“In November, all hell broke loose and we lost 14 holes! It was quite a storm. The river burst its banks and just went through the golf course. I was there that night. It was about 9.30 in the evening; we’d had a pro-am on the two courses and we were doing the prize giving dinner.”
“I’ve never taken a role where I’ve gone in there and everything’s been perfect, so there’s opportunity at Celtic to really sort of look at things in a way which is certainly going to help from a commercial standpoint and continue to improve the guest journey, the guest experience.”
“Our investments are always made with our community in mind and a value for enhancing quality of life for families. The most important place we want to be ranked is among the esteem of our visitors and members. We believe the South Course is the top course in Europe, and these investments are sure to further enhance this.”
“These men started talking about women’s golf, and some Swedish guy said, ‘but we would need toilets on the course’. “I was like: ‘Really? Women’s golf to you is a toilet on the course?’ They completely missed the whole point. The thing is, if you want to have more female golfers, we need to have more women in leading roles. Otherwise, they will never show up, because they need an example.”
“Golfers have been brought up with plastic being the norm, but there really is no need to keep on relying on them when there are better materials available. When I start speaking to people about why our bamboo tees are a better solution than plastic or even wooden tees there is a light-bulb moment, then people are quite open to switching.”
Situated 100km south of Barcelona, along Costa Dorada’s ‘Golden Coast’, Lumine is without a doubt one of the most diverse in Europe, featuring two 18-hole courses and a spectacular nine-hole layout, Hills, Lakes and Ruins; with the latter two both designed by Greg Norman.
