Gary Ashcroft Golf Trip – Spain 2014

Hi Stuart
Well where do I start, what a fantastic week with the golf and weather. The Hotel Bali nothing but good things to say about it, the staff were excellent couldn’t do enough for you, the food was plentiful and every evening meal different and enjoyable, the evening entertainment was worth staying in for and the selection of drinks goes without saying all round and excellent hotel. Please pass on our thanks.


Now down to the most important bit the golf…

Saturday – La Cala – America great course but very hard.

Sunday – La Cala – Asia Fantastic course but very hard.

Tuesday – Calanova – last year we played it six times this year still a nice course but the greens and some of the fairways were a bit worn and patchy in places but still a course worth visiting. We met a party of guys there, who I gave your business card to and so you might get an inquiry, as I said, I had used many different tour operators before and yours was the best by a long, long way.

Wednesday – Lauro – we have always enjoyed playing here, this year was very different as it poured down with rain just as we were tee-ing off got soaked through, and then by the 6th hole we were all bone dry.

Thursday – La Cala – Europa absolutely astounding what a collection of amazing golf holes but like the other two La Cala courses very hard, maybe the next time we might do them justice.

Every course we played even though some were very busy, we hardly saw anybody out on the courses, a week of millionaires golf.


So on behalf of the six of us, I would like to thank you and your company very much for making our stay in Benalmadena thoroughly enjoyable. And as for the golf, at times it was extremely frustrating as the courses were both challenging and demanding but that was easily forgotten as the stunning views and how picturesque the courses were made it all worthwhile.


We shall be back,
Best regards,
