London Golf Club launch Junior Development Programme ‘The London Cubs’

6th April 2021
London Golf Club are excited to continue developing their Academy and are delighted to introduce a new junior coaching programme to give children the opportunity to gain fantastic golf skills, build social networks, and develop their physical and mental health in a safe environment. Using specific training programmes designed to build skill, strength, and fitness, London Golf Club will develop the next generation of golfers. The juniors have been aptly nicknamed the London Cubs as a tribute to the course designer Jack Nicklaus, the Golden Bear. Throughout the school term, each class will focus on the key areas of golf whilst incorporating games or other activities to compliment the learning experience and allow the children to have fun at the same time. Juniors will hone their skills over the course of six school terms and will be rewarded and recognised for their improvement and progress at an end of term awards presentation. Assistant PGA Professional Lewis Matthews, together with Head PGA Professional Paul Stuart, will monitor individual development with the goal of providing each pupil with their own roadmap to becoming a well-rounded golfer. It is the hope of the venue that throughout this programme the children will gain invaluable social and sporting skills, whilst at the same time aiding their mental and physical well-being. As the juniors grow in their ability and age, they will be encouraged to join the newly introduced academy membership category, which will allow them to participate within the Kent County teams. This programme will be introduced exclusively to existing members of London Golf Club, giving their children a fantastic opportunity to learn the fundamentals of golf and to eventually play alongside their parents enjoying the many benefits golf has to offer. Following a successful roll-out to membership, the LGC Academy will be eager to introduce the programme into the local area surrounding the club.

Two of Europe’s top resorts extend their partnership with European Tour Destinations

26th March 2021
PGA Catalunya Resort in Spain and Portugal’s Quinta do Lago have both renewed their long-standing partnership with European Tour Destinations, allowing them to continue to benefit from the expertise provided with an alliance with the European Tour. Set in a stunning landscape against a breath-taking mountainous backdrop, PGA Catalunya was recently voted in the top 3 golf resorts in Continental Europe and number 1 in Spain by Golf World magazine.  Located just an hour from both Barcelona and the French border and 20 minutes from the historic city of Girona, the resort has experienced a surge in demand as it leads the way in physical and emotional wellbeing initiatives. The Wellness Centre due to open in April, will further cement the resort’s position as a leading golf and wellness destination, offering next-generation therapies alongside traditional, natural treatments and rituals. PGA Catalunya is renowned for its two golf courses, the Stadium and the Tour, which regularly feature at the top of any golf rankings and is also home to 5* Hotel Camiral, four restaurants, outstanding practice facilities at the Golf Hub plus real estate opportunities ideally situated within the courses. David Plana, CEO of PGA Catalunya Resort said, ““Our longstanding relationship with European Tour Destinations is a stamp of approval and an assurance of the tournament quality experiences home buyers and hotel guests can expect on our two world class golf courses, at The Golf Hub and across the resort.  “The opening of our new Wellness Centre in April will further enhance the experiences on offer and underlines our focus on the physical and emotional wellbeing of residents and customers. Our vision is to become one of the world’s leading golf and wellness destinations and our partnership with European Tour Destinations remains an important factor in our ongoing and future success.” Bordering the Atlantic Ocean and the picturesque Ria Formosa Natural Park, on Portugal’s Algarve coast, Quinta do Lago is a multi award-winning venue recognised the world over, with all three championship golf courses consistently voted in the Top 100 Courses in Continental Europe by Golf World magazine.  Investment in the resort is a key focus at Quinta do Lago both on and off the golf courses.  The North Course had a total redesign in 2014, while the South Course is currently undergoing a €7 million investment in collaboration with GEO Foundation to ensure sustainability and reduce environmental impact, which will see it reopen in September 2021.  The golf courses are complimented by impressive practice facilities including the Paul McGinley Golf Academy.  Off course, The Campus is a state-of-the art performance and innovation environment that attracts both the top athletes in the world as well as sports enthusiasts of all ages and abilities.  The resort also offers twelve different dining opportunities and the stylish, boutique Magnolia Hotel, in addition to the range of luxury real estate developments that surround the courses. Ian Knox, Head of Operations at European Tour Destinations, said: “It has been a busy start to 2021 and we are

