At 08.30 on Saturday with a shot gun start, 48 Members began a full day of Golf and Fun which finished just before Midnight to celebrate Phil Brigham's Captains Day Bonanza and what a day it was!

So, at 08.30 with the sound of a gun shot, all set off some in shorts others in thermals, yes beautiful day but with a cold wind you could say a little chilly but who cares course in great shape and it's a special day and with lots of money and prizes at stake and to-day with 3 Categories and prizes for the first 6 in each Category it was all to play for
However, I think the weather took it's toll as only 10 players managed to score 30+ so the prizes and results for the Stableford Competition were Category 1. 1st and overall Captains Day Champion, Dezzy Heywood with 38 points and receiving the Captains Trophy, Free Round of Golf and 20 Euros. 2nd.

Category 3. 1st. with a Free Round of Golf and 20 Euros 31points Dave Wake. 2nd. Ron Nicholson 29 points 15 Euros and bottle of wine. 3rd. Tony Jeff 27 points 10 Euros + Vino. 4th.

TORREGOLF.EU at Font De Llop



Event : TORREGOLF at Font De Llop Thursday 7th. August


  
 
  
It was great to return to one of our Special Courses known as the "Wolfs Watering Hole" on Thursday the 7th. and were we glad to be there to water ourselves!. Course in great condition but some of the holes had had some H&T work carried out during the week so slight problems with the `old puts', however that did not appear to have an effect on El Presidente who sank several from 4mtrs+, the bunkers were also lacking sufficient sand and very wet which caused more problems, but it was still great to be there even though it was a little warm but what do you expect at this time of the year and it was this that caused our numbers to be down on the day, am sure.
Ok the weather is now making life a little difficult on the course but who cares when the grass is green, well maintained and greens though with a few blobs of brown and I mean not any bigger than a Euro coin, obviously repaired pitch marks! were in great condition and true.
However, our Stabelford Competition with just one category to-day produced only 4 members exceeding the 30 plus score which is unusual
So the WINNERS 1st. Tom Curran for the 2nd. time on the trot, 36 points, yes those lessons from our resident pro Adrian Rudge ( special rates for our members) are certainly paying dividends. 2nd. Vince Lannon 31 points 3rd. Martin Goodman 30 on count back from 4th. Steve James.

The Full Monte to-day, in support of our football team CD Montesinos going to Alan Darby.

Only 3 nearest the pins to-day Hole 3. Steve James, Hole 8. Ron Chambers, Hole 12. Martin Goodman.

Our game at Vistabella the previous Saturday resulted in the winners being, Category 1. 1st.Bob Adaiar 36 points 2nd. Ray Pollock 31 and 3rd.Dave Marshall 30 in Category 2. 1st. Terry Taylor 37 points 2nd. Peter Sands 29 and 3rd. Tony Jeff 28. Nearest the pin winners Hole 4. Ron Matthews, Hole 8. Ray Pollock and Hole 15. Terry Taylor

Friday 25th.July saw a full house of members returning to this lovely course for the 3rd. time this year and how we are looking to return again in October & December after what was a fantastic day of golf.
Ok the weather is now making life a little difficult on the course but who cares when the grass is green, well maintained and greens though with a few blobs of brown and I mean not any bigger than a Euro coin, obviously repaired pitch marks! were in great condition and true.
The game was our usual Stableford, in 2 categories and with a large turn out from both the 1st. and 10th.tees at the same time which again was great as everyone was able to finish and enjoy the free drinks and not worry about having too many before the results and then driving home. So, the winners on the day
Category 1. 1st. Paul Abbott 37 points 2nd. Paul Hurrell 36 and 3rd. Larry Quinn 34 and Category 2. 1st. Tom Curran 38 points, normally recording around 25 points and yes that was after his lesson with our resident Pro. Adrian Rudge so you all now know what to do to improve your game go and see Adrian!. 2nd. Al Warnock 36 and 3rd. Neil Casey 34.

