The history of Carden Park really starts when the land was acquired in the early 17th century by the Leche Family. An elegant Hall was built and the grounds of the park landscaped and stocked with deer. The Hall was ransacked by Cromwell’s troops but survived and continued to be inhabited.‚ In 1912, the main Hall burnt down in a fire, allegedly after someone dropped a cigarette at a party.

COSTA NAVARINO – A Greek Golfing Masterpiece

Golf in Greece? I was having a conversation a couple of years ago with a good friend and PGA Professional who was raving about a new golf resort development he had visited in Messinia Greece, a few hours drive from Athens. He assured me this was going to be something special in the future. We regularly hear about the next big thing in golf resorts at trade shows and in the travel press but sadly grand plans and reality don’t always come to fruition. Thankfully on this occasion, the grand plans of the Costa Navarino Resort have not only come to fruition they are being expanded to be the best golf resort in the whole of Europe and it’s pretty amazing already. Two golf courses are currently in operation and are both superb in design and setting with another two in the early construction stage this, without a doubt, has lived up to the initial excitement.

Costa Navarino - Getting hereCosta Navarino Resort, is home to two 5-star Hotels, The Romanos, a Luxury Collection Resort and The Westin Resort Costa Navarino, part of the Starwood Hotels portfolio, a conference centre, Anazoe Spa and Thalassotherapy, The Dunes Course – the first signature golf course in Greece, two specially designed children hubs, Cocoon and SandCastle, along with numerous culinary venues and a wide variety of sports, outdoor and cultural activities on offer. Navarino Bay, just a few minutes from Navarino Dunes, is home to the second signature golf course, The Bay Course.

Costa Navarino is located in an unspoilt, breathtaking seaside landscape in the Greek region of Messinia, south-west Peloponnese. Costa Navarino philosophy is driven by a genuine desire to promote Messinia while protecting and It comprises a number of distinct sites featuring 5-star deluxe hotels, luxury residences, conference facilities, spa and thalassotherapy centres, signature golf courses, as well as a wide range of unique year-round activities for adults and families.

Getting there – During the summer season (May – September) flights are available to Kalamata a 45 minute transfer from the Costa Navarino resort from a number of UK Airlines including British Airways and Easy Jet. in the spring and autumn when the weather in the Messinia region is great for golf the best option is to fly to Athens and transfer by road to the resort.

Beachfront located by the coastline of The Dunes Beach, in the Greek region of Messinia, south-west Peloponnese, and overlooking the Ionian Sea, The Westin Resort Costa Navarino is the ideal destination for golfers of all levels. Two award-winning signature golf courses, The Dunes Course and The Bay Course, 18-hole and par-71 each, exceed your expectations and set Costa Navarino as the new luxury golf destination in Greece. In a landscape of diverse topography with spectacular sea and river views, both golf courses have been designed to create a unique rhythm and flow, perfectly balancing excitement, challenge and breathtaking vistas. Crafted across natural terrain to reflect the rugged outlines of the distant mountains – with several holes playing directly along the sea, these beautiful courses are also complemented by a well-appointed clubhouse for an unforgettable golfing experience.

COSTA NAVARINO GOLF

Costa Navarino offers to all guests a unique, world-class Greek golf experience deserving of its historical seafront setting. A premier golf destination featuring two 18-hole signature courses, dramatically different in terrain and characteristics, both however situated on seafront properties, boasting wonderful views in all directions.

The Dunes Course

The Seaside Dunes Course at Navarino Dunes, designed by former US Masters Champion and Ryder Cup Captain Bernhard Langer, in association with European Golf Design, opened in May 2010 and is the first signature golf course in Greece.

This 18-hole par-71 championship golf course includes some links-style features in areas closest to the sea. Parts of the course venture into olive and fruit groves, while several holes run along a small river. Combined with large undulating greens, wide fairways and steep faced pot bunkers, the links element of the course adds to its unique style and playability so that each of the 18 holes presents a matchless challenge.

