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:

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.

From our Visits, over the last 12 months, the Team has put together their top 10 Golf courses that we could recommend to you.

 
cascata

Cascata Golf Club(Las Vegas)

Cascata’s private gates open to a spectacular landscape that forms a regal backdrop for a golf experience like no other.

The par-72 course provides stunning vistas at every turn, including the 3,600-foot peak at Red Mountain, lush fairways, lakes, and streams. Class A PGA professionals attend to equipment, fashion or instruction needs, and players are accompanied on-course by a Tour-class caddie.

The Tuscan-style, 37,000-square-foot clubhouse offers an Old World ambience of unpretentious luxury, where attentive staff members oblige your every need. The dining room features an appetising menu sure to impress every taste. An excellent collection of rare and fine tobaccos is stocked in the cigar lounge’s custom-designed humidor.

The golf shop carries an array of equipment, stylish apparel and accessories. The men’s and ladies’ lounges are equipped with every conceivable amenity, including sink-side, flat-screen TVs.

 

Pinehurst No. 2, the centrepiece of Pinehurst Resort, remains one of the world’s most celebrated golf courses. It has served as the site for more single golf championships than any course in America and hosted back-to-back U.S. Open and U.S. Women’s Open Championships for the first time in 2014. The U.S. Open will return in 2024.

Opened in 1907, No. 2 was designed by Donald Ross, who called it “the fairest test of championship golf I have ever designed.” Ross was associated with the course for nearly a half-century, improving the course continually until his death in 1948. No. 2 is best known for its crowned, undulating greens, which are some of the most complex and widely hailed in the world. Ross believed in providing golfers with strategic choices, and Pinehurst No. 2 was intended to epitomise that philosophy.

 

 

The Idaho Club is home to Idaho’s only Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course. As one of the world’s preeminent golf course designers and the greatest golfer who ever played, Jack Nicklaus turned the design into an art form as he carefully weaved fairways and greens into this exceptional panoramic landscape. The result is an impressive 18-hole championship golf course that, through the combination of breath-taking beauty and picturesque course architecture, delivers an unforgettable golf experience.

Beyond the championship golf, you can hike along mountain wetlands frequented by moose, elk and deer, and relax your body and mind while enjoying breathtaking sunsets followed by the brilliant patterns of the Northern Lights.

These are only a few of the reasons the western edge of the Rocky Mountains has quickly become a favourite destination for adventure seekers. The splendour of the Idaho landscape, with its high mountain peaks, alpine lakes and lush forests, provides the perfect retreat for families, outdoor enthusiasts and those just looking to reconnect with nature.

 

Costa 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.

PGA Catalunya Resort is the culmination of more than 20 years’ work that continues to deliver on – and goes beyond – the vision of its founders. It incorporates two established championship-standard golf courses located near the picturesque town of Girona, Spain. The resort is owned by Irish entrepreneur Denis O’Brien and who also owns Quinta do Lago in Portugal.

This infrastructure includes two world-class golf courses – a Stadium course, recently voted the No.1 course in Spain for the third year in a row, and more gentle Tour course – a Golf Clubhouse, a Membership Clubhouse with private lounge, restaurant, and an exceptional Residents Club for owners, complete with indoor and outdoor swimming pool & children’s pool, indoor spa pool, tennis courts, fitness centre and treatment rooms.

 

 

montecastallio

Monecastallio – (Spain)

18 hole golf course, designed by Jack Nicklaus and considered as one of the best golf courses in Europe. The course was the home of the Volvo Masters for 5 consecutive years 1997-2001 and of Peugeot Tour of Spain during 3 years 2001-2003. It has also hosted in 2009, the Barcelo PGA Tour of Spain.

Montecastillo is one of Spain’s best value golf resorts and owned by Barcelo Hotels, who have already invested heavily in bringing the golf course back to its very best condition, with new bunkering which is great news, as this really is a Jack Nicklaus masterpiece. The hotel lies to the right-hand side of the spectacular cliff top18th hole, where a slice will put you out of bounds and into the hotel gardens! 

The course has hosted the Volvo Masters 3 times and is in close proximity to the lovely historic town of Jerez, which is famous for its wine and sherry cellars. The golf clubhouse is set in an old Castillo, with a superb spa treatment centre and a great indoor swimming pool. 

