Golfers at Quinta da Marinha will be able to take full advantage of technology and data at the refurbished practice facilities at the stunning hotel in Cascais, Portugal.
The hotel itself underwent a €5m overhaul of all 198 bedrooms, many communal areas and updated décor throughout as it celebrated its 20th birthday earlier this year.
But the practice facilities also enjoyed a major upgrade with €150,000 spent on the range with new mats, a grass area to hit from, new targets and a practice bunker to sharpen skills out of the sand.
In addition, Trackman technology can also be booked for swing analysis under the guidance of the in-house PGA pros to work on all areas of the game.
Situated just a few metres from the first tee, there are no longer any excuses to avoid the warm-up – especially with a tight opening first tee shot – before a memorable round at the Robert Trent Jones-designed 18-hole course.
Quinta da Marinha sales director, João Pinto Coelho, said: “A good golf course also needs excellent practice facilities and it’s an important investment for us.
“Us amateur golfers might sometimes try to avoid working on the range or miss the warm-up and we then wonder why we make some mistakes on the course.
“Perhaps we had an excuse before, but not anymore!
“These are excellent new facilities and if golfers spend enough time there with the right guidance from our professionals , they will see big improvements.”
A 30-minute drive from Lisbon in stunning Cascais, Hotel Quinta da Marinha is part of the ‘Great Hotels of the World’ portfolio, with its Robert Trent Jones-designed par-71 golf course offering outstanding views over the Atlantic Ocean and the Sintra Mountains.
