Lumine Golf & Beach Club continues to set the benchmark in creating a welcoming environment to play the game by signing an exclusive deal with the PGA of Belgium and PGA of Holland, to become their official winter home in Spain. The partnership will also promote Lumine’s Pro Group packages to over 800 PGA Professional members in Belgium and Holland, coming on the back of rich praise from hosting winter training camps of leading National Golf Federations; Austria, Denmark and Czech Republic earlier this year.
The impressive reputation of the Troon-managed resort, which has seen Lumine selected by leading organisations for a wide variety of prestigious events, has been built on the strength of its overall golf and lifestyle offering, including pristine course conditioning; 45-holes of world-class golf; extensive practice facilities; state-of-the-art Golf Performance Centre; an amazing variety of accommodation options nearby; and accessibility from two international airports, in Barcelona and Reus.
Lumine Golf & Beach Club’s General Manager, Calle Carlsson, commented: “This partnership is just another marker of how Lumine has quickly become the destination of choice for Europe’s leading organisations and governing bodies. I honestly believe that no other resort in Southern Europe provides such an impressive offering of first-class facilities and tournament-ready course & practice conditions all-year round.”
The Chief Executive of PGA Belgium, Bernard De Bruyckere, said: “Lumine Golf & Beach Club has demonstrated its credentials as a host venue for winter training and we are delighted to begin what will hopefully be a longstanding relationship with Calle and his team. Logistically it’s perfect for our members as it’s a short flight and a simple transfer to the sunshine and impeccable golfing facilities.”
Frank Kirsten, Chief Executive of PGA Holland, added: “We are extremely impressed with the resort and the attitude across the whole team in making this partnership possible. I have no doubt it will be an amazing venue for our members to make full use of their winter training regimes.”
One of Europe’s most complete golf facilities, Lumine Golf Club offers an ideal environment for all golfers with its 45-holes, 27 of which have been designed by Australian legend, Greg Norman. Located just one hour south of Barcelona, Lumine Golf Club features an expansive practice facility with a leading Performance Centre, state-of-the-art short game area and putting green. For ease of access and organisation, a host of nearby accommodation options exist to suit a range of budgets.
Lead by head professional Andy Gordon, the Lumine Golf Performance Centre incorporates three major technologies designed to analyse the performance of each individual player: FlightScope, V1 video analysis and Sam Putt Lab. The facility is also home to a TaylorMade T-Fit custom fitting centre available to all of those looking to take their game to the next level.
