Tuesday saw a full house turn out for a return visit to Alenda and another great day of golf in association with the Costa Blanca News. Course in great condition though greens expected to be fast were in fact slow. Have to say some shots resulted in golf balls finishing up making a journey to Madrid on the back of a lorry(s), sorry to those involved, they know who they are!. The president, for once had a great shot, on the hard 17th. Hole when he hit the pole with his 3rd.shot and finished his par off with a 6 inch put.

Results on the day did cause a problem with marking in Category 2 where 6 players finished the course with 34 points. However, overall in Category 1. 1st. Geoff Betts 38 points 2nd. Roy Middleton 35 and 3rd. Phil Brigham 34 points. Category 2. 1st Vince Lannon 2nd. Tony Mackman and 3rd. Bernard Ball all with 34 points. Category 3. Brian Coombes 38 points 2nd.

TORREGOLF.EU at Hacienda Riquelme

Event : Hacienda Riquelme 26th.April

With lovely weather our members descended for the first time on Thursday to one of the best Jack Niklaus courses here on the Costa's namely Hacienda Riquelme and we were not disappointed. However when we arrived it was obvious from first glances and the wind that the day was not going to be easy and club selection was very difficult on every hole to combat the wind and avoid the many LARGE bunkers to be seen on every fairway and the rough with its many grasses to swallow up the ball from any wayward shot, and then of course there was the usual water hazards to avoid!

Taking all this into account the result was that many members had great difficulty in publishing high scores and then of course when we arrived on the beautiful contoured greens reading was difficult as we would expect after the recent rain to be lightning fast they were in fact slow.

However, a great day and the winners on the day were first the course and then followed by in Category 1. 1st.Sally Brian with 39 points, 2nd.Paul Hurrell with 34, 3rd.Jane Woodward with 31 points. Category 2. 1st. Peter Wells 35 points 2nd.Vince Lannon 31 and 3rd.Con Moore 29 points. Category 3. 1st. Terry Sangwine 27 points 2nd. Roger Twigg 26 3rd. Mike Zebadee 25 points
Our 4 nearest the pin winners were Hole 5 and 7 Joyce Paterson Hole 15 Mike Zebedee and Hole 17. Jane Woodward.
Our next outing is the Alenda Golf on Tuesday 14th.May and then Font del Llop on the Friday 1st.June, both being courses in our Costa Blanca News Budget Golf deals.

For those interested in joining us, membership of 10 Euros will see you through now till the end of July 2013 for the fastest growing golf club here on the Costas. For more details call David Winder on 626774157 or email him at

With a special rate to members of 45Euros including the buggy we all played our normal Stableford competition. Not quite a full house to-day with the flu bug keeping many away or was it because it was St.Valentines Day, so we only had 2 categories but still plenty to play for.

TORREGOLF.EU at Alenda Golf

Event : TORREGOLF.EU at Alenda Golf 24th January 2012.

Great day in every respect and at a price of 35 Euros including a buggy for our very first visit to Alenda Golf. However, it did not start well with many of our members losing the plot as far as directions to the golf course were concerned, but thanks to Jose, at Alenda, we were able to keep near enough to our booked tee times.

Course in great condition, greens superb but what a place to have the pin on the 18th, very well placed to test us all.
It was also the first golf day for members to nominate their card for our Super League to be finalised in December, 5 cards were nominated and after the game we had El Presidente on a count back with 33 points leading the pack. While talking about count backs it was just as well we had 3 Categories for the prizes as we could still be at the course checking scores which were very close because we had 12 members coming in with a score over 30 points with the winner on 37.

Results for the day.
Category 1. 1st. Maurice Sweeney 37 points. 2nd. Brian Mulligan 33 points on c/b. 3rd. Ronnie Gibson.
Category 2. 1st. Peter Kerr 33 points. 2nd. Brian Coombes 32 points on c/b. 3rd. Roger Bird.
Category 3. 1st. Terry Sangwine 34 points on c/b. 2nd. Roger Twigg. 3rd. David Winder 33 points.
Our nearest the pin winners Hole 3. Reg Palmer, Hole 5. Alan Darby, Hole 13. Maurice Sweeney, Hole 16. Alan Darby.

Longest Drive on Hole 17. Mick Gossage. I should also say that Micks wife Lin ran a half marathon at Santa Pola at the weekend in aid of Help the Heroes Charity and was sponsored by TORREGOLF.EU but .....yes, she ran with perhaps she thought, a strained ankle, but was later diagnosed with a broken leg. Have you ever heard of someone running 12 1/2 miles (not sure whats that in kilometre's) with a broken leg.

Well don Lin.

Back to the golf. Best front 9. Peter Kerr 19 points. Best back 9. Maurice Sweeney 23 points. Lastly our football scratch card with a 20 Euro prize was won by Roger Bird.

Our next game is back to our home course El Plantio on Valentines Day, 14th.February followed by Golf Altorreal on Monday 5th.March. So if you want to play some of the best courses here on the Costas with the best prices then email or give him a call on (0034) 626774157.
