Spanish professional golfer Miguel Ángel Jiménez is to oversee the design and construction of a new short game facility at Las Colinas Golf & Country Club in Spain, set to open later this year.
The Las Colinas Short Game Facility will be built within 200 metres from the driving range and 300 metres from the clubhouse at Las Colinas.
Jiménez made a site visit to the course earlier this year and intends to return in the next few months to oversee design work.
“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,” Jiménez said. “And so you can imagine I was extremely honoured 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.”
Jiménez will work closely with the management team at Las Colinas, including the resort’s director of golf & operations, Sean Corte-Real, throughout the design and construction process.
“Work is already under way 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 said. “I hope that players of all abilities will enjoy the new practice area.”
Further details of the Las Colinas Short Game Facility will be unveiled later this year, with a view to the facility opening towards the end of 2017.
