The PGA of Great Britain & Ireland’s Paul Hendriksen & James Ruth produced a dazzling final round to win the 2017 Fourball Championship presented by the Costa Daurada, with a -17 total (197).
Conditions at Lumine Mediterránea Beach & Golf Club in Spain were testing, as they had been all week, with gusts reaching up to 50kph. However, unphased by the high winds, the British duo carded an extraordinary seven-under round of 64 to take home the €6,150 first prize.
The Fourball Championship is also the first part of the Lumine Golf Festival and will precede the inaugural Lumine International Pro-Am from 10-12 February with a guaranteed prize fund of €20,000.
LUMINE Mediterránea Beach & Golf Community
Lumine Mediterránea Beach & Golf Community is heralded as one of Spain’s premier golf and leisure destinations. The resort boasts 45 exceptional holes, including 27 holes designed by legendary World of Golf Hall of Famer, Greg Norman.
There are three courses at Lumine; the Lakes, Hills and Ruins, with each course offering golfers a unique and memorable experience. Not only because of the challenge they pose, but also for their design: the 18 hole Lakes course is fully embedded in nature, around the wetlands; the 18-hole Hills course offers spectacular views of the quarries, pine groves and the Mediterranean coastline; and the 9 hole Ruins course runs between archaeological ruins.
Not only has the resort become a firm favourite with golfers of all abilities around Europe, but for five consecutive years, Lumine’s Lakes course has earned Tour-calibre status with The European Tour who has chosen the venue to host its Second Stage Qualifying school, annually since 2012.
Lumine is also very proud to have won the Audubon International Gold Signature Sanctuary Certificate which recognises the environmentally sustainable model of the Lumine Golf Club and its responsible management of water.
The Troon managed property is only 50 minutes south of Barcelona and is home to a luxury Beach Club and a state-of-the-art golf academy. Neighbouring the property is Europe’s most popular theme park, Port Aventura, with Ferrari World opening close by in April 2017. The coastal towns of Salou and Cambrils, both renowned for their nightlife and cuisine can be found nearby, and just ten minutes away is the cultural town of Tarragona.
