despite everything, there is a lot of uncertainty due to the appearance of restrictions in issuing countries, although the tour operators continue to work to ensure that the season runs smoothly. The courses are still open as well as accommodation in Huelva, and the forecast for 2022 is good. We have not yet noticed any cancellations but, with the sixth wave active, if the numbers outside Spain do not improve we could drastically change this planning," explains Tino Cordero, president of the Huelva Golf Courses Association part of Costa de la Luz region, which includes Cadiz and Seville.

"We still don't know what might happen in the future but, for the moment, we are continuing to work at a good pace with tour operators from the different issuing markets. The months of October and November have worked normally and there have been no positive results among European golf tourists who have visited the province of Huelva," added Cordero.

It should be remembered that the 2021 summer season was a good one for the golf course sector in the province of Huelva, thanks largely to the arrival of the national golfer. In the same way, the courses were optimistic about the autumn season because it seemed that it was confirmed that almost all the markets were going to start sending players... and this forecast has been fulfilled.

"The idea this year was to keep the hotels open, especially the golf hotels, trying to stay open all year round and not close in December, although in the end not all the hotels have been able to maintain activity during the winter months," concludes Tino Cordero.

Spain Golf - Costa del Sol Tourism activates in November a calendar full of promotional activities for the golf segment

Posted on 03 Dec 2021

Los Naranjos Golf Course

After its participation in one of the most important golf trade fairs of the year, the IGTM, where Turismo Costa del Sol has been present from 18 to 21 October in Wales, the Costa del Sol faces the month of November with an intense calendar of promotional activities in the golf segment.

In fact, the entity is preparing its presence in the Andalucía Costa del Sol Open de España, a tournament that will take place from 25 to 28 November at Los Naranjos Golf Club in Marbella and will serve as the culmination of the Race to Costa del Sol, ranking of the Ladies European Tour.

In addition to being held at Los Naranjos Golf Club, an unrivalled setting that acts as a magnificent ambassador for the golf courses that this region has to offer, the Andalucía Costa del Sol Open de España has a spectacular list of participants including players such as Carlota Ciganda and Beatriz Recari, Spanish champions in the Solheim Cup, Fátima Fernández Cano and Luna Sobrón, players with an LPGA Tour card, and Ana Peláez, Noemí Jiménez and Laura Gómez, three wonderful examples of the success of the Malaga junior players in recent years.

In this culmination of the year will be present the seventy-two best golfers of the Race to Costa del Sol, the ranking of the Ladies European Tour sponsored by Turismo Costa del Sol, all of them forming a great international line-up that can be enjoyed live by those who access the tournament website and request their tickets.

The Andalucía Costa del Sol Open de España is the last event of the Ladies European Tour calendar, with the main sponsorship of Andalucía, Costa del Sol and Acosol, who together with the Marbella Town Hall, the Benahavís Town Hall, among others.

Taking advantage of this important golfing event, the organisation is organising a press trip with specialised journalists so that, as well as covering the event, they can get to know other tourist attractions in the province.

Costa del Sol Tourism will also support the upcoming 42nd Annual Greenkeepers Congress organised by the Spanish Greenkeepers Association, which will take place from the 22nd to the 24th of November at the Marbella Exhibition and Conference Centre.

A non-profit association which, among its activities, holds an annual congress for its members with the aim of promoting training, coexistence, commercial exchange and the sport of golf.

At the end of November, a fam trip will also be organised for pros and media from the Netherlands to showcase the excellence of the golf courses and complementary services on offer on the Costa del Sol. The group has a special focus on the women's golf segment, and will highlight the role played by our destination in this sector, including a visit to the Andalucía Costa del Sol Open de España held at Los Naranjos Golf Club.

The programme focuses on Mijas, Marbella and Sotogrande, and has the collaboration of several Forum Member companies, including golf courses and hotels, and aims to inspire Pros to organise groups of golfers in the destination, as well as to spread the word about the many attributes the destination offers for the female golfer.

Spain Golf - The outstanding development of the Andalucía Costa del Sol Open de España de golf reinforces the region as a sports tourism destination

Posted on 02 Dec 2021

Los Naranjos Golf Course

The Spanish golfer Carlota Ciganda won the Andalucía Costa del Sol Open de España golf tournament, held at the Los Naranjos Golf Club in Marbella, on Sunday. The success of the event in terms of attendance and international repercussions has consolidated Andalusia as a benchmark destination for sports tourism.