Nearest the Pins today Hole 7 Nicy Murdock. Hole 10. David Winder. Hole 14. Sue Owens and Hole 17. Steve Murdoch and the Full Monte Prize in support of our football team CD Montesinos, to-day sponsored by our President going to Colin James

The scratch card to-day winning 20 Euros was Bernard Ball with Chelsea Photo to-day shows some of our members and winners on the grass outside the Club House and in front of the lake and 18th.green.

Also are the results from our last game at Vistabella on the 20th. when 28 players turned out for our regular Saturday game. Winners on the day with 3 Categories were Category 1. 1st. Geoff Betts 40 points good to see you back Geoff. 2nd. Ron Smith 34. Category 2. Barry Wesson 40 points. 2nd. Roger Hedberg from Sweden 32 points. Category 3. 1st. Ray Pollock 42 points. 2nd.David Winder 37. So as you can see some more cuts to handicaps from Mr.H. Nearest the pins Hole 4. David Winder Hole 8 Roger Hedberg and Hole 15 Ron Smith. Well done all, lets see if our next game on the 2nd.August brings another spate of large scores.

Monday 14th. had a full contingent of members going to Roda for the first time and all were pleasantly surprised to see the course in great condition.
However, most found the front 9 fairly difficult but in contrast the back nine which was played first, a lot easier and some very good scores were recorded for example Alan Darby 25 points, Eric Garside 23 and both David Winder & Chris Butler scoring 22 for our normal Stableford Competition. Very good scores for 9 holes.
At the end of the day the winners were Category 1. 1ST. Chris Butler 38 points 2nd. Alan Darby 37 and 3rd. Rob Marchant 36 points. Category 2. 1st. David Winder 38 points 2nd. Steve James 33 on c/b from 3rd. Neil Casey 33. Nearest the Pins. Holes 7 & 11 Rob Marchant. Hole 11 Paul Abbott.

After the game we returned for the first time to Tilleys Bar, Mar Azul, Torrevieja, owned by one of our regular golf members Dave Gill for the results and it was so unexpected but Dave had put on a great spread of sandwiches and sausage rolls, enough to feed an army of golfers. Many Thanks indeed Dave it was greatly appreciated by us all and we can confirm that we will most definitely return to you when playing South of Torrevieja.

We are also pleased to announce that we have now added 2 more golf courses to our playing list, Roda and La Marquesa. Details shortly on our web site.

TORREGOLF at El Plantio



Event : TORREGOLF.EU at El Plantio 19th. July


Thursday 19th. July, what a great day, returning to our home course for the first time in 8 months and finding it in great condition as was expected following the visit 4 of us made two weeks earlier.
A lot has taken place on the course the most noticeable was on the Par 3. Hole 9 where to make life so much easier there is now a bunker protecting the green from left to right!
The work carried out by the management and ground staff to get this course back to the condition we were used too for many years has paid off.

WELL DONE EL PLANTIO.



To celebrate our return, the day was subsidised and all playing received free coffee on arrival with the compliments of El Presidente.

Scoring in our Stableford Competition was very low, this I would put down to the greens which though in perfect condition were slow and very difficult to read resulting in only 5 members getting 30+ points.
The Winners…… Category 1. 1st. Brian Coombes, who from The Full Monte last week to 37 points to-day 2nd. Sharon Smith 32 points and 3rd. Tony Mackman 30. Category 2. 1st. Roy Middleton 30 points 2nd. Christopher Rose on count back from Liam Higgins 27 points.

TORREGOLF NEWSLETTER



Event : The Torregolf Newsletter - June 2014.



As many of you know TORREGOLF started in another form 8 years ago and we became known in our present form and name some 4 years ago and you all know my feelings about Societies, we are a Club, “for the people by the people” and will remain that way, providing you all with golf at what I like to think are some of the cheapest rates on the Costas.
This past playing year, that has not yet been completed, has been what I can only describe as phenomenally successful in its growth with our membership now reaching nearly 300 and I thank you all for your support.
We obviously do something that pleases our members.

I would like to say a few thank you’s because there are others behind the scenes that have made us what we are, firstly to Gary. who with my input has put together what I consider the most fantastic web site www.torregolf.eu. The site came to fruition in December 2011 and last year we achieved over 135,000 hits, unbelievable!


