Boasting with not one, but two world-class 18-hole golf courses, the club is regarded as one of not only Spain’s, but Europe’s best with the New Course clubhouse a popular venue for private events and celebrations.

Housing a welcoming restaurant, bar and lounge, this clubhouse was recently renovated to stay on par with the club’s spotless reputation. The original brezo roof structure and entrance walkway required replacement and to carry out the job, they turned to the masters in the field of thatching: Cape Reed International.

The Cape Reed team, known over the world for their expert craftsmanship, attention to detail and superb quality of work, got to work on removing the old roof cover, inspecting the substructure and, after founding it to be up to standard, installed nearly 500m² of brand new cape reed thatch.
