Diamond Country Club renews with European Tour Destinations

16th December 2020
European Tour Destinations are delighted to announce that Diamond Country Club, located just outside of the Austrian capital Vienna, have extended their affiliation with the network. The venue, who have been members since 2012, regularly host tournaments on the European Tour, including the Lyoness Open from 2012 – 2017 and the first tournament back after the COVID-19 break in 2020, the Austrian Open. The venue’s centrepiece is undoubtedly the testing 18 -hole Diamond course but the resort also features the Diamond Country course and 9-hole Diamond Park course, all situated around their 10-hectare lake. Also within the venue is the Diamond Golf Academy which offers superb practice facilities, one on one golf coaching with professionals plus performance analysis. Alongside that, they have two restaurants – the Clubhouse and the Boathouse, that offer Austrian and Mediterranean cuisine, respectively. There also hotel options at Diamond Country Club, with an aparthotel on site and the Diamond City Hotel, located just 10 minutes from the venue. Earlier in 2020, Diamond Country Club were recognised as one of Golf World and Today’s Golfer’s Top 100 Resorts in Continental Europe, with a ranking of 69th. Ian Knox, Head of European Tour Destinations, said: “We are delighted that one of our established venues, Diamond Country Club, are continuing their long-standing partnership with us. Alongside their rich history of hosting tournaments, Diamond are continuously striving for excellence and we look forward to supporting them as they work towards their goals for the years ahead”. Stephan Vogl, General Manager at Diamond Country Club, said: “We are extremely pleased to have renewed our agreement with European Tour Destinations. Since the beginning of our partnership, we have utilised their expertise to develop our venue and have seen significant growth and progression throughout all areas. We look forward to continuing into 2021 and beyond.”

European Tour Destination Jumeirah Golf Estates to host tournament in penultimate week of 2020 schedule

24th November 2020
The European Tour has announced a new tournament, the Golf in Dubai Championship presented by DP World, will be played in the penultimate week of the 2020 season, taking place on the Fire course at European Tour Destination Jumeirah Golf Estates from Wednesday December 2 to Saturday December 5. It will form a December Dubai double-header, preceding the fourth and final Rolex Series event of the year, the season-ending DP World Tour Championship, Dubai, which will be played on the neighbouring Earth course at Jumeirah Golf Estates from Thursday December 10 to Sunday December 13. The tournament builds on the long-term relationship the European Tour has with Dubai, which began more than 30 years ago, and many of its Dubai-based Official Partners, including DP World, Dubai Duty Free and Emirates. Since the inception of the Race to Dubai and the DP World Tour Championship in 2009, the Tour has not only brought the world’s best players to the emirate for its spectacular season ending finale, but it has helped to increase the strength of golf domestically, whilst showcasing Dubai as a world class hub for both business and sport. The announcement of the new Golf in Dubai Championship presented by DP World completes the European Tour’s revamped 2020 schedule which now features 38 tournaments, including 15 additional events which did not exist prior to the season being paused between March and the beginning of July. It also means the European Tour will visit the United Arab Emirates four times in 2020. Keith Pelley, the European Tour’s Chief Executive, said: “It has undoubtedly been a very different and complex challenge to completely reimagine our 2020 schedule since March, but our team has worked incredibly hard behind the scenes, demonstrating creativity and agility. “The Golf in Dubai Championship presented by DP World is the final piece in this jigsaw and continues our policy of playing in geographical clusters. “Alongside the South African Open, it gives our players the option of ending the regular season at one of two terrific locations ahead of our season-finale, the DP World Tour Championship.  “I would like to thank the leaders of Dubai, DP World, Falcon and Associates and Jumeirah Golf Estates for helping to make this new event happen. “The creation of this new tournament reflects the evolution in our partnership with DP World, through their support of the DP World Tour Championship, the Emirates Golf Federation development programmes, our EDGA Dubai finale and, of course, as an Official Partner of the European Tour.” Daniel Van Otterdijk, Chief Communications Officer, DP World said: “As a long-term partner of the European Tour, DP World is proud to support the Golf in Dubai Championship. “Over the past 12 years our partnership has not only contributed to the success and prosperity of Dubai’s economy by driving inbound tourism, but it has also helped to grow the game in the UAE by opening it up to new audiences. “The new tournament is another great example of Dubai’s ability to host

What’s behind Quinta do Lago’s big green investment?

22nd October 2020
Resorts across the globe have been forced to pivot and adapt in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. And while some have taken the difficult decision to shelve capital investment plans, others have pushed forward – recognising the opportunity to enhance the customer experience. Quinta do Lago in Portugal is one such example. Work commenced earlier this year on an ambitious €7m investment to its South Course, involving extensive turf resurfacing work, bunker renovations and lake upgrades. And following the launch of a new sustainability strategy in partnership with GEO Foundation, the investment is set to boost the resort’s green credentials with the installation of new irrigation pumps to improve efficiency and reduce reliance on non-renewable resources, and the planting of native species to increase biodiversity across the course. Why did the resort forge ahead while others were putting a halt on investment plans? CEO Sean Moriarty explains: “Investment to continually improve the experience of our resort is something we are committed to at a foundational level. “The South Course renovations began during the pandemic – with all measures in place for health and safety of our workforce, of course – because while the course was closed, we saw an opportunity to make improvements for our members and guests. “By taking early action in these works, we can ensure that our golf courses remain open and in pristine condition during the peak seasons. With an increased focus on physical and mental wellbeing since the start of the pandemic, the resort recognised the increasing value of its golf courses to members, visitors and residents. “Having had this long period of confinement, we are all more appreciative of time outside in nature. We understand that golf is a pastime that provides a source of great mental health for many in our community. “Our investments are made always with our community in mind and a value for enhancing quality of life for families.” Going green With the resort flanked by the Ria Formosa Natural Park and the renowned beaches of the Algarve, its connection to nature runs deep, and plays a central role not only in this phase of investment, but in its overall strategy. “Our social and environmental responsibility goes all the way back to our earliest moments as a resort, as we uphold a commitment to keeping just nine per cent of our territory available to develop. “This is a promise and we do not underestimate the trust our community has in us to protect this incredible place. “We want Quinta do Lago to become an inspirational, community-engaged and high-profile champion of sustainability,” added Sean.
