Local Events and Fiestas

Six intrepid golfers came to Fuerteventura for the New Year celebrations. As part of their holiday they decided to export the bearsted Golfer/Non-golfer format to the Mirador de Lobos Golf course in Corralejo.


Geoff, Ian & Rob were partnered by their spouses Paulina, Doreen & Carol.


To make the game a little more interesting they were joined by a resident golfer, Stella. Her non golfing partner was none other than our editor, Penny.



Stella drove the first ball off the first tee and the game was on.

Rob drove next and the Bearsted Golf club reply was launched.








Penny was not too sure were to put the flag so Rob had to help her. She had been looking for a sandcastle to put the flag on.

Paulina has an easy putt, thanks to a clever chip from Geoff, to keep Bearsted in the game.


Then disaster struck at the water hazard! Stella put 2 drives into the pond and the Fuerte resident's game was just about over.

Harmony at the end of the round.

Back at the clubhouse checking the scores.

Geoff and Paulina ran out the eventual winners with Ian & Doreen tying with Rob & Carol for 2nd /3rd place.
Stella & Penny never really recovered after the water hazard but have vowed to put in some practice before the return match.