"This tournament has once again shown that Andalusia is the best destination for golf and for any other competition. The region should be congratulated for the positioning achieved through this event, for the quality of the players who have participated, the high number of spectators who have enjoyed this tournament and for the magnificent Andalusian weather that has been shown in the broadcasts," said Manuel Muñoz, Secretary General for Tourism of the Junta de Andalucía.

On the other hand, Muñoz stressed that the return of events such as this one, both in terms of promoting the image of the destination and the direct impact on the region as a result of holding it, shows that we must continue to promote the successful pairing of tourism and sport.

Muñoz, who was accompanied by the territorial delegate for Tourism in Malaga, Nuria Rodríguez, pointed out in this respect that the Junta's commitment to major sporting events "will contribute to Andalusia having increasingly better data in terms of the arrival and spending of travellers".

The Andalucía Costa del Sol Open de España Femenino, part of the Ladies European Tour, was the last tournament on the calendar of the European women's circuit and, therefore, the decisive event for the order of merit of the competition, with the winner being the Thai Atthaya Thitikul, third today.

Spain Golf - The charity Make-A-Wish Spain joins the Andalucía Costa del Sol Open de España 2021 and will be present at Los Naranjos Golf Club

Posted on 16 Nov 2021

Los Naranjos Golf Course

Make-A-Wish Spain will be the charity chosen by the organisation to promote the important social work carried out by the Andalucía Costa del Sol Open de España, which in its 2021 edition will be played at Los Naranjos Golf Club in Marbella. Make-A-Wish Spain has been helping families with children with serious illnesses to realise their dreams for more than twenty years as part of the comprehensive treatment of their illness, giving them the strength, joy and hope they need to keep fighting.

Since the organisation was founded in 1999, its more than four thousand beneficiaries have demonstrated that with enthusiasm, anything is possible. That is why it is essential to work on their illusions as a life treatment through positive projects full of strength and hope that promote values such as perseverance, effort, the desire to improve, respect and cooperation, values that are very present in golf.

Make-A-Wish will have its own stand at Los Naranjos Golf Club during the week of the tournament and visitors will be able to collaborate and participate by making donations and writing their wish on a Make-A-Wish star in exchange for a donation of two euros. With their contributions, the tournament and its attendees will contribute to making the dreams of children with serious illnesses come true, such as the great dream of Patricia, a little girl who, after many years struggling with a brain injury for which she recently underwent surgery, will celebrate her eighteenth birthday, and her new life, with friends and family during the week of the Andalucía Costa del Sol Open de España.

The tournament will be attended by two ambassadors of Make-A-Wish Spain: Marta Figueras-Dotti, president of the Ladies European Tour, and Gerard Pera, professional golfer who will delight everyone present with a spectacular long-drive exhibition. In addition, various initiatives will be launched to benefit the foundation. On the one hand, the Pro-Am guests will be able to duel against a professional golfer in a fun charity 'Beat the pro', and on the other hand, the #birdiesforwishes challenge will be launched among the players of this Andalucía Costa del Sol Open de España.

Spain Golf - Los Naranjos Golf Club, in perfect condition fifteen days before hosting the Andalucía Costa del Sol Open de España

Posted on 16 Nov 2021

Los Naranjos Golf Course

Fifteen days remain until the start of the last event of the Ladies European Tour season, the Andalucía Costa del Sol Open de España, which for the second consecutive year has become the culmination of the Race to Costa del Sol, the order of merit of the women's professional circuit. The chosen venue, Los Naranjos Golf Club, will host from 25th to 28th November the sixty-four best players of the LET and eight exceptional guests presenting their best face and with the mission of becoming a fair and demanding judge in this decisive test.

Los Naranjos Golf Club was inaugurated in 1977 on a plot of land previously used for growing orange trees, hence its current name. The designer, the renowned Robert Trent Jones Sr., had in mind the future use of the course to host high-level professional events such as the one about to take place, combining beauty, functionality and quality. This course, like all of this designer's courses, is characterised by its long tees and bunkers that are highly visible from the tee, with fairways well protected by palm trees and ficus trees whose roots, on occasions, can be seen and pose a challenge to the player to put the ball back in play.

