Lumine set to welcome the biggest hitters in the game

October 9, 2014

Lumine Mediterránea Beach & Golf Community has been confirmed as the venue for the final event of the 2014 Long Drivers European Tour season, THE MASTERS LDET CUP, in what is set to be a thrilling climax to the second season of the Long Drivers European Tour circuit.

Located on the stunning Costa Dorada coastline, an hour south of Barcelona, the Troon-managed Lumine Beach & Golf Club will provide the perfect setting for the event featuring some of the biggest hitters in the game. With 45-holes of championship golf and impeccable practice facilities, the facility is fast becoming one of the most popular golfing destinations on the Continent. The MASTERS LDET CUP tournament will feature the likes of 2010 World Champion and 2013 European Champion, Joe Miller (ENG) as well as John McSloy (SCO), Scott Beaven (ENG) and Dewald Lubbe (SA) among others, as they compete for one of the most coveted titles in the world of long driving.

“This will be the first hosting of a long drive competition here at Lumine Beach & Golf Club and we are certainly looking forward to working alongside the LDET tour to make this a truly memorable event for all involved,” commented Calle Carlsson, General Manager, Lumine Mediterránea Beach & Golf Community. “We pride ourselves on hosting innovative golf events that bring new people into the game and I certainly believe the lure of watching some of the biggest hitters in the game will achieve that”.

Xavier Eusebio, LDET CEO and Founder commented, “We are very proud with this announcement as it's an honour for us to stage the MASTERS LDET CUP at such a spectacular golf resort as Lumine Beach & Golf Club. I have no doubt it will be an amazing championship as we have some of the best European long drivers competing for the season ending title, that undoubtedly means so much to them all.”

The flagship golf course at Lumine is the Greg Norman designed, Lakes Course. Opened in 2008 with a Sergio Garcia Pro-Am, its reputation is now such that it plays host to a number of high-profile tournaments, including the second stage of the European Tour Qualifying School, Nordea Tour Winter Series and PGAs of Europe's prestigious annual fourball event. The Great White Shark's fins are certainly all over this challenging, technical test that unfolds over the colourful network of water hazards that wind around the Sèquia Major wetlands. Using the natural setting, the two-time Open Champion has created a unique expression of golf's tests and rewards.

Lumine's second championship course, The Hills is topographically very different to its sister course. Designed by Spanish course architect, Alfonso Vidaor, this undulating layout weaves its way through picturesque pine woodlands, olive groves, natural quarries and rocky outcrops, and puts a precedent on shot shaping and course management. Those who choose to play this enthralling layout will also be treated to incredible views over the Mediterranean Sea.
