For the Straight Down the Middle Golf Society June competition, 30 players travelled to the stunning course at Lo Romero. Many of those attending were playing the course for the first time, and everyone was impressed with what we found on our arrival.
The course itself is probably the closest that we have to a British style course, with lush green fairways and quick greens, but a very fair golfing challenge. I think the fact that the buggies had touch screen satellite navigation, which showed you exactly how far from the hole your next shot was, helped in many cases.
However, a few players were caught out, because if you strayed off the straight and narrow and tried to drive to your ball, the buggy stopped dead and reprimanded the driver! Our thanks go to all the staff of Lo Romero for presenting the most beautifully manicured course and great hospitality! After everyone had negotiated the island green at the 18th, we retired back to Trevi Bar on Camposol, where the management treated us to our usual chip butties and some liquid refreshment, for which we are tremendously grateful.