It is also worth noting the presence of two very different halves of the course. The first nine holes have more undulations, present more risks from the tee and it is vitally important to be well positioned, even if it means giving up great distances from the tee. At first glance, the second round may appear to be a recovery section, but nothing could be further from the truth, as the greens are well protected and the flag positions can add spice to any hole.

In the development of Los Naranjos Golf Club, the use of recycled water is essential in environmentally sensitive areas, and the presence of Acosol among the institutions and organisations collaborating in the Andalucía Costa del Sol Open de España ensures that the tournament has as its fundamental objectives the protection of the environment and the promotion of sustainability.

Committed to the environment, Acosol, the public company of the Mancomunidad de Municipios de la Costa del Sol Occidental that manages the integral water cycle, is dedicated to collecting, transporting, purifying and regenerating waste water to offer it an additional use, a basic task to preserve water resources. The irrigation of golf courses with recycled water is an essential milestone in its initiatives and the implementation in courses such as Los Naranjos Golf Club, venue of the Andalucía Costa del Sol Open de España, or Finca Cortesín, venue of the Solheim Cup 2023, is an example of its efforts.

Spain Golf - The recent improvements made at Los Naranjos Golf Club will mark the development of the Andalucía Costa del Sol Open de España

Posted on 15 Nov 2021

Los Naranjos Golf Course

Los Naranjos Golf Club is preparing to host one of the most prestigious events in the club's history as final plans get underway for this month's Andalucía Costa del Sol Open de España, the highlight of this season's Race to the Costa del Sol on the Ladies European Tour (LET).

Los Naranjos, one of Marbella's most exclusive clubs, will have the honour of hosting the high-profile event for the first time from 25-28 November, as Europe's elite women golfers compete for the chance to claim the 2021 Official Ranking. Located in the heart of Nueva Andalucía in Marbella, and a short drive from Puerto Banús, the course was designed by renowned American architect Robert Trent Jones Snr. and opened in 1977.

The par-72, 6,532-metre layout has hosted numerous high-profile professional and amateur tournaments during its illustrious history, including the 1988 Marbella Ladies Open and the 1989 Spanish PGA Championship, which José Rivero won after beating legend Severiano Ballesteros in a play-off. Players at the Andalucía Costa del Sol Open de España will find the golf course in better condition than ever after a series of major improvements in recent years.

Among the changes that have been made under the expert eye of Borja Diaz, head greenkeeper at Los Naranjos Golf Club, the tees, fairways, greens and bunkers have been improved. In addition, the club has also carried out work to improve drainage and buggy paths so that members and guests can enjoy the course in optimum condition all year round.

"It is a great privilege for Los Naranjos to have been chosen to host the grand finale of the Race to the Costa del Sol, extending the club's strong tradition and commitment to the growth of women's golf in Spain and abroad. With the excellent Robert Trent Snr. design, the recent course improvements we have made and the excellent vantage points available to spectators, the tournament promises to be an event to remember and will be a fantastic way to highlight all that we have to offer to an international audience," said Julián Romaguera, General Manager of Los Naranjos Golf Club.

This month's Andalucía Costa del Sol Open de España marks the start of an exciting time for Andalucía as it begins preparations for the 2023 Solheim Cup to be held at Finca Cortesin Hotel, Golf & Spa in September 2023.

With the Solheim Cup on the horizon, the same institutional and commercial partners have once again decided to support the Andalucía Costa del Sol Open de España. This year, the Andalucía Costa del Sol Open de España has the renewed support of the Ministry of Tourism, Regeneration, Justice and Local Administration of the Junta de Andalucía, Turismo y Planificación Costa del Sol and Acosol - Mancomunidad de Municipios de la Costa del Sol Occidental, entities that understand the value of golf as a tourist attraction and are aware of the importance of promoting women's sport as a way of structuring society. Also aligned with these ideals is Reale Seguros, recently incorporated as a collaborating partner of the Andalucía Costa del Sol Open de España, whom the tournament promoters would like to welcome.

Marbella a vibrant city and internationally recognised as a fabulous golf holiday destination has an endless supply of hotels and golf courses.

