It is with great sadness that we resume this year’s golf without one of the Society’s founder members and past captain, Barry Conron, who passed away on 30 January. Barry was a true gentleman who epitomised everything we associate with the game of golf; courtesy, integrity and fair play. He will be greatly missed by all society members who send their condolences to his wife, Anne and their family.

For those who have recently taken up residency and are considering playing golf on a regular basis, GAGS have negotiated very favourable rates with El Plantio. New members are always welcome as are those of you with holiday homes, making regular visits throughout the year or visitors to the region.

At the time of writing, El Plantio is closed in accordance with regulations. If this restriction is lifted before the end of February, the tee-times will be 9am. If the course reopens in March, the tee-time will revert to the usual 8am tee-time (more details below).

The Society details are as follows:


El Plantio Golf Resort. The official address is A-79, Km3, 03114, Alicante.


The formal Society Day is Tuesday’s weekly when all golfers are most welcome. In addition, we have an informal get together on Friday’s weekly which has always been a Gentleman’s Day.


Both days normally at 8am so please be there by 7.40am.  Occasionally the Starter may request we change the time so unless you are a regular golfer it would be best to check with us beforehand.


Usually 50 euros per round at peak times to include a buggy plus 1.50 euros mandatory insurance charge.   This can be cheaper during less busy off peak seasons. In addition, the Society requires 5 euros sweep money which is all paid out at the end of the round.

We would love to see you!
