A LITTLE POEM




In my hand I hold a ball, white and dimpled - rather small.
Oh, how bland it does appear, this harmless looking little sphere.
By its size I could not guess, the awesome strength it does possess, but since I fell beneath its spell, I’ve wandered through the fires of Hell.
My life has not been quite the same, since I chose to play this stupid game.
It rules my mind for hours on end, a fortune it has made me spend.
It has made me curse and made me cry, and I hate myself and hope to die.
It promises me a thing called par, if I hit it straight and far.
To master such a tiny ball should not be hard at all but my desires the ball refuses, and does exactly as it chooses.
It hooks and slices, dribbles, dies, it disappears before my eyes.
Often it will have a whim, to hit a tree or take a swim.
With miles of grass on which to land, it finds a tiny patch of sand then has me offering up my soul, if only it would find the hole.
It makes me whimper like a pup, and swear that I will give it up and take to drink to ease my sorrow, but the ball knows… ........

I’ll be back tomorrow!

TORREGOLF at Font del Llop



Event 120 - Torregolf at Font del Llop Monday 9th.July - 2018


With conditions excellent for playing golf and one of our lowest turn outs for a while everyone enjoyed the shot gun start we now have for all our Events at Font del Llop and even more getting round in just over 4 hours in what was a very warm day.

TORREGOLF at Lo Romero



Event 120 - Torregolf at Lo Romero Friday 29th. June - 2018


An eventful day to day as this was our first visit to Lo Romero and regretfully I could not experience the course for which all members have raved about before and also did today even if it meant a shot gun start at 08.00 for the 34 members down to play.
However some members cancelled and am sure for that reason, but this is now the way forward for Torregolf with the number of members now wanting to play our Events and not having to be out for 8 hours + a day.
Having now said that it did not affect the scores because out of the 34 playing, 24 managed to score 30+ points so well done to everyone. So, the results.
Category 1.1st. Ray Rumble 37 points 2nd. Andy Rawlings 36 3rd on a c/b from Alan Gifford both with 35 points Keith Long.
Category 2.1s. David Green 40 points 2nd.Joe Curran 37 3rd. Derek Sullivan 34 and 4th.Bob Adair with 33 points.
Category 3.1st. Gail Green on c/b 2nd. Alan Perry both with 35 points 3rd. EllyVanHimbergen 31points and 4th. Len Cole 29 points.
Best Front 9. Alan Gifford 23 points and Best Back 9.Derrek Sullivan on c/b from Gail and David Green all with 21 points
Best new member with a massive 48 points Julie Adams.
Nearest the Pins:
Hole 5. &Hole 15. Con Moore Hole 7. David White Hole 12. Phil Harris
The scratch card winner with Chelsea. Keith Smith
Which just leaves us with The Full Monte supporting our Football team CD Montesinos Paul Fox with 20 points.
Issue: 10 members failed to score on the island 18th.
Everyone is now looking to coming again on our next visit which is the 4th. August, so come and experience something different.
Our winners photo courtesy of Kevin Hopkins shows all with the course in the background.
 











TORREGOLF at El Plantio



Event 121 - TORREGOLF Presidents Day @ El Plantio - Thurs 21st.Jun 2018


Yes today was the annual Presidents Day outing to our home course and it went off with a BANG.
Yes a shot gun start at 09.00 hrs so it meant an early start for all but it was worth it as the course was in perfect condition and probably the best it has been for a very long time. Greens were perfect but unusually slow. Even better was the special price for the day as well and yes we had blue, blue skies and no wind everything was just great with even the President taking part for the first time in 3 weeks but regretfully his leg wouldn’t let him complete the whole 18 holes having to pull out after 15 holes and at that period of time had 26 points on his card.
Originally we had 75 members down for this Event but on the day 56 managed to tee off on time and at the end of the day only 19 failed to get 30 points +. So it was a very tight game in 3 Categories with not one winner getting less than that magic number.
So for the results, yes, they are being held back till after Monday the 25th. June as they are being given out at a special Gala Dinner/Dance at Pacos in Rojales. So this being the 22nd.are the results ...
The Full Monte and with just 24 points on a count back from Dorian Brooksby was Alan Perry.
Category 1. 1st. not wearing his Payne Stewart trousers for a change, yes Dennis Clarke with 40 points 2nd. Ray Rumble 39 points.3rd. Stephen Brown 38 and 4th. Alan Gifford 37 points on a count back from Keith Smith.
Category 2. 1st. Barrie Hopkinson on a count back from 2nd. Bob Adair both with 35 points 3rd. David Green 33 and 4th. Colin McCoy with 32 points.
Category 3. 1st. 1st. Stuart Massie 45 points 2nd. Kevin Hopkins 39 points 3rd. Frank Todd 38 and 4th. Gordon Roxon 35 points.

