Med Group nurtures future golf stars at Bonmont

8.07am 15th September 2008 - Travel

The newly launched John Cook School of Golf is based at the Med Group’s luxurious Bonmont golf and residential community, on Spain’s Costa Daurada south of Barcelona. The academy will provide budding 8-18 year old players with warm weather training between October and March ahead of the UK golf season.

The 130-acre Bonmont residential community is situated between the mountains and the sea. When complete it will be home to 1,000 residential units plus the Sheraton Bonmont Golf Resort & Spa.

The development is built around a spectacular par 72, 18-hole golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr and facilities include three large swimming pools, an additional par 3 course, tennis courts, paddle tennis and a large, multi-purpose sports pitch.

The clubhouse, which has wide-ranging sea and golf course vistas, is home to the golf academy, a fully-equipped gym, a bar as well as a restaurant offering fine Mediterranean cuisine.

John Cook said, “It is vital that players have facilities to practice and be tutored from an early age throughout the year. The warm weather training allows individuals to sharpen up their skills ahead of the new season without being interrupted by the inclement British weather.

“With its picturesque Mediterranean setting, Bonmont is one of the most beautiful courses in Spain. This makes it the ideal place to create our junior golf programme and discover the next stars of this well established sport.”

In addition to the academy programme, the school is also available to all Bonmont residents and other UK-based golf enthusiasts, whilst it is also expects to launch a specific scholarship scheme with select public schools.
