Today we had booked a shot gun start for 34 members all teeing off at 08.50 which is our normal arrangement when playing Vistabella, this we did, but unfortunately we had a no show which caused a little delay while re arrangements were made. However, have to say all went well and we were all back at the Orange Bar for the results and refreshments for 13.30.

Event 162 - TORREGOLF Font del Llop Monday 29th.April 2019





34 Members all off various Tees starting at 09.40 plus major changes to the HCP system being tried out led to some confusion but it all worked well in the end and gave us ideas as to where we go in the future. So, yes back to Font del Llop and as usual everything was great……. the course, weather led to a great days golf, some very good scores and to all finish and be in Hole 19 in well under 5 hours was a bonus and this is the way forward for all our members not only now but in the future where we are able to carry out this method of playing.

TORREGOLF



Event 161 - TORREGOLF Monday 22nd.April 2019





Cancelled due to excessive/persistent rain over the last 5 days.










TORREGOLF at Las Ramblas



Event 160 - TORREGOLF at Las Ramblas Monday 15th.April 2019

Today saw many of the 31 members playing something different starting with a new course for most, yes, Las Ramblas which for those that have played there is not the easiest around the Costa Blanca but if nothing else ‘Interesting?’ but not the word for some of our members……
The other was a new format for playing when we had a team game consisting of 4 members with different scoring on each 6 holes of the 18 being played. This format probably went down more than playing the course and will again feature in the future along with other team games though it has to be said that most of those playing did say they would like to play the course again….so that they could find the balls they lost, I wonder why they lost some??
Answers on a post card please!
So for the results with the winning team of Ray Rumble consisting of Ray plus John Stead, Malcolm Watters and Sverre Sonesen who scored 106 points
2nd. Was Team Steve Boxer who maybe had an advantage with only Steve being partnered by Dave King and Keith Long with a total of 97 points
 
PHOTO SLIDE SHOW    <  use arrows  >
 

3rd. Team Twiggy yes Roger Twigg along with Brian Walsh, Glenn Forrest and Stephen Rollings with a score of 89 points.
Well done all.
Nearest the pins Hole 6. Vic Smith Hole 10. Vicky Clarke Hole12. Vidar Fleld but no one made Hole 14. Our scratch card winner not playing today but there to see how it all went, with Derby County, yours truly…. BoJ. At least I didn’t lose any balls!!
Lots of pictures for today including a few of the course taken by Gary Carr Smith.
It should also be noted that a decision has been made that with immediate effect Male members handicaps will be to a maximum of 28 and Ladies 36.

TORREGOLF at Altorreal



Event 157 - TORREGOLF Altorreal Thursday 28th.March 2019


Yes today back to one of the original courses that we signed up some 18 years ago and it’s always a pleasure to travel that little more distance for a great course. It has changed over the years and have to say for the better though yesterday while members thought the course was in great condition I felt it wasn’t as good as last time we came due mainly to the fact it was obvious that some HT work had been going on, on the fairways in the past few weeks which I know will make it even better for when we come again on the 22nd.April. Greens were in perfect condition.
The scores today where not the usual ones with only 11 managing to make more than 30 points in weather conditions that can only be described as perfect however I did manage to be 1 of the 11 out of the 32 playing even though still with my knee problem and possible gout as well, how we have to suffer to play this wonderful game. Enough of that ……the results for the day in believe it or not in just 2 Categories and the winners were
Category 1. 1st. Mike Jenkins 33 points on a c/b from 2nd. Mike Serrage 3rd. Sverre Sonesen 31 and 4th. Kjell Aasberg 30 points.
Category 2. 1st. Mick Madra 36 points 2nd. Bep Brouwer 35 on another count back from 3rd. Derek Williams and 4th. Special K…Hopkins with 33 points
Best Front 9. Mick Madra 23 points and Best Back 9. With 20 points Per Borg
Nearest the pins. Hole 5 Kjell Aasebo Hole 8. Con Moore Hole 10. Joe Curran and Hole 17.Mick Madra
The Full Monte and for the 1st.time Roy Tennant with 15 points
Finally the Scratch Card with Everton. Con Moor.
 
