Jose Maria Olazabal’s golf course design activity has been intense for years, with more than ten courses already designed throughout Spain, including the Real Golf Club in Seville, the Costa Ballena in Cadiz and La Sella in Alicante.

José María Olazábal is one of the most active players on the International Golf Circuit and has an excellent track record, including two Masters, four Ryder Cups and twenty-two victories on the European Circuit! This July he made a private visit to Corvera Golf and Country Club, in Murcia. He was there to oversee work on the new golf course he has designed together with his company Integral Golf Design.

From eight until noon, he toured the 18 holes of the course currently under construction, to review the progress of the work and suggest improvements, particularly with regard to the provision of tees, bunkers and greens. The Fuenterrabia (location guide) player was highly satisfied with the work carried out to date and with the great potential of the course, which occupies seventy hectares and measures over 6,700 metres from the professional tees.

Owing to the partnership of Corvera Golf & Country Club and its parent company, Calidona, with the European PGAs (Corvera has been designated the future winter headquarters of this prestigious institution) and the quality of the course itself, Olazábal stated after his visit that Corvera Golf course would, without a doubt, host a European Tour tournament in the near future.

The work is expected to continue throughout the coming months, with sowing planned for next Spring, so that the new golf course will be ready to open towards the end of 2009!

Antonio López, manager of Corvera Golf & Country Club, commented that “Olazábal’s visit has been an important event in the development of the project, confirming the high expectations placed on the golf course and the impact of this great player’s involvement in his design work”. López added that, “to accompany Chema for 5 hours on the course, noting his many suggestions for improvement, and sharing with him his impressive knowledge of the sport, has been an extraordinary experience for everyone”.
