LUMINE Mediterránea Beach & Golf Club: Leading Light of the Costa Daurada’s ‘Golden Coast’4 min read

Posted on: 4th Feb 2015

LUMINE’s stunning Lakes and Hills courses have played host to the Confederation of Professional Golf Fourball Championship for the past four years, and the Costa Daurada region continues to gain stature as must-visit destination for the discerning golfer.  Here we look at what makes Lumine and its home region so special…

Confederation of Professional Golf - Lumine - 10th_m

Just 40 minutes south of Barcelona or a 15-minute transfer from Barcelona’s Reus airport, golf in the Costa Daurada remains something of a well-kept secret.  Although that might not be the case for long because it really is something special. The renowned ‘Golden Coast’ already has some seriously good golf, including the Greg Norman-designed course at the 36-hole venue LUMINE Mediterránea Beach & Golf Club in Vila-Seca/La Pineda Platja – a state-of-the-art Spanish resort that is fast gaining a reputation for being one of Europe’s premier golfing destinations.

Although still in its infancy, the facility has already been showered with praise from international media and industry experts alike for its intriguing vision and authentic atmosphere.

With a broad variety of attractions, including 45-holes of championship golf, a variety of hotel options to suit all budgets, a first-class events and conference centre, restaurants serving modern Mediterranean cuisine and a magnificent Beach Club, LUMINE offers a luxurious haven in which to unwind and get away from the stresses of daily life.

Under the guard of the world’s leading management company, Troon Golf, this all-encompassing resort offers the finest in service and Spanish hospitality and is fully equipped to welcome golfing groups, families and business travellers.

With two international airports, Reus (10 min drive) and Barcelona, LUMINE can be easily accessed from anywhere in Europe and further afield.  With its North East coastline location, LUMINE boasts an ideal Mediterranean climate of long hot summers and short mild winters with the added benefit of a steady sea breeze that helps to cool the heat on summer evenings.


Confederation of Professional Golf - Lumine Hills 18th_smLUMINE is a true golfing haven, with 45-holes that offer a wide-variety of challenges for players of all skill levels. With Troon Golf at the helm alongside dedicated staff, guests are guaranteed pristine course conditioning, smooth and fast greens alongside first-class service and hospitality.  The three LUMINE courses are the first in Spain to be awarded the Audubon International Gold Signature Sanctuary Certificate, regarded worldwide as the kite mark for the most environmentally aware leisure developments.

For those looking to hone their skills during their stay, a team of professionals at The LUMINE Golf Performance Centre are on hand with numerous group courses for beginners right through to elite amateurs, and a Junior Academy introducing the game in a fun and relaxed environment.  The centre, previously base to their official winter training camps, has received rich praise from the Austrian and Finnish Golf Federation’s elite squads and is a popular choice for PGA Professionals leading group training.  LUMINE has also played host to the first ever Nordea Tour event to be held outside the Nordic region, with aspiring young Nordic professionals competing in the Nordea Tour Winter Series.


Once you step off the final green a wealth of world-class facilities await, including two fully equipped clubhouses and the luxurious LUMINE Beach Club. Situated on 1km of golden Spanish beach and pine-clad hillside above the sweeping bay of Tarragona’s Playa Del Llarga, it offers the perfect mix of style, relaxation, excitement and fine dining.  With nine swimming pools laid out on a series of terraces with luxury beds and loungers, this has become a fashionable venue for a young crowd as well as families and couples.

The Beach Club also provides the location for the award-winning LUMINE Restaurant.  Offering superb Mediterranean cuisine, head chef Eduardo Cuesta has already become somewhat of legend in the area.


Confederation of Professional Golf - Costa Daurada - Tarragona_mBeyond the serenity of the resort, the Costa Daurada region is brimming with leisure, cultural and historic attractions. Spain’s largest theme park and one of country’s biggest entertainment attractions, PortAventura, lies just 5km away.

To the north lies the Priorat wine region, the birthplace of exquisite reds that many wine writers and collectors consider to be Spain’s most elite.  The historic town of Tarragona is also just a 15 minute drive from LUMINE.  With 2,200 years of history and a Roman heritage preserved in dozens of monuments and architectural remains, it is also a UNESCO World Heritage site. Essential Roman highlights include the Amphitheatre, the Circus depicting the route of early chariot racing, a one-kilometer stretch of original walls and fortifications from the 2nd Century BC, and a temple with its surviving portico.

If it’s bustling nightlife or seaside sophistication you are looking for, then the choice is yours; with both the busy resort of Salou and the more peaceful marina port of Cambrils just a few minutes’ drive away. Both have superb beaches, facilities and some of the finest restaurants in the region.  For those wishing to experience the cosmopolitan city of Barcelona, it is just a 100km drive up the coast.