Our picture of the winners minus 1 shows them in the lovely sunshine on the outside terrace of the Club House.











TORREGOLF at El Plantio



Event 155 - TORREGOLF at El Plantio Wednesday 20th.March 2019


Not a lot can be said about today other than the warm weather experienced recently deserted us and it was ‘a little on the chilly side’ which is why probably no one wanted to stay after the results for the usual winners photo……or was it because it was Wednesday and that generally means going somewhere else for cheap beer……….dare I mention Daniela’s?
However, it also has to be said that while a lot of work was going on, the course was in pretty poor condition. Not being there to witness I can only report what I am told. We will be talking to El Plantio on this subject as soon as possible, because it’s not good enough for the money being asked to pay, even if it is our home course!
Maybe the condition of the course and the cold also had something to do with the very low scoring with less than half of those playing making the magic 30+ points so without further ado the results in just 2 categories today.
Category 1. 1st. Joe Curran 36 points on a count back from 2nd. Mick Madra 3rd. also on c/b’s was Stephen Rollings from Matt Shirkie both with 34 points. Category 2. 1st. Sonia Axberg with 35 points on again a count back from 2nd. John Stead 3rd. Kevin Hopkins, 28 points and 4th. Bep Brouwer with 27 points. The Full Monte today went to John Vaygelt with 17 points
Best Front 9. John Stead 20 points and Best Back 9. Ray Hamilton with 22 points.
Finally Nearest the Pins.
Hole 7. Still to make! Hole 9. Sonia Axberg Hole 12. Yes the Torregolf Hole for the 4th. shot NTP went to Tony Robson. Hole 14. Mike Jenkins and Hole 18 Ken Holmes
The scratch card with Celtic went to Special K.

Please note next week our game a Escula de Golf is cancelled ...
if you had your name down to play.
So will see you all at Altorreal on the 28th.March











TORREGOLF at Vistabella



Event 154 - TORREGOLF at Vistabella Tuesday 12th.March 2019


For the first time this year we were back to Vistabella and at long last sat navigation now up and running. Great.
Have to say course was in very good condition much better than it was last year and the 30 playing all enjoyed it, with 14 beating that barrier we have. Results for the day in just 2 Categories.
Category 1. 1st. Mick Madra on a c/b 2nd. Bob Gammond and 3rd. Bob Adair all with 36 points 4th. Bo Axberg 34 points

Yours Truly, with 29 points and while there I have to report that Stroke Index 2 the 10th I had a drive of 256 mtrs. on the green for 3, 3 mtrs. from the pin and guess what 3 puts!!!. Disgraceful David! Have to also have to make a comment that to my mind this hole should still be stroke index 1 on the course not Hole 6.
Best Front 9. John E. Grant 19 points on c/b from Bob Adair, Roger Hazeldine and Derek Beckett.
Best Back 9. Mick Madra 20 points.
The Full Monte today went to Dan Torberg playing off 7 and scoring just 19 points the 2nd week on the trot when what should be known as reasonable players have won this prestigious prize?
For the best new carders the prizes went to 1st. Julie Adams with 36 points and 2nd. Sonia Axberg 34 points.
The scratch card with yes Aberdeen was Mike Jenkins.
After the game we all returned to the Orange Bar for the results and of course FREE food and discounted drinks. Thank you to the Staff and of course John Mitchell, currently in Bahrain, but still managing to look after us. Freshly cooked food after the results was fantastic.
Our picture today of the winners, well some! Taken in the Orange Bar
 