Spain Golf - El Bosque Golf Club finishes the integral reform of its golf course after investing three and a half million euros

Posted on 15 Nov 2021

El Bosque Golf Club

El Bosque Golf Club has completed a major renovation of its golf course, making it one of the best courses in Spain and perfect for your golf breaks or golf holidays. With a members-only tournament, it has celebrated a historic day for the club. The refurbishment allows a leap in quality of service and to carry out a more sustainable and environmentally friendly maintenance.

The project has involved a total investment of three and a half million euros and has been implemented in three phases. The first, carried out in 2019, included the construction of a new short game area and a putting green; a second, which affected the second nine holes of the course; and a third, the refurbishment of the first nine holes which began in February 2021.

At the same time as the renovations have been carried out, the club has experienced a huge growth in the number of members and now has more than 600. In the last year, and despite the pandemic, the increase has been 25%.

From an environmental point of view, the refurbishment has made it possible to replace more than 24,000 metres of pipes in the entire irrigation system and 1,200 sprinklers have been installed, which are much more efficient than the previous ones. Among other improvements, the new Rain Bird IC irrigation system is connected to a weather station that detects the water needs in different areas of the golf course and reduced is consumption.

As for the pitch, over one hundred and forty thousand square metres have been sown by cuttings and around ninety-five thousand square metres of sod have been installed. The choice of grass varieties planted were Bermuda Tifway-419 in rough-calles, Tahoma 31 on tees and Agrostis Stolonifera Tyee on greens (the latter supplied by Semillas Dalmau), varieties that require less water and phytosanitary products.

This renovation, whose work project has been developed by the engineering company Acttua Golf Services and the construction has been executed by Garden & Golf, has also established a new drainage network and has improved the profile of the soil with more than eight thousand five hundred tons of silica sand, thus allowing to have an optimal firm surface for the game.

At the same time, all the bunkers have been renovated with the Better Billy Bunker construction method installed by Mafer Golf, thus obtaining a homogeneity in its playability. In addition, a new network of paths of five thousand metres in length has been built.

Spain Golf - Golfer Ricardo Melo Gouveia provisionally in the 'top 10' in Spain

Posted on 21 Oct 2021

Emporda Golf Forest Course

Portuguese golfer Ricardo Melo Gouveia provisionally placed himself in the top 10 of the Costa Brava Challenge, a tournament of the Challenge Tour taking place at Emporda Golf, in Girona, after completing hole 12 with four under par.

The Spanish tournament, with 200 thousand euros in prize money, started two hours and 40 minutes late due to heavy fog, and Melo Gouveia, like many other players, was unable to complete the first round, which will resume this Wednesday at 09:00 local time.

The number two in the Challenge Tour ranking, the "Race to Majorca", did not start well at Emporda Golf (Par 71), recording two bogeys (one over) in the first four holes, on the 1st and 4th, but reacted well and, with four birdies (one under) on the greens of the 2nd, 7th, 8th and 10th and an eagle (two under) on the 12th, he left the course in ninth place, tied with four other players.

Frenchman Frederic Lacroix, in turn, finished the 18 holes with 64 shots, seven under par, and took the lead of the race, with an advantage of two shots over the group of seven golfers who share second place.

Spain Golf - Lo Romero, "La isla del Golf", with excellence as a sign of identity in each of its corners

Posted on 21 Oct 2021

Lo Romero Golf Course

Lo Romero Golf is not just another course on the Costa Blanca, because if we had to define it with just one word, it would be: EXCELLENCE with capital letters. An EXCELLENCE of which very few courses, not only on the Costa Blanca, but in Spain, can boast.

But obviously, the jewel in the crown are its 18 holes in a course that has been looked after to the maximum. Starting with its tees and finishing with its greens, passing through the fairways, perfect agronomic conditions and presentation of the various playing areas, signposting, rough and bunkers, the latter perfectly prepared and raked at the start of each day, with USGA sand in all of them in a uniform way, and the detail of the club's signature with the logo in the sand. To all this must be added the sensation of entering a silent, aromatic and beautiful space isolated from the rest of the world.

