Dave Lloyd and Graham White arranged our first away day yesterday.

It was a great success with 17 players (inc 8 ladies) taking the 30 minute trip to Corvera Golf & Country club.

For a green fee of only 15E we got a free pull trolley and 18 holes of very pleasant golf.

The course has much maturing to do yet but with preferred lies on the fairways it was very enjoyable. With little rough and flat greens it was a pleasant change from the monster at Condado.

It has a superb practice area with mats on the driving range and modern under cover driving bays.

The development looked even quieter than Condado with no sign of residents.

The manager made us very welcome and couldn’t do enough for us (Polaris take note). He came round the course with food and drinks, asking if we were enjoying it and after the game put a BBQ on in the car park outside their prefabricated bar.

It was great sitting in the sun with a beer and food with good company (from England, Ireland, Norway, Denmark and Sweden).

What a change in customer service – we have been offered the same deal until the end of May.

Of course I asked if prices went down in summer and what were the twilight prices?

At that price you can’t beat it so suggest  you give it a try.