TORREGOLF at Font del Llop



Event 153 - TORREGOLF at Font del Llop Monday 4th.March 2019


Yes this Sun scenario in the beginning of March is becoming a joke…..sorry no it’s beautiful this is why we are here and today it gave us a fantastic day of golf at one if the best if not the best golf course on the Costa Blanca. How we love Font del Llop and why we always get packed houses as it were when we play there. Today was no exception with 32 playing our usual Stableford shot gun when we are here. The only regret was that I had to pull out at the last moment!!!!. However those that did play obviously found it pretty good and not as difficult as this course can be and to show it 19 members that played managed to break the 30 point barrier we invariably talk about.
Weather was as I have said was perfect, as may be seen in our winners photograph on the Terrace. The course was in great condition, so without further ado the results starting with the Full Monte who was a long way off that 30 barrier yes Derek Cooper with 14 points, oh dear Derek….you must try harder particularly when playing off 18! Will put it down to just “a bad day at the office”.
Nearest the Pins.
Hole 3. Sverre Sonesen. Hole 8. Elly Van Himbergen.
Hole 12. Graham Jolly. Hole 16. Joe Curran and Hole 17. Mark Spencer

TORREGOLF at Alicante



Event 151 - TORREGOLF at Alicante Golf Friday 22nd.February 2019


It’s been over a year since we last visited this Seve Ballesteros designed course in the centre of Alicante. The only thing with playing there is that it’s not the easiest of courses to find, however, once there you can look forward to a challenge on this course with 6 of everything.
Today was no exception with one member getting lost and scores that not only showed perhaps it was an easy ride and others that struggled. As I understand it the conditions were just perfect for playing with course in great condition and weather matching, so without further to do. The results in just 2 categories today.
Category 1. 1st.Mike Jenkins 37 points 2nd. Stephen Rollings 34 3rd. Sverre Soneson 33 and 4th. Ray Rumble 31 points
Category 2. 1st.Vince Lannon 41 points 2nd. Kevin Hopkins 39 3rd. Alan Perry 33 and 4th. John Stead 28 points.
Best Front 9. Vince Lannon 22 points on a c/b from Mike Jenkins and Alan Perry

Nearest the Pins. Hole 3 Sverre Soneson. Hole 8 Ray Rumble Hole 12 Ken Holmes Hole 17 Ray Rumble no one on Holes 6 & 15.
The Full Monte winged its way once again to Elly van Himbergen but only just because it was a count back from Kath Robinson and Malcolm Waters all with 19 points
The scratch card today was Bolton and the winner was John Stead.
Our photograph to day taken on the lawn outside the Club House shows all the winners enjoying the late afternoon sun.
 
Our picture today shows some of the winners on the upstairs Terrace. The others that went please note there is always a winners photo after the results, as you know, so if you go, you wont be able to throw darts at yourself when the picture is published? Also note, some think summer has arrived ….sporting short trousers!











TORREGOLF at Bonalba



Event 150 - Torregolf at Bonalba Friday 15th.February 2019


On a day that was not the warmest but have to say, was very pleasant, a smaller amount of members arrived early for a shot gun start at 09.36 and once again we have to report a no show. This not only causes problems with the course but also on the cost, so I once again wish to advise members that they receive plenty of notice regarding playing and are reminded that penalties are in place for no shows.
The course I am told was in pretty good condition though there is still room for improvement, with the greens like greased lightning which obviously was reflected in the scores with over half of those playing beating that barrier of 30 points +, so well done to all! So for the results, starting with the Full Monte in support of our football team
who have now moved out of the relegation zone and up to 8th. in the table and the surprise for this was SverreSonesen with 22 points, obviously not your day Sverre.
Nearest the pins,unfortunately the pin for Hole 4 went walk abouts and has still not returned the other winners Hole 8. Mike Jenkins Hole 11. Stephen Brown Hole 14. Colum O’Carrell.
Best Front 9. Patrick Kidney 22 points and
Best Back 9. Terry Sharley on a c/b from Dorian Brooksby and Stephen Brown all with 20 points.
Our scratch card winner today with Tottenham was Vince Lannon
Lastly Category winners
Category 1.1st.Mark Redmond 38 points 2nd. Colum O’Carroll and on a count backfrom 3rd. Dermot Kilgallen both with 35 points.
Category 2. 1st.Terry Sharley 36 points on a c/b 2nd. Dorian Brooksby and 3rd. Mike Jenkins all with 36 points.
Category 3.1st. Brian Booton 40 points 2nd.John Stead 36 and 3rd. Gordon Roxon 33 points.