Austrian Golf Open added to 2021 European Tour schedule

23rd March 2021
The European Tour today announced the Austrian Golf Open will be played at Diamond Country Club in Atzenbrugg from April 15-18, 2021. The tournament returns to the European Tour’s schedule after last being played in July 2020 when it marked the Tour’s resumption following a three month suspension in the season due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  The Austrian Golf Open, which has a prize fund of €1million, moves into the date vacated by the Tenerife Open at Golf Costa Adeje, which will now take place from April 29 – May 2 following the postponement on Friday of the Portugal Masters at Dom Pedro Victoria Golf Course, in Vilamoura, due to ongoing travel difficulties.  Keith Pelley, Chief Executive of the European Tour, said: “Throughout the pandemic, we have had to be agile with our scheduling and today’s announcement is another example of that.  “We are naturally grateful to Diamond Country Club and the Austrian Golf Federation for once again helping us to continue to provide a full schedule and playing opportunities for our members. “Diamond Country Club is obviously a venue that we know very well, and we look forward to returning there next month.” Dr. Peter Enzinger, President of the Austrian Golf Federation, said: “We are very proud that the European Tour has, once again, chosen Austria to host a European Tour event and that the Austrian Golf Federation is able to contribute. “The Covid-19 pandemic continues to pose major challenges for international sporting bodies, but in spite of this, working together with our partners in the Federal Ministry of Sport, we have been able to provide all the necessary information, in a very short space of time, to the European Tour making their decision much easier. “Diamond Country Club in Atzenbrugg has distinguished itself many times as an excellent host already and we are very happy that Europe’s elite will be teeing off again this year in the region of Lower Austria. Obviously, the tournament will go ahead in compliance with the strictest Covid-19 prevention measures, but they will definitely not detract from the delight of the game of golf at its best.” Christian Guzy, President of Diamond Country Club, said: “Our long-standing collaboration with the European Tour stems from, and is based on, mutual trust, especially given the difficult circumstances presented by the COVID-19 pandemic. “Last year, along with the European Tour, we showed courage in hosting the first European Tour tournament of the COVID-era, a challenge we mastered beyond expectations. “With this year’s tournament, we hope to once again showcase golf in Austria and use the international media presence to support local tourism as the summer season is nearing. “I am grateful to the everyone at the Austrian Golf Federation and the Ministry for allowing us to represent our country internationally. Of course, we are also grateful to everyone else who has made it possible to organise the 2021 Austrian Golf Open within such a tight timeframe.” The Austrian Golf Open was first played on the European

Global trends drive new demand for golf real estate

18th March 2021
A global increase in demand for green spaces, wellness and the opportunity to work from home is driving new interest in golf properties in the wake of the pandemic.  Buyers, many of whom are leaving cities, are attracted to golf resorts for their nature, fresh air and five-star services. These are the findings of a new international audit by European Tour Destinations, a network of 30 world class golf venues, highlighting shifts in consumer behaviour and emerging trends, and published in a new multimedia feature: New Era for Golf Real Estate The audit reveals: At Jumeirah Golf Estates, Dubai, UK property buyers now account for 40% of real estate sales, up 10% year-on-year The number of domestic buyers at Quinta do Lago, Portugal, has nearly doubled from 11% to 20% PGA Catalunya Resort, Spain, is opening a new Wellness Centre this spring, one of four resorts (also Jumeirah Golf Estates, Dubai, Lighthouse Golf & Spa Resort, Bulgaria and Quinta do Lago, Portugal) investing over €25 million (combined) in new wellness amenities European Tour Destinations real estate consultant Sandra Ruttle, who conducted the audit, said: “It’s long been the case that non-golfers make up the majority of residents in golf communities, typically 66%. But new buyers are now realising that residential golf communities offer much more than golf. “In the case of European Tour Destinations, these are resorts with world class amenities and services, communities with shops, restaurants and spa facilities. They are safe, secure, peaceful places to live – and they are proving highly attractive places to live and invest in.” Ruttle highlights how golf property buyers are increasingly from local and domestic markets, often quitting city homes and making their purchase a permanent home, rather than an investment. The New Era for Golf Real Estate feature also highlights in-depth case studies from PGA Catalunya Resort, Terre Blanche, France and Pirin Golf & Country Club, Bulgaria.
