Designer: Moon Masters
The Luna brothers and their course designer Felipe Rodríguez have worked together to produce, what is not only a spectacular design but also a great engineering project. Luis Benito and his team of BCP engineers carried out a great job to make to make the whole project possible.
The course has an 18 hole layout and a driving range for up to 15 players at any one time with a a fully equipped caddyshack for golf tuition including video analysis as well as technical help.
The course ranges from 6,201 metres in length from the white “tiger” tees to 5,050 metres from the reds.
The different tee placements means the length of the course can be varied according to the differing climatic conditions or type of tournament played.
The greens are of Agrostis stolonifera T-1 and the rest of the course (tees, aprons and fairways) are Lolium perenne Grand Slam II variety. The rough is a mix of Lolium perenne, Poa pratensis and Festuca arundinacea.
The whole course is perfectly sign posted according to present regulations and is being continually prepared to play host to all kinds of tournaments.
Felipe Rodríguez Llanos (Agricultural Technical Engineer)
His work has developed since he finished university and worked as greenkeeper in courses in Madrid and Valencia (El Bosque, Centro deportivo Barberán and Collar and La Galiana). He started work as Engineer and Designer when collaborating with José María Olazábal and his design team for four years from where he would go on to work with the Luna brothers.
He has taken part in projects at national level as well as international level and without doubt the fact that he is a golf pro it has given him that extra vision of what a golf course should offer.
La Galiana, his first solo Project as golf course designer is a good demonstration of this extra vision. Demanding golf layout, adaptation to natural surroundings, environmentally friendly and a commitment to high level maintenance.
