Since opening ten years ago, Lumine Mediterranea Beach and Golf Community has gone from strength to strength, now welcoming 38,400 visitor rounds every year and serving as the home to 250 members.

In 2017, Lumine had the privilege of hosting European Tour Qualifying School Final Stage, which followed its role as host of Q-School Second Stage over the previous five seasons. The Greg Norman-designed Lakes course and the spectacular Hills Course will again set the stage for European golf’s ultimate test in November 2018.
