Lumine Mediterránea Beach & Golf Community will play host to the 3rdCosta Daurada Golf Festival, a combination of the 2019 Costa Daurada International Pro-Am and the PGAs of Europe Fourball Championship, in February next year.

The renowned Spanish club will host the Costa Daurada International Pro-Am from February 7-10, with teams of one professional and three amateurs competing over three rounds, together with a guaranteed prize fund of €20,000 for professionals.

Directly after,from February 11-14, the PGAs of Europe Fourball Championship will see up to 120 pairs of PGA Professionals battle it out across the club’s Hills and Lakes courses in what has become one of the largest professional tournaments in the world.

Professionals are invited to enter both events, which have joined forces for the third year in a row to celebrate the ongoing successful partnership that Lumine, the PGAs of Europe and the local tourism agencies of the Costa Daurada have forged.

“We are delighted to return to Lumine for the third edition Costa Daurada Golf Festival”, said PGAs of Europe Chief Executive, Ian Randell. “The Fourball Championship is a real jewel in the crown of PGA Professional tournaments, first played in 2002 and attracting over 200 players competing for the title – one of the largest Professional fields in the world.

He added: “The Costa Daurada Golf Festival is a fantastic way for players from all over Europe to start their season in a competitive but friendly atmosphere, and on some of the best golf courses that Spain has to offer.”

Calle Carlsson, general manager of Lumine, commented: “We are very pleased to continue our partnership with the PGAs of Europe and welcoming the return of these two incredibly exciting events, which make up our Festival of Golf. Together with the support of the Costa Daurada Tourist Board and their partners, we are sure the events will again be of a fantastic standard and provide a great experience for our professional and amateur guests alike.”

The PGA of Spain’s Emilio Cuartero captured his first professional win at the 2018 edition of the Costa Daurada International Pro-Am on what is his home course, with a consistent play in tough conditions allowing him to finish two shots ahead of the rest of the field. Later in the week, the Spanish dominance continued in the 2018 Fourball Championship, when PGA professionals Xavier Puig Giner and Adria Arnaus Antunex, produced a wire-to-wire finish to win the championship with a 28-under-par total to take home the €6,000 first prize.