To the Costa Blanca News for the weekly advert they print for us, the power of the web and advertising!! and of course our Associates, The Full Monte supporters Club of CD Montesinos, hopefully we will see more of you watching our team next season and hopefully pushing for promotion.

Membership is not now just coming from the UK and Ireland but from all the Scandinavian Countries, Belgium, Holland, and even from Australia.

Others ...ALL YOU MEMBERS OUT THERE that I must say do a great job in also promoting us. Paul Hurrell who keeps an eye on all you bandit’s with the handicaps, Roy Middleton who generally looks after the finances on golf days, Keith Mann for looking after the Blogs etc., on the web site and lastly Phil Brigham who is tireless in looking after our games at Vistabella on a Saturday (please email him at philbtob@yahoo.com, c.c. myself if you would like to play in any of these games, all are on the web site).

I would also like to say that it is advisable if you book your golf days well in advance to save disappointment because we still try to keep these days to a maximum of 24/28 players. Do not forget that your card also enables you to obtain good rates at all our Golf Courses, details again on the web site.

I will continue to look at courses that I feel may be of interest and would like to deal with us and on that subject I am pleased to say we have now concluded an arrangement with RODA where there are some attractive rates for you to obtain upon production of your membership card (see below).
We are also currently talking to La Marquesa.

In addition to golf we are also adding restaurants now, where it is possible upon production of your membership card, to obtain a discount of some form or another. Details may be seen in our Sponsors section at the bottom of the website pages headed “Special Torre Golf Courses” and “About our Golf Club”.

New membership cards this coming year effective August 1st will be slightly different in so far as one side will show our EU Logo, with your name and membership number on the reverse Full Monte side.

Fees for the coming year which are due on the 1st.August will remain at 10 Euros for existing members, however, new members will be required to pay 15 Euros but if they rejoin again next year they will revert back to paying 10 Euros.
I will, nearer the end of July, advise you that you will be able to not just renew your membership with cash to us here in Spain but I will make an arrangement for those living in the UK to pay direct into a UK bank account and for those living in Europe with Euro Currency to a Spanish Bank.

Hope to see you all soon on the Tee., but please not all together!!!

Kindest regards,
David.






EL PLANTIO - Back Up To Scratch



Event : El Plantio Visit - June 2014


Today, Wednesday the 6th. June, Phil Brigham, Roy Middleton, Paul Hurrell and myself visited El Plantio to see how the course is shaping up because as most of you know our home course has not been that good for some while in fact we have not played there as a Club since last year when most members made comments about not going again!
Shame but it was not good.

However, I am very pleased to say that El Plantio is now the course we all came to love in fact it is better than most of the Courses we play now, and even though there are a few signs, and I mean a few, of the hollow tinning that took place a couple of weeks ago the Course to our minds is top class and as you will see from the photo which also includes Santiago, Director of Golf at El Plantio everyone gives it the thumbs up?

 
Nueve de cada diez pulgares para arriba para jugar El Plantio

The greens were perfect but have to say were very slow, but I am sure by the time we go on June 19th. you will find them to perfection, as we know El Plantio greens in the past were.
That being the case, get your name down now to play - you will not regret it!!

David.

TORREGOLF.EU at Los Colinas



Event : TORREGOLF.EU at Los Colinsa Monday 26th.May


Monday saw us returning for the second of five visits this year to this great course and one of our Special Ones, and it has to said Las Colinas, is "Special".
  
 
  

Great day, perfect weather and a course in excellent condition with the greens really testing ones putting skills. However, one member didn't need to putt on Hole 14 and with an 8 Iron off the tee straight into the hole. Well done Sharon Smith enjoy your prize of a free round of golf and a special bag tag duly embossed, recording the Hole in 1.

To celebrate a photo with Susan and her prizes ...







It was a normal Stableford competition with 2 Categories and the winners were, Category 1 1st.Con Moore 37 points 2nd. Ron Chambers 35 points 3rd.Keith Mann 33 and 4th. Pat Coyne 31 points.

Category 2. 1st. Steve James 30 points on C/B from 2nd. Roy Middleton 3rd. Al Warnock 29 and 4th.
  
