Dom Pedro Golf Vilamoura aces Portugal’s golf resort of the year award

 

 

 Dom Pedro Golf Vilamoura has secured its first recognition since DETAILS took over its management, winning Golf Resort of the Year in Portugal at the 2024 IAGTO (International Association of Golf Travel Operators) awards.

 

The win reinforces the committed work the hospitality, sports, and leisure management company has undertaken across the Dom Pedro Golf & Hotels Collection portfolio in Vilamoura since its acquisition by Arrow Global last year.

 

A total of 660 golf tour operators worldwide voted for their best golf courses, resorts, and destinations which delivered outstanding service to their clients, with the Algarve resort holding off a challenge from several of Portugal’s most established golf properties.

 

DETAILS has set its sights on confirming Dom Pedro Golf Vilamoura as one of Europe’s finest leisure resorts, aiming to reposition it among the industry’s elite. Significant developments are currently in progress across the wider Dom Pedro portfolio in Vilamoura.

 

 

Designed by Frank Pennink, the Old Course, which is the second oldest in Portugal, has already undergone significant change in a bid to attract premium golfers to the tee boxes of this esteemed golf destination.

 

Providing guests easy access to multiple golf facilities within a 4km radius of each other, the resort also boasts the Victoria, Laguna, Millenium and Pinhal courses. The Victoria, which hosted the European Tour’s Portugal Masters between 2007 and 2022 is currently closed undergoing renovation before re-opening in 2025.

 

Peter Walton, CEO – International Association of Golf Travel Operators said: ‘Dom Pedro Golf Vilamoura has always been a standout resort in a region blessed with more than its fair share of stunning venues. There are ambitious plans afoot, but we recognised that the resort is already in the top drawer when it comes to sophisticated, 360 facilities and hospitality.’

 

Nuno Sepulveda, Co-Chief Executive Officer at DETAILS – Hospitality, Sports, Leisure, said: “I am immensely proud of our team's dedication and commitment, which has culminated in our recent win of the prestigious IAGTO Golf Resort of the Year 2024 – Portugal award.

 

                                                  


 

“This accolade underscores our pursuit of excellence in delivering unparalleled experiences to our guests. We want to elevate this resort to new heights and solidify our position as a leading destination in the world of golf and hospitality."

 

In the Algarve, the Dom Pedro portfolio also includes the Dom Pedro Portobelo, Dom Pedro Marina and Dom Pedro Vilamoura hotels, as well as the Pinhal, Laguna and Millenium golf courses, all of which fall under the management expertise of DETAILS.

 

Over the next two years, DETAILS has many more developments planned, all to be announced in due course.

GALVIN GREEN UNVEILS THE SKY IS THE LIMIT CAPSULE COLLECTION

                           


Leading premium high-tech golf apparel brand Galvin Green has today unveiled its vibrant THE SKY IS THE LIMIT capsule collection of top-quality garments inspired by radiant clear blue skies that golfers often dream of playing under.

 

The latest limited-edition range from the Swedish brand features six fashionable VENTIL8™ PLUS shirts, a pair of shorts and three comfortable INSULA™ pieces in the glacial Alaskan Blue colour, along with lighter shades of White and Cool Grey to deliver a striking look.

 

Aimed at serious golfers seeking ultimate breathability, the shirts include the bold MIO, highly textured MATE, MIKLOS, MO, and MIRACLE styles, plus the classic MARCELO. The PERCY shorts complete the line-up for warm and sunny days, while the DAWSON and DION sweaters and DEL vest provide additional warmth when the temperature drops.

 

“These styles have really been brought to life through the use of the cool Alaskan Blue colour that our eyes seamlessly absorb,” said Designer Batur Raza Muhammad. “Blue continues to be such a popular with golfers, so we’ve applied it to each garment in this collection to get players excited about summer golfing months ahead,” he added.

 

Working with responsibly sourced fabrics, Galvin Green ensures that the garments provide best-in-class and long-lasting performance, while minimising the social and environmental impact in the manufacturing process.

 

The flagship MATE shirt with a nuts & bolts theme and 3-D print MIO style are reminiscent of comic book franchises and superheroes to deliver a truly individual look and both come in Alaskan Blue with a contrasting collar and sleeve ends. The MIO is also available in a bright Cool Grey/White colour options to match with several golfing outfits.

