On 7th August, Las Palmeras Golf Society was sponsored by the Hotel Grand Teguise Playa for a long-awaited tournament that had been postponed twice because of the pandemic. A record number of golfers competed eagerly for two great prizes: a hotel weekend for two, and dinner for two in the Malvasia restaurant.

The format of the competition was stableford and because of the high number of players, the Costa Teguise Golf Club allowed teeing off from both the first and the tenth tees. Midsummer is hot and very dry in Lanzarote, but the golf course is still in good shape. Alex, the greenkeeper, and his team are doing an excellent job. Working at dawn and dusk, these workers don’t usually get the recognition that they certainly deserve.
The competition was fierce and only a single point separated the top two golfers. Winning for the second time this year, Anne Rees, from Güime, scored a very good 35 points, playing off 23.2. Her new handicap is now 21.6. Anne joined Las Palmeras Golf Society only recently and with two wins in two months, she has shown that she is a force to be reckoned with! In second place was Ricardo Whitlock with 34 points. The trophies and prizes were presented by Melo Hernandez, the Society´s Captain.
