U3A Golf Moraira has been in existence for over 8 years but formally became a Society in January 2016. We are a fun and social group of golfers whilst also enjoying some competitive games.
2016 saw a dramatic expansion of the Society from one Stableford and one Texas Scramble a month to 3 games a month, a Society Championship and involvement in local Costa Blanca league golf. Membership has risen to 142 on the books and a full computerised EGA Handicap System is integrated with the website.
In 2017 we had a total of 28 fixtures, 16 of which are at Oliva Nova, 5 at La Sella, 3 at Bonalba and 1 each at Ifach, Alicante, Font Del Lop and Alenda. Some of these courses are the best on the coast. We also decided to withdraw from the Winter and Summer league golf for the foreseeable future due to the high level of competitiveness which ran contrary to our policy of “Social Golf”. This is continually under review and should we have a sufficient number of members who want to stretch their competitive wings on an ongoing basis we will reapply to join the leagues.
We owe much to the early pioneers of U3A Golf such as Keith Yeulett, Rona Hurst, Geoff Hurst, John Rhodes and Robin Woods. Without them we would not have had the foundation on which to build. Our roots have not been left behind and our ethos of social, encouraging and friendly golf still take priority. We held our end of term barbecue and quiz before the summer break and our Christmas fun game and Gala Evening in December.
We plan to play 2 times a month during 2018 at a variety of high class courses across the area. Information is available on the website https://www.u3agolfmoraira.com/ , for members games can be booked in password protected area which members will be given access to when they have signed up. EGA approved software is used for handicap and competition management.
Something for everyone and so come and join us please. E mail us on firstname.lastname@example.org
