TORREGOLF.EU & Golf 4 Heros



Event : The new campaign - Golf 4 Heros.





As you all know I started TORREGOLF.EU with the express purpose to make golf cheaper for our members, not those just living here but most of all to those that visit from time to time and are unable to play due to the high cost of golf charged here in Spain.

I am now taking this to a different level and am very pleased to announce that following correspondence between myself and Lt.Col.Tristan Crew who founded the Battleback Golfers programme in 2009 and was recently, (June 29th) on the ITV show Surprise Surprise hosted by Holly Willoughby, TORREGOLF.EU will as of now be supporting the Battleback Programme set up by Golf4Heros.



This new campaign - Golf 4 Heros - is currently being backed by the PGA, the National Golf Club Challenge, Your Golf Travel and the Telegraph in the UK.

I believe this is a great idea and that we as a Club should throw our support behind this Charity, as and when required, here in our little part of Spain.

Many thanks.

David.

TORREGOLF at Las Colinas

Event : TORREGOLF.EU at Las Colinas Friday 1 8th.December.


For our final game of 2015, all in red, because it was a fully sponsored day for prizes by our Associates, The Full Monte, supporters club of CD Montesinos and we played locally at Las Colinas.

A great day weather wise once again with a course in great condition and greens very fast which had a great deal to do with some low scores, I feel from the comments received.

32 members took to the Course for a 1 0.00 start and had we been able to obtain more tee times we could easily have made 50, so popular is this event and course.

Below you will see pictures of the 4 balls taking part for our Stableford Competition.
Results, Trophies and prizes for the day overall were kept for the evening when we had a Dinner/Dance at Rincon de Miguel in Los Montesinos. However for those that weren't able to attend here we go.

Category 2. 1 st. Paul Abbott 35 points 2nd.Peter Kerr 28 3rd. Joe Curran 25
  
 
  
Category 3. 1 st. Bernard Ball 33, 2nd. Al Warnock 29 and 3rd. James Boyd 27 points

Nearest the Pins. Hole 5. Kjell Aasebo, Holes 7 & 10
Paul Hurrell who by this became the King of the Par 3’s for 2015 winning a FREE round of golf at El Planto who sponsor this event regularly with a total of 12 for the year beating Ray Rumble by one.
Next year we will bring in Vistabella which has not had this competition included before.
Hole 14. Al Warnock and Hole 17. Paul Abbott

Longest Drive Hole 3. Paul Hurrell and Longest Drive Hole 12 which finished up being Hole 15. Spencer Andrews and The Full Monte spot we have at every game today went to Rob Parker.

Patsy Long a new member today completing his 3rd.Card received a sleeve of those very valuable embossed TORREGOLF.EU golf balls with a score of 35 points.

Well done everybody see you now in 2016 at our first game Alicante Golf on the 7th.January.

2 scratch cards today with winners of 20 Euros each Roy Tennant and for lady partner in the evening Lyn Gossage.


HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE AT TORREGOLF.EU.

TORREGOLF at Vistabella

Event : TORREGOLF at Vistabella Saturday 12th. December.


For our last Saturday game at Vistabella this year, next year we are having to move some of our fixtures to mid week at the request of Vistabella, which is not a problem as we have many members who cannot play regularly on a Saturday so we are once again able to accommodate all.

So today with the normal Stableford we had 28 players turning out for a 9 am start in once again perfect conditions however scores were today unusually low with only 4 making that 30+ point target.

So, Category 1. 1st. Irvine Scott 36 points 2nd. Jack Webb 33 and 3rd. Geoff Betts 30 points on count back from Ron Chambers.
Category 2. 1st. Neil Casey 29 points 2nd. Peter Sands 28 and 3rd. Tony Jeff 27 points.
Nearest the pins today Hole 4 Paul Hurrell Hole 8 Lynda Govan and Hole 15 Ken Sutton.

Well done all see you all next year and for our last game of 2015 we have the big one at Las Colinas on the 18th. December For The Full Monte Trophy followed by a dinner dance at Rincon de Miguel in Los Montesinos.





TORREGOLF at Hacienda Del Alamo

Event : TORREGOLF at Hacienda Del Alamo 4th.December.


