leave a comment »

oasis header

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 …..

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.

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.

leave a comment »

The second of the 1vTenerife and La Gomera Golf circuit is being played at las Americas Golf Course on Saturday19th June 2010.I  am very disappointed that I  won’t manage to play in this event as I’m in Scotland.This is one of the evnts I was most looking forward to playing ..Golf Las Americas is in fantastic condition with the greens rolling very fast.

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, like Gomasper, who all help make the day run smoothly and that all the participants have a great day out.

The circuit this year is also open to both residents and holidaymakers alike and for just 50 Euro you get a round at the championship course with buggy, 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..

Although not at this event I hope to make the others and I will miss the fellowship of my fellow Tenerife Golfers this weekend..

If your out on holiday and want to play in the event contact the Golf Club directly for all the details just mention the Circuit ..Happy Golfing

The First Golf Shop In The Tourist Area.

leave a comment »

In these days off an economic downturn is so nice to hear of one company that’s expanding and employing more people on the island.The company in question is Going Golfing holidays based here in South Tenerife and owned by the Smith family who are ex-pats from Scotland who have been on the island some 10 years.The smiths are also the owners of the very successful Golf shop in La Chafiras, the one you see from the motorway, also the popular Hole In One for a Holiday game played on golf courses throughout Tenerife

Expansion came to mind when an empty local became available in the 5* Costa Adeje Grand hotel. The Smiths, who have  long standing business connections with the hotel group, jumped at the chance to take the lease having seen the potential for not only selling their golf course booking service, golf club hire, trolley hire and golf concierge service but also for offering upmarket Ladies Golf fashion. Director Paul said “ I thought the shop would be mainly clothing sales and course bookings but after a month of being open I have been pleasantly  surprised at the amount of clubs and iron sets we have sold “

Muriel Smith is in her element buying all the latest styles and colours for her Ladies casual clothing collection, She told me “its not just golfers we cater for in both shops, all women like to buy matching outfits on holiday” Well you can’t argue with that!

From the shop in the hotel guests or non guests can drop in and book their golf,transport and club hire  at the most competitive prices available. The shop will also act as a drop off centre for club repairs or club return.

The Costa Adeje Grand hotel shop opening Hours are 9am-1pm 4pm-8pm Mon- Fri. Sat 9am-1pm.

The Golf shop can be contacted on tel ( 0034) 922-735-808

The IV Circuito de Tenerife and La Gomera started at Beunavista

leave a comment »

It was 5.45 am and the alarm went off, I was in my Hotel the Las Aguilas at Puerto de la Cruz having travelled up from my home in the south the night before. The date May 15th and the first game in the Golf  Tenerife Circuito 2010 held at the beautiful Buenavista golf course in the North of the island.

Leaving the hotel I followed the coast road to the Buenavista course it was dark, cold, windy with smirry rain a big change from the weather I had left in the South the day before. As I approached the course around 7.15am the sky was becoming lighter with the temp rising a bit, but blowing a gale.

DSCF2742

The event at Buenavista  is organised by the Tenerife golf association  and was the first of 7 tournaments held at Golf Courses throughout the island it was  oversubscribed which goes to show the popularity of the Circuito is within the golfing community here in Tenerife with around 160 players registered to play.

My tee off time was 8.05,  the 2nd group out after a three ball, I think the last tee time was around 3pm in the afternoon so a big field indeed and a lot of work for Beatriz and Jaime from the association who were on hand all day, and evening, sorting out the many problems that I’m sure did arise but were not obvious to the competitors.

I finished my game at around 12.30 so I had plenty of time to head back to the hotel in Puerto have a swim and relax as the presentation of prizes I expected to be at around 9pm. I had dinner at the hotel, as the food was excellent, met John Beckley who was staying in the same hotel and we headed back to the Golf course together for the evening reception . We arrived  just in time for the prize giving, just as well as unbeknown to John he had won his category and was presented with a lovely trophy.

I must just mention the Golf course itself, Buenavista Golf which on July 1st- 4th is holding the Tenerife Ladies Open part of the European Tour. The greens for our tournament had been hollow tined, about two weeks before, so putting for us was tricky to say the least but I understand the management and green keepers position as I am sure by the time the Tour gets there the greens will be excellent and after all these Ladies make their living playing golf.

To sum up the day my golf was not up to standard so no prizes for me this time, but I enjoyed  the day,the golf, meeting old friends and some new ones. I am looking forward to the next outing on the circuito Las Americas Golf on June the 19th, here in the South,where I am sure the weather will be much kinder to us soft Scots….
