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.

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.

The Second Outing of the 1V 2010 Tenerife and La Gomera Golf Circuit

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

    Zulu and Golf in Tenerife what can they possibly have in common ?

    with 3 comments

    The first thing that intrigued me was the name, I mean who would call a charity that’s holding a Golf day at Costa Adeje Golf Course in Tenerife, “Ingane Yami” so I set of to Callao Salvaje on Tenerife’s West Coast to find out from the man behind the golf day South African James Beckley.

    On meeting James, and his assistant Gina, the first question I had was “why the name Ingane Yami ?” “ You don’t speak Zulu then ?” James laughed and went on to explain that Ingane Yami means “My Children” In Zulu. I then got the picture, What a great name !

    AfricanChildren

    The reason why its such a great name is that in two words, although to many alien, it sums up the whole concept of the charity, “ My Children.” Yes we are all God’s children some born more fortunate than others in this world.

    The idea behind the charity,with all the money raised, is to build a children’s village children’s. The village of  Ingane Yami will consist of 25 individual houses, each of which will be home to 6 children of varying ages and a “house mother”, thus recreating a stable family unit and enabling these vulnerable children to be brought up in a loving, Christian environment which in turn will grow leaders to take care of the future. This is not a new concept but a proven formula which has been shown to work very successfully  at Watoto Village in Uganda.

    From my point of view I think it’s a great idea a game of golf at one of the premier courses on Tenerife and being able to help such a great charity at the same time.

    So please ring Gina and get involved and I hope to see you at Costa Adeje Golf Course on Saturday June 5th 2010..

    All proceeds from the day’s events will be donated to the Ingane Yami Children’s Village Charity. Why not become a fan of theirs on Facebook, or  follow them on Twitter and take a look at their Photos on Flickr.

    The event starts at 9.00am and it promises to be a great day.

    The format will be:
    Pairs
    2-ball better ball
    Shotgun Start

    Entry fee is €50 per person and this includes Buggy & Buffet
    Places for this event are limited so to make sure you are registered please book early.

    To reserve your entry please contact either of the following:
    Email: gina@pearlygrey.com or telephone Gina on 657 628 544

    Golfing In Tenerife visits Costa Adeje Golf Course in Tenerife

    leave a comment »

    Just thought I would take my camera and take a few shots of Costa Adeje golf course as I am playing here with Club Amigolf on 10th April 2010, also to have a look at the overall layout and condition. Last year Costa Adeje Golf hosted the Tenerife Ladies European Tour event to great success and has more recently been the venue for a Rod Stewart and Elton John concerts.

    The director Mr Paul De Sterck was more than helpful giving me access to all areas and supplying me with a buggy to get round the course. The course is moving into low season after a very busy winter but it was surprisingly busy on the day I visited.

    The course I must say was in fantastic condition and the greens have held up well over winter and were lightning fast, as was commented on by some of the players I spoke with that day.

    I must also add a comment on the buffet lunch, which for research purposes only I just had to try, It’s an all you can eat set up with a large  salad bar with everything you could expect including smoked salmon to a grill area with chicken, steak and pork followed by the most delicious sweets. It was honestly some of the best food I have had at a golf club and for a set price.The lunch service on the Terrace was full with many non golfers taking advantage of the fine food on offer as the restaurant area is open to the public but the dress code must be observed.

    I am immensely  looking forward to Saturdays competition and Amigolf have negotiated a special price for members to include green fee, buggy and the buffet lunch…will my waistline cope ? …you bet it will.