Why is it that whenever we travel to this lovely course many get lost and today was no exception with one member arriving just on time to make his tee time. However with last minute changes to the playing order and even though we were a depleted number we all enjoyed a great day of golf with some fantastic weather for the first week of December and our Stableford Competition produced some great scores for this very long course. Results on the day for just 2 Categories were
Category 1. 1st. Martin Fitzpatrick 40 points 2nd. Gerry O’Loughlin 32 3rd. Felix Mallon 31 points.

Category 2. 1st. Tony Jones 37 points 2nd. John Hough 33 and 3rd. Lyndsay Dunlop 28.

Nearest the pins went to Hole 5. Mike Jenkins Hole 12. Lyndsay Dunlop. Hole 15. Ray Rumble. No one managed Hole 8.

The Full Monte today going to Brian Coombes and the scratch card for €20 went to Peter Kerr.
Our next game slightly nearer to home Vistabella on the 12th.





TORREGOLF.EU at Altorreal

Event : TORREGOLF.EU at Altorreal Monday 23rd. November


It was a shame that our numbers were very low today because this course gets better and better every time we go. Fairways were immaculate lush green from one side to the other but if you did get slightly off the fairways then it meant trouble however greens I had no trouble with, but they were still recovering from recent maintenance, give it a couple more weeks and wow! Great rates for our members as well.
With low numbers in what were ideal conditions for playing golf, though a little chilly, only one Category for prize money which resulted in
  
 
  
1st. Ken Holmes 37 points 2nd.
Neil Casey 35 points 3rd.
Yours Truly 31
and 4th. Mick Gossage 30 points
Nearest the pins Hole 5. Ken Holmes Hole 8 Ray Rumble no one could get anywhere near Hole 10 and Hole 17. Jeano Price
The Full Monte to day being Jim Delaney

Picture of the winners to day L­R Ken Holmes, Ray Rumble, Jim Delaney, David Winder, Jeano Price, Neil Casey and Mick Gossage (looking very cold).




Prior to Altorreal above, we were at Vistabella on the 14th.November when 28 players taking part in a Stabelford with the winners being
Category 1.
1st. Geoff Shand 37 points
2nd. Con Moore on c/b
3rd. Geoff Betts 34 points and
4th. Doug White 33
in Category 2. 1st.Peter Sands 35 points 2nd. Ray Pollock 34 3rd. Bernard Ball 33 4th. Terry Phillips 32 points.

Good day with 12 members with over 30+ points. NTP winners Hole 4. Stan Clayton and Hole 8 Geoff Shand. No one on Hole 15, and then on Saturday 28th. another 28 took to the fairways a Vistabella but not finding it as easy as it was on the 14th. with the winners being
Category1. Geoff Betts 36 points 2nd. Jack Webb 35 3rd. Con Moore 34 4th. Paul Hurrell 28 in Category 2. 1st. Joyce Collins 37 points 2nd. Bernard Ball 33. 3rd. Tony Jeff 28 and 4th. Ron Nicholson 26 points
Nearest the pins Hole 8 Joyce Collins and Hole 15 Geoff Shand No one on Hole 4.

With just 3 games left till end of the year Hacienda del Alamo on 4th. December Vistabella on 12th. and the big one for The Full Monte Trophy that is played for every year with many other trophies donated by our Associates The Full Monte, Supporters Club of CD Montesinos taking place at Las Colinas on Friday 18th. December followed by grand dinner at Rincon de Miguel, Los Montesinos for results and prizes.
This will then wrap the year 2015 for us up.





IMPORTANT : TORREGOLF HANDICAP SYSTEM




As most of you are aware, we operate our club handicaps using the European Golf Association Slope System in conjunction with the Spanish Golf Federation system.

This has for the most part worked extremely well, however, as you may also be aware a lot of our members are UK or Eire based and play under the CONGU unified handicapping system at home.

We have always trusted new members to advise us of their correct handicaps and have allowed all players to play with us using the slope system. Unfortunately over the last twelve months it has become evident that a number of handicaps have clearly been 'generous' to say the least! This has been further exacerbated as shots added through the slope system has put 'local members' at a considerable disadvantage.