From this you will now see that the Presidents Trophy for 2018 goes to STUART MASSIE with 45 points and that included a blob on Hole 1. So well done Stuart - you will now suffer a rather large cut which will bring you down to earth.
Best Guest/Carder was Robyn Goodwin with 44 points.
Best Front 9. Frank Todd on a count back from Kevin Hopkins both with 23 points.
Best Back 9. Stuart Massie with 23 points.
Nearest the Pins and a problem because on Holes 9 and 14 the name was ‘Daisy’ who ever she was so in view of the fact that we did not have a Daisy playing or a member of the same name so obviously a Daisy playing decided to put her name down on the marker so the NTP will go to Peter Bone for Hole 9 and Alan Gifford on Hole 14.
Now the Torregolf Par 5. Hole 12 for which there is a Trophy for the 4th shot nearest the pin was a steal for Jim Imrie who putted out for a birdie. Well done young Jim. But insisted on putting Tom Currans name on the marker. Thanks Tom for telling us.
The scratch card was won by Robert Lewis with Chelsea a good one Robert playing with us for the 1st.Time

All the winners will be shown on a separate Blog taken at Pacos restaurant. However some will not be there as they didn’t attend the venue.











TORREGOLF at Bonalba



Event 120 - Torregolf at Bonalba Wednesday 13th.June - 2018


Might be the 13th.but not a Friday so there should be no excuses today for bad scores and that was the case when a slightly down number of members produced some good ones with the lowest score with The Full Monte going to Stephen Rollins with 20 points. However, the course was generally in great condition following HT but fairways were in need of some cutting which was actually going on while play was taking place and the greens were a little slow and wooly. Weather wise was perfect for golf and it was great to see, even though the course was very busy everyone getting round in good time. I watched all coming down the 17th. and, there were no gaps at all. So well done all.
Before the results nothing of any real importance but……on his wedding anniversary an Eagle was recorded by Mike Jenkins on the Hole 6 Par 4. 304 mtrs. So well done Mike on both counts.
So, the results ...
Category 1.1st.Bob Adair 39 points 2nd.Con Moore 38 3rd. Ray Rumble 36 and 4th.Tom Curran 34 points.
Category 2.1st.now with 3 first’s and a 2nd place in the last 4 weeks Norman Dobson 35 points 2nd. Chris Butland 31 3rd. Joe Curran and with 5 blobs 30 points and finally 4th.Derrick William on a count back from Len Cole 28 points.
Best Front 9. Con Moore on a count back from Ray Rumble both with 21 points.
Best Back 9. Bob Adair 21 points.
Nearest the Pins Hole 4. Chris Butland Hole 8. Ray Rumble Hole 11. No one! And Hole 14 Joe Curran.
Finally our scratch card with Coventry and he wasn’t sent there .. Len Cole.

