March 21st saw the first tournament  in the Aymerish  Golf Club  Circuit here at their wonderful golf facility  Golf Del Sur Golf Course in Tenerife.We had fabulous conditions, shorts were the order of the day, with the temp at 25c and very little wind so scoring was good. Golfing in Tenerife were represented by Sir Old Golfer who played off a handicap of 4 in this premier event of the season.The course was in great condition with the greens playing “true.”

Sir Old Golfer had an 8.02 tee time so almost the first group out in a field of about 90 players split into 3 categories. 0-18.4 and 18.5 –28 for males and a female category.

A very welcome sight for all competitors was the tent at the 10th tee where Aymerish golf had supplied us all with refreshments and nibbles. After the golf you were invited back to the tent to fill in your score cards and to enjoy the hospitality once more with a beer or two whilst waiting for the full field to complete their round.

It was great to see a four ball of “Youngin’s” all low handicappers and lovers of the game of golf, who behaved impeccably throughout the day, one of which won the scratch off a handicap of 6…well done to Alvaro, I’ll get you next time.. Another in the group plays off 3, wonderful  I just wish I was that age again…
