Lumine Golf Club is located within the prestigious Mediterranea Beach & Golf Community located next to Portaventura in Costa Daurada, Spain.
The community is described as being situated on 500 hectares and ‘beautifully designed’ to face the Balearic Sea and is ideally located in the heart of the Mediterranean only an hour’s drive from the beautiful cosmopolitan city of Barcelona.
Home to three courses, (two of which are designed by Greg Norman and the other by Green project), the Mediterranea Beach & Golf Community is regarded as one of the most exciting and rapidly growing golf and leisure destinations anywhere in Europe.
Lumine Golf Club’s impressive facilities include two 18 hole and a nine hole golf course, two club houses and a golf school. The Par 71 North course of 6,317 metres and nine-hole Centre course of 2,609 metres, 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, further testament to the development’s rapid maturity and expansion.
The Austrian pair Jurgen Maurer and Michael Moser won the 2011 PGAs of Europe Fourball title when it resumed after a lengthy absence at Antalya Turkey.
