One of the benefits of living on the Costa Blanca is year round golf. Although winter is now upon us we still are able to play the full course – we do not have winter tees (or mats) and we still play to normal greens (no temporaries).

On occasion, and perhaps surprisingly to some, we can get a morning frost. However this not an extended period of deep seated ground frost as experienced in the UK. Rather it is a strange phenonomen which occasionally occurs ( probably more in January or February ) at sunrise.

At that time the air temperature drops quite dramatically causing a fine frost purely on the top layer of grass. As our Society is usually first away this can delay our start for up to an hour and half. When the sun gets higher in the sky and produces heat the starter opens the course and away we go to enjoy another round of golf in the sunshine.

Seasonal greetings to all who have joined us during 2018 and GAGS members hope everyone has an enjoyable Christmas.

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