The FADESA Group and Aymerich Golf Management have signed an agreement for the operation of four golf courses included in FADESA property developments in different parts of the country.
Specifically, Aymerich Golf Management will be in charge of the management of the golf courses owned by FADESA on the Costa Esuri Housing Development (Ayamonte, Huelva), the Moncalvillo Green Casas&Golf Housing Development (Sojuela, La Rioja), the Residencial Lomas de Badaguás Housing Development (Jaca, Huesca) and the Costa Anácara Housing Development (Miño, La Coruña).
This agreement is not exclusive, as FADESA has other operating golf courses which are managed by different specialised companies in this sector. In fact, with this transaction the Group seeks to increase diversification in the management of the golf courses it promotes as part of its assets division, as well as improving its level of professionalisation, by dealing with a leading company with a wide experience in the sector.
The agreement, which for the time being only includes these four golf courses, can be extended to others, and also involves the implementation of a series of advantageous measures for purchasers of properties in the housing developments where these golf courses are located. To be exact, buyers will benefit from a 30% discount in the purchase of the rights of use of the golf courses mentioned in the agreement. In addition, several different formulas are under consideration, so that guests staying at the hotels located in these developments will also enjoy certain advantages regarding access to the courses included in the agreement.