 

Royal Lytham & St Anne’s Golf Club was founded in 1886 and the present Course constructed in 1897. The Clubhouse celebrated its Centenary in 1998. It is one of the premier links courses in the world, host to ten Open Championships, two Ryder Cups and numerous other major tournaments including the Women’s and Seniors Open Championships. Northern hospitality has always been famous and Royal Lytham leads the way. You will be made very welcome.

The layout of Royal Lytham & St Annes has remained faithful to the original created by the Club’s first Professional, George Lowe, over a century ago. The only significant changes were made in 1919 when the club asked Harry Colt, the pre-eminent Course Designer of the time to make recommendations for improvement. It is renowned as a Course on which is it hard to scramble a good score, after all, there are 206 bunkers peppering the Fairways and surrounding the Greens. It may not be the longest of courses but it is one where careful thought and accurate shots are required.

 

Onyria P Golf  – links and parkland in a spectacular seaside setting  Within the natural amphitheatre of the Bay of Lagos, Robert Trent Jones II has fashioned Europe’s next great golf course, Onyria Palmares Golf. The brief given to this exceptional American golf course designer was to craft a 27-hole golf course which maximised the potential of its extraordinary environment.  The result is a golf course of breathtaking natural beauty which is a delight to play. The course opened 18 holes for play in October 2010 and the full 27 last June 2011 and it has matured nicely.

Robert Trent Jones II designed the golf course with the highest level of international tournament golf in mind as well as a pleasurable golf experience for members and tourists alike.  There is plenty of challenge if that’s what you want – especially from the white tees! Onyria Palmares Golf is composed of three returning nine-hole loops that can be played in any sequence. The genius in the routeing is that, depending on the sequence of play, each golf experience is different.  Each nine-hole loop has its own character and ambience.

 

In May 1990, the Real Novo Sancti Petri Golf Club started its journey with 27 holes, and today it has become one of the best golf courses in Europe. December of that year saw the official inauguration of the Clubhouse in the presence of HRH the Count of Barcelona, representatives of public authorities, founder members, and its designer, Severing Ballesteros.

Since that day, the Real Novo Sancti Petri Golf Club has changed considerably. Today it boasts a Golf Academy, Jack Nicklaus Academy, and even a children’s club. In 2000, the club was extended to 9 holes to complete the 2 full rounds you can currently play, named Mar (sea) and Pinos y Centro (pines and centre), totalling 36 holes. What is more, Real Novo Sancti Petri Golf Club offers 18 further holes, providing its clients with a total of 3 rounds of golf (all par 72) with different characteristics, that is to say, 54 holes in all. The practice course has been extended and equipped with sheltered facilities. Today it has more than 150 training spaces. They are 300 metres long, with several areas for chipping with a bunker, a pitch-and-putt course and 3 short holes, as well as 4 putting greens. Real Novo Sancti Petri Golf Club has undoubtedly some of the highest-quality practice facilities in the south of Spain

North Granite Ridge – (Canada)

Designing this golf course within this type of landscape was truly inspiring. The variety of golf holes that play through these boulders and trees or utilise the elevations provided by the granite ridges is second to none. It was easy to find fabulous green sites framed by trees and granite without altering the terrain. A number of tee decks are perched on the top of these granite ridges, providing long-range vistas over the forest, without a road to be seen or heard… it was beyond compare.

If there is a hidden gem in the world of golf, then North Granite Ridge sparkles brightly. It is up to you to come and discover this place for yourself.

 

 

 

 

We hope you all enjoy the Christmas and New Year celebrations and look forward to seeing you next year. 

 

Neil, Rob, Rachel, Kelly, Kevin

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.

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.

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.

OUR SPECIAL OFFER PACKAGE INCLUDES

 

  • 3 Nights stay in a superior loft – open plan suite
  • Complimentary Buffet Breakfast

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.

Cadiz Trip 2016

0

2016 Trip to Andalucia 

 

Our recent trip was to Cadiz which is in the region of Andalucia which is a largely autonomous region of hills, rivers and farmland bordering Spain’s southern coast. It was under Moorish rule from the 8th-15th centuries, a legacy that shows in its architecture, including such landmarks as the Alcázar castle in Seville, the capital city, as well as Córdoba’s Mezquita Mosque-Cathedral and Granada’s Alhambra palace.

map-andalucia

 

We visited the province of Cadiz which has over 25 golf courses, stretching round the southern tip of Andalucia which include parts of the Costa Del Sol and Costa de la Luz, for some time this area has been a firm favourite for golf, and the great selection of golf courses all around the coast and inland gives you a fantastic choice.