Finally I would like to let you know that the week after next we are at Escula de Golf in Elche and on that day we will be presenting a cheque to the Elche Childrens Home for over 1300 Euros so if you are not down to play why not come along and witness it all for this great Charity.

TORREGOLF at El Plantio



Event 149 - Torregolf at El Plantio Thursday 7th.February 2019


What a day…..it looks as if Spring has sprung when visiting our home course today with just perfect conditions and sunshine to go with it and course in good condition and greens very true though have to say wish players would repair pitch marks because many holes were very bad. They were not the easiest to read today, and this probably reflected on what were today not the best of scores with only 9 members breaking the sound barrier at 30 points+.
As usual with El Plantio great to see so much work going on with all the palm trees for which there are hundreds, lookingvery prestigious having all been cut recently.
That all out of the way THE RESULTS today with just 3 prizes of prize money in the 3 Categories

TORREGOLF at La Finca



Event 148 - Torregolf at La Finca Tuesday 29th.January 2019


What a joy for me to play golf for the first time in 8 months and yes there was some trepidation when teeing up on the 10th! However, being last out it gave me the chance, if it wasn’t going to happen to drop out should the knee give out on me……but it didn’t! , and heavily strapped I managed 18 holes, brilliant.
So yes, when at La Finca and with large number’s always wanting to play, today 31, we always play off Tee 1 & 10 so that there is not long delays from start to finish at this great course and where we always have a good turnout, however to day we had some no shows which is a shame and of course that means a 50% green fee fine for those not turning up.
Whilst the weather was not that warm and for most part of the day cloudy for those that did play, everyone enjoyed the course which was in good condition with the greens playing true and reasonably fast, even though many were showing little brown patches from where they had been repaired over the weeks.
Scores were not that particularly good, with only 10 members breaking the 30 barrier but then this is not the easiest of courses to play as many found out today.
Now for the results in 3 Categories
Category 1.
1st. John Mitchell 34 points 2nd.Ken Holmes 32 3rd. Jim Imrie 31 and 4th. Ray Rumble 30 points
Category 2.
1st. Arnie Kilnes 32 points 2nd. Mike Zebadee 30 3rd. Yes, Mr.Bojangles, me! 29 points and 4th.Colin McCoy with 27 points
Category 3.
1st. Alan Perry for the 2nd.week on the trot 36 points 2nd. Steve Boxer 33 points 3rd. Steve Woolcock on a countback from 4th.Kevin Hopkins and PatGingell. All with 29 points
Best Front 9. Terry Sharley 18 points on a c/b from Steve Boxer and Best Back 9 again on a count back was Mike Zebadee from Alan Perry both with 21 points.
Nearest the Pins.
Hole 3. Pat Gingell Hole. 6. Mark Johnson Hole 13.Jim Imrie and Hole 16. Mike Jenkins.
Lastly The Full Monte in support of our football team CD Montesinos who next week will undergo a new pitch so VAMOS MONTE, was Stuart Massie with just 10 points

TORREGOLF at Roda



Event 147 - Torregolf at Roda Golf Wednesday 22nd.January 2019


Today saw 32 members take to the motorway down to Roda for which some it was their first visit as we have not been there for nearly 4 years. While I was not playing I understand the course was in pretty good condition greens were reasonably good but slow and the fairways were a long way from the tee boxes. Scores were not particularly high with only 9 managing to break the 30 points barrier. Could this be down to many playing the course for the first time or the extreme chilly conditions because yes it was cold and there was no sun to give some hope of getting warm.
However, the general consensus was, yes, thoroughly enjoyable and want to play again so if that’s the case it’s a long way off being the 8th. July so if you want to play get on line and book NOW.

