La Hacienda Links course redesign wins Golf Inc. magazine's 'Renewal of the Year' award

19 September 2023

One of the most exciting golf course redesign projects in Europe in recent months has received worldwide recognition after the Links course at La Hacienda Links Golf Resort was included among the top winners in Golf Inc. magazine's 'Renewal of the Year' category, specifically in second place.

This annual award recognizes last year's best golf course renovation projects around the world. There are two categories, private courses and public courses, and Golf Inc.'s panel of industry professionals judges each entry based on three criteria: goal achievement, best playability and maintenance, and course aesthetics.

The works carried out, in which Garden & Golf and GTM Golf participated, included the remodeling of all tees, green and bunker complexes, and the redesign of several holes. The result, in the opinion of the editors of Golf Inc. magazine, stands out for its thoroughness and has improved the golf experience in general in a course now type links with stunning views of the Mediterranean Sea.

"We are very grateful and proud to receive this award, which is a recognition of the great work done by the excellent professionals who make up the La Hacienda team and by Kurtis Bowman, who has undoubtedly developed one of the most special courses in southern Europe. We are sure that all golfers who visit us will fall in love with the demanding course, the design of the impressive greens and bunkers and, of course, the exceptional views that surround us," says Javier Illán, president of Millennium Hospitality Real Estate.

"From the beginning, our goal was to create our own version of Pebble Beach in Spain... And I think we succeeded. Hacienda Links will now be mentioned with both the best courses in the Costa del Sol region and the best courses in Spain," adds Bowman.

The improvement of the Links course is part of a major refurbishment project being carried out at La Hacienda Links Golf Resort that is positioning it as a rising star of European golf in recent months.
