Luciano Alonso, the Andalucian Minister of education, culture and sport, has come in for harsh criticism after laying the foundation stone of a new €5 million public golf academy at Golf El Toyo in Almeria.
Critics object to the fact that the new development is a mere 200m from an existing municipality owned facility, that the development is not needed and should not take priority over existing projects that have been mothballed since the crises, particularly the long suspended Hospital Provincial de Almería, which had its first foundation stone laid in 2011.
It is estimated that the Golf school project will use an estimated 30 hectares of land in El Toyo. A clubhouse will be built at a cost of €772,000, an additional €500,000 is expected to be spent on the urbanisation of the area. The remainder of the budget will be spent on greens, bunkers a practice tee and sports fields and play areas.
