This month we would like to describe our competition format and also give some news as to the Society meetings held in March.

Our competitions are mainly stablefords, played off full handicap. All golfers contribute €5 to the prize pot which is all returned according to the winning places. For example, on Tuesdays we pay out to the winner and second placed golfers and , if numbers permit to third place. On Fridays we pay the overall winner, best front nine and best back nine ( a golfer can only win one of these prizes to ensure a wider distribution of prize money). On Fridays we also have a nearest the pin prize.

Occasionally in order to provide some variety we might throw in a medal round or secret partners competition or, if circumstances permit, a Texas Scramble.

As for March meetings, as well as our usual core members, numbers were increased by the holiday home owners who came to GA perhaps to escape the UK weather (!) but more likely to celebrate in Spanish style St Patrick’s Day and the onset of Easter festivities.

Finally, thank you to GA Advertiser for running these articles on behalf of GAGS and it has been great to welcome a number of new golfing friends generated as a result of these articles -the more the merrier.

As always new members and/or guests are welcome, whether a full time resident or someone with your own holiday home or a holiday maker in the region – we would love to see you.
