    is always worth watching.

    We returned to the action at Carya Golf Club, located about 15 minutes from the hotel and having opened in 2008 this heathland course meanders through mature woods giving the impression of being much older. It truly is a wonderful course, we played here last year and the group thoroughly en-joyed the experience. However, it must be said that this year we were disappointed by the greens which were not great in comparison with the two Gloria courses.

    Having spoken to the manage-ment they explained that they the designers had decided to lay bent grass on the greens as opposed to Bermuda grass, which has been used on many of the other courses in the area, including the Gloria. Unfortu-nately the climate has not al-lowed the Bent grass to work effectively for a long period and they have now taken the deci-sion to replace all the greens with the Bermuda grass. The course will reopen at the end of 2011 and will be back to its best for next year.

    Despite the problems of the greens the scores were still impressive. Felicity Coates's 41 points was the highest, Dave Simpson finished with 38 and Caryn James Bailey continued her form from the first round with 37. Brian Haynes came in with 36.

    At the half way point Caryn on 71 was leading the field by one point from Felicity. Brian Haynes had moved into third

    The Gloria Golf Resort is one of the regular fixtures in the Greencard Tour calendar. We have looked at other resorts in the area but the Gloria ticks all the boxes in terms of the golf, accommodation and overall relaxed atmosphere.

    The introduction of day flights with Thomas Cook Airlines was also an added bonus enabling the majority of the group to arrive in the hotel by late after-noon.

    The golf programme whilst stay-ing at the Gloria includes two rounds on each of their courses and one round at Carya.

    The week began with the usual Am-Am on the Gloria Old course. It is as those who have ventured to these parts before know, a great test of golf with accuracy from the tee avoiding the fir trees absolutely key to achieving a good score.

    The event was won by the team led by Frank Bristow and includ-

    ing Linda Crossland and Jane Twigden with a score of 118. The runners up just one point short was Team Steve Coates with Sally Ward, Dave Simpson and Gail Hegarty.

    The following morning we re-turned to the Gloria Old for the first round of the competi-tion. The scoring around the Old Course has always proved tough and this year was no exception with 17 points being the most scored on the front nine by any player and 18 on the back. Caryn James Bailey took the early lead with a fine 34 points. Sally Ward and Steve Coates both came home with 33.

    The free day allowed people to play some more golf on one of the many surrounding champion-ship courses, visit the local town of Belek or simply enjoy the Glo-ria's wonderful swimming pools, gardens and private beach. In addition the entertainment of-fered by the hotel in the evenings

    position and Dave Simpson was in fourth place.

    The final two rounds were to be played on the Gloria New and whilst it is a little more open than the Old Course it still provides a great test of golf especially with the three closing holes all having water in play including the 17th par 3 island green. Frank Bristow headed the scores in the third round with 37. Dave Simpson continued his push for victory with another solid round of 36, leaving him six behind the leader. A score matched by Felicity which was enough to see her take the lead going into the final round from Caryn by just one shot.

    The scoring on the final day was very impressive and included John Ward with a long awaited return to

    form with 40 points, Jane Twigden with 39 and Anne Laming with 38. However, all the attention was on the final group as Dave, Felicity and Caryn battled it out for top spot. The early exchanges were making it very tight, however, by the turn Dave with 17 points was slip-ping a little too far back from the two ladies. The final 9 holes of the competition belonged to Felicity as finished strongly and a par on the difficult par 5 final hole, secured a great score of 40 and a total of 146 over the four rounds. Caryn's great effort earned her second place over-all and just four points behind the eventual winner. Jane's strong finish to the event ensured third place.

    Our congratulations to Felicity for securing her first Greencard Tour Event victory and her place at the finals later this year.