The Dunes Course includes a full-size driving range and a short game practice area with the largest green in Europe, Dunes Clubhouse with a well-appointed dining and function areas, for pre and post round activities, a designated members lounge with terrace and an exclusive Pro shop.

With the majority of tees offering inspiring sea views, the 18-hole seaside Bay Course, designed by Robert Trent Jones II, meanders through three distinct natural landscapes. The Seaside, Canyon, and Grove holes provide striking contrasts that make for an intense and memorable golf round.

The Bay Course plays to a par of 71 from a variety of lengths designed to challenge golfers of various skill levels. Crafted across the natural terrain, the layout is offering panoramic sea and mountain views, having also some holes that play directly along the sea.

Venue of the Week

0
Every Two weeks we will be having a promotion to showcase a particular venue or a Golf Course or it could be a Hotel.

 

This weeks Showcase is Real Club de Golf Guadalmina

 

  Guadalmina was discovered in 1933 by Norberto Goizueta, who sailed with his family on his boat along the coast. He decided to live there. He first grew maize and after the war, a special type of grass, because he already had plans to build a golf course,

The grounds of Guadalmina is relatively narrow at the coast and go inland. Along the ground to the west, lies the Rio Guadalmina. Located on the coast, most of the holes are located further inland.

The golf club was founded in 1959. An 18-hole golf course right away was constructed which have only a few holes sea. The club now has over 2000 members from seventeen different nationalities.

In 1973, the second runway was built and the par-3 course was developed in 1989. The old hotel has been renovated and now has four stars. In 2008, the club received the predicate Royal. 

At Guadalimina there are 2 courses The North and the South Courses plus a Putting Green and Driving Range.

South Course

This is the oldest course, is renowned for its difficulty, thus making it more suitable for experienced players. Fairways are narrow and well protected by old trees requiring more straight shots.

South Guadalmina, the first 18 holes of the 45 that make up the golf course of Guadalmina, was opened in 1959 and is the second oldest in the Costa del Sol. It is characterised by the fairways that wind through the shade of ancient trees.

The fairways are wide and are virtually free of rough. In 2002 the Guadalmina Sur course was completely renovated and is now, to all intents and purposes, a new course with new tees including “Super-Seniors”. The greens were rebuilt and the fairways re-seeded.

White 6082 m Par 72
Yellow 5820 m Par 72
Blue 5431 m Par 72
Red 5031 m Par 72
Black 4376 m Par 72

North Course

Guadalmina North is considered less complicated than Guadalmina Sur. Although it covers more ground, is more undulating and contains more trees and water hazards.

The Guadalmina River divides the course from north to south and comes into play on the 17th. If this were not enough, there are lakes on holes 7, 9, 11 and 18. The course was designed by Folco Nardi and opened in 1972. It is shorter and Hiller than the south course and has more water obstacles. 

The course requires straight drives down the middle of the fairways as failure to do so may have one ending up in one of the numerous water hazards hidden in the rough. 

 

White 5600 m Par 72
Yellow 5470 m Par 72
Blue 4795 m Par 72
Red 4790 m Par 72

Besides the two 18 holes golf courses, Guadalmina complex offers a par 3 nine hole course. 

Also, there is the Driving range Real Club de Golf Guadalmina has a 40 bays grass driving range, 21 bays covered area, chipping and putting green and practice bunker.

The driving range and the practice areas, like the chipping and putting green make of Guadalmina a great reference of the Golf in Spain and Andalucía.

We have a number of trips planned through the winter months so instead of playing in the cold, rain and wind, sign up for a great golf holiday with our qualified PGA Professionals. A Spring Golf training academy is a great way of improving your game. instead of having a half-hour lesson every other week think how your game can improve with eight hours of structured lessons through the duration of the academy. Everything is covered from driving to the short game. once you have spent the morning with your PGA professional you can put what you have learned into practice on some of Europe’s top golf courses.

