Golf for Beginners a Step by Step
Guide to Getting Started with Golf

Golf has become one of the most popular sports in the world, largely due to the fact that it is what many people consider to be the perfect balance between physicality and strategy.  There are certainly more physically-demanding sports out there, which many people enjoy, but while golf may look relatively sedate in comparison, it’s still good exercise and it’s out in the fresh air, which many people consider a bonus.  At the same time, it tests your mind as much as your body and, if you want to play it competitively, even just in friendly matches, you’ll need to be able to keep your nerve.  In team games, your team is there to support you, in one-on-one games like golf, you’re on your own, both literally and metaphorically.  Notwithstanding this, golf has a very strong social element, both on the green and in the clubhouse and in many places golf courses are a great way to meet new people from all kinds of walks of life.

Lauro Golf continues its bid for
golf’s base with the Organization
of two own circuits

 

The players of fifth category with handicaps between 26.5 and 36, the young promising stars of this sport, children and juveniles, will be able to improve their golf every Friday in Lauro Golfs facilities. The resort of Alhaurín de la Torre  is preparing two circuits, which will take place on April 6, with the intention of continuing to support the growth of the sport among youngsters and beginners.

The infant circuit aims to continue the work of unconditional support to the development of young people in the practice of this sport. For years, Lauro Golf, is a reference in the bid to bring golf to children through numerous activities and a very active Academy for children.

To the organization of intensive camps, Easter, Christmas or summer camps, it has been added the support of the infant Academy and membership of the club ‘Golf Joven’ of the Andalusian Golf Federation program. In addition, the resort in Málaga is already a place of prestige within the tours of the infant after organizing some championships of the highest level of amateur in the national field as well as in the andalusian one.

The International Championship of Spain U-18, the Interclubs International Championship of Infant Andalusia or being the fixed headquarters of the Finnish Open, the only infant tournament organized between the Finnish Federation of golf and the Andalusian Golf  Federation, are some good examples of the dedicated support of Lauro Golf for the development and growth of golf among the youngest.

The children’s circuit, in which players can compete from pre-baby to infant category, will take place between the months of April to October 2018. The participants, divided into male and female category, will have to make nine holes under the Stableford modality. The players will choose the eight best results they have obtained during the tour tests, which will be the valid ones to determine the classification by ranking. The three best classified of this itinerary will have a guaranteed place in the final of the ‘Pequecircuito de Andalucía 2018’ to be held in the short field of Lauro Golf.

Lauro Golf continues its bid for golf’s base with the Organization of two own circuits.

This circuit is joined by another itinerary aimed for players of fifth category, golfers with a handicap between 26.5 and 36, players who start playing for whom Lauro Golf has prepared a series of tournaments with the intention of beginning to know about the competitive environment. This new tour follows Lauro Golf’s strategy of supporting the golf base and complements the activities that Lauro Golf Academy is developing to promote the access of  beginner players.

The circuit of the fifth category will take action from April to December 2018, with tests being held every Friday. This circuit will bring the ability to register players with a valid license with handicaps between 26.5 and 36. In addition, the results obtained in the circuit of Lauro Golf will be valid for the Andalusian and national ranking of fifth category.

With these two new circuits, Lauro Golf continues its commitment to the development of golf between new players and those who will be the players of the future. A support to the young golf that we have already seen on numerous occasions and that obtains a new rank with the possibility of young promises  continuing to grow golfing in the facilities of the field of Alhaurín de la Torre.

Lauro Golf continues its bid for golf’s base with the Organization of two own circuits.

Over €4,000 raised for Costa del
Sol children’s charity

AFTER their monthly tournament, the members of Sala Group Golf Classic met at the Oak Garden and Grill in Nueva Andalucia to present prizes and a sizeable donation to charity yesterday (Saturday).

Chairman of the Sala Group Ian Radford handed over a cheque for €4,100 to Rita Feti representing the Ciudad de los Niños in Malaga City which had been raised by the members of the Golf Society.

The Malaga establishment which is part of a larger organisation also present in Granada, La Linea de la Concepcion and Sevilla was founded in 1950 by los Hermanos Obreros de María, a group of Catholic priests with the aim of assisting underprivileged children.

It is not an orphanage but looks after the well-being of children and teenagers from families who are experiencing difficulties, helping to educate them, to train them for work and to help them obtain jobs once they leave school.

Many of the children who come from immigrant families of all types are able to attend thanks to daily buses that are laid on by the centre and although it is run with assistance from the Junta de Andalucia, the Ciudad de los Niños also relies on generous donations such as that given by the Sala Golfers.

Since the Sala Group first opened on the Costa del Sol in 2008, it has been heavily committed to raising funds for different charities and to date has given almost €150,000 to a wide range of local causes.
