Tuesday 23rd October 2007: Why not go to Spain in February --- There must be a few Renfrewshire Players that would like to take part--- Message from Colin Farquharson



February 10 to 23 at Hacienda del Alamo Golf Resort, Murcia, Spain

Hope you can come to Hacienda del Alamo for the above event which offers you a minimum of six competitions plus unlimited use of the five-star golf resort's driving range and short-game facilities for 14 days.

They say that Murcia is the warmest place in Spain during the month of February. I am taking their word for it.

The  final details with regard to the above event which is planned as a "stepping stone" to the inaugural 2009 Murcia Ladies Open Developmental Tour, open to lady professionals & single-figure lady amateurs, from early January to late February/early March in 2009.

Details of how to book accommodation at Hacienda del Alamo Golf Resort for February 10 to 23, 2008 are now included in the attachment which also indicates that the Hacienda del Alamo management are providing free practice rounds, free use of the of short-game practice facilities and free balls on the driving range for a one-off payment of 55 Euros, to be paid when checking in at the Tournament Desk on either the first or second Sunday of the Festival programme.

The payment covers the whole of the programme and is a bargain when one considers what the normal charges are for green fees, range balls and using the practice facilities.

Remember no tournament entry fees have to be paid until you check in at the Tournament Desk but it would be appreciated if competitors could E-mail Tournament Controller Colin Farquharson at the date of their arrival at Hacienda del Alamo Golf Resort.

If you have any queries at any time, please do not hesitate to contact me. Please spread the word among your friends, professional and amateur. Accommodation costs a lot less individually if up to six share a villa. Click Here to See attachment.