Paul Hurrell our Handicap Secretary has monitored the handicaps and resulting scores very closely over the past few months and the number of new members returning higher than expected scores has been on the increase. It is therefore necessary that we take action to ensure fair play for all. With effect from today's date the following procedure for new members will take effect.

In order to play in our Club Competitions new members currently playing under the CONGU handicapping system will be required to have a current CONGU Handicap together with a CONGU ID Number. These players will not receive any additional shots under the ESGA Slope System. New members who do not qualify under the above will of course be very welcome to play as a guest but will not be permitted to win in Club Competitions until 3 cards have been submitted and validated by our Handicap Secretary who will then provide them with an official TORREGOL.EU handicap which will also enable them to play under the Slope system.

I am sure that the above changes to our handicapping system will result in a more level playing field and fairer competition for all our members.

With many thanks,
TORREGOLF.EU











TORREGOLF COASTRIDER ARTICLE ...








TORREGOLF at VISTABELLA



At long last we are now able to give you details and results of our games that take place at Vistabella.
Regrettably this has not been possible before due to circumstances beyond my control.
I would also like to apologise to those members that over the past 2 months who felt they were down to play but couldn’t because names had not been recorded.
Next year with booking system being on line these errors, which should not have happened will not occur.
As you also know we were requested by Vistabella to possibly keep our playing numbers down to a maximum of 28 players., this we have now carried out.
Also you will notice - that in 2016 - many games have gone from Saturday to a week day Event ... again at the request of Vistabella.





POPPY APPEAL - THANKS ! !

Not the easiest course to find but on Thursday 26 players ventured into the depths of Alicante to play this great Sevi course, with 6 par 3's, 6 par 4's and 6 par 5,s and it has to be said members obviously enjoyed it because nearly half managed to beat 30 points, maybe it was the FREE breakfast!, in our usual Stabeleford competition for which the results were as follows with only two categories to day for prize money

Event : TORREGOLF at El Plantio Monday 5th.October


39 members descended on El Plantio for the normal weekly Stableford competition, should have been 41 but as per usual no shows spoil the organisation. It has to be said there were ideal conditions for playing golf even though many found it hard going with only 11 members beating that 30 barrier.

Event : TORREGOLF.EU …..Las Colinas, Friday September 18th


Everyone was up with the lark this morning for our usual Stableford competition with members playing from both the 1st. @ 10th.

TORREGOLF.EU at La Marquesa

Event : TORREGOLF.EU at La Marquesa Friday 4th.September


Friday saw just 23 members attending and out of this total 16 managed to break the magic 30 point barrier, how, I do not know as the course was in very bad condition with only 1 hole playable the rest were under sand in some shape or another and 1 temporary green which was a laugh and totally unplayable. You would think that when hollow tinning takes place that Courses would advise you what is going on, most do and give you the option of cancelling or playing at a reduced rate, not in this case and we were not even advised when we arrived to play.
Comments from those attending “please can we not go here again”

However, we managed to get through it all and the results of our Stableford Competition were
Category 1. 1st. Phil Brigham 39 points great score well done Phil on c/b 2nd. Gerry O’Loughlin and 3rd. Pete Collins 38
Category 2. 1st. Freddie Brown 39 points. 2nd. Tony Mackman 38 3rd. Neil Casey 36
The Full Monte to-day going to Malcolm Harrison

The nearest the pin prizes Hole’s 5 & 15 Steve Keilty-Woolcock Hole 11. Peter Kerr. Hole 17. Mike Jenkins

I heard yesterday that Peter Kerr, when he got home had a lot of pain and the following morning went hospital and was diagnosed with a fractured pelvis which means a lay off for a while. Sorry to hear the news Peter and we all wish you well and back on the Tee as soon as possible.

Our football scratch card to-day for 20 Euro’s with West Ham going to KjellAasebo who is commonly known as Charlie, much easier to pronounce.

After the game we all returned to El Raso Restaurant for the results and another great helping of Tapas.
Thank you Guys very much for looking after us.





TORREGOLF.EU at Font del Llop

Event : TORREGOLF.EU at Font del Llop 20th. August


A very small number of members turned up on Thursday for the usual Stableford and how this course gives us all the WOW factor for its design and challenge and the day was just perfect for playing what has to be one of or not the best courses here on the Costa’s.