TORREGOLF at El Plantio



Event 146 - Torregolf at El Plantio Monday 14th.January 2019


Today with a late start of 11.28 and perfect conditions for playing golf just 25 members were able to enjoy a great days golf at our home course and at the same time saved 15 Euros on our normal costs thanks to a special offer obtained from our friends at El Plantio.
Though I was not playing I did manage to take a short trip round the course and while there were a few patches on the fairways the course was in great condition with a reasonable temperature, certainly better than last week when they had one day when the temperature was -5 and no golf was playable till 11.00. Well it is winter here and sometimes these things happen.
With a late start it obviously had an effect on the winners photo because there were long shadows for the winners photograph on the terrace at El Plantio. However who cares when you’ve had a great day’s golf!
So for the results in just 2 Categories today, not easy for the checking of cards with so many count backs so you can see how close it was.
Category 1. 1st. Con Moore on a count back from 2nd. Brian Walsh and 3rd. Mike Jenkins all with 35 points 4th.John Mitchell 31 points.
Category 2. 1st. Steve Boxer on a count back from 2nd. Elly Van Himbergen both with 38 points 3rd. Malcolm Watters 34 and 4th. on a c/b from Alan Perry was Special K both with 33 points.
Best Front 9. Alan Perry 21 points
Best Back 9. Also with 21points and again on a c/b from Bran Walsh was Con Moore
Nearest the pins.
Hole 7. John Mitchell Hole 9. Derrick Cooper Holes 14 and 18.Con Moore and on the Torregolf Hole 12th. 4th. shot NTP, Tony Mackman

Finally the scratch card was won by Elly Van Himbergen with Wolves. A very good day for Elly.

TORREGOLF at Escula de Golf



Event 145 - Torregolf at Escula de Golf Thursday 10th.January 2019


Today in what can only be described as acceptable weather not that hot but not that cold, 20 members returned to that gem of a golf course which I described as our Oasis in the centre of the Desert, yes Elche. Not the easiest of courses to find as Brian Booton found out!
Will make no more comment Brian, you will go the Ball (sorry the course) never fear and you will enjoy because this course will certainly sort the wheat from the chaff, trust me!
The greens are lightning fast so that’s something most of our members are not in the habit of seeing.
Well done Escula de Golf. We all look forward to being with you again on the 28th.February. So if you are not already down to play….come on get your name down, you will not be disappointed!

As this is only a Par 3 course the scores will not go through for handicap purposes.
Highlight’s of the day a Hole in 1 on hole 6 for Nick Turner returning to the fold after a couple of year’s absence and me attempting to play for the 1st time in 6 months!
However, yes I managed to do 18 holes and though a little tired at the end it was most enjoyable. Just hope I wont be that long before I can tackle a full 18 holes
There were no NTP’s to day and many of the delights we have on our other Events and the scores today will not be allowed for the handicap system.
So the results after 18 holes and everyone gets a mention, regret no photographs.
1st. Nick Turner 48 points
2nd. Shared between Rob Ridgeway and David Winder

TORREGOLF at La Finca



Event 144 - Torregolf at La Finca, Friday 4th.January 2019


 
What a way to start the New Year for Torregolf with 45 members playing La Finca which was in excellent condition, however, playing off the Blue Tees today as part of an experiment to speed the game up along with new golf rules was treated with yes and no comments and is under future discussion from Captain Kevin Hopkins and his team.
The day was further enhanced when we all returned to Chandelier The Showbar in La Finca for the results and the usual FREE food and discounted drinks to find that Gareth & Matt were surprising us with also live entertainment in the shape of the great Lady Jazz, a favourite of Torregolf members. Many thanks Guys, and a big kiss for Anita. What a way to finalise our day.
Now for the golf, what can one say some good scores and some bad like the Full Monte in support of our football team CD Montesinos,which today went to Hans Ovrum with 15 points. You will see how it was that scores were up and down with the attached photograph showing Captain Special K, about to sink a putt on the 9th.from about 2 feet ……and missed! Also in the back ground is Per Borg missing his shot out of the bunker and subsequently picking up!