1-2

For those who love both golf and the sea.  Playing Parador De Malaga Golf  is a great choice, The hotel is located on the water, with direct access to a magnificent beach of soft white sand. You will also enjoy the swimming pool and tennis court.

The course itself was excellent and the hospitality was very good. the only thing I didn’t like was the planes flying over as it is very close to the airport. But what a great start to the week.

 

Please visit our website www.qualitygolfdestinations.co.uk 

 

 

 

In the afternoon of Wednesday, we played at the Alcaidesa Links golf course which was designed by Peter Allis and Clive Clark, and built in 1992, on the Costa del Sol, half way between Sotogrande and Gibraltar. The course has been the venue f1-27or a number of professional tournaments.

This is the only links course in southern Spain and the most southerly in Europe. It has  excellent views of the sea and the Rock of Gibraltar.

There is also a new 18 hole heathland course a little further inland which opened in 2007. The Links course is par 72, with a length of 5,020 to 5,846m.
The Heathland course is par 72 with a length of 5272 to 6373m

Facilities include a golf academy, driving range, practice bunker, restaurant. Accommodation is available. 

 

 

 

1-55Thursday we set off to play at Montecastillo Golf Club which is 1.5 km from the legendary Circuito de Jerez motor racing track, this upscale golf resort is also 13 km from the Moorish Alcazar of Jerez de la Frontera and 9 km from Jerez Airport.

Refined rooms with chic decor feature free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs, and minibars. Upgraded rooms have sitting areas and/or terraces with golf course views, while suites add separate lounges. Modern villas provide kitchens and gardens. Room service is offered 24/7.

Free perks include breakfast and green fees. There are also 2 stylish restaurants, casual bars and a seasonal vegan eatery, as well as an 18-hole golf course, and a spa with indoor and outdoor pools.

 

This hotel and golf course should be in my opinion a definite visit if you are in the Cadiz area, the facilities and the hotel are one of the best in the area.1-107

It’s an 18-hole, 72-par golf course, designed by Jack Nicklaus, which hosted the Volvo Masters for 5 consecutive years and the Peugeot Tour 3. Driving range, putting and chipping greens. Golf academy. Free lockers at the golf course.

1-120If you’re staying at the Barcelo Montecastillo Golf & Spa resort or in the area of Jerez then you must visit the Winery Urium & Sherry tasting,1-136

It is a family-owned bodega located in the centre of Jerez. The location, geographical orientation and the materials used in its construction all combine to ensure optimum conditions for wine maturation and ageing.

Bodegas Urium is a very old sacristy winery which boasts the full range of Jerez wines. We cherish the traditions, skills, processes and know-how of the wine-makers of Jerez and aspire to produce only the finest quality wines, stylishly and elegantly presented.

 

Our passion for sherry led us to establish a small family-owned bodega in the historic centre of Jerez. Bodegas Urium is the result of a lengthy and painstaking process of selection featuring wines from the most important soleras of the wine region of Jerez.

1-121The special situation and orientation of the bodega, as well as the materials used to construct its walls create a microclimate environment, which is essential to the maturing and aging of the wines.

Our bodega is a sacristy and houses the entire range of very old Sherry wines. Every year, an exclusively limited series of these wines, which have previously received the V.O.R.S. designation (wines that are at least 30 years old) are bottled.

We have preserved the ancient winemaking traditions of the bodegas from Jerez, and the skilful processes used by the expert winemakers. We take pride in our professionalism and attention to detail, as well as in the excellence of the wines and the elegance of our presentation.

 

Our next visit was to the Villanueva Golf Resort, we only played 9 holes but this was another course that’s worth a visit. 1-149

The Villanueva Golf Course is located in Puerto Real, a small town 10 minutes away from the city of Cadiz and only 2 kilometres away from the sea, and offers an 18-hole, par 72 golf course that will delight even the most demanding golfers.

This modern 6220-metre course opened in 2006 and is situated in Puerto Real, close to the city of Cadiz. It is close to the sea and set in beautiful surroundings.

The course has very large greens and Bermuda fairways all in pristine condition. The five lakes, 90 bunkers, and variable tee-positions give this course plenty to test the seasoned golfer.

