A GROUP of 14 members from Taunton & Pickeridge Golf Club have recently returned from the El Rompido Golf Resort in Spain where they enjoyed a week's tuition tour with Head Professional, Jason Avery.

During the time away there were group and individual coaching sessions most mornings and a competition on either the North or South course in the afternoon, after which there was plenty of socialising in the bar before dinner! 

The competitions were organised by Jason Avery  in such a way to ensure that everyone in the group got to play with different combinations of people. The whole week was great fun, and on the last night there was a prize giving.

In addition there was also an Away Day at the renowned Monte Rei GC just over the border into Portugal where the group played as individual stableford and tried, unsuccessfully for most, to stay out of the water or one of the 86 bunkers! 

One of the group Jan Hill said: “Whether you played well or badly it was a great experience and the facilities and extras enjoyed were a treat. 

“They say that the rain in Spain stays mainly on the Plain, and although I'm not sure if our location was on the plain, boy, did it rain at times! However we all defied the weather and enjoyed the tour immensely.”
