Golfing legend and 21-time European Tour winner Miguel Ángel Jiménez took time out from his busy schedule to officially unveil the stunning ‘Las Colinas Short Game Facility designed by Miguel Ángel Jiménez’.
The world-class conditioned Short Game Facility, which is spread across 5,000 sq. metres at Las Colinas Golf & Country Club, was declared officially open by its designer after months of close collaboration with the Las Colinas management team. Boasting spacious Bermuda grass playing areas and an immaculate 680 sq. meter green with lush Bent grass, the Las Colinas Short Game Facility designed by Miguel Ángel Jiménez will now be open to visiting golfers and Pro Groups looking to fine tune their game whilst staying at the resort.
“I’m incredibly proud to open the Las Colinas Short Game Facility and have been extremely impressed with the pristine conditioning of the whole area,” said Jiménez. “It’s been really exciting watching how the project has developed since we started work earlier this year and I now look forward to seeing golfers from all around the world enjoying a world-class facility.
“It was crucial the facility offered the very best in standards because I know from visiting Las Colinas that the whole resort demands that level of quality,” added Jiménez.
The Las Colinas Short Game Facility designed by Miguel Ángel Jiménez also incorporates two large practice bunkers and allows golfers to practice their full short game repertoire over a 75-yard distance. Positioned just over 100 metres from the range at Las Colinas, the Troon-conditioned facility is perfectly located for those looking to improve their short game.