 

On Friday we had the chance to enter the Andalucia Sol cup, which was played at the superb Golf Club, Iberostar Real Nova Sancti Petri Golf Club.

sancti-petri-hills-golf-courseIn May 1990, the Real Novo Sancti Petri Golf Club started its journey with 27 holes, and today it has become one of the best golf courses in Europe. December of that year saw the official inauguration of the Clubhouse in the presence of HRH the Count of Barcelona, representatives of public authorities, founder members, and its designer, Severiano Ballesteros.

Since that day, the Real Novo Sancti Petri Golf Club has changed considerably. Today it boasts a Golf Academy, Jack Nicklaus Academy, and even a children’s club. In 2000, the club was extended to sanctri-petri-29 holes to complete the 2 full rounds you can currently play, named Mar (sea) and Pinos y Centro (pines and centre), totalling 36 holes. What is more, Real Novo Sancti Petri Golf Club offers 18 further holes, providing its clients with a total of 3 rounds of golf (all par 72) with different characteristics, that is to say,54 holes in all. The practice course has been extended and equipped with sheltered facilities. Today it has more than 150 training spaces. They are 300 metres long, with several areas for chipping with a bunker, a pitch-and-putt course and 3 short holes, as well as 4 putting greens. Real Novo Sancti Petri Golf Club has undoubtedly some of the highest-quality practice facilities in the south of Spain.

The Sol Cup was played on the B course and the winner was Russ Ashman from Rhodium Events & Hospitality with a superb 33 pts 2nd was Bill Anslow from Grey owl Golf with 32Pts and 3rd was Bryan Moore from Golf fish with 31pts, i managed to score 25pts, well done to everyone who entered.

  5. Gives you time to plan your golf holiday with the experts

2017 Golf group trips - where will you be going

Where will you be going in 2017 ?

 

You would be amazed how many people think that Spring and Autumn are quiet months around Europe’s sunnier resorts. Although many hotels are quieter at these times the ones in the best locations can still be busy. It’s not only golfers who want to get away for early or late sunshine, it’s a very popular time for people not tied to the school holidays or for those people who want to get away but don’t want the high temperatures of the summer months.

Although places like the Costa Del Sol or Algarve seem to have golf courses at every turn in fact compared to the UK there are still relatively few. The whole of Spain’s Andalucía region stretching 450 miles along the cost from the Portuguese border in the west, across southern Spain’s Costa del Sol to Northern Almeria in the east has 97 golf clubs, that’s 2 less than golf clubs affiliated to the Cheshire Golf Union one of the UK’s smaller counties. Which is why in the prime golf season, when golfers from not only the UK but most of northern Europe converge to the southern resorts, tee times can be at a premium.

Golf in the Andalucía region is very popular so why not consider an alternative. The Costa Blanca (Alicante), Costa Daurada (South of Barcelona) or Costa Brava ( North of Barcelona) In these regions not so noted for their golf you can find some of Spain’s best courses (PGA Catalunya, El Prat, Lumine and Las Colinas to name a few). Even in the Andalucía region it self the Costa del luz region around Cadiz offers some excellent value for money options.

 

2017 Golf Group Trip - Las Colinas

Las Colinas Golf Club in Spain’s Costa Blanca

 

The same can be said for the Algarve, golf continues after Vilamoura and the Western Algarve has some great options. Palmares Golf Club being a 27 hole Robert Trent Jones jnr gem while Penina Henry Cotton Championship, the original course on the Algarve still holds its own as one of the best 50 years after its opening. Portugal’s capital city of Lisbon is easy to fly to and also has a great selection of courses both north and south of the city, a great road network and a superb choice of accommodation, not to mention the year round nightlife. Portugal’s oldest courses can be found around the City. Both Estoril and Lisbon Golf Club’s were formed in the 1920’s so will soon be celebrated their centenaries’. Combine this with great courses such as Oitavos Dunes, Praia del Rey and Penha Longa, all regular Portuguese Open venues  and a host of local gems which are great value for money.

 

If you don’t want to travel so far then we can recommend many great trips nearer to home. Explore the links golf of North West Ireland, Open Courses in Scotland or England, or simply some great courses you may never have heard of but are well worth visiting. We have organised trips to over 20 countries around the world so if your stuck for ideas ask for recommendations.

