leave a comment »

 

This Saturday the 11th September sees the “Grand final” of this years golf circuit being held at Golf Del Sur Golf Course a wonderful championship course in the South of Tenerife.

 DSCF1288_edited

So far this summer we have played 7 matches on the circuit covering all the major courses on Tenerife and the Island of La Gomera with an average of 140/160 players in each tournament.

The grand final at Golf del Sur will feature the top 20 from each category, playing by ranking order, in a stableford format, competing for the final placing in this years circuit.

Gentlemen                   Ladies                    Classification       

1st Category                         1st Category                  Seniors        

2nd Category                       2nd Category                Scratch

                                                  3rd Category

At the moment I am sitting 11th in category 1 and 12th in the scratch so am eligible to play in the grand final. This is the first year I have competed in the full circuit, missing only one match, I have found that the comradeship amongst the competitors fantastic as we all get to know each other moving from one tournament to the other regardless of nationality or language ( as not too many speak Scot’s ) .

The organisation at each course has been first class with all the score cards and handicaps being done in a professional manner. The sponsorship from all the participating companies has helped put the circuit into the position of the number one golf tournament in the Canaries.

If you are participating in the “Grand Final” The cost will be 50 € per person.

Golfing In Tenerife visits Costa Adeje Golf Course in Tenerife

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.

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…….

Coming up in February 2010 here on Golfing Tenerife ….

I have some exciting things lined up this February here on Golfing in Tenerife…..starting with an interview with a long established golf pro on the island who is going out of his way to accommodate me with some tips, help and pictures. We have a full golf course review of one of the islands top courses with beautiful pictures and an interview with their general manager on how he see’s the future of Golf in Tenerife, which should be interesting.

On the restaurant review side, I have a new restaurant reviewer for the south of Tenerife and I have promised to do a review myself on a local restaurant that we use on a regular basis…Well they promised me a free beer !