 
  
Paul Abbott 28 points on C/B from Bernard Ball. Scoring overall was very close and El Presidente who wasn't going to play due to just getting over an attack of gout started very badly and after 12 holes had just 9 points under his belt and then finished the last 6 holes with an extra 18 points. Strange things happen sometimes in this great game of golf.

The Full Monte supporting C.D. Montesinos prize and sponsored by Vince Lannon to-day went to Simon Gray.

Event : TORREGOLF at La Peraleja Thursday 17th.April


  
 
  
Great day for playing golf on a course that is one of the hardest around. It is a shame that some of the fairways are no better, as were the bunkers, than when we were there just 2 months ago. However, 33 players turned out to enjoy themselves and while scoring overall was not high 11 did manage to break the 30 barrier so that was good in weather conditions that were perfect.
Our Stableford competition in 2 Categories resulted in wins for the following. Category 1. 1st. Sue Owens 34 points 2nd. Mick O'Brien 33 3rd. Eric Garside on c/b 4th. Tony Mackman.
Category 2. 1st. Con Moore 38 points 2nd.Vince Lannon 35 3rd. Tom Ashworth on c/b from Roy Middleton 32 points.

The picture shows some of the winning members on the veranda of Peraleja Club House.











Event : 5 Mental Mistakes You Should Never Make On The Golf Course


I strongly believe that golf is one of the most mental sports. And for that reason, the average player loses way too many shots to poor mental decisions and not knowing how to systematically approach each shot and control their emotions to maintain confidence. This article will show you the 5 most common mental game mistakes that most golfers make and how to eliminate them.

1. DON'T ANALYZE YOUR SWING or think about it while swinging. Any thoughts about your swing on the golf course is counter-productive to a good score, whether it be in between shots or during your swing. Trusting what you have is far more important than trying to correct something or forcing a movement while swinging.

Trying to consciously control your body during any action makes the task more difficult. Think about if you drove your car while consciously thinking about what your body is doing ("foot on brake, now accelerator?") and you'd probably get into a crash! Instead you simply trust your ability as a driver. Thinking about your swing while swinging creates tension which interferes with the free-flow of a good swing. It's fine to think about it on the driving range when you're practicing a new movement you've learnt in your golf lessons, but on the course your mind has to be quiet to play your best.

Swing thoughts usually creep in during a round when a few wayward shots are hit, and subsequently the golfer analyses the swing and attempts to correct the problem. A lot of these off line shots are simply caused by tension, which increases with the more control over the swing the golfer attempts to have. There's a saying that In golf, "You need to give up control to gain control" and I strongly believe that to be true.

Instead of being focused on the body's movements, we need to be connected with the objective - to hit the ball to a specific target with a pre-determined shot shape, and then trust the body to do what we've practiced. The best swing thought is to trust the swing you have, but if you need some help, you can try saying the words "one-two-three" - "one" for the back-swing, "two" for the down-swing and "three" for the follow-through. This should help eliminate the swing thoughts.

2. DON'T THINK ABOUT YOUR SCORE (unless you really have to) Unless you're in a situation where you need to know your score for strategy, like during the closing holes of a tournament, it's best to forget about it. Some of the best rounds in history have been shot while the player didn't know what his/her score was. You'll find that when you play your best, it's like you don't care about your overall performance and you don't judge it, you're just enjoying playing the game and hitting good golf shots. This is the mentality we need during every round.

Score is something that is external and out of your control. Tying your performance to it can create a roller-coaster of emotions. If score is your absolute goal of the game, how are you going to feel when you score an 8 on one hole? Will it dent your ego and ruin your round? If you can shift your goal from each round from score to executing a good process and just enjoying the game no matter what, you will score better. Your focus has to shifted from outcome to process to play your best.

3. DON'T BEAT YOURSELF UP, be your own caddy and remember it's just a game How you talk to yourself on the golf course can make a big difference in how you perform. Caddies are generally selected, not only because they can calculate yardages and read greens, but more so because they knowhat to say to a player and when to say it. You can bet your life if Adam Scott hit the ball O.B. and Steve Williams was to say "What the @#$% was that? How can you hit a shot like that you loser!", he woulbe fired on the spot. Saying such things, doesn't help a player, it would lower their confidence and make them more tense before the next shot. Instead the caddie would offer some encouraging words to help the player forget about it and move on.

