The Lumine Golf & Beach Community
The Lumine Golf & Beach Community is a spectacular destination for golfers and perfect for families. Situated just a short drive from Reus Airport in Costa Daurada on Spain's north-east coast, an hour away from Barcelona, the resort shares grounds with port Aventura, the nation's first theme park, which also includes a water park, a collection of quality hotels that boast over 2,000 rooms.
The Hotel Port Aventura is just one of them and is noted for being awash with colour and had a lively buzz.. The hotel has two large pools, five restaurants on-site, large spacious rooms with wi-fi and the Wellness Centre where you can unwind after a day at the theme park or on the golf course in the steam room, sauna and jaquzzi.
There are also options for a stay within Lumine’s six neighbourhoods each with its own personality with multi-family dwellings, semi-detached houses and detached houses to choose from. Each option will provide you with space, freedom and peace to allow you to enjoy your stay in luxury.
The tranquility of the resort continues as you can drive about without the busy traffic jams of the nearby tourist traps to the Beach Club and the golf courses.
Lumine Golf Club
Lumine is a paradise for golfers, with spectacular views across the 170 hectares of grounds and towards the sea through the picturesque pine groves or ancient ruins. The resort features 45-holes of golf, including two 18-hole courses; the Lakes and the Hills each with their own clubhouse, in addition to the tremendous nine-hole layout - the Ruins.
Both the Lakes and Hills were designed by Greg Norman and feature their own grass driving range and specialised short game area along with putting green that replicates the conditions out on the golf course.
All of the courses have won the Audubon International Golf Signature Sanctuary Certificate which recognises Lumine as being environmentally stable meaning designers had to follow the blueprint when plotting their way around the Sequia wetlands area on the Lakes and the quarries, pine groves and archeological ruins on the Hills and Ruins.
In terms of those clubhouses, each host their own unique and fantastic clubhouses with an expansive veranda on the Lakes where you can relax watching the 9th and 18th greens and the fabulous balcony that overlooks the 18th green on the Hills which is built next to an ancient ruin. Enjoy a pre-round coffee or a much deserved post-round beverage along with bar snacks and an ever expanding food menu. A pro shop and reception are within both clubhouses for you to purchase Lumine memorabilia or enquire about another round. Club hire is also available.
Head Professional is Englishman Andy Gordon has been in the post for several years and made an instant impact when he first arrived by opening the Lumine Performance Centre. You’ll find all of the latest technology there and it’s where Andy conducts his teaching of pros and amateurs of all ages along. You can also take advantage of remote coaching in the form of video analysis for which he runs his professional eye over and adds in his voice over for easy learning. This feature can be downloaded to iOS or Android devices and used on the range for you to work on certain drills or swing changes that he has recommended.
The facilities are that good International teams use Lumine as a training base in the winter – Denmark, Sweden, Austria, Poland, and Netherlands have all trained there as well as some promising young professionals under Andy’s watchful eye.
The club itself has only 200 members, so there is a relaxed feel to the venue.
Lumine Beach Club
There was no better way to relax before and even more so after a round of golf than at the Beach Club. This tranquil spot is perfect to unwind and the peaceful surroundings offer great views of the Mediterranean Sea. Infinity pools have been built to make it feel like you’re bathing in the sea, which is less than a two minute walk to the bottom of the hill and onto the sand. If you’re staying at Lumine or have a tee time booked then access to the Beach Club is included. Towels are provided on arrival so all you have to do is sit back and relax.
The Lumine Restaurant is located on-site at the Beach Club and it’s where you can enjoy an evening beside the sea tasting its delicious Mediterranean cuisine.
Known as the ‘Golden Coast’ Costa Daurada is one of the main tourist destinations in Spain and located on the southern tip of Cataluyna. Away from the golf and theme parks its expansive coastline which expands 81 kilometres as far as Girona to the north east can be explored as well as historical villages, medieval monasteries and vineyards. The Roman Monuments of Tarragona, the region’s capital, is an official UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The region has 12 golf courses designed by some of the game’s biggest names. Adding onto Norman at Lumine are Bernhard Langer and Robert Trent Jones Jr who all have courses in the area. Golfers will flock to Catalunya for its typical Mediterranean climate with warm summer, mild winters and low rainfall.
Daily flights to Reus airport or neighbouring Barcelona airport operate from London Gatwick, London Heathrow, London Luton and London Stansted.
