Jimenez, one of the biggest personalities in professional golf, opened his golfing academy in the Costa del Sol resort of Torremolinos. The new venture is home to a nine-hole golf course and a putting green, both of which have been specifically designed by Jimenez.
Jimenez commented on the opening of the new academy at its launch, saying:
"This is a dream come true as golf has given me everything and I want to give back. My goal was to develop and promote golf in this area and it’s been achieved with the opening of the Academy."
He commented on the future plans for the academy too, saying:
"The land is a 50-year concession from the Town Hall. We have very popular prices and will be focused mainly on children and families with special discounts for them."
Those with a love of golf have, for many years, looked out for cheap flights to the Spanish Costas, as the region offers a number of courses to players of all abilities. The lush, well-maintained greens, combined with the glorious sunshine and golden beaches of the Costas, offers the choice of a holiday spent split between the golf course and the beach.
The fact that an academy now exists and is being backed by a celebrity golfer means that more and more golf fans will surely start to venture to Torremolinos thanks to cheap flights to the Spanish Costas with Jet2.com.