With only 2 prize winners to-day 1st. Tom Curran our Aussie member from Perth 36 points 2nd. Terry Taylor 35 points.
Nearest the Pins Hole 3. Terry Taylor Hole 8. Dorian Brooksby Hole 12. Brian Coombes Hole 16. The Club number one! and Hole 17. Mike Jenkins

TORREGOLF.EU at RODA

Event : TORREGOLF.EU at RODA Friday 14th.August


For virtually a last minute booking we went to Roda as the rate obtained was one that we as a Club can accept it is a shame because he course is of good design and have to say was in very good condition and playing conditions were prefect for our usual Stableford Competition.

The results and for to-day with just one Category and 5 prize winners were 1st. Brian Coombes 37 points.
2nd. Ken Holmes 36,
3rd. Dorian Brooksby 35,

TORREGOLF.EU at Alenda and El Plantio

Event : TORREGOLF.EU at Alenda 30th.July and El Plantio 7th.August


With Summer now and truly with us and many members away to cooler places, maybe? so we are putting 2 reports together.

It has to be said that both courses appear to have suffered from the recent extreme weather and were not in the condition we have come to expect though it has to be said that at El Plantio it was obvious that a lot of work has and is going on on the course to have it back in A1 condition for the start of what we call the High Season in mid to late September.

Both the games were our usual Stableford ones with the results as follows:

Alenda winners Category 1. 1st. Mike Freeman 37 points on c/b 2nd. Ray Rumble and 3rd. Geoff Betts 31. Category 2. 1st. Dorian Brooksby 33 points 2nd. Bill Abernethy 32 on c/b 3rd. Bernard Ball.

See you all at Alenda next week!





TORREGOLF.EU at Las Colinas

Event : TORREGOLF.EU at Las Colinas 17th July 2015


Friday the 17th saw a smaller turn out than normal for this very popular course, maybe it was the extreme heat we have had over the past couple of weeks but 24 players still played and with an 08.30 start we were able to get a few holes under our belts as it were before it began to take its toll on us because scores to-day were a lot lower that we would normally have.

Have to say the course was in great condition with greens now beginning to show a great deal of speed which threw many of our members and the results of our Stableford Competition were
Category 1. 1st. Liam 0’Brien 32 points 2nd. Larry Quinn 31 3rd. Peter Kerr 29 and 4th. Paul Abbott with 27 points.
Category 2. 1st. Margaret O’Brien yes, keep it in the family! 37 points 2nd. Bernard Ball 36. 3rd. Terry Phillips on c/b from 4th.Tom Curran 31 points.
Nearest the pins Hole 5. El Presidente Hole 7. dead heat, could not split at all so 2 NTP’s Gill Lawrence & Larry Quinn. Hole 10. Margaret O’Brien and on holes 14 & 17 Geoff Betts.

The Full Monte in support of our associates and CD Montesinos, going to Gill Lawrence.

Please note also that we have added another fixture this year that of Roda on August 14th. so please make a note and book up to play.



No pictures of the winners today but in its place details of the charity we intend to support from now on and one that is very close to what TORREGOLF try to achieve, encourage more to play golf and here it is, Ex Service men who have lost a limb or limbs of some description and for them to take up and play golf under the umbrella of Battle Back Golfers andGolf4Heroes.com.







TORREGOLF.EU at Font Del Llop

Event : TORREGOLF.EU at Font del Llop 1st July 2015


  
 
  
With summer now kicking in and with lesser numbers than usual it has to be said that Font del Lop provided us all with everything today with not only a course in great condition as it always is but they even made sure we had that wonderful breeze on the back 9 that made the day even more pleasant. With the President only in attendance to make sure everything went to plan the Stableford competition was away with an earlier start ... and the results in just 2 categories today were
Category 1 . 1 st. Peter Girenas 35 points 2nd. Mike Jenkins 34 on c/b 3rd. Ray Rumble 4th. Brian Coombes 33 points.
Category 2. 1 st. Neil Casey 37 points 2nd. Joyce Collins 34 3rd. Peter Sands on c/b from 4th. Chris Butland on 33 points.
Nearest the Pins going to Neil Casey hole 3 Ray Rumble on holes 8 & 1 7 John Poole hole 1 2 and Joyce Collins hole 1 6
Our Full Monte today in support of our football team CD Montesinos going to Chris Rose.
Afterwards nearly everyone returned to El Raso Restaurant for the great Tapas they provide and of course the results and cool drinks to wash the day down with.
Our picture outside of El Raso shows some of the winners on the day.

