Quinta do Lago on Cloud Nine after record 2018

February 8, 2019
Quinta do Lago is set to build on a record-breaking year after seeing a significant rise in golf green-fee bookings in 2018. The stunning Algarve sports and lifestyle venue reported an increase of nine per cent in rounds played at their three superb 18-hole championship courses – the North, South and Laranjal – an impressive growth of 8,500 in real terms. Aside from the continued popularity among UK guests, Quinta do Lago’s wealth of world-class facilities has seen the emergence of visitors from European neighbours Scandinavia and Italy, as well an influx of visitors from as far afield as USA, China and Argentina. After the impressive performance in 2018, the growth looks set to continue, especially with the availability of new flight routes into nearby Faro from five new destinations: Berlin, Cologne, Cork, Marseille and Milan. And with the boutique The Magnolia Hotel, the state-of-the-art sports performance centre The Campus and 10 high-class bars and restaurants to choose from, the appeal of Quinta do Lago continues to grow across the globe. Located just 15 minutes away from Faro airport, the resort’s world-class golf and lifestyle facilities make it the perfect choice for a sporting break, and Quinta do Lago has plenty for golfers to get excited about, with three-night, two-round breaks bookable from only €314 per person until the end of March 2019.  

European Tour Properties add two further Dubai Golf Destinations

February 5, 2019
Emirates Golf Club and Dubai Creek & Yacht Club have both been added to European Tour Properties’ world class network of Destinations. The venues, located in Dubai, become the second and third Destinations in the Emirate, joining Jumeirah Golf Estates, with all three venues being managed under the umbrella of Dubai Golf. Emirates Golf Club is one of the world’s most prominent venues, hosting the European Tour’s longest-running Middle East event, the Omega Dubai Desert Classic, for 28 of the 30 editions. The venue contains The Faldo Course, the Par 3 Academy Course and The Majlis Course, which is the flagship championship course and host venue for the Omega Dubai Desert Classic, won last month by Bryson DeChambeau. The Majlis was originally designed by Karl Litten and was the first grassed course in the Middle East, taking its name from the Arabic word for ‘meeting place’. In addition to world class golf facilities, Emirates Golf Club offers six dining options including the Roseleaf Café and the renowned Carine, a French Mediterranean restaurant, along with various sporting activities such as tennis, padel tennis, squash, fitness classes and a luxurious spa, allowing guests to relax away from the golf course. Dubai Creek & Yacht Club’s Championship Course is the stand-out feature of the venue, a par 71 course which has hosted the Dubai Desert Classic on two occasions and provides players with a memorable journey around its creek and various lakes. There is also a floodlit nine-hole Par 3 Course at Dubai Creek & Yacht Club which is perfect for golfers of all abilities to hone their skills, as well as a fun mini golf course. Away from the course visitors can dine in one of six outlets or partake in such varied activities as yoga, swimming or sailing, on one of the Yacht Club’s charters. Iain McInally, Head of European Tour Properties, said: “It is with great pride that we welcome Emirates Golf Club and Dubai Creek & Yacht Club to our network. “Having hosted an event on the European Tour on 28 occasions, Emirates Golf Club is a true world class venue which has witnessed many of the world’s greatest players walk its fairways. “Dubai Creek & Yacht Club is a stunning venue which offers more than just golf and is recognised as one of Dubai’s finest venues.” Christopher May, Chief Executive Officer of Dubai Golf, said: “We are delighted to extend our partnership with European Tour Properties across our three destinations to include Emirates Golf Club and Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club in addition to Jumeirah Golf Estates. “Dubai Golf has a long-standing relationship with the European Tour, as we play the proud hosts of the Omega Dubai Desert Classic and the Race to Dubai finale at the DP World Tour Championship every year. “This new affiliation cements our already strong bond, and we look forward to a co-operative future with European Tour Properties going forward.”

PGA Catalunya Resort ready to transform its practice facilities with Toptracer Range installation

December 12, 2018
Leading Spanish golf destination, PGA Catalunya Resort, is set to become the latest premiere golf venue to revolutionise its practice facilities with the introduction of Toptracer Range technology. The European Tour Destination, situated on the outskirts of Girona, is currently ranked second in the Golf World Top 100 Resorts in Continental Europe, with its Stadium Course topping top100golfcourses.com’s Spanish course rankings. It has also staged the European Tour’s Open de España on three occasions. The venue’s €53 million investment programme, which kicked off in 2016, has seen significant developments across the resort, both on and off of the fairway: the opening of Girona’s only 5* establishment, Hotel Camiral, the addition of a second, designed for active leisure enthusiasts, the seeding of a new vineyard, the implementation of ecological conservation programmes, numerous course improvements and residential developments. The renowned resort is now set to take its practice facilities to the next level with the introduction of Toptracer Range; becoming the first Spanish destination to do so. Transforming driving ranges into bona fide entertainment destinations, Toptracer Range combines technology and fun to create a superior golf experience for players of all skill levels. Toptracer tracks the shots of the best players in the world on the PGA Tour and European Tour, and golfers of all ages and abilities are now able to share that experience in bays at driving ranges the world over. Using cameras mounted around the facility and 21-inch monitors found at each hitting bay, Toptracer Range technology displays an array of details of each shot – including distance, speed, launch angle, shape and more. Data is instantly recorded and displayed on the screen through a player profile that can continuously be accessed through the Toptracer Range community application. Toptracer Range has been introduced at close to 40 venues across Europe to date, including the likes of Wentworth Club and Ryder Cup 2018 host Le Golf National, with PGA Catalunya Resort becoming the latest high-profile venue to adopt the technology as part of a major upgrade of the club’s facilities. Speaking about the decision to install Toptracer Range technology at PGA Catalunya Resort, David Plana, CEO, said: “PGA Catalunya Resort is renowned across Europe as a top-class golfing destination and we are always striving to ensure that we offer our members and guests the best possible experience when they visit us. “Introducing Toptracer Range technology brings a new level of enjoyment at our practice facilities for both golfers and non-golfers. We’re convinced this technology will revolutionise the way that golfers of all skill sets will practice and engage with us here and further afield.” Speaking about the company’s latest partnership, Toptracer President Ben Sharpe said: “We are honoured to be working with a European venue of the stature of PGA Catalunya Resort as we enter the Spanish market for the first time. “The estate is breath-taking and iconic in equal measure, so we are thrilled that we will be a part of its continued quest for perfection by helping to
