Sotogrande SA brings to La Reserva the best women’s golf in the world

, the real estate agency that protects tradition and history in a natural environment as exclusive as that offered by the well-known destination of San Roque (Cádiz) from which it takes its name, has redoubled its efforts to bring La Reserva Club, for the second consecutive year, to the largest tournament to be held in Spain on the 2022 Ladies European Tour calendar, the third in the Aramco Team Series, with a prize pool of one million euros.

An appointment that will take place from the 18th to the 20th of this month of August and that unites the Saudi oil group Aramco, which has surpassed Apple as the most valuable company on the planet, with the best players on the international scene.

This circuit, which due to the size of its participants is guaranteed to have worldwide repercussions, accentuates the presence of Sotogrande, and by extension Cadiz and Andalusia, in the set of such exclusive locations that stand out as the most relevant destinations in the world such as Bangkok ( Thailand), London (England), New York (USA) and Jeddah (Saudi Arabia), the other venues for the tournaments.

Regardless of what the results end up determining, the Aramco Team Series provides its entourage with an unfathomable economic impact.

Hotel reservations, which cover the offer both in the week before and in the competition and in the week after, are just the tip of a prosperous iceberg from which numerous sectors benefit, as disparate as the hotel industry, taxis or security. The Andalusian Golf Federation maintains that this sport contributes some 5,400 million euros a year to the autonomous community, which represents 3% of its GDP, in addition to creating some 26,300 direct jobs and 56,000 indirect ones. This interest that raises the competition cannot be surprising.

The setting, the select La Reserva club, is an exclusive environment, in which both the public and the players will have the opportunity to enjoy not only a top-level course, but also a 360 luxury experience.

A resort that, due to its facilities and location, represents a true oasis in the area: 21,000 square meters of its imitated interior beach, unique in its style, provided with fresh water with a sandy bottom, an exclusive Beach Club, spectacular views of the Mediterranean , or a gastronomic offer, with the possibility of enjoying the dishes of Michelin-starred chefs that make the Aramco Team Series a place-to-be this summer.

With so many charms within reach, it might seem the opposite, but the real attraction of these three days will be in the 18 holes of La Reserva, which will be the setting for the Aramco Team Series, which was born with the aim of promoting, disseminating and contributing to the aggrandizement of women’s golf. The list of players, led by the American Alison Lee who defends her title as champion, could not be more attractive.

Among the 108 professionals are Spanish superstars such as Carlota Ciganda, current winner of the Estrella Damm, or Ana Peláez from Malaga, without forgetting other serious candidates for victory such as the Korda sisters, Anna Norqdvist or Laura Davies. The competition format includes a unique draft system. Team captains will choose one professional teammate, before being assigned a third through a random draw.

Completing each team will be an amateur golfer. In addition to competing for the team trophy, the professionals will also compete for an individual title, offering points in the Rolex Rankings and Solheim Cup, and will be part of the Official Ranking Race to Costa del Sol.

This season the appointment has revised its format, since the team event will take place during the first two days, and the third and last round will be exclusively for the players who make the cut, as an elimination round.

Sotogrande SA, precisely in the year in which it celebrates its 60th anniversary, demonstrates its enormous validity and surprises one more summer with its sports and leisure activities. An opportunity, which due to ticket prices is available to everyone, should not be missed.
