British pair win at Lumine

2015 02 Lumine Golf Club 18Th Hole Hills Course

Matthew Cort and Craig Shave claimed the PGAs of Europe Fourball Championship last weekend with a thrilling, professional performance at the Lumine Mediterránea Beach & Golf Community in Spain.


The fourth hosting of the event at the resort near Salou, in partnership with UK tour operator Golfbreaks.com, started off a stellar year at the Troon-managed facility which is consistently chosen by Europe’s leading tours for professional and amateurs events alike.

The British winners finished the three-day better-ball format event on 21-under par, two shots clear of Spanish duo Rafa Gallardo Moreno and Borja Garcia.

The pair began the final round on 13-under par following some blistering golf during the first two rounds played over Lumine Hills and the Greg Norman-designed Lumine Lakes courses, where the pair recorded an ace on the fourth hole.

Cort and Shave dominated on the Alfonso Vidaor Hills course in the finale, with six birdies on the back-nine for a final round total of 64, easing their way to the renowned title and the €6,400 prize.

Calle Carlsson, general manager of Lumine Golf & Beach Club, said: “This year’s event has kick started what I am sure will be a brilliant 2015 golfing season at Lumine Golf Club. We are extremely proud to continue and develop our relationship with the PGAs of Europe who return year after year.

“Our congratulations go to Matthew and Craig, they have impressed players and spectators alike with a cool and calculated approach to master the courses here at Lumine.”
