ABOUT US ...
Club 25 has been in exisitence for over 15 years and is not tied to one course. We play Sunday and Fridays, on one of the four GNK courses (El Valle, Hacienda Riquelme, Condado de Alhama and La Torre) with members from many countries, including Sweden, Belgium, Denmark, France, Holland, Eire and the UK. Our members are a mix of Spanish residents and property owners visiting Spain as often as possible. We have a strong social side as well, with several weekend trips and away days held each year. The membership has extended currently to more than 100 and we have a committee to administer and organise the Society.
Currently, through to May 2021 the committee is as follows, Captain – Roy Baker, Secretary – Roy Baker, Treasurer – Mikee Mendham, Sunday Organiser – Pete Thompson / Jill Thompson, Friday Organiser – Brian Fortune.
The original co-founder in 2005, John Moore died after a long fight with cancer and his son Gary also died with a sudden heart attack. This gave birth to the Moore Memorial Day, held every July, it has been successfully staged at La Finca, Lo Romero & several other courses around the area, with over 100 people playing every year and enjoying the afternoon’s prize-giving and festivities. This continues to be an annual event and is well worth marking off in your calendar.
All games are scheduled and organised to ensure fun and a bit of semi-serious competition, Sundays being more formal and federated. Members must join the Spanish Golf Federation annually, the initial joining fee for Club 25 in 2020 is €35, then a €35 annual renewal fee every January. They are also expected to buy a current club shirt when supplied, subsidised by the Club.
We have been successfully entering teams into the Murcia Matchplay and Veja Baja League for several years. Winning the Murcia League three times out of the past six years and the Veja Baja League in 2017. Members can opt to make themselves available to play in any of these leagues.