TORREGOLF.EU at Alicante



Event : TORREGOLF at Alicante Monday 20th.April


  
 
  
Monday 20th. saw the Club visiting this Sevi Course in San Juan, Alicante and for most it was their first visit, and though many found it a little difficult to find they all arrived in plenty of time to enjoy a Coffee & Tostada and be on the 1st. tee for the first game at 10.33 and were they in for many surprises!!!, the course was in great condition but it was tough and on the day the pin positions difficult. However our Stableford competition on the course which has 6 Par 3's, 6 Par 4's & 6 Par 5's produced some great scores with 16 players making the magic 30+ points and all the Par 3's produced nearest the Pins, which on the day cost our President a few Euros, ah, what a shame!!.

So, for the results which today were in 3 Categories.

Category 1. 1st. George Hall, 34 points. 2nd. Eric Garside 32, and 3rd. Mick O'Brien 31 points. Category 2. 1st. all the way from Australia, Tom Curran good to see you back Tom and in great form with 39 points 2nd. Roy Middleton 38 and 3rd. Mike Pearson 37 points. Category 3. 1st. Steve James 37 points where did you produce them from? 2nd. Tony Jeff 33 and 3rd. Neil Casey 32 points.

TORREGOLF.EU at Alenda



Event : TORREGOLF at Alenda Friday 3rd.April


  
 
  
Once again perfect conditions for playing golf on Friday and Alenda provided us with a course in perfect condition for a full turn out of members and it is obvious many changes have gone on and still going on, e.g. new bunkers going in on the 9th. which will make this Par 5 HCP 14 more difficult.

Even though the greens were very slow and caught many out I have to say it didn't cause too much of a problem because 50% of those playing managed that magic 30+ score for our Stableford Competition with the winners in 3 Categories to-day being,

Category 1. 1st. Phil Brigham 37 points 2nd. Max Edwards 36. Category 2. 1st. Dorian Brooksby 36 on c/b from Vince Lannon and Category 3. 1st. Al Warnock 36 points 2nd. Henry Dryden with 35.

TORREGOLF.EU at Vistabella



Event : TORREGOLF at Vistabella Saturday 28th. March


  
 
  
Wow, summer has arrived and to celebrate we had a great turn out of 38 players for a special day followed by a FREE Barbecue where partners joined all those taking part and how everyone enjoyed themselves.

Our Stableford competition had three categories today with prizes for the 1st. four in each and of course the usual nearest the pins.

The course was again in great condition as it always is but with all the rain we have had recently and now the sun it will get even better. Scores on the whole were fairly low with only 6 players making 30+ points, why?, not sure but if I hazard a guess it was those fantastic greens which need so much reading before you hopefully stick it in the hole!, it certainly was not the wind which for those that play this course regularly can cause havoc, because there was NONE.

However, the results Category 1. 1st. Phil Brigham 33 points well deserved in view of the fact he organises all our days at Vistabella. 2nd. Alan Seale 29 3rd. Mike Jenkins on c/b 4th. Dave Gill, 27 points.

Category 2. 1st. Tony Jones 30 points sure was due to all that walking and mountain climbing he does. 2nd. Ray Pollock 28 points from Andrew Barwood and Stan Clayton, good to see you back Ray following the car accident on way to Altorreal earlier this month when both you and Phil had a narrow escape!

Category 3. 1st. Alan Perry 34 points and this was after a front 9 of 11points, 2nd. Bernard Ball 32 3rd. Peter Sands on c/b from David Winder both with 30 points.

Our picture to day, yes it was cold! Shows Nearest the pin prizes Hole 4 Alan Searle, Hole 8 Tony Jeff and Hole 15 Mike Jenkins.