TORREGOLF at La Finca



Event 119 - Torregolf at La Finca Tuesday 5th.June - 2018


Yes today we ventured very local and with 41 members playing we started the day with a number off Tee 1 and the rest off tee 10. However there was a small problem at the start with the wrong numbers on the wrong Tees, but with our usual efficiency, even if it did mean some hair being pulled out, we did manage to get all off on time, for a round that took just over 4 hours. The course was just back from hollow tinning but did it take its toll, answer NO, even with temporary greens on Holes 11 & 14 where the bunkers around the greens were undertaking a total refurbishment so it has to be said the course was in great condition with conditions for playing golf just perfect hence this was reflected in the final scoring scenario, where 24 member recorded more than 30 points and 4 breaking into the 40 barrier which has not been achieved for some while.
So without further ado the scores on the doors as it were for the winners today ...
Category 1. 1st. Ken Holmes 42 points yes CaptainB.,weve got you at last! 2nd. Tony Felstead 40 3rd. Lindsay Dunlop 37 and 4th.on a count back from Geoff Plumer, Con Moore both with 35 points
Category 2.1st. Bob Adair 39 points 2nd.Andrew Barwood 38 3rd. Stuart Massie 35 4.Stephen Rollngs 34 points.
Category 3.Roger Twigg 43 points 2nd. Norman Dobson 40 ( reversal of last weeks results) 3rd.Gordon Roxon 39 and 4th. Mick Madra 33 points on a countback from Kevin Hopkins and Elly van Himbergan.
Best Front 9. Gordon Roxon 21 on c/c fromTwiggy Best Back 9. Ken Holmes 25 points.
The Full Monte today with 22 points Kevin Robinson.
Nearest the pins.
Hole 3. Elly Van Himbergan
Hole 6. Andrew Barwood
Hole 13. Ken Holmes
Hole 16. TontFelstead
Our scratch card winner with Chelsea Darren Holden

Our pictures, 2 today, taken on the 1st. fairway because Ken Holmes affectionately known as Captain Birdseye to me managed to not make the group photo due to buying everyone a drink in the bar from his winnings??????
So just sitting down and recovering from this after a hard day at the office. Great day had by all.

TORREGOLF at Altorreal



Event 118 - Torregolf at Altorreal Tuesday 29th. May - 2018


Yes have to say Altorreal never fails us when we play there and today was no exception with course being in great condition. Greens were a little slow but the cutting of them had not been right to the ground even though they had all been cut so that was probably the reason. Once again there were a number of last minute cancellations which is not good when we set ourselves up for a large number to play and today in perfect playing conditions only 25 made the game. Scores were average and only 10 made that 30 points scenario we talk about weekly.
So the results etc.
Scratch Card was a carry over to La Finca next week which still has some vacancies to play.
The Full Monte today going to Derrick Cooper with 18 points.
Nearest the pins Hole 5 Jim Bryce. Hole 8 Mike Jenkins Hole 10 Tony Robson and Hole 17 Norman Dobson
Just 2 Categories for the prize money.
Category 1.1st. John Mitchell 36 points2nd.Ray Rumble 33 3rd. Tony Robson on a count back from 4th. Mike Jenkins both with 31 points
Category 2.1st. Norman Dodson 32 points 2nd.Roger Twigg on countback from 3rd. Frank Todd and 4th. Al Warnock all with 30 points
Best Front 9 John Mitchell 19 points and Best Back 9 Ray Rumble on a c/b from Ken Holmes also with 19 points.

Once again all the winners photograph taken on club house terrace. See below ...
 











TORREGOLF at Font del Llop



Event 117 - Torregolf at Font del Llop, Tuesday 22nd.May, 2018


Yes our first visit to Font del Llop after the trauma of the Brian Coombes accident last month but this course and it’s wonderful staff in its brilliance can cope with anything and today for our shot gun start after the mass exodus of members, yes 28 over the month, 16 in the last 5 days, still carried on even if the Torregolf members in charge were tearing their hair because it is believed due to the shot gun start for this Event.. Sorry but this is the way forward for us with the amount of members now wishing to play our Events and next year this sort of start will occur at most of our games.
Put it this way do you want to be at the course for hours either before or after a game and today 32 members proved it correct because the 09.30 start saw the first to complete 18 holes back in the Club house, yes, at 13.40 hours when was the last time that occurred I ask myself.
Today was a Stableford Competition and the scoring as far as points were concerned turned out with over 50% of those playing securing 30+ points on their cards and on this course that is good.
The course as usual was in great condition and the service provided by the staff once again was 100%. It’s always a pleasure to come to Font del Llop and already we have booked to come here 9 times next year.
So for the results:
Nearest the pins and yes as everyone knows there are 5 Par 3’s here and 2 members decided that just 1 NTP was not enough Yes Peter List on Holes 3 & 8 and CorrenaAltoft on 12 & 16 just leaving Keith Smith to pick up Hole 17.
Our best of the new members cards went to Mike Serrage with 38 points
Best Front 9. John Grint with 22 points and Best Back 9 also with 22 points on a c/b from KjellAasebo who only a few hours earlier flew in from Norway, was Frank Todd.
The Full Monte which is always a laugh and today went to Tony Mackman with 20 points.
Which leaves us with the winners in 3 Categories
Category 1.1st. CorrenaAltoft with 38 points 2nd. Keith Smith 37 3rd. Con Moore with 33 points
Category 2.1st. John Grint 37 points 2nd.on a count back, Ken Holmes 32 from 3rd. Barrie Hopkinson
Category 3.1st. Norman Dobson on a c/b from 2nd.Kevin Hopkins both with 39 points and 3rd. Pete Jenner 34 points.

