Course Closure ...

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!


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 ..
The Full Monte in support of our football team CD Montesinos to day went to Frank Kinghorn who I think decided he didn’t want to be embarrassed and left before the prize giving so it went to the next lowest scorer, just 1 shot more, Kevin Robinson with 14 points!

TORREGOLF at Bonalba

Event 100 - TORREGOLF at Bonalba 3rd. January, 2018.

Yes the New Year and a new course to play for most members and have to say what a great day it turned out to be with perfect playing conditions and temperatures reaching 25c. Numbers for the day were 24 who travelled up the A7/E15 to just north of Alicante to receive on arrival FREE coffee, a good start, which for some got even better with even the 40 points barrier being broken by 2 members so big cuts taking place for Geoff Ashton and David Altoft.
No other memorable things to add other than and witnessed by 8 members, yes El Presidente teeing off the 18th. which is over water, doing a Dam Buster tee shot with 5 bumps on water and making the fairway and even finishing up with a point!
So the results...... firstly The Full Monte in support of our football team CD Montesinos who go into the new year in 6th. place in their Valencian League to another football man and joining us for the 1st.time Malcolm Watters a Director of Montrose FC up in bonny Scotland. Sure you will do better next time Malcolm but welcome to the Club.
Best Front 9 and also Best back 9. David Altoft with 21 and 20 points lucky on the back 9 because it was on count back from 2 others.
