Captains Day at Golf Del Sur

leave a comment »

Saturday sees a big day in the golfing calendar for the members and guests of The Golf del Sur golf club. We have around 8o playing in a Stableford competition over 18 holes with some great prizes for each category along with nearest the pins and longest drives.

Afterwards there is a dinner dance with  a champagne reception at the clubhouse so a chance for some to get suited and booted.

The event this year is shadowed by the loss of  the serving Captain Mr Gwyn Evans who passed away 16th November 2009 . His Vice captain stepped up to take over the role as captain. As  a tribute to Gwyn all the money raised and entry fees for the competition are going to Gwyn’s favourite charity, The White Feathers at La Chafiras

I will be playing and have invited the President and Captain of Amigolf Juan Antonio Gallindo and Jose Miguel Martin-Fdez Periquet to play with me along with Past captain of the Peanuts Golf Society Mr Jim O’ Connell. As you can see I am in exalted company so better be on my best behaviour.

I hope the weather stays kind as another storm is forecast , but as I sit here and type this its 25c outside with not a cloud in the sky, so lets hope we are lucky.

Update Here are the Photo’s from the evening dinner dance

Dougie (the Scot’s marshal/Starter)  known to many of golfers who have played Golf Del Sur Golf course, has just returned to work today after a new hip operation which he had some 9 weeks ago here in Tenerife. Still in a little discomfort but keen to get back to work he was back on the tee at 8.00am this morning.

DSCF1668 Notice the snow on the mountain behind yet on the course it was 25c

Must be us Scot’s were made from girders as it says in the Iron Bru advert.

Nice to see you back Dougie…….

The Game we play It’s Called Golf

leave a comment »

  • In primitive society, when native tribes beat the ground with clubs and yelled, it was called witchcraft; today, in civilized society, it is called golf.
  • The man who takes up golf to get his mind off his work soon takes up work to get his mind off golf.
  • Golf was once a rich man’s sport, but now it has millions of poor players!
  • Golf is an expensive way of playing marbles.
  • The secret of good golf is to hit the ball hard, straight and not too often.
  • There are three ways to improve your golf game: take lessons, practice constantly … or start cheating.
  • An amateur golfer is one who addresses the ball twice … once before swinging, and once again, after swinging.
  • Many a golfer prefers a golf cart to a caddy because it cannot count, criticize or laugh.
  • Golf is a game in which the slowest people in the world are those in front of you, and the fastest are those behind.
  • Golf: A five mile walk punctuated with frequent disappointments.
  • There’s no game like golf: you go out with three friends, play eighteen holes, and return with three enemies.
  • Golf got its name because all of the other four letter words were taken.

Just to Brighten up one’s day !

“I play golf in the low eighties,” I was telling one of the youngsters at the club yesterday.

“Wow,” said the young man, “that’s pretty impressive.”

“Not really,” I said, “Any hotter and I’d probably have a stroke.”

Happy New year from Wifie and I….