Two other things??.it was John & Ann Clays 50th Wedding Anniversary in the week and on behalf of TORREGOLF.EU they were presented with a bottle of Campers to celebrate which was quickly consumed. We also had a raffle for all the players taking part and for 3 Euros one could win a free round of golf for 2 people with buggy at Alenda, proceeds going to reduce the price for all playing there with us next week on Good Friday.

Picture shows the winners on the day.












TORREGOLF.EU at La Serena



Event : TORREGOLF at La Serena Wednesday 18th March


  
 
  
A few members did manage to survive St.Patricks Day and turn up to play golf on a day that was predicted to be a complete wash out with rain all day but someone took pity on us and even though it was very cold, yes it is still winter, and though extremely windy some even wearing shorts, we all managed the conditions and the water of La Serena. When ever I looked back during play there were members scanning the edges of a lake being just 1 of 16 that help to make this course a challenge at all times and it has to be said only 4 members managed to break our 30 barrier.

Our Stableford competition in just 2 Categories to-day saw the winners as follows:

Category 1. 1st. Alan Searle 34 points 2nd. Alan Moody 31 and 3rd. on count back Mick O'Brien 26. Category 2. 1st. Alan Darby out of the blue with 9 points on the front 9 and completed a brilliant back 9 of 22 points 2nd. Bernard Ball 31 and Roy Middleton again on count back 29 points.

Nearest the Pins Hole 3. Sue Owens. Hole 9. Paul Hurrell. Hole15. Alan Moffett and Hole 17. Alan Darby

The Full Monte supporting our Associates the Full Monte and CD Montesinos going to Ron Matthews.

After the game some members returned to Tilleys Bar in Mar Azul where we go following games in the South for results, presentation of prizes and also where David Gill is good enough to supply us with snacks. For this we are extremely thankful and would also like to thank all the Staff for their reception and hospitality.

Our picture to day, yes it was cold! Shows some of the winners and members outside Tilleys Bar.












TORREGOLF.EU at El Plantio



Event : TORREGOLF at El Plantio Monday 9th March


  
 
  
Back to our home course for our second visit this year and again we had perfect conditions to play but after last week and fast greens we were back to those slow greens, never mind that's what golf is all about. However scores were not as expected with only 8 players beating that 30 barrier.

Results for our usual Stableford competition in just 2 Categories to-day were

Category 1. 1st. Paul Hurrell 34 points 2nd. Alan Searle 33 and 3rd. Rob Marchant 31 points. Category 2. 1st. Roger Twigg 36 points 2nd. Al Warnock 34 and 3rd. Peter Sands with 33 points.

TORREGOLF.EU at Altorreal



Event : TORREGOLF at Altorreal Tuesday 3rd March


  
 
  
What a great course this is now turning out to be and with great rates to us, what more could you ask for and to day's conditions just perfect. Big surprise when we arrived was to see all brand new buggies set out for us and showing TORREGOLF with one set out for El Presidente with Porsche embossed on the side! It must have helped because he managed to come in second for our Stableford competition. Course in great condition and greens very fast compared with many around at the moment that are slow. This had a lot to do with the final scores, am sure.

The results turned out with Peter Kerr in 1st.place with 33 points 2nd. David Winder 31 3rd. Bernard Ball 29 and 4th. Barbara Watson 28 points.

Nearest the pins were not easy to day with only Paul Hurrell managing to get anywhere near a pin and this was Hole 8. The Full Monte in support of our Associates and CD Montesinos going to Reg Palmer.

As per usual more details of our courses may be found in this addition of the Costa Blanca News.

Our next venue is at El Plantio on the 9th. followed by Vistabella on the 14th. and then La Serena on Wednesday 18th. Yes probably the only Club here on the Costa's that play once a week so for more information contact David Winder on 626774157 or email him at davidwinder.torregolf@gmail.com.

