Las Colinas 18th

Las Colinas Golf and Country Club are inviting golfers from across Europe to take part in the Las Colinas Trophy – the climax to the resort’s golfing season – next month.

Just a 50-minute drive south of Alicante, Las Colinas is regarded as one of Europe’s premier golf resorts, and benefits from over 300 days of annual sunshine on Spain’s Costa Blanca. The resort is nestled in a secluded valley, surrounded by 10,000 hectares of natural pine forest, and situated just a few kilometers from the Mediterranean sea.

Golfers of all ages are welcome, providing they have an official handicap, to get together from December 5-7 for three days of winter sun, and an unforgettable guest and gastronomic experience at one of the continent’s most prominent golfing resorts.

The Las Colinas Trophy has been created especially for amateurs to help showcase the numerous sports, leisure and lifestyle facilities on offer at Last Colinas, which was voted ‘Spain’s Best Golf Course’ – its fifth time collecting the accolade – and ‘World’s Leading Golf & Villa Resort’ at the 2021 World Golf Awards.

As well as an 18-hole championship golf course and outstanding practice facilities, the resort offers a wide-range of comprehensive leisure facilities including a golf academy, padel and tennis academy, WOW Beach on the seafront, a gym and a wellness area.

Along with unlimited use of the practice facilities – including Toptracer technology on the driving range and a short-game area designed by Miguel Angel Jimenez – competitors will enjoy a practice round and 18-hole individual Stableford competition on Las Colinas’ award-winning 18-hole championship course, which was designed by world-renowned architect Cabell B. Robinson.

In addition, a sponsors’ village will be available next to the course where players, friends and families can play some of the most famous courses of the world on a TopTracer simulator and sample a range of different Mediterranean cuisines, while the event will culminate with a lavish gala dinner at Las Colinas’ exclusive Italian restaurant il Palco including a prize-giving ceremony, live music and much more.

The inaugural event, which has attracted Grupo Eulen as the main sponsor and Victorinox, Cuevas Amoros, Casmara, Callaway and Troon Golf as its other sponsors, is intended to be expanded in the coming years to include several international qualifying tournaments.

Javier Rodríguez, Director of Operations of Las Colinas Golf & Country Club, said: “The Las Colinas Trophy is more than just a golf event. Both the program of activities and the prizes, gifts and trophies will make the three-day tournament a memorable experience for all the competitors, as they will be able to combine relaxation, regional tourism and gastronomy with their favourite sport, all in a world apart.

“We’re privileged this year to include the likes of the prestigious Swiss watch brand Victorinox and the high-end cosmetics company Casmara among our sponsors which, together with Cuevas Amorós jewellery and Callaway, ensure prizes of great quality and value.”

The impressive culinary offering at the resort includes three restaurants – stylish Italian restaurant il Palco, Japanese, Nikkei and Mexican fusion cuisine at umawaand an international menu at unik, made with fresh produce – to give residents and guests an opportunity to enjoy a healthy Mediterranean lifestyle to the fullest.
