Being lumbered with the task of organising this event for 15 attendees, some of whom were non-golfers, flying into Malaga from five different UK airports, was like herding cats. Fortunately, the task was made considerably easier utilising the experience and know-how of Stuart and his team at Golf4USpain. From the multiple airport transfers, the hotel (H10 Andalucía Plaza), our choice of golf courses and accompanying golf transfers, everything was extremely well organised and executed by Stuart and his team.
All the guys who attended commented on how efficiently everything happened as communicated and planned which made for a great trip, helped in no small part by the attention to detail you get from using an operator who is knowledgeable about the location and particularly the courses, which can be illustrated by the fact we ruled out a few course choices because Stuart was aware of either the course condition or course maintenance scheduled prior to our planned dates which would’ve meant the greens and / or fairways having not sufficiently recovered, for example.
Being able to neck a few cold ones after each round, dissect the day and award the prizes and wooden spoon and then just have to get yourself and your clubs to the car park for the transfer back to the hotel also capped off each round memorably.
We played Marbella Club Resort, Los Flamingos, Sotogrande and Finca Cortesin. All were a pleasure to play and enjoyed by all the guys whose handicaps ranged from 6 to 24. The greens at Sotogrande were something else, at least 11 on the stimpmeter and as true as you’ll find however the highest praise from our group was for Finca Cortesin, including from some of the guys who play Valderama every year and who rated it better all-round, particularly the warm welcome and hospitality afforded to us.
I’ve used other golf operators, both UK-based and on the Costa del Sol previously, however based on the excellent service we received, next year’s trips will unequivocally be organised using Golf4USpain.
Thanks again Stuart and please pass on our thanks to the rest of your team.
