Desert Springs Ryder Cup

The 2007 marketing of the Desert Springs Resort and Golf Club included presentations to a number of selected Golf Clubs in Madrid, Spain. Part of this particular promotional initiative was to develop close relations with these Golf Clubs with the intention of encouraging their members to visit Desert Springs for short golfing breaks.

With this intention, Desert Springs has developed agreements with; Real Sociedad de Hípica Española Club de Campo, Club Jarama R.A.C.E., Club de Campo Villa de Madrid, La Moraleja y Club de Golf La Dehesa and La Herrería.

Many of these Clubs’ members have since visited on golfing breaks and experienced the Indiana course and facilities which we offer, all of which has assisted greatly in the awareness and reputation of Desert Springs Golf Club within the Spanish national market.