It is also reported that prior to the start and in front of all those playing David Winder presented Vanesa Garcia, Director of Golf with a bouquet of flowers as a thank you for all her efforts during the Brian Coombes scenario. See below ...

TORREGOLF at Font del Llop



Event 117 - Torregolf at Font del Llop, Tuesday 22nd.May, 2018


Torregolf were today 22nd.May back to Font del Llop for the first time since the bad accident that Brian Coombes had on the 27th.April and before our 09.20 tee time and in front of all the TOOREGOLF members I was pleased to present a bouquet of flowers to Vanesa Garcia, Director of Golf at Font del Llop on behalf of all our members to thank her for the everything that she and the all the staff carried out on the day and since then to locate Brian whereabouts following the accident .......

Thank you Vanesa.
 











TORREGOLF at El Plantio



Event 116 - Torregolf at El Plantio, Tuesday 15th.May, 2018


Today in just the correct temperature and great conditions for playing golf at our home course saw 30 members checking it all out prior to Presidents day on the 21st. June and with the course improving every day in the way it looks and plays it will be one very special day!

TORREGOLF at Vistabella



Event 115 - Torregolf at Vistabella Friday 5th.May


Sorry a little late with the details of today due to circumstances beyond my control and fact that David Bailey failed to turn up and take the winners photograph. Anyhow without further ado…… and thanks to Ken Holmes and Mike Jenkins for looking after all….. 35 members took to the fairways at Vistabella with near perfect playing conditions and it appears that over 50% of those playing managed to break the 30+ points barrier and once again it appears that the new stroke index 1 proved not to be that difficult.
So for the results ...
Category 1.1st. Mick Gossage 33 points 2nd.Derek Sullivan on a count back from Keith Smith both with 32 points and 4th.Malcolm Campbell 31 points.
Category 2.1st. Vic Smith 37 points 2nd. Ken Holmes 34 3rd. Phil Harris 32 on a countback from 4th. Irvine Scott

TORREGOLF at Font del Llop



Event 114 - Torregolf at Font del Llop Friday 27th April


32 members had an early start today, why, we were playing for the first time a Texas Scramble with a shot gun start at 09.00.
The course has to be said was in brilliant condition and weather was perfect, we had 8 four balls but regretfully only 7 managed to finish due unfortunately to an accident to Brian Coombes which required him to be airlifted to hospital. As most know by now Brian is both safe and well and is recovering and we wish him all the best and hope to see him again in the very near future.
After the game it was generally agreed we should do this format more often. Yes it is fun!
As for the results well to start with there were no NTP’s No best 9 or front 9 or Full Monte and the scratch card was carried forward to next week at Vistabella. So all the prize money was shared amongst the first 3 teams which resulted in the winner being the team captained by Jim Imrie, who had with him Mick Gossage, Alastair Farquhar and Bill Fantom who came in with a net score of 59.1 Second place went to the team captained by Ray Rumble and his crew consisted of Con Moore, Allard Hudson and Steve Boxer who somehow managed to miss the photograph of the winners with a score of 59.7 and third was the team captained by Derek Sullivan who had with him Graeme Jolly, Gordon Roxon and Len Cole with a total score of 63.5.
All the winners photos taken on the wonderful terrace at Font del Llop with the back drop of course. Must say it looks as if we played in some inclement weather, no, in full sunshine it just wasthe end of the day finished in thunder storms hence the dull photos. Maybe that’s why Steve was not to be found?
 
