Come Play Golf in Salou – on Spain’s 45 Newest Holes

Come Play Golf in Salou – on Spain’s 45 Newest Holes

Salou has become well established as a popular golfing destination and one of the most luxurious areas in which to practice a wide range of sports, complemented by the city itself, to truly relish your free time throughout the year. The facilities at the Lumine Mediterránea Beach & Golf Community are a golfer’s paradise: 170 hectares with three golf courses and the 45 newest holes in Spain, as well as two clubhouses.

Each course presents a totally different experience for players. Not only with respect to the challenges they pose, but also their designs. The 18 holes on the north course meander through dense nature, surrounded by marshlands; the nine holes in the centre course run through archaeological ruins; and you can gaze out upon quarries, pine trees and the sea from the 18 holes of the south course.

Lumine Lakes

The Lakes golf course is surrounded by the Sèquia Major wetlands, classified as a space of natural interest. The Mediterranean setting and landscapes are a great place to relax. This is the most technical course of the three, a true challenge for even the best golf players.

Designed by Greg Norman, it has 18 holes with par 71. The total length is 6,300 metres of fairways, 13,805 square metres of greens, and it is equipped with a practice course, putting green and chipping green, clubhouse and pro-shop.

Lumine Hills

The Hills course offers the most spectacular views while playing. The holes, close to Cape Salou, wind through lush white pine forests and large olive and carob plantations, culminating in incredible sea views. Respect for and integration with the land have resulted in the creation of this attractive and diverse course, whose length complies with the regulations for high-level competition.

Designed by Green Project, it has 18 holes and par 72. The total length is 6,334 metres of fairways, with 13,805 square metres of greens, and it is equipped with a practice course, putting green and chipping green, clubhouse and pro-shop.

Lumine Ruins

The Ruins course has the highest elevation of the Lumine community. It was previously an area with olive and carob groves, which have been transplanted to conserve the original Mediterranean landscape.

This nine-hole course is played on quite flat land. However, its most striking feature is its location among stunning Roman archaeological remains from the 2nd century BC. Designed by Greg Norman, there are 2,353 metres of fairways and a total surface area of greens of 5,787 square metres.

The offer at the Lumine Mediterránea Golf & Beach Community is completed by the Beach Club, which offers unique facilities where visitors can enjoy peace, calm and privacy in a unique Mediterranean setting.

A series of swimming pools will make you think you are bathing in the sea. Their infinity design makes the edges of the pools into a horizon that melds with the sea. You can also choose between a sand pool and a seawater pool, a heated pool or relaxing at the pools under the lush pines.

The crowning touch is the creative and well-designed menu at Lumine restaurant, where you will find the tastes and aromas of exquisite Mediterranean cuisine.
