BOM SUCESSO Golf Course welcomes Barry Lane

Barry Lane, the famous English golfer and member of the European Tour practiced in Bom Sucesso Golf Course during the month of March, from 16 to 23. Stuart Woodman accompanied Barry Lane´s practice for the Open de Andalucía, part of the European Tour, which will take place 26-29th March, in Spain.

Barry Lane became a professional golfer with only 16 years and six years later, in 1982, debuted in the European Tour. Today with 49 years and a career of more than 30 years dedicated to professional golf, he integrated both circuits, the PGA Tour and the European Tour, preferring always de European circuit.
The nearness to his home and a friendlier environment are the reasons for his choice on the Old Continent. He joined the European Ryder Cup team in 1993, played for the "Rest of the World" team in the UBS Cup in three different occasions and represented England in the World Cup and Alfred Dunhill Cup several times. 

Reached the top of his career in the 90s, a decade he was three times in the top 10. Between 1988 and 1994 he won four tournaments in the European Tour. Barry Lane already won a final against Tiger Woods, the One Million Dollar Challenge. In 2005 played in Estoril Open in Portugal, finishing 5th place.

Barry Lane is along with players as Sam Torrance, Roger Chapman, Eamonn Darcy and Malcom Mackenzi, the fifth player to reach 600 tournaments in the European Tour. The 600th tournament was the Commercialbank Qatar Masters in 2008.

Barry Lane's opinion about Bom Sucesso Golf Course: "Fantastic! I cannot believe that it has only been open 6 months. The fairways and greens are perfect, better many Tour courses, but I am astonished at how good the rough is and surrounds are, which are usually the weak point of a new course.
The Range is great to practice on, all shots are pure carry, which is what you want to know and the short game area allows a full range of chipping, pitching, lobbing, bunker play and putting
The houses are very well equipped and furnished and the beds give you a great night's sleep!
The staff have been so nice to Camila and myself and the weather has been ideal, so just what I needed."

For Ricardo Garcia, head of the company Golf do Bom Sucesso, "welcoming Barry Lane to practice in our field and to host him at Bom Sucesso - Holiday Design Villas is an honor and a huge satisfaction. It is also a quality test to Bom Sucesso Golf Course, considering the admirable curriculum of Barry Lane."
