Lumine Resort is located 15 km south of Tarragona and 115 km south from Barcelona. The resort is well known due to its theme parks Portaventura and Ferrari Land, and its owned by one of the largest banks in Spain, with a large real estate area (2.800 homes) and several hotels.
In 2004 the developer company hired our team to prepare a routing plan and planning designs for a 45 hole golf course.
The Ruins Course is designed by Greg Norman Golf Course design Company, and is set in an area between the main hill and the highway, having its name given due to the Roman road and buildings found out during the construction works.
Our team was awarded the contract for preparing the project for permitting, based on GNGCD design documents, managed permitting, selected contractors, and managed golf course construction in full coordination with GNGCD representatives.
Golf course construction started in 2006 being the course opened in 2008.
The golf course is a 9 hole 34 par, 2.515 meter course, with some lagoons, one of them being the main reservoir for irrigation, and having the general pumping station (for the 45 holes) nearby the lake.
Being a commercial course, these 9 holes were designed to be a sort of Golf Academy for newcomers to the game, with varied holes and a nice landscape and setup. Holes both short and long, wide and narrow, can be find, creating a nice golf experience for all levels of players.
