El Rompido- Spain
Rated one of the best facilities for teaching with 2 drving ranges, 2 putting greens, 2 chipping greens and 2 bunker areas. With the accommodation, flights and golf for 12 members of Nazeing GC all prepared all they had to do was turn up. As this time of year has 2 of the members having birthdays' on our arrival date, I thought it would be rude not to arrange a big chocolate birthday cake for the evening...more candles this year!
After a few celebrations the night before, our practice day was calling. But before we started our golf, a good breakfast and a few treats on the table were to be opened.
We started on the putting green to experience the slick greens then moved over to the chipping area, where I demonstrated a variety of shots to explain how the greens will react to different shots and discussed when to play them.
After lunch and quick refreshment, we made our way to the driving range to top up our long game skill. I made my way along the range to see each person and boost their confidence, ready to play the next day.
There were Nearest The Pins each day, an Order Of Merit across the 3 rounds of golf and Par 3 total stableford score. Congratulations to Mandi Hayed for winning the overall and Alison Nicholson for winning the Par 3 contest.
