The training camp utilised the excellent practice facilities at the Desert Springs Golf Academy where the PGA Instructors were able provide one-to-one tuition and take advantage of the use of the Desert Springs short game academy prior to the team members embarking on their rounds on The Indiana course.
The team members and officials were accommodated in some of the privately owned villas normally reserved for holidays and short breaks at Desert Springs and the resort’s executive chef was on hand to cater for the special dietary requirements of individual players dining each day in the ‘El Torrente’ Restaurant.
