Somerset Golf Union Performance Manager, Russell Covey remarked;


“The relationship between the Somerset Golf Union and Desert Springs goes from strength to strength. In 2016 we have had our best trip to date!


The golf course is in fabulous condition and the staff are second to none.

We look forward to seeing you all in 2017!”


Oliver Worts, Somerset Golf Union player commented;


“I was pleased with the all round service, the golf course was presented brilliantly and the food was great, many thanks.”


The training camp utilised the excellent practice facilities at the Desert Springs Golf Academy where Russell Covey was able provide one-to-one tuition to the team members and take advantage of the use of the Desert Springs short game academy prior to the players embarking on their rounds on The Indiana course.

“What a sensational week at Desert Springs. Excellent accommodation, great food and a perfect golfing environment for practice and play, thank you!”


“What a golf course, you simply have to play it!

Thank you for a fantastic week.”


Those were the comments received from Somerset Golf Union team members Jonathan Grace and Phillip White respectively.


The players were accommodated in some of the privately owned apartments normally reserved for holidays and short breaks at Desert Springs and the resort’s executive chef was on hand to cater for the special dietary requirements of individual players dining each evening in the ‘El Torrente’ Restaurant.