We organise a number of golf training academies throughout the winter each year and believe that as well as improving your game it’s also a great golf holiday. The weeks are open to golfers of all standards and dependent on your abilities the individual tuition is tailored to your needs. if you would like additional tuition on certain aspects of your game we will be happy to organise a special 1-2-1 session for you during the week. Numbers are restricted on each of our Golf training academies so you get the best possible attention and benefits out of your academy.

Penina Hotel & Golf Resort: The Home of Golf in the Algarve

Positioned in the western Algarve, Penina Hotel & Golf Resort is widely renowned as the true home of Portuguese golf. This is the only resort in Portugal to offer three golf courses… one of which, The Sir Henry Cotton Championship Course, is the first 18-hole course to have been constructed in the Algarve – and is legendary for some of the finest and most challenging golf in the world. Set in a stunning 360-acre estate, amidst an impressive array of natural landscape surroundings, the Penina Hotel & Golf Resort has been voted Portugal’s Leading Golf Resort by the World Travel Awards… whilst the marquee Sir Henry Cotton Championship Course has hosted 10 Portuguese Opens and scores of other prestigious tournaments.

Sir Henry Cotton Championship Course

Designed and completed in 1966 by the great Sir Henry Cotton, the course stands as a shining example of golfing architecture and one man’s passion for the great game of golf. Whether the former championship golfer had any inkling of the mark he was laying down when he first began implementing his vision upon the Algarve paddy fields from which his course sprung, we don’t know… what we do know is the staggering extent of the legacy that he created.

Known as one of the most challenging – and satisfying – courses in the whole of Portugal, this marquee course is as unforgiving as it is beautiful. Flanked by streams, ditches and water hazards, the course is maintained to the highest standard… and boasts an extensive array of subtle slopes, elevated greens and breath-taking scenery.

 

 

 

Resort Course

A great combination course that provides 9 holes of solid, but gentle, practice for beginners… as well as 18 holes of challenging golf for the more seasoned player. With 18 well thought out holes, this course follows the principles laid down by the father of Portuguese golf, Sir Henry Cotton: the perfect course for golfers of every level and ability.

Resort Course: Rules & Specifications

Holes: 9 or 18 Par: 35 or 71 Course Length – 9 holeWhite marks – 2987 metres (3267 yards)

Yellow marks – 2629 metres (2875 yards) Course Length – 18 hole:

White marks – 5964 metres (6522 yards)
Yellow marks – 5259 metres (5751 yards)

 

Academy course

Weaving its way through the fairways of the Championship Course, this executive 9-hole course has been specifically designed for the intermediate golfer. Great for all-around holiday golf and a very enjoyable round. With reasonable short greens, accuracy off the tee, along with approach shots, provide all players with a chance to practice their short game with aplomb.

Holes:Par: 30

Course Length:
1851 metres (2024 yards)

COSTA NAVARINO – A Greek Golfing Masterpiece

Golf in Greece? I was having a conversation a couple of years ago with a good friend and PGA Professional who was raving about a new golf resort development he had visited in Messinia Greece, a few hours drive from Athens. He assured me this was going to be something special in the future. We regularly hear about the next big thing in golf resorts at trade shows and in the travel press but sadly grand plans and reality don’t always come to fruition. Thankfully on this occasion, the grand plans of the Costa Navarino Resort have not only come to fruition they are being expanded to be  the best golf resort in the whole of Europe, and its pretty amazing already. Two golf courses are currently in operation and are both superb in design and setting with another two in the early construction stage this, without a doubt, has lived up to the initial excitement.

COSTA NAVARINO GOLF

Costa Navarino offers to all guests a unique, world-class Greek golf experience deserving of its historical seafront setting. A premier golf destination featuring two 18-hole signature courses, dramatically different in terrain and characteristics, both however situated on seafront properties, boasting wonderful views in all directions.