The hotel has a Andalusian hacienda type feel to it and is a low level property with most of the facilities on the top floor. We visit many hotels every year, and you soon find that one hotel room looks remarkably like the next so its very refreshing when you visit somewhere that still has some wonderful old school charm whilst still having all the mod con’s you come to expect in a quality resort.
Rio Real Golf Hotel - Pool Area  Rio Real Golf Hotel Reception   Rio Real Golf Hotel - Golf

All rooms have great views of the 11th hole from the large balconies, the superior rooms are very well appointed and decorated in a unique style inviting rest and relaxation in the most demanding of guests. The bathroom is a combination of ceramics, wood and marble, offering his and hers sinks and a spacious ergonomic bathtub. Each room offers TV, minibar, free WIFI and a safe, as well as beds that inspire rest and relaxation.

For a special occasion or for those people who like a bit more space to relax, both the “birdie” and “eagle” suites will not disappoint in the slightest. The “Albertros” suite is the rarest of the golfing birds and it is the perfect choice for a luxurious get-away. Featuring more than 100 sq. m of space and views out over the golf course from its spectacular terrace. This bedroom is all about comfort, with a living room for catching up on and enjoying the day’s activities, a fireplace and a Jacuzzi bath that have been specially designed to allow a relaxing soak after your round of golf.

The hall ways leading to the rooms are lined with photo’s (some with a few very famous faces in) from 50 years ago when Marbella became one of the most hip place to be seen in Europe. The town still has a very chic feel to it and is one of the best places to shop with its tax free shopping zone. The hotel’s restaurant serves a very good a la carte breakfast, (as well as lunch and dinner) so everything comes to you freshly cooked and exactly to your liking. With all of Marbella’s restaurants and bars within a few minutes drive by taxi your evenings will certainly have plenty of options.

To compliment the rooms the hotel has a small spa area where treatments and massages can be arranged by appointment and the hotel also has a very attractive pool area which offers hotel guests the maximum level of privacy. Adjacent you will find a solarium where you can rest and relax, and the pool bar offers drinks and light snacks to enhance your poolside chill time.

The Rio Real Golf Hotel on site course at first view looks relatively flat, but don’t be fooled by this as it slowly winds it way up the valley. One of the features that stands out and sets it apart from many other of the Marbella courses is the maturity of the trees that line the fairways. Although there is little rough on the course and a wayward tee shot is usually quite easily found, the size of the trees make them a hazard in their own right and a low pitch and run back to the fairway is the players only sensible option. Water comes into play on a few holes at Rio Real but it is a major factor of the 12th, one of the course’s signature holes.

Rio Real Golf Hotel Marbella course

Playing a little over 150 yards from the normal tees (175 yards from the back tee) water comes in to play on three sides of this short par 3, it’s an intimidating tee shot and could possibly be the inspiration to many other par three designs around the world.

To summarise Rio Real Golf hotel is a perfect retreat for the golfer who doesn’t want to be in the hustle and bustle of beach life on the Costa del Sol, especially for those who like the finer details which make this such a lovely location to stay and play. We are pleased to give Rio Real Golf Hotel Marbella our recommended hotel status.

Bordeaux Special Feature

1

Bordeaux, Aquitaine, Gironde and the Dordogne –

 

Golf, Gourmet Meals, Sightseeing and Wine Tasting

Bordaeux_1

 

Too many UK travellers the Bordeaux, Aquitaine, Gironde and Dordogne regions means fine quality wines and wonderful scenery. Indeed the British love for the Dordogne region has resulted in more living there than on the Costa del Sol.  What most people don’t realise is these regions have an up and coming reputation for quality golf. Quality Golf Destinations Managing Director Neil Adams spent time re-acquainting himself with the region (and its wine) and also trying out the golf on offer at Chateau des Vigiers. This region is the perfect destination for a vacation taken in between April and October.

 

Getting There

 

To visit the regions of Bordeaux, Aquitaine and the Dordogne you have two main choices. You can drive, using ferry crossings from Portsmouth to St. Malo/ Caen (most direct route downFrance), or you can use the cross channel services and head down from there. The drive from St. Malo/ Caen takes around 6 hours and the Auto routes are very good, (beware of speed traps and tolls). You can also fly into Bordeaux or Bergerac and hire a car from either.

 

Bordeaux_2

Bordeaux

Bordeaux is the sixth largest city in France with a population of over 250,000. It is the capital of the Aquitaine region, as well as the prefecture of the Gironde department. Bordeaux is a port city on the Garonne River. Bordeaux is the world’s major wine industry capital. It is home to the world’s main wine fair, Vinexpo, while the wine economy in the metro area moves 14.5 billion Euros each year. Bordeaux wine has been produced in the region since the eighth century.