 
 











TORREGOLF at El Plantio



Event 113 - Torregolf at El Plantio Thursday 19th.April


What a lovely day to play golf at our home course and today we had probably our largest amount of members ever playing yes, 49 and the course have to say was in pretty good condition but greens were in need of a cut being a little wooly. However none of this took its toll on the members and with over 200 Euros of prize money etc. at stake it was all to play for though there were some low scores with 4 members fighting it out for The Full Monte but in the end it went to Derek Cooper playing off 20 and scoring just 13 points. What can one say……….Just a bad day at the office.

Now for the rest of the results.

TORREGOLF at Altorreal



Event 112 - Torregolf at Altorreal - Wednesday 11th.April


Yes back to one of our favourite courses Altorreal however today it was not good. This is high season for playing golf and also attracts premium rates so you don’t expect to find a course where maintenance is taking place around the greens and all the lead ups to the greens are covered in sand and to the sides look as if they have been dug up with lumps of grass/soil/mud, laying about. Where we told, did they cordon off, ground under repair, reduce the price answer = NO. However this will be addressed!
The legitimate moan out the way lets now concentrate on the game which did predict some very low scores for our Satbleford competition with only 9 members out of the 31 playing reaching that 30+ barrier and there was certainly no one today getting there handicap cut! If only the situation had been like the greens, which I would add were fantastic then I have no doubt scores would have been very high.
So for the results starting with of course with The Full Monte and today went to Jan Anderson with 18 points. Well done Jan but let me assure you there were many others very near including Brian Coombes who last week came in with 40 points.
Best new carder to day was Dave King with 31 points.
Nearest the pins.
Hole 5. StepheRollings Hole 8. Joe Curran Hole 10. Len Cole and Hole 17. John Gregory

TORREGOLF at Vistabella



Event 111 - TORREGOLF Vistabella - Tuesday 3rd.April


I think summer is here and today was probably the 1st.day as it was exceptionally good with no wind, course beginning to show the grass that goes brown in winter now showing some green and of course brilliant sunshine and a temperature in excess of 25 cent. Fabulous.
However it should be said that the recent rain had a slight impact on the condition of the new holes with mud slides but good to see staff out rectifying the situation.
With conditions great and of course those greens to contend with, it was good to see 18 members out of 33 playing, breaking that 30+ barrier.
Everyone should try the course when here but have to say direct price for members going direct with their membership card in high season leaves something to be desired and Management have been told. So be warned.
However, the results for our normal weekly competition starting with The Full Monte supporting our football club today went to a winner last week with 36 points Gary Carr-Smith and today 22.
Nearest the Pins : Holes 2 and 11 Jim Imrie Hole 7 Paul Cogin and Hole 15 Gordon Roxon
Best Front 9. Paul Cogin 22 on c/b from Vic Smith
Best Back 9. Again on a count back with 20 points Len Cole from Brian Coombes.
Our scratch card was a roll over this week to Altorreal next week where there are a few places still available so if you want to play one of our favourite courses book on line now.
Category winners today starting with Category 3 for a change and with 38 points and 1st.place David Winder 2nd. Michael Madra 34 points 3rd. Peter Boon 33 and 4th. Len Cole 32 on countback from Gordon Roxon who today just couldnt sink a putt!
Category 2. 1st. Brian Coombes 40 points the 2nd.time in 3 weeks with 40+ and after a cut BUT now another! 2nd. Paul Cogin 38 3rd. Terry Sharley 31 4th. John Gregory 28 points.
Category 1. 1st. Jim Imrie 37 points and now playing off 4.6 2nd. Sverre Soneson who said at the begining of the day that he could not play off his HCP of 13 ….I rest my case …..36 points. Don’t moan again Sverre! 3rd. Ken Holmes on a c/b 4th. Vic Smith both with 33 points
Our best initial carder today was John Mitchell with 32 points welcome John see what you can do next week.
 
The photo of the winners today taken by Mike Jenkins shows all outside the club house on the green, green, grass of Vistabella note the clear blue sky at 15.00 hours. PERFECTO ...











