News: New facility opens for play at Las Colinas Golf and Country Club
Local golf hero Miguel Ángel Jiménez
opens new facility at Las Colinas Golf
The Costa Blanca´s favourite golf celebrity and PGA Tour Champion Miguel Ángel Jiménez has designed a new short game course at Las Colinas Golf and Country Club.
The new facility which opened for play earlier this week, features a spacious 680 square metre green enabling keen golfers to hone their skills.
Two large practice bunkers have been incorporated into the golf course design allowing players to practice their driving over a 75 yard distance.
The green has been laid using top quality Bermudagrass. The Middle Eastern grass was chosen for it´s fast growing and rugged properties, and it´s tolerance to high temperatures and drought - particularly useful throughout the long dry summers in Spain.
Miguel Ángel Jiménez worked closely with the Las Colinas management team during the development of the new sports facility, "I'm incredibly proud to open the Las Colinas Short Game Facility and have been extremely impressed with the pristine condition of the whole course" he said.
"It's been really exciting watching how the project has developed since we started work earlier this year and I now look forward to seeing golfers from all around the world enjoying a first-class golf facility".
As well as the new facility, Las Colinas Golf and Country Club is home to an 18-hole championship golf course originally designed by Cabell Robinson.
Located just outside Torrevieja, the relatively young course opened in 2010 and has since become recognised as one of the finest golf courses in southern Spain, and the only course in the locality to be listed within Golf World´s Top 100 European Golf Courses.