Bordeaux is a truly magnificent city with fantastic architecture and lots of café’s, restaurant and bars along the river side.  

 

Bergerac

Bergerac is a commune and a sub-prefecture of the Dordogne department in south-westernFrance. With a population of around 30,000, Bergerac is most people’s idea of a regional French town. It is the centre of a very distinguished wine region and some of the most famous vineyards in France. These include: Bergerac, Côtes-de-Bergerac, Côtes de Montravel, Haut-Montravel, Saussignac, Monbazillac, Pécharmant and Rosette.

 

 


Ch
âteau des Vigiers

Dating back to 1597, Château des Vigiers is an internationally renowned Hotel, Golf & Country Club situated in the Dordogne, South West France, just 20 minutes west of Bergerac Airport and an hour east of Bordeaux. Set in 450 acres of stunning countryside, in the heart of the wine districts of the Dordogne, Château des Vigiers offers an exceptional place in which to unwind and relax.

Having seen the web-site, www.vigiers.com I was really looking forward to visiting this golf complex set around a French Château. I flew from Birmingham to Bordeaux (really simple transfer of less than 2 hours), picking up my hire car and remembering to drive on the right side of the road! I arrived in Château des Vigiers in little over an hour and its pictures don’t lie. The Château looks stunning and the golf course holes that surround it just add to the splendour.

 

The Château forms the centrepiece of a spectacular 27 hole golf course designed by Donald Steel who is considered one of the very best “natural” golf course architects. The original 18 hole golf course opened in 1991 and is set amidst plum orchards, oak woods, lakes and vineyards. In 2008 a further 9 hole course was opened. It was also created by Donald Steel and was designed to integrate beautifully into the existing course. The result was three 9 hole loops which now combine to form three different 18 hole combinations. The three courses are the Valley, Lakes and Vines, all about the same length. I played the Valley and the Vines and had a tour of the Lakes course with the Golf Professional, Matthew Storm, who also showed me around the spacious practice facility and equally spacious pro shop.

 

My round was the usual mixed bag, but I consoled myself with the magnificent views and the prospect of a trip into Saint-Émilion later in the day!! Both courses were sufficiently tough off the back tees to challenge the best golfers but had generous fairways to suit us normal human beings.

 

The four star accommodation at Château des Vigiers is spread over three unique buildings. The historic Château was restored to its former glory in 1992 and offers 25 individually decorated rooms. “Les Dependances”, created in 1995, uses traditional materials and has a total of 22 rooms and suites. The “Relais des Vigiers”, built to strict “eco friendly” standards, offers 40 spacious rooms which were designed with golfers and families in mind. There are 3 restaurants on-site, plus a wonderful terrace by the club house that overlooks the Château and the closing holes on the Lakes & Vines courses.

I stayed in a room in the Relais and it was very comfortable and provided all the facilities to make my stay very welcoming.

The rooms in the main Château were everything the publicity said about them, really wonderful.

 

The Wine Experience

Wine was always going to play an important part of this trip. So when offered the opportunity to tour St Émilion I just couldn’t say no. I have no idea how long the journey takes, (probably less than 40 minutes), as I was lost in the beauty of the vineyards, cornfields and something I was surprised to see, the tobacco fields. Apparently tobacco was one of the major crops around this region and although little production remains, the legacy for us all to see is the tall wooden buildings dotted around the landscape. These buildings are of course tobacco drying barns, (most gradually decaying but some preserved and being used for all manner of different things).

Bordeaux_3

Saint-Émilion is one of the principal red wine areas of Bordeaux along with the Médoc, Gravesand Pomerol. With a population of less than 3,000 it is the quintessential French town. Saint-Émilion wine obviously dominates the whole town and it’s the only place I have seen where you can buy Saint-Émilion Gran Cru by the glass! (Well I had to try it as it would be rude not to) I did a tour of the vineyards by train and it was fascinating to see all the famous Château names previously only seen on expensive bottles back home.

 

The visit was sadly over all too quickly and armed with a couple of named Gran Cru bottles it was back to Château Vigiers for dinner in the restaurant in the Château.

 

Château Vigiers offers a number of packages that include gourmet dinners, tours of Saint-Émilion and Monbazillac, coupled with golf and accommodation (bed & breakfast). All packages are based on self-drive (car hire & flights can be included in our packages).