The Dunes Course

The seaside Dunes Course at Navarino Dunes, designed by former US Masters Champion and Ryder Cup Captain Bernhard Langer, in association with European Golf Design, opened in May 2010 and is the first signature golf course in Greece.

This 18-hole par-71 championship golf course includes some links-style features in areas closest to the sea. Parts of the course venture into olive and fruit groves, while several holes run along a small river. Combined with large undulating greens, wide fairways and steep faced pot bunkers, the links element of the course adds to its unique style and playability so that each of the 18 holes presents a matchless challenge.

The Dunes Course includes a full-size driving range and a short game practice area with the largest green in Europe, Dunes Clubhouse with a well-appointed dining and function areas, for pre and post round activities, a designated members lounge with terrace and an exclusive Pro shop.

The Bay Course

Open since October 2011, The Bay Course at Navarino Bay – just a few minutes from The Westin Resort Costa Navarino and next to the historic Navarino Bay, promises a different set of challenges and choices, with greater emphasis on strategic play and positional golf. With the majority of tees offering inspiring sea views, the 18-hole seaside Bay Course, designed by Robert Trent Jones II, meanders through three distinct natural landscapes. The Seaside, Canyon, and Grove holes provide striking contrasts that make for an intense and memorable golf round.

The Bay Course plays to a par of 71 from a variety of lengths designed to challenge golfers of various skill levels. Crafted across the natural terrain, the layout is offering panoramic sea and mountain views, having also some holes that play directly along the sea.

oitavos

History of Oitavos

oitavos-2The grandfather of today’s owner Miguel Champalimaud, Carlos Montez Champalimaud discovered this magnificent piece of land in 1908. With rare foresight, until his death in 1937, he worked to stabilise the sand dunes and plant pine forests to prepare for the development of a residential estate and tourist destination of exceptional quality.

Permits were secured by his son, Carlos Sommer Champalimaud in the 50’s and 60’s and the vision for Quinta da Marinha  was expanded. He constructed roads and developed the first home sites. Importantly, he drilled water wells in the adjacent hills and introduced sports facilities for horse racing and tennis.

When his son, Miguel Champalimaud (today’s owner) joined the family business he worked together with his father Carlos to secure final approvals over a 17 year period and since the death of his father, the family vision has come to fruition.

Over recent years, state of the art Health & Racket Club facilities, an Equestrian Center, and magnificent residential estates have been developed which add to the lure of Quinta da Marinha.

In 2001, the focal point of Quinta da Marinha was the Championship golf course Oitavos Golfe, designed by Arthur Hills to surround a 5-Star Hotel set to open in fall 2010. As the course became recognised internationally as a Links experience, the decision was made to change the name to Oitavos Dunes to reflect the natural sand dunes, impacts of the Ocean and Scottish like playing conditions, which all contribute to the way many view Oitavos Dunes as “Natural Links Golf.”

Today, Miguel and his four children remain committed to the family legacy and vow to continue to enhance the reputation and prestige of Quinta da Marinha in the years ahead.

Quinta-Do-Peru

Quinta do Peru golf course is located 30 min drive from Lisbon, in the Azeitão region between the castles of Sesimbra and Setubal, which is well known for its palaces, wines and cheeses. With the Arrabida mountains as its backdrop, the Quinta do Peru Golf Course, near Lisbon, Portugal, rated in the top 100 courses by Golf World magazine (2014), offers amateurs a pleasant game, whilst also presenting a challenge for professionals. With its many trees and wild flowers, the Quinta do Peru Golf Course parkland layout provides a good test with astute bunkering, true-rolling and quick greens. Amongst the holes of Quinta do Peru Golf Course, attention is drawn to the short 8th hole, with a lake in front of its green.
The next nine holes of Quinta do Peru golf course, near Lisbon, are even more difficult. Take for example hole number 12, a Par 4 that, despite not being very long, has a lake running beside the fairway down to the green. Then comes, what is probably the most difficult test on the course, hole 16, a Par 3 of 178 metres, where one needs to get over a lake to reach the green.