TORREGOLF at Font del Llop



Event 110 - TORREGOLF at Font del Llop Monday 26th.March


After the gale force winds at the week end, 43 members braved what can be a very windy course, yes, the beautiful Font del Llop and with also that 1 hour difference it was not looking good. But we had words with the Caddy Masters office and they fixed it for us to have sun and a great day’s golf, even though it was obvious the gales had struck there with considerable damage to the Club House.
However to the golf, course in great condition though some of the greens were very difficult to judge with many having 3 putts on the green. So with 4 Categories today starting with those new carder members was 1st. Derek Sullivan 39 points 2nd. on countback Wim Ramakers with 34.
Category 3.1st. Gary Carr-Smith 36 points 2nd.Gordon Roxon 34 3rd. Andrew Barwood 33 and 4th. Alan Perry 32 on c/b from Mike Madra

TORREGOLF at Altorreal



Event 109 - Torregolf at Vistabella Friday 16th.March


Yes Vistabella today and good to see some green grass beginning to grow now instead of the bleak brown but of course the greens are still those greens we love or hate depending on how many putts one takes. Weather perfect in every respect with that valley wind coming through later in the day, however, it didnt appear to cause a problem to Brian Coombes who came in with 41 points or El Presidente with 4 blobs but a very nice 36 points. Other than that the scores were very average for Vistabella with only 10 of the 36 playing making that 30 barrier.
However on the lighter side good to see Dennis Clarke back with us today in his finery of the Payne Stewart dynasty and today in Green. Dennis, always a delight to see the flamboyant you. Vicky has a task on her hands to keep the colours going in the future.
So for the results of our normal Stableford competition
And starting with of course the Full Monte which resulted in one of the Category winners of last week Henry Drydengetting this with a massive score of 15. Well done Henry.
Category 1.1st.Correna Altoft 34 points 2nd. Dennis Clarke 33 3rd. keep it in the family, Vicky Clarke and 4th. Alan Gifford.
Category 2. 1st. Bian Coombes 41points sorry Brian the knife is out! 2nd. Captain Birds Eye and our Judge today Ken Holmes 30 points 3rd. Quinton Pegden 27 and 4th. David Altoft 25 points. Ah yes, must tell you this one have you ever seen a golf ball having been hit fairly hard on the green strikes the hole then jumps a foot in the air and falls back in the hole…..if playing with David, ask him to do it again!
Category 3.1st. David Winder 36 points 2nd.Robert Ridgeway 32 3rd. Kevin Hopkins 30 and 4th.BepBrouwer 28 not Andrew Barwood..Sorry Bep with the mistake when cards were checked and missing out on the winners photo ( will make it up to you when next down from Holland).
Our best of the carder category and yes only joining us yesterday, WimRamakers from Belgium with 31 points and receiving that prize Torregolf Mug. Must say it’s good to see our Club becoming more and more a true European one. May it long continue.
Finally our scratch card with Wolverhampton Wanderers Dennis Clarke.
No game next week…….give everyone time to get over Paddys Day and Fathers Day here in Spain so will see currently 44 members taking to the fairways/greens of yes the members favourite Font del Llop.
GREAT DAY!
 
Our photo of some of the winners taken outside the Vistabella Club House look as if they are in the mist before the large down pore of rain received some 15 minutes later. Blame Ray Rumble he took it.











TORREGOLF at Altorreal



Event 108 - Torregolf at Altorreal Friday 9th.March


Yes I think summer is here…..
after the cold spell on and off over the last few weeks today saw 42 members arriving in Altorreal, Murcia for the normal weekly Stableford and guess what many actually arrived wearing shorts, so that says it all. Weather was perfect with the course in great condition however the greens were very slow which even though scores were high they could have been even higher bearing in mind also that we had most of the time to play off the white tees and yes a few moans from lady members or poor Gail who was very upset having also to play where the Yellows were. We love you realy Gail. Reason, as the weather had turned warmer Altorreal were re seeing the tee boxes. Must say did feel sorry for the ladies but also I also have to feel sorry for those old codgers who also had to play from the Whites.
Having said all that over 50% of those playing managed to secure themselves 30+ points.
It should also be mentioned that we had 6 guests playing who finished up joining TORREGOLF.EU having enjoyed the day and the company. Thanks Guys!
So for the results today in 3 categories plus the 1st. carders which produced a winner in the name of Brian McSkimming who had a fantastic score of 40 points well done Brian but you know what that means?
Category 1. 1st. Keith Smith 36 points on a count back from 2nd. Alan Gifford 3rd. Ray Rumble 34 points and 4th.KjellAasebo 33 points.

