‘It has been a great day; the golf course is amazing, full of small details that make it so different, and the Clubs organisation was wonderful. I have enjoyed very much the day and I am both honored and looking forward to representing Desert Springs with Tracy at Antequera at the end of the month.’

‘I am extremely impressed with the golf course and service. It is probably the best golf course I have ever seen and so completely different to what we are used to seeing. I am going to recommend to El Corte Inglés that for 2009 the final of the circuit is celebrated here at Desert Springs!’

Director of Golf, Simon Coaker remarked:
‘We all wish Bartolomé and Tracy the best for the forthcoming Area Phase. This all helps Desert Springs’ reputation as one of the very top high quality courses in Spain and as a venue that can host the most important of national golfing events.  We are extremely pleased to have been informed that we are being recommended to host the 2009 Final of the El Corte Inglés Circuit. This confidence in the resort evidenced by the very professional organizers of such a major national tournament underlines the growing maturity of the Desert Springs Resort & Golf Club on the national golfing scene’.
