Classic Green 4 on 4 Sept18

Classic Green 4 on 4 Sept 18

Yesterday I was playing 9 holes on the back 9 of the Master course. While playing I took the opportunity pop under the bridge and take a couple of pictures of the new green on Classic hole 4. You can see them above.

It is now only 2 1/2 weeks until the 9 holes on the Classic course will re-open. As mentioned here the course will switch to the winter layout (Red, Blue, White 9 holes) on 22 September 2018. On this day there will be a competition open to all people who buy green fees in bulk at Almerimar to celebrate the reopening of the 9 holes on the Classic. You do not have to be a member of the Spanish Golf Federation to take part in this competition.

Today I was offered the opportunity to try out putting on the new green on Classic hole 4. The green is much faster than the greens on the Master (1&2) course. However it is still somewhat bumpy. My guess is that the new greens will be flattened with a golf green ironing machine sometime in the next couple of weeks to make sure they are great to putt on.

Sadly, the competition on the 22 September 2018 clashes with an Andalucian Seniors Open competition at Playa Serena. So I guess not all of the locals will be able to play at Almerimar on 22 September. However I am sure we will all love the new greens when they are open for use.
