Posted on: 6th Dec 2016

Spain’s premier golf and leisure destination invites PGAs of Europe to the Costa Duarada for two professional tournaments in celebration of our great game.

One of Europe’s most popular golf and leisure destinations, Lumine Mediterránea Beach & Golf Community is inviting the PGA professionals and amateur golfers from across Europe to celebrate all that is great about golf, hosting two unique tournaments. The Lumine Golf Festival will see PGA professionals celebrate the sport with amateur golfers of all abilities, through exciting competitions to be held over the award-winning golf courses from 6th-12th February 2017.

The celebrations will begin with the returning PGAs of Europe Fourball Championship Presented by Costa Daurada. The 2017 edition of the tournament will once again be hosted across Lumine’s Championship Lakes and Hills courses from 6th-8th February 2017. With space for 120 pairs, any classified male or female PGA members and trainees, within a PGAs of Europe member country, are invited to enter the latest edition of the Championship.

Following the professional-only tournament, Lumine will welcome golfers of all abilities for its inaugural Lumine International Pro-Am. Taking place from 10th-12th February, the tournament calls for one PGA Professional and three amateur players to battle it out over the renowned Lakes and Hills courses. Alongside the pro-am event, professionals will also compete in a 54-hole stroke play tournament for a guaranteed prize fund of €20,000.

Calle Carlsson, General Manager, Lumine Mediterránea Beach & Golf Club, says: “We are really excited about our Golf Festival in 2017 and as always, we are looking forward to welcoming back the PGAs of Europe and their Fourball competitors.

“This time around, we wanted to create a prolonged period of celebration and fun for golfers of all abilities, from PGA Professionals all the way to fledgling amateurs and recreational golfers. The addition of our International Pro-Am brings another dimension to our relationship with the PGAs of Europe and will allow an even bigger audience of Professionals and amateurs to come and experience our fantastic golf courses, and renowned hospitality.”

Designed by two-time Major Champion and World Golf Hall of Famer, Greg Norman, The Lakes course proves the most technically difficult of the courses. Positioned on the lowest lying land on the property, navigating its way through areas of wetlands and natural vegetation, the 6,300 metre par 71 golf course offers a Links design that is a genuine challenge for any golfer.

Meanwhile Lumine Hills undoubtedly gives players the most spectacular views from the resort, rolling through leafy woods of white pine and extensive plantations of olive and carob trees, the Hills course rises to offer exceptional views out onto the Mediterranean Sea.

The Troon managed property lies just 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, a comprehensive meetings and conference centre, the coastal towns of Salou and Cambrils, both renowned for their nightlife and cuisine, and just ten minutes away is the cultural town of Tarragona.
