International Club of Estepona - Golf Society
Our golf society was originally formed in the late 90’s by Dan Cook.
In 2003 Les Jinks took over as captain and during the next very successful nine years, the club continued as a very popular activity for male and female members of all levels. Both permanent and non-permanent residents as well as their occasional visitors enjoy our friendly golf days.
In 2012 Les retired from the job and Alan Davis was ‘volunteered’ to take over. After the Autumn cup this year and five years excellent captaincy, he decided along with ‘others’, that I should volunteer! Fortunately, I am able to share this job with Jan Blind and Stephen McMurtry.
We play twice a week, Tuesday and Friday, at Casares Costa Golf Club where our members benefit from discounted green fees. The twice weekly competition is organised on a ‘Roll- Up’ basis and we play individual Stableford using full handicaps.
Tee off times are either 08-30 or 09-00 am depending on the time of the year. With a mixture of ladies and gents, the number can vary greatly from 4 to 20 rolling up. It’s all very friendly, light hearted and is open to all.
We traditionally have two major competitions a year: The Spring Cup and Autumn Cup which are held in April and October. Both are followed by a very popular presentation lunch for golfers, friends and other ice Club members with as many as 70 people eating and drinking.
A few years ago we introduced The Ice Club Order Of Merit competition. The trophy is awarded to the player recording the best 10 individual cards achieved at the Tuesday and Friday ‘Roll- Ups’ during the 12 months between each Spring Cup. In addition we also arrange ‘Away Days’, every 4 to 6 weeks, to other golf courses within the local area This provides a great opportunity to sample the golf at these other locations and usually at preferential rates. Once a year I organise a Golf Break for 2 or 3 nights with at least 3 rounds of golf at a golf resort. This has been in Spain so far, and within a two hour drive. Lots of golf, good food and wine and lots of laughs!
Keep your eye on the club magazine and web site for details of all activities.
