Jiménez To Design New Short Game Facility

Jiménez To Design New Short Game Facility

Famous golfer, Miguel Ángel Jiménez, is reportedly set to join forces with one of Spain’s best golf courses, Las Colinas Golf & Country Club, to oversee the design of a new short game facility.

The 21-time European Tour winner made the decision to aid in the course’s construction after a preliminary visit earlier this year.

The project, scheduled for completion in late 2017, will require Jiménez to take time out of his sporting schedule. The ambitious plans for the facility reveal that it will be situated 200 meters from the driving range and 300 meters for the luxurious clubhouse.

Las Colinas Golf & Country Club is a highly rated course amongst the golfing community and arguably one of the best in Europe. The country club was named Spain’s Best Golf Course for the second year running at the World Golf Awards in 2016 and chosen as Spain’s Leading Villa Resort at the 2016 World Travel Awards.

Its Par 71 18-hole layout has contributed to its stellar reputation, along with its year-round championship conditioning services.

The exciting layout, along with Miguel Ángel Jiménez’s contributions, is set to elevate the area as one of the best short game facilities in Europe. Jiménez will work directly with the management team at Las Colinas, sharing his ideas and knowledge to fuel the development of the facility. This will also involve liaising with the director of golf and operations, Sean Corte-Real.

“Work is already underway and I look forward to watching the development progress over the coming months and to opening the Las Colinas short game facility in the autumn,” Jiménez remarked.

The Spanish pro golfer pointed out that, while the course will have the most up-to-date features, it can be enjoyed by anybody—regardless of their skill level.

“I hope that players of all abilities will enjoy the new practice area,” he added.

When questioned on the reasoning behind the partnership, Jiménez stated: “Las Colinas Golf & Country Club is very quickly establishing a reputation as one of the best new golf developments in Europe, winning many awards already and also being selected by the European Tour as a Qualifying School location.”

“And so you can imagine I was extremely honored to be asked by the Owners of the Club to design a short game area and very happy to put my name to the new practice facility,” he said.

More details of the new short game facility at Las Colinas will be unveiled later this year, closer to the completion date.