Yes a great day though has to be said some of the olduns had to take a chair to sit down for the winners photograph taken in lovely sunshine on the Club House terrace.
 











TORREGOLF at Vistabella



Event 107 - Torregolf at Vistabella Thursday 1st.March


Yes a great day of golf and everyone is now getting used to the new hole’s, though have to say there is something wrong with Hole 6. Stroke index 1……..no way!, we had 33 members playing resulting in 1 Birdie, 13 Pars 13 Bogeys and only 1 member failed to score points. Bring back the old STI 1 now Hole 10, because Hole 6 is certainly not the hardest hole on the course. Course as usual in good shape and green grass is becoming to show so Spring cannot be far away and today we were even able to dispense with a sweater even though some wind did get up later in the day.
So now for the all the results starting of course with the Full Monte and our support for CD Montesinos who continue to go beyond the point of no return and after last week ends result of a 5-2 win now move to 4th. in Division 1. , and today it went to the new Lewis Hamilton won’t tell you why……… Gordon Roxon with 18 points.
Best Front 9. John Gregory on a c/b from Geoff Plumer 20 points. After the front 9 Geoff lost the plot with 6 points, hey ho, that’s golf.
Best Back 9. Malcolm Watters also with 20 pointsbut his wheels didn’t fall off.

it’s not that cold Marion!











TORREGOLF at Font del Llop



Event 106 - Torregolf Font del Llop Wednesday 21st.February,2018.


A second week of low numbers with 24 cancellations. Not sure why when this course is always great to play and very much a favourite with members, maybe it was the weather forecast but no we managed it without rain or wind in fact we even saw some sunshine!, even if it was a little chilly, well it is February.
However, those that did play enjoyed a great day of golf with 50% making that magic 30+ points scenario. Course was in good condition looking very green on the fairways and greens playing fast most of the time and true.
So for the results with some shocks or should I say one, yes El Presidente who having been in the money winning frame over the past few weeks decided it was time to rethink the way he played and it worked getting the Full Monte with 14 points and 9 blobs…..what can one say?
Nearest the pins.
Hole 3 Tony Felstead. Hole 8 Roy Tennant. Hole 12 Barrie Hopkinson. Hole 16 Ken Holmes and Hole 17 Joe Sheehan

TORREGOLF at Bonalba



Event 105 - Torregolf at Bonalba Wednesaday 14th. February,2018 .


Yes for Valentines day we were off to Bonalba with conditions for playing golf just perfect, however think the day affected a lot of members because we had 28 cancellations in the end which in that number has never happened before. Remember not to play on the 14th. February again!
However, having said that the conditions were great bearing in mind that Bonalba, 2 days earlier, went into High Season the course was undergoing severe maintenance to the fairways and was not in the best of condition for a high season cost and with the added problem of trying to keep the ball rolling slowly on the greens which were lightning fast, it was a difficult days golf but for many it still did not stop some high scores being recorded.
So for the results of our normal Stableford with just 2 Categories of winners.
Category 1.1st. Mike Jenkins 36 points 2nd. Derek Beckett 32 3rd. Hans van Wanrooji 29 and 4th. Ken Holmes 28 points.
Categpry 2.1st. David Winder 36 points 2nd. Kevin Hopkins 35 3rd. Alan Perry on a count back from Brian Coombes both with 34 points.
Only 2 nearest the pins won and they were holes 4 &8 both going to Derek Beckett.
Best front 9. On a count back from Mike Jenkins and both with 19 Points Brian Coombes and the Best back 9 also on a count back this time Alan Perry was David Winder with 20 points.
Our Scratch card was carried over and finally The Full Monte with 20 points Thijs Hoogervorst.
 
Our photograph to day show the winners on the terrace of the Club House.











TORREGOLF at La Finca



Event 104 - TORREGOLF at La Finca Monday 5th Feb 2018.