Most of us don't have the luxury of a caddie, so we have to create our own "inner caddy", so we boost our confidence and bounce back quickly from shots we're not happy with. To do this, start to develop a list of phrases that you can say before and after a shot. Unless you're playing golf for your livelihood, it really shouldn't make you upset. After all it's a game that allows you to practice real life challenges, like facing adversity, focusing, having a positive attitude, staying in the present and so much more. Think about this next time you hit the ball in the trees.

4. DON'T JUST AIM AT THE FAIRWAY OR GREEN - have a very precise target in mind As a continuation of #3, caddies will always help their player pick a very precise target instead of telling them to aim down the fairway or at the green. But most amateurs do exactly that and it costs them several shots per round. Ask any of the top players and they'll tell you that they make their target as small as possible. Phil Mickelson's target might be that thin silver tree branch behind the green. It definitely won't be the whole green or even one half of it. Next time you're out there, make this a part of your pre-shot routine and you will notice the difference.

5. DON'T FORGET ABOUT YOUR ROUTINE The shot routine (which includes the pre-shot and post shot routine), is an absolute must if you want to play your best golf. It's the most effective way to ensure that you choose and commit to the right shot and then have the optimal reaction whatever the outcome. If you don't have a very meticulous routine (which eventually becomes a habit) you are simply throwing away shots. And it can all be done easilyin the one minute allowed. This one ties in nicely with Mistake #2. Instead of making score your goal, make your routine your goal for every round and focus on everything that's great about the experience in between. If you need help with a good routine, come to Ostravice and see our Head Pro Adrian Hubert.

Tuesday the 11th. saw us back to one of our favourite courses on what can only be described as a perfect day for golfing and at a cost of 6 Euros cheaper than our normal rate, for each player. However, once again slow play was very evident even though it was not caused by any of our members with the course being very busy and a great deal playing prior to our first tee of 10.00am.
However, with the course being in very good condition we should not complain too much and with 3 players coming in with 40 points and over half those playing returning scores of more than 30 points it was obviously a great day.The results of the Stableford Competetion ..

Due to the large numbers of members playing we were able to-day to make this a special one for all, with over a 100Euros of prize money up for grabs for our normal Stableford Competition played with 2 Categories and while it was anticipated some big scores would be recorded only 10 managed to score 30 points plus.

TORREGOLF.EU at La Peraleja



Event : TORREGOLF at La Peraleja Tuesday 11th.February


  
 
  
On a very cold and windy day but have to say dry, we had a full turn out of members to play this Sevi course and it has to be said that I am sure the conditions weather wise caused a day of very low scores and of course it does not help when one group of 4 finished up playing 2 holes out of sequence and were subsequently disqualified sure they need to go to Specsavers in order to read the course planner and when the so called sat nav showed that they were 700mtrs from the hole did they realise they were off course, ha!ha!. However, our President also had problems trying to cope with glasses that were over 10 years old that he had to use due to having broken his current set while back in the UK last week so thanks go to Brian Coombes who was his guide dog for the day to tell him where the ball was on the tee and where it finished up.
Enough of the laughs and lets get down to the results of our usual Stableford Competetion ..

Category 1. 1st. John Aitchison 31 points on c/b from Ron Matthews 3rd. Jim McVicar 28 and though all Torregolf members they are all members at La Peraleja so of course, course knowledge was certainly applied to achieve a clean sweep of all the prizes in this category.
Category 2. 1st.Bernard Ball 33 points, 2nd. Tony Mackman 27 and 3rd.George Hall 25 points
Category 3. 1st. Christopher Rose 35 points 2nd. Steve James 32 points 3rd. Al Warnock 28 points.

Good to have Mick the Grip with us to-day and receive a contribution from us to his recent sponsored hair cut for charity and we thank him for sponsoring the nearest the pins to-day which resulted in the prizes going to Hole 2. Steve James, Hole 7. Neil Brown, Holes 9. & 12. John Aitchison, Hole 16. Paul Hurrell and the 3rd. shot ntp on Hole 17 Bernard Ball.
