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.

Abama Golf Course is Next on the Tenerife and La Gomera Circuit

leave a comment »

Saturday 21st August 2010 sees the Golf Tenerife and La Gomera Circuit heading to the West Coast of Tenerife and on to the Abama Golf Complex. (Have a look at this website its  impressive.) The Abama Golf course is a word class facility and gives players from the circuit the chance to play the course at a greatly reduced price.

Thanks to all the sponsors for making it such a great Golf circuit

I love the Abama Golf course with great views, where ever you look, over the ocean towards a Gomera or back towards Mount Teide . It also has one of he best driving ranges and teaching areas on the island where a friend of mine PGA member Mark Pursey is the head Pro.You will need a buggy to play this course, because of the steepness of the terrain, which is included in the price.

Picture 013_editedThis game counts towards the order of merit, I have just scraped into the top 20, so after this one I hope I can make it into the top 10, but whither I do so or not I have enjoyed the circuit immensely this year and met some new and some old friends along the way.

Picture 001_edited

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 holidaymakers alike and for just 100 Euro you get a round on the Abama championship course with buggy, 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..

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

The John Lowe Golf Classic at Amarilla Golf Tenerife 18th September …Still places left

leave a comment »

The John Lowe Golf Classic is now in it’s 6th year at Amarilla Golf and Country Club, Tenerfe…Successive club captains have made it part of their charity, and members have given wonderful support, not only entering teams, but also sponsoring individual tee’s.

P5190021

The day begins with team photographs, and light refreshment, before the team’s head off to their respective Tee’s, at 10am the claxon sounds, and play begins. The format is Stableford, the best 2 scores to count at each hole, drinks are provided on some tee’s, and the refreshment cart is never far away. The golf is fiercely competitive, but also very friendly, at 3pm all teams are back at the club house, and the banter begins, “How did you do” “I hit the pin on the 5th” “If we had not missed so many putt’s” and of course the team who have 90 points, and are quietly confident they are the winners.Everyone is kept entertained by a Spanish group of musicians, and the barbecue gets under way.

P5190028

A charity auction is held, with some great lots to bid for, weekends in 5 star hotels, a trip to La Gomera on Fred Olsens fast cat, and many others. The day ends with the awards presentation, everything finished for 6pm. This year John Lowe will be joined by Eric Bristow and Bob Anderson, making the event a triple Legends Classic. There are places left at this time. for more information, how to enter, etc. contact John at: jloweprodart@aol.com

I won’t be playing as it clashes with the Tenerife Golf Circuit  as I am in the top 20 rankings I will be playing the circuit….
