2020 Away weekend

2020 Away weekend – Valle Del Este

Saturday 29th February & Sunday 1st March saw the 7th Annual Costa Calida Golf Tours Away Weekend, and for the 7th year Valle del Este Golf Resort was the venue. Its perfect for a short golfing stay with everything you need close by and the 62 clients who attended had a fantastic couple of days.

Valle Del Este Hotel

We met at the hotel on Saturday morning around 10am, checked in and the golfers then took advantage of the great practice facilities prior to teeing off from 11.03am. The par 72 course is a good test for players of all abilities, its in very good condition and its great to see noticeable improvements to many of the holes over the last couple of years.

The 19th hole

After play on Saturday, the majority of golfers joined the non-golfers on the pool terrace in the sunshine for a well earned drink, prior to a quick freshen up and change in time for dinner. The restaurant in the hotel was set up in order to allow us to sit together on large tables for 10. The buffet menu was really good, varied choice of starters, mains (with a specialist chef area) and deserts. Following dinner, we strolled over to the local commercial centre and found a bar…a lovely evening with lots of fun and laughter

Sunday morning, a lovely breakfast from around 8.15am, and then the golfers commenced round two around 9.15am. The lovely weather continued, calm, still and warm and the pace of play was good. Our first 4-ball arrived down the 18th fairway early afternoon, and the other 9 groups steadily followed behind.