A sensation that begins on the 1st tee of this course, set in a natural basin, which we can enjoy throughout its almost six kilometres from the yellow tees with the sole company of the murmur produced by the branches of the Mediterranean pines as they shake and the gnawing of the squirrels installed on them, a very attractive course with a large wooded area of Aleppo pines that houses an ecosystem of native fauna and flora that has an impact on the client's experience. With a perfect location close to the Mediterranean Sea and with spectacular views, it also has an average annual temperature of 18°C and 300 days of sunshine a year.

Sustainability and care for the environment are the basis of action on which all projects are developed, this course is being audited annually by AENOR in the Environmental certification along with Quality achieved in 2008 and also in January this year was awarded the Carbon Footprint for golf courses.

The excellent facilities of the Driving Range with a phenomenal location that does not interfere with the course, and being able to enjoy the privilege of being able to practice on three platforms of natural grass.

As well as the impeccability of their buggies with which they remain at the forefront of technology. These state-of-the-art burgundy vehicles, in keeping with the corporate image of the course, include GPS Tablet, premium wraparound seats, LED headlights, fridge and seats with the club's logo embroidered on them, presented with a course card, 6 wooden tees and two Tetra Brik water bottles.

These are powerful reasons why Lo Romero Golf can be considered the perfect island for any golfer for a golf holiday or golf break.

Spain Golf - Valderrama, beauty and environmental awareness for the Estrella Damm N.A. Andalucía Masters

Posted on 13 Oct 2021

Real Club Valderrama Golf Course

RC Valderrama presents itself in unbeatable conditions

Real Club Valderrama, an essential partner and venue for all the editions of the Estrella Damm N.A. Andalucía Masters to date, is a clear example of how aesthetics can go hand in hand with competitive demands, a circumstance that is reflected year after year in the results of the tournament. Furthermore, its magnificent presentation has been accompanied for more than 25 years by impeccable environmental management, certified by prestigious international bodies.

All these improvements enrich the tourism offer in the Marbella area.

Real Club Valderrama was the first golf course in Europe to obtain the Audubon International certificate of environmental excellence in 1995 and since then it has passed all the annual evaluations that confirm it as a reference in terms of commitment to the natural environment. In addition, the club also obtained the recognised ISO 14001 environmental management certificate in 2008.

With regard to water, in 2016 Real Club Valderrama installed one of the most advanced irrigation systems in the world, with which it achieved a 19% saving in consumption, but efforts in this area are ongoing, as Javier Reviriego, the club's general manager, explains.

With regard to wildlife, a team of experts monitors the status of all existing wildlife species at the Real Club Valderrama and ensures their protection in the various habitats and sanctuaries located on the course, inventorying and tracking them. In addition, the cork oak grove is regularly cleaned and pruned and more than 90% of the shrubs and flowers on the estate belong to plants native to the Mediterranean region.

On the other hand, the maintenance machinery is equipped with GPS devices that monitor routes and applications in order to optimise the routes used on a daily basis. With this detailed monitoring, adjustments are made to the operators' routes in order to reduce them and thus limit fuel consumption. In addition, the fleet of machinery is being renewed with electric and hybrid devices, another measure aimed at reducing fuel use.

Of course, golfer support for the environmental management programme is essential to its long-term success and so Real Club Valderrama staff are particularly involved in communicating the importance of environmental management at conferences, forums and in the media. Raising awareness and disseminating the projects undertaken is essential to avoid clichés and stereotypes and to ensure that the efforts of the club, and the world of golf, are taken on board by society.

Tickets to enjoy this year's edition of the Estrella Damm N.A. Andalucía Masters are already on sale, and the flexibility of the offer allows you to choose between individual access for each day, four-day passes or weekend passes, with preferential rates for under 14s, members of the federation or people with reduced mobility. Tickets can be purchased from the Tickets menu on the tournament website, at edamgolf.es or at Fever.

The Estrella Damm N.A. Andalucía Masters, a European Tour tournament valid for the Race to Dubai and held thanks to the essential collaboration of the Real Club Valderrama, is sponsored by Estrella Damm and the Consejería de Turismo, Regeneración, Justicia y Administración Local de la Junta de Andalucía. It is also co-financed with European funds and has been declared an event of exceptional public interest by the Spanish Government.

Teetimes has excellent accommodations close to the golf course, ideal for your stay during the tournament or your golf breaks or golf holidays, such as the Hotel Encinar Sotogrande and the SO/Sotogrande ex Almenara Hotel.
