Lumine Mediterránea Beach & Golf Community will continue as host of the European Tour Qualifying School Final Stage for the next two years.
Following a successful first staging of Final Stage last season, a deal has been struck which guarantees the Spanish venue will host the climax of Q-School until the end of 2019.
Among the most unique and high stakes events in golf, Q-School has helped unearth some of golf’s greatest players, while also attracting the attention of a worldwide audience.
A popular venue among players and fans alike, Lumine Mediterránea Beach & Golf Community’s stunning Hills and Lakes Courses will once again pose a tough test for the European Tour hopefuls over six dramatic days in Tarragona.
“We are thrilled to be chosen by the European Tour as host venue for the Final Stage of Qualifying School in 2018 and 2019,” said Calle Carlsson, General Manager of Lumine Mediterránea Beach & Golf Community.
“The selection of Lumine for these prestigious events is another great milestone for everyone at the club and we are thoroughly looking forward to showcasing once again why Lumine has become one of Europe’s most popular destinations.”
Lumine Golf Club has been an integral part of Q-School since 2012, previously hosting the Second Stage of the three-stage competition on five occasions.
Led by José Tomas Agulló, the maintenance team are well-versed in tournament preparations, with the responsibility of hosting Final Stage for the first time in 2017 affording the team the opportunity to showcase the venue.
Mike Stewart, Qualifying School Director, said: “Lumine provided a terrific setting for Qualifying School Final Stage in 2017 and we are delighted to be able to confirm it will once again host what is one of the world’s most dramatic sporting events.
“The quality of both golf courses, coupled with Lumine’s outstanding practice facilities and service, resulted in wide praise from all competitors and we look forward to working with Calle and his team on delivering more highly successful events over the coming years.”
Like last year’s Final Stage, the Greg Norman-designed Lakes Course, and Lumine’s other 18-hole layout, the Hills Course, will set the stage for proceedings, offering a varied test across both challenging championship courses.