TORREGOLF.EU at Font Del Llop



Event : TORREGOLF at Font Del Llop Friday 20th. February


  
 
  
Friday 20th.and a full turn out of members to this beautiful course and what a great day to be there as well, because the weather followed by the course were both perfect for our day. Have said it before and will say it again this course is probably now the best here on the Costa's, with a great lay out to challenge any golfer and in great condition. The only problem to-day, as far as all were concerned, was the number of lost balls not to the water but in the brown grass right of all the fairways but surely one is supposed to keep the ball on the fairways!!
However, our normal Stableford competition to day was in 3 Categories with all the competition money collected being returned in prize money with the President putting up a sleeve of TORREGOLF.EU embossed balls for all the Par 3's remember there are 5 at FdL and for a change we also had a 3rd. shot NTP on Hole 6 which surprisingly no one got anywhere near and we only had 3 NTP winners Hole 8. Roger Twigg, Hole 16. Babs. Watson, Hole 17. Will Hadlow.
The Full Monte today in support of our football club CD Montesinos going to Steve James and the Scratch Card to win 20 Euros going to Eric Garside not for the 1st. time this season!. The results for the main competition showed 13 players breaking the 30 points barrier so it turned out to be a very close result. With the winners being
Category 1. 1st. Geoff Betts 36 points 2nd. David Watson 34 and 3rd. Mike Jenkins 30 points.

Category 2. 1st. Peter Kerr 39 points 2nd. Dorian Brooksby 36 and 3rd. Bernard Ball 34 points.

Category 3. 1st. Tony Jeff 32 points on c/b 2nd. Peter Sands 3rd. Roger Twigg 26 points.

Picture to-day shows SOME of the winners on the day.












TORREGOLF.EU at Las Colinas



Event : TORREGOLF at Las Colinas Friday 6th. February


  
 
  
Friday, February 6th. saw 30 members turning out to play a normal Stableford competition on a day that was a lot better weather wise than of late. However, the day was slightly spoilt by Marshalls continually harassing for slow play and for tickets when they should have been aware that our tee times were all booked for the Club. There was no slow play and as one knows you can only go as fast as the players in front of you.
We would like to think that this situation had its effect on the scores because for a change scores were very low with only 4 beating the 30 point barrier. Other than that not a lot to report on the game. So the results were
Category.1 1st. Ron Matthews 34 points 2nd. Will Hadlow on c/b from 3rd. John Peters 31 points Category 2.1st. Con Moore 29 points 2nd. Peter Cowd 25 3rd. Peter Kerr 24 points. Category 3. 1st. Chris Charlton 37 points 2nd. Bernard Ball 29 on c/b 3rd. Christopher Rose.
Extra prize money was put up by the President for todays game and there were 6 nearest the pin prizes of TORREGOLF.EU personalised golf balls. Which were won by Hole 5. Brian Dean Hole 7. Bernard Ball Holes 10 & 17. Dave Marshall Hole 11 Stroke Index 1 4th.shot Par 5 NTP John Peters

The Full Monte in support of our football team CD Montesinos, Graham Hobday and the scratch card for ?20 with West Ham, Fred Parkinson. Well done all.

TORREGOLF.EU at El Plantio



Event : TORREGOLF at El Plantio Friday 23rd. January


  
 
  
On a very crisp sunny day and no breeze we had our smallest turn out for many months on the return to our home course El Plantio for the 1st. time in 2015.
However it did not stop those attending having a great days golf, in ideal conditions. At least we didn't have a very early start so it did give our members the chance to get acclimatised to the winter conditions before teeing off for our normal Stableford competition which has to be said showed the difference in scores from one Category to the other with over 7 members in Category 1 shooting over 30 points and only 2 in Category 2. So,
The final winners in our 2 Category competition were, Category 1. 1st. Gerry O'Loughlin on count back from Eric Garside both with 38 points.
Category 2. 1st. Neil Casey 34 points and 2nd. Roy Middleton with 31.

Nearest the pin winners. Holes 7 & 9 Eric Garside Hole 14 Paul Hurrell with no one on hole 18 and the 4th.shot NTP on our Hole 12 Gerry O'Loughlin.

The Full Monte, Supporters Club of CD Montesinos prize to-day going to Alan Brooker and our scratch card for 20Euros to John Hough. Well done to all.

On a bright sunny day and perfect conditions a full house of players turned up to take on this great course which I have to say was in perfect conditions with a lot of maintenance works going on ready for the Spring, however greens were slow which perhaps showed in most of the final scores with only 8 members managing to break the 30 barrier.
The results of our Stableford competition being Category 1.1st. Paul Hurrell on c/b 2nd.Phil Brigham on c/b Tony Jones all with 34 points.
