La Quinta Golf and Country Club has announced a redesign of key holes and renovation plans for its irrigation system. The announcement of the ‘Plan de Adaptacion’ will see the championship venue embrace a new law, which requires golf clubs to review all aspects of course management, in particular, environmental efficiency of water use and safety standards.

“This is a considerable investment and demonstrates the confidence and commitment of the Board to further establish La Quinta as one of the very best facilities in the region and Europe,” said Scott Evans, director general of La Quinta Golf and Country Club. “Our plan to develop the layout and irrigation system coincides nicely with the recent announcement set out by Junta de Andalucía. We have developed a strategic partnership with the team at Ramon Davila of Promotur in making sure we are operating at our most environmentally sensitive and as efficiently as possible and we are all looking forward to seeing positive results.”

Two new par threes are being constructed while the new irrigation system will allow a more efficient use of water and the ability to water greens and fairways independently. A planting programme will reduce water requirements in non playing areas.

The original layout, designed by renowned golfer Manuel Pinero is part of a 27 hole complex. “I’m delighted to see all the improvements and certain the new layout and playability of the course will be much enjoyed by all the members and visitors alike,” said Pinero.

La Quinta Golf and Country Club has partnered with Troon Golf who have been working closely with the ownership to further enhance La Quinta as a golf resort.
