The John Lowe Golf Classic at Amarilla Golf Tenerife 18th September …Still places left

leave a comment »

The John Lowe Golf Classic is now in it’s 6th year at Amarilla Golf and Country Club, Tenerfe…Successive club captains have made it part of their charity, and members have given wonderful support, not only entering teams, but also sponsoring individual tee’s.

The day begins with team photographs, and light refreshment, before the team’s head off to their respective Tee’s, at 10am the claxon sounds, and play begins. The format is Stableford, the best 2 scores to count at each hole, drinks are provided on some tee’s, and the refreshment cart is never far away. The golf is fiercely competitive, but also very friendly, at 3pm all teams are back at the club house, and the banter begins, “How did you do” “I hit the pin on the 5th” “If we had not missed so many putt’s” and of course the team who have 90 points, and are quietly confident they are the winners.Everyone is kept entertained by a Spanish group of musicians, and the barbecue gets under way.

A charity auction is held, with some great lots to bid for, weekends in 5 star hotels, a trip to La Gomera on Fred Olsens fast cat, and many others. The day ends with the awards presentation, everything finished for 6pm. This year John Lowe will be joined by Eric Bristow and Bob Anderson, making the event a triple Legends Classic. There are places left at this time. for more information, how to enter, etc. contact John at: jloweprodart@aol.com

I won’t be playing as it clashes with the Tenerife Golf Circuit  as I am in the top 20 rankings I will be playing the circuit….

After the golf they present the prizes and  hold a super raffle for all competitors. It’s a great day out, I wrote this from last years tournament, where I may add Wifie won an all-inclusive break at a Spring Hotel , we both had a great time with super food on our visit to the 4* Hotel so I’m hoping we win a break this year too……

My spies tell me that due to the success of their last golf tournament held at Amarilla Golf Course Oasis Fm, the British South Tenerife based radio station, are considering holding another tournament in December this year.

I missed the last Oasis Fm tournament due to other golf commitments, not like Joe Ferguson who’s only lame excuse was that his lovely wife was in labour, but I will try this time to play in the event as they all seemed to have so much fun last time round. So if it’s on lads and December is the Date let me know so I can pencil you in …..

By all accounts a very handsome chap indeed !

Sir Old Golfer is a Golf sports writer who’s only interest in life at his age is to play as much golf as possible and write about it when its dark, he still plays to a 5 handicap in local club competitions most weeks and is the Golf Del Sur Golf  Club Champion 2008/2010. He spends a lot of time playing in golf tournaments on the Island and especially enjoys the Circuit Tenerife-La Gomera an event spearheaded by the Tenerife Golf Association which allows amateur players to play competitively on all the championship courses on the island.

Another hobby is photography and he enjoys covering all the local golf events and taking snaps of the small towns and villages around the beautiful island he lives on. Here is a link to his photograph albums

Just one of my Lovely Offices !

He is compiling this Blog to allow others who love Golf and Tenerife as much as he does to share his passion and times on the fairways. The older I have become the better a golfer, in my mind anyway,  I used to be !

“Should we ever meet on the fairways of life, please stop, smile and say hello as unconditionally life, is in fact far too short.”

Heading Overseas to play Golf but this time not too far

leave a comment »

So here  I am off again overseas to play golf, one of the drawbacks of living on an island, but this time I am really looking forward to it as I will be travelling by Fred Olsen Express ferry rather than by plane as I am going to  La Gomera , a small island off the West Coast of Tenerife, about 40 min by Olsen fast ferry.

Fred Olsen runs  the ferry service to the island from Los Cristianos in Tenerife , you may have seen their big yellow ferry’s in the harbour at Los Cristianos to San Sebastian in La Gomera,, The golf course we are going to play and hotel of Jardin Tecina is also owned and operated by Fred Olsen SL. as you  would expect from one of the Islands foremost companies both are amongst the best in the Canaries.

jardin golf

Don’t take my word for it have a look at the Jardin Tecina Web site and you will see the views and condition of the Golf Course are second to none with the hotel built in a village style  which complements the islands beauty but has all the requirements of the most concerning clients.

This U tube Video gives you the experience that’s only 40 min away but out of this world if you love Golf.

This is the fifth  match in the 1vTenerife and La Gomera Golf circuit is being played at the Tecina Golf Course on Saturday 7th August 2010. The circuit over the years has went from strength to strength due to the work put in by the Golf Association, the courses themselves and the sponsorship of the many Island based companies who all help make the day run smoothly and that all the participants have a fun day out.

Jardin Tecina 1

The circuit this year is also open to both residents and holiday makers alike and for just 50 Euro you get a round at the championship course , the presentation of prizes, refreshments and a great opportunity to mix with the  locals and tourists who both have one aim in common ..to enjoy good competitive golf on a championship course in the Sun..

Hotel Jardin Tecina and Tecina Golf are offering a special rate to circuit players and partners  of just 49 Euros per person per night on a half board basis, single person supplement of 15 Euros is applicable and bookings are subject to availability.

Hotel Jardin Tecina can be contacted on 0034 902222140 or by email tecina@fredolsen.es full details are on the website www.jardin-tecina.com. If you want to book a round at Tecina Golf call 0034 902222130, email tecinagolf@fredolsen.es
