European Tour Destinations venues re-open in a ‘new normal’

19th August 2020
After several months of temporary closure, all European Tour Destinations Resorts have now re-opened and are ready to welcome their guests to the ‘new normal’. Each of these Destinations have implemented strict measures and protocols according to country requirements. Physical distancing is at the forefront everywhere while extensive staff training has been undertaken to ensure health and safety guidelines are introduced and followed properly, both by staff and guests. Despite the uncertainty surrounding the pandemic, ETD resorts are reporting strong levels of property enquiries and good sales volumes. Sandra Ruttle from ETD says: “This is leading us to be cautiously optimistic for the golf real estate market as properties located on our resorts have shown steady appreciation over the past couple of years and continue to perform well based on sustained demand, contained supply and robust compliance with COVID-19 guidelines. The resurgence in demand during this time, particularly in the more established golf markets, is not only due to the attractiveness of resort properties – as buyers are more focused on lifestyle, space and working remotely – but international property owners have been isolating within their properties, causing them to view them as more than just a second home. The lifestyle, ambience and the COVID-19 focused support structures are all enabling resort residents to feel more at ease than if they were residing at their primary residence.” The continuous efforts by ETD network resorts to providing a safe environment matters just as much for the resorts’ clients as they do for the residents. Property owners on ETD resorts can be assured of high-quality services, safety and security, and that applies to potential buyers as well, who want to view properties in the safest way. This is made possible through strict procedures operated by the sales teams, virtual viewings and more flexibility when reserving a property, all of which gives confidence and trust to residents, both current and future. Service has never been more important and European Tour Destinations resorts are ideally positioned to offer residents an optimal lifestyle within these uncertain times.  Begin your search for your dream golf property today.

St. Leon-Rot Calling all Elite Golfers

8th July 2020
Golf Club St. Leon-Rot offers a tournament platform for elite golfers Back in the tournament mode – top golfers under the age of 25 have the chance in July to compete in a top field in excellent tournament conditions. The SLR Academy Invitational – The Elite Championship is the Golf Club St. Leon-Rot’s answer to the peculiar months without titles and cups in which the young elite golfers’ yearning for competitive golf grew all the time. The annual German Boys & Girls Open at the start of June also had to be cancelled due to the corona developments. Elite Championship over three rounds Europe’s top amateurs will have the chance to finally play some competitive golf again on the Course Rot of Golf Club St. Leon Rot from 28 to 30 July. Two 75-player fields will contest the 54-hole tournaments – one for men and one for women – without a cut. Members of the Golf Team Germany National Team and Junior Team are qualified for the SLR Academy Invitational plus the best 40 male and female players ranked in the Top 800 of the World Amateur Golf Rankings. Should there be any unfilled places, interested golfers with an EGA handicap of -0.5 that were born in 1995 or later are also invited to enter. “We know just how important competitive golf is for elite players and we are well aware of how difficult the time must be without being able to put one’s abilities to the test in competition. It’s another reason why we’ve established this Elite Championship. We love top class tournament golf and are looking forward to a strong field for the event. We will be looking to provide the best playing conditions to enable an exciting competition,” says Eicko Schulz-Hanßen, General Manager of the Golf Club St. Leon-Rot. Junior Development programmes need high class competition For the Golf Club St. Leon-Rot, the SLR Academy Invitational is the logical continuation of a central building block of its philosophy, namely of combing the development of the top promising juniors and the organisation of high-calibre golf tournaments. The German Boys & Girls Open that has been held – with the exception of this year – annually since 2004 is thereby only one Golf Club St. Leon-Rot hallmarks.
