    1st Tourneo Circuito Aymerich 2010 at Golf Del Sur Golf Course Tenerife

    leave a comment »

    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.

    DSCF2083The view from the first tee as the sun comes up 8.02am

    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…

    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.

    DSCF1288_edited

    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