 

Offering an equally modern look, the dashing MIKLOS style incorporates angled metal studs in White across the predominantly Alaskan Blue shirt to deliver a super eye-catching look, while the MO shirt with a Cool Grey/White/Alaskan Blue cross-body stripe print provides a standout appearance reminiscent of a layered sky. The distinctively different MIRACLE shirt features an all-over print of mechanical wheels and gears to offer a stellar futuristic look.

 

New for this year, the MARCELO shirt is crafted using a pioneering drirelease® certified fabric to deliver superior moisture-wicking properties and thermal regulation on hot days. It is a great option when matched with the highly breathable PERCY shorts in Alaskan Blue.

 

All VENTIL8™ PLUS shirts and shorts provide excellent moisture-transportation and breathability to keep the body dry, while offering UV 20+ protection in warm temperatures. Easy to maintain, the garments also dry quickly and without the need to iron.

 

Providing a soft and stretchy feel with impressive warmth, the shirts are accompanied by the striking DAWSON sweater in Alaskan Blue with a contrasting White full-length zipper, plus the lightweight DION half-zip and DEL vest in Alasksan Blue Melange.

 

All mid-layers are crafted using sustainable bluesign® approved materials and are designed to be layered with the brand’s premium shirts and outerwear to ensure full breathability and comfort on the golf course.

SUN MOUNTAIN OFFERS PERSONALISATION ON NEW GOLF BAG RANGE

                          


-Latest premium feature-packed carry & cart bags available with a personal touch-

 

Golfers looking to add a name, initials or society logos on their next golf bag can see personalisation come to life for a small set up charge* when purchasing any one of the 28 new stand and cart bags in the latest range from Sun Mountain.

“The embroidery service from golf bag suppliers has been largely limited to club cresting until now, but another ‘first’ from Sun Mountain with bespoke options elevates the product offering even further at a time when customisation has popular with many golfers,” said Nigel Freemantle, Managing Director of Brand Fusion International, the distributor of Sun Mountain products across Europe. “Once again, each bag in the range has been produced with meticulous attention to detail, while catering for the needs of every golfer wanting to enjoy the game with more comfort, convenience and style,” he added.

The best-selling H2NO STAFF model spearheads the fully waterproof cart bag options, thanks to its technical design focused for optimal use on all cart models. It features a 10.5” top with 14 full length dividers and a cart strap pass through for easy loading without compromising access to the nine forward facing pockets.

El gibraltareño Sebastián Desoisa gana el Campeonato de España sub-18 masculino

 



El Campeonato de España Sub 18 Masculino, marcado por las inclemencias meteorológicas, ha sido ganado finalmente por el jugador gibraltareño adscrito a la Real Federación Andaluza de Golf, Sebastian Desoisa.


El golfista de La Roca firmó una tarjeta de 72 golpes (+1) en la tercera y definitiva jornada para un total de 213 golpes, al par del campo, dos golpes menos que José Antonio Sintes, segundo clasificado.


Según el reglamento de la competición, sólo un golfista con nacionalidad española puede hacerse con el título, de manera que el nuevo Campeón de España es el jugador canario, añadiendo un título más a su excelente currículo.


José Antonio Sintes firmó una última vuelta de 74 golpes (+3) para un total de 215 golpes, dos sobre el par del campo, mientras que Santiago Juesas completó el podio tras un resultado de 78 golpes (+7) y un global de 217golpes (+4).


Con este título, José Antonio Sintes demuestra su gran estado de forma, ya que a finales del mes de febrero se hizo con el triunfo en el Red Sea Little Venice del Alps Tour, un torneo profesional a pesar de su todavía condición de amateur.


La trayectoria del jugador insular en las últimas temporadas está siendo claramente ascendente, como indican los tres triunfos conseguidos en 2023 en la Copa de Andalucía, el Campeonato de Madrid y la Copa Nacional Puerta de Hierro.


El cuadro de honor de este Campeonato de España Sub 18 Masculino 2024 se ha completado con los ganadores ex-aequo en categoría Sub 16, Raúl Gómez y Gonzalo Ramos, ambos con un resultado total de 218 golpes (+5).


Este Campeonato de España Sub 18 Masculino es valedero para el Ranking Mundial (WAGR) y para los Rankings Nacionales Sub 18 y Cadete.



**Resultado Finales


1. Sebastian Desoisa (71, 70, 72) 213 golpes


2. José Antonio Sintes (71, 70, 74) 215 golpes (Campeón de España Sub 18).
