Luxurious Resort in Costa Dorada, Southern Barcelona Appoints the Expertise of Troon Golf





Scottsdale, Ariz. - Troon Golf,® the leader in upscale golf course management, development and marketing has been selected to manage the 45-hole Lumine Golf Club within the exclusive Mediterranea Beach & Golf Community, near Portaventura in Tarragona, Spain. The luxurious community situated adjacent to the sea boasts some stunning views of the Mediterranean. Home to three courses, two of which are designed by golf legend Greg Norman, Mediterranea Beach & Golf Community is regarded as one of the most exciting and rapidly growing golf and leisure destinations in Europe.

Owned by one of Europe's most renowned financial establishments, Criteria CaixaCorp, Mediterranea Beach & Golf Community is beautifully designed to face the Balearic Sea and is ideally located in the heart of the Mediterranean and only an hour's drive from the cosmopolitan city of Barcelona. Home to year-round glorious weather, Mediterranea will see Troon Golf manage its three golf courses and tranquil beach club.

"We are excited to be working with the team at Mediterranea Beach & Golf Community," commented Bruce Glasco, managing director, Troon Golf Europe, Middle East and Africa. "The golf course design has been first class and when you add the Beach Club, restaurant and the nearby PortAventura amusement park, the resort experience becomes very appealing to both golfers and non-golfers alike. The facility's master plan is hugely impressive and we look forward to bringing our expertise to the project to enhance the quality and services on offer."

The par 71 North course and the nine-hole Centre course, which opened in June 2008 were designed by two-time major winner Greg Norman, and have played host to Sergio Garcia's Pro-Am tournament in two of the past three years - a further testament to the developments rapid maturity and expansion.

"With the collaboration of Troon Golf, we are convinced that Lumine Golf Club will soon be recognized amongst the finest golf resorts in the region," said Luis Rullan, president and managing director of Mediterranea Beach & Golf Community. "Troon Golf's expertise in managing golf courses, combined with our team, will enable us to further develop our project and services and offer a high-end product to our customers."

The North course is arguably the most technically challenging of Norman's designs at Mediterranea, which requires a certain level of precision and strategy. The Centre course has integrated archeological remains, historical towers and sea views that make it unique to the Spanish region. The par 72 South course was founded on environmentally sustainable concepts and includes an irrigation system that utilizes recycled water. All three courses at Mediterranea are the first in Spain to be granted the Audubon International Gold Signature Sanctuary certification for their sustainable environmental practices.
