Known as golfing friendly places to stay in Tenerife Spring Hoteles also have an annual tournament and this year it was staged at Golf Las Americas on Saturday 10 September with a strong mixed field of 130 players. There is always a touch of style to this event and entrants were greeted with a goodie bag containing a polo shirt, cap, and golf towel before the days play got underway using the stableford individual format.
A combination of warm Tenerife weather and excellent course conditions meant the players were soon at the ninth hole where freshly cooked treats and drinks awaited them from the buffet at the Arona Gran Hotel, a much appreciated touch, the sort of thing thatÂ Spring Hoteles are noted for. A pleasant rest over, the competition resumed with a keen but friendly edge in the five categories.
- MENS WINNERS
- First Category – Alexjandro Grande, 39 points off a 3 handicap
- Second Category – Tomas Aramas, 40 points off 18 handicap
- Third Category – Andres Guerra, 42 points off 20 handicap
- WOMENS WINNERS
- First Category – Maria Jerez, 39 points off 11 handicap
- Second Category – Karin Beels – 37 points off 22 handicap
Each winner received a glass trophy and as top scratch player Alexjandro also got a luxury watch.Â The prize giving cocktail party took place at the Arona Gran Hotel in the evening ensuring a full return of players and partnersÂ for the food, drink, and good company. Spring Hoteles made the day complete by donating prizes to the grand draw including a trip to the UK for 2 people including a weeks stay.
