After reaching an agreement of renewal and sharing the vision for the future, the Club is happy to see that Mats and Gabriella Lindström will continue the management of the Pro Shop.
News for next year is that the Club will take over the operation of the Driving range and Academy from 1st January 2018. Apart from continuing with the services already offered, the Academy will develop new products for the whole family, such as: Junior Academy, Summer Camps and Ladies group lessons.
“We are very happy about the good communication we have had with Mats over the last few months regarding the renewal agreement for the Pro Shop and excited about the new Academy concept we will have the next year. Mats ‘experience has been very helpful to determine the direction to be taken for the Pro Shop and Academy. Coming to the driving range at Los Naranjos will be a differentiated experience that we hope members and visitors will welcome”, said Julian Romaguera, General Manager of the club.
Los Naranjos will start the renovation work of the driving range from 16th August 2017 and will finish approximately by the end of September. During this time, the driving range will remain open but there might be some limitations in the distance of hits to ensure the safety of the workers.
The first step in the renovation is the building of 8 artificial green targets, similar to the ones shown in the photos below and of the drainage system for a correct direction of the water flow.
These artificial grass greens and bunkers will be done by the company Best Garden S.L and will require less maintenance than a normal green while maintaining an optimum quality image all year around. Each green will also have 2-4 different pin positions to offer a new practice challenge each week.
These investments will also allow the club to organize different skill challenge events for the enjoyment for members and guests.
The second step, is to install two tee liners, one at the back of the members area and another one in front the visitors’ area. The use of these tee liners will support the maintenance of the different natural grass platforms while still offering a quality practice area to members and guests.
