Lumine named Europe’s Best Golf Venue for second consecutive year

Lumine has been named ‘Europe’s Best Golf Venue’ for the second year in-a-row at the World Golf Awards. Voted for by leading golf tourism professionals as well as thousands of golf consumers worldwide, the World Golf Awards serves to recognise and celebrate commitment to excellence in golf tourism.

As host venue for the European Tour Final Qualifying Stage since 2017, Lumine has welcomed the next generation of talent from across the world, and will continue to do so until 2022, having singed a new three-year extension at the beginning of 2020; which is further proof of the high regard Lumine is held in across the industry.

Lumine is without a doubt one of the most exciting golfing destinations in Europe, offering one of the most exclusive on and off the golf courses experiences; boasting an unrivalled beach club with panoramic views of the Mediterranean, two state-of-the-art clubhouses, five outstanding restaurants, first-class practice facilities including Toptracer, and direct access to one of the most beautiful beaches on the coast.

On the courses, its 45 holes present the perfect blend of challenge and reward. With two courses designed by World Golf Hall of Famer Greg Norman, Lakes is a technically challenging 6,300-metre, par-71 golf course and Ruins is a nine-hole layout built alongside Roman archaeological remains from the second century BC.

The Hills course completes the line-up, offering a 6,334-metre par-72 course in sharp contrast to the Lakes, with its incredible coastal views, set amongst leafy woods and olive plantations.

Agustin Garcia, Chief Business Officer, Lumine Golf Club, said: “We are honoured to be recognised by World Golf Awards. We would like to thank the public and the industry’s leading professionals for displaying this accolade upon us for the second consecutive year. It has been a difficult year for everyone in the industry, but over the last 12 months we have worked collectively at Lumine to retain this award. We are looking forward to welcoming more international visitors back to the club in 2021 and being able to properly showcase our state-of-the-art facilities.

“Without the hard-work and dedication of all our staff, we would not have been able to provide a first-class service to all our guests. This award is testament to all the sacrifices they have made throughout the last year, and our goal is now to improve and look to offer a complete golf experience for every guest; giving us the best chance of winning the award for the third year in a row next year.”

Andy Gordon, Head of Golf, Lumine Golf Club, further commented “Winning this award two years in a row is nothing short of amazing. We are very proud to have been chosen again and would like to thank everyone who put their faith in Lumine for voting. As a club, we pride ourselves on offering the best facilities and services in the region, with our two championship courses, as well as numerous off course restaurants and beach club for guests to enjoy. We are extremely excited to welcome international visitors and the European Tour’s Q-School back to Lumine in 2021.”

Earlier this year, the club agreed a partnership with the Swiss Golf Association to become the winter training base for the country’s national amateur and professional golf teams; again demonstrating how highly rated the facilities at Lumine are seen to be.

They also marked Women’s Golf Day by becoming the first golf club in Spain to pledge its support to The R&A’s Women in Golf Charter; committing to increase female membership at the club by 50% and introduce the game of golf to up to 100 females over the next few years.