After our last visit where the winds reached gale force today it was totally the reverse and while it was chilly we did have some sunshine to see 30 members enjoy a great day of golf even though many of the yellow tees where attached to the whites making it a very long day especially with the older members yes we should look again at the question of us ‘old uns’ well those that would play on the Seniors Tour playing the Blue Tee Boxes.
However, while conditions were perfect scores were unusually low with only 7 making 30 points plus. Those Yellows Tees!?
However the results starting with our football scratch card with Manchester United yes the one and only El Presidente and The Full Monte this week a lady member Bianca Vieleers with 20 points.
Nearest the Pins Hole 3 and 16 Mike Jenkins. Hole 6 Kevin Robinson and Hole 13 Brian Andrews

TORREGOLF at Vistabella



Event 103 - Torregolf at Vistabella Friday 26th.January,2018.


Yes back to one of our special courses for the first visit this year and of course for many of our members playing, a chance to see the extra 7 holes now added to the original 11 and what a day to celebrate this Event. 32 members arrived for a normally later start than normal and while it was fairly dry and overcast we were met with winds greater than those we remarked upon at La Finca 2 weeks ago and when I say winds more like gales in fact at times it was difficult to stand up when addressing the ball, wherever it was and this obviously caused some low scores and only 7 making that 30 point barrier we talk of weekly.
However, it has to be said we now have a complete 18 hole course that will test all golfers! and if you havnt played it get yourself down there and experience one of the best courses on the Costa’s. If there is anything that is not quite right it‘s going back on yourself to the next tee in many instances.
As far as the Slope is concerned be it white, yellow,blue or red this course has it spot on with regard to the distances and Slope calculations. Please note other courses, because most of you do not have it correct!
It is very important that we remember what all these Tee boxes are about and why they are there.
Well done Vistabella.

Now for the day and results starting with The Full Monte in support of our football team and Associates CD Montesinos / The Full Monte and today, to regular a player at Vistabella …Scotty, and yes with 12 points, sure it was the wind that caused this as he was looking a little paler at the end!
Nearest the Pins.Hole 2. now known as the Peter Kerr hole. Joyce Collins.Hole 7. Roger Hazeldine
Hole 11. Con Moore in his shorts Brrrrrrr!! Hole 15. Jim Imrie.
Best new carder Patrik Lundblad with 31 points winning that very treasured TORREGOLF.EU mug and he also won the Scratch Card with Coventry and 20 Euros.
Best Front 9. SverreSoneson 21 points and Best Back 9.Mike Jenkins with 22 points
Just 2 Categories to day for prize money
Category 1.1st. SverreSoneson 36 points 2nd.Jim Imrie 35 3rd. Ken Holmes and 4th.Peter List 28 points.
Category 2.1st. Mike Jenkins 40 points 2nd.Roger Hazeldine 33 3rd. Roger Twigg 30 points and 4th.Joyce Collins with 29 points.
2 Members failed to return a card.

Our photograph today show some of the winners outside the Caddy Masters Office and have to admit some look as if they have been in the cold others must have had a couple brandies in the club house and warmed themselves up before he picture.
 












TORREGOLF at El Plantio



Event 102 - TORREGOLF at El Plantio Friday 19th.January, 2018.


Yes today back to our home course with fantastic weather playing conditions for this time of year however the course was not looking in the best of condition which I was told was due to severe frosts over the past weeks also a lot of the tee boxes were under repair and it was very wet underfoot in places but as usual a lot of gardening had taken place with the vegetation being cut back for the new season and I was assured it will be tip top within 3 weeks.
However, it did not appear to effect the scores with over 50% of the members playing, carding 30 points plus. Now when one scores a massive 42 points you would think “well no one is going to beat that”…….how wrong can you be, yes, El Presidente was beaten by 1 point. What can I say!
So for the results
Nearest the Pins Hole 7.no one. Hole 9. John Moore Hole 14. Matt Shirkie Hole 18. Quinton Pegdon and on Hole 12. 4th. Shot NTP.TommyErixson

TORREGOLF at La Finca



Event 101 - TORREGOLF at La Finca Thursday 11th. January 2018.


On a day that started just great and perfect for playing golf turned out to be a nightmare with winds gusting up to 70kmh and that of course had an effect on the scores, with out of the 34 playing only 4 members managing to make more than 30 points. Shorts were not the number 1 priority for today!
So for the results of our normal Stableford competition were ..
