Thanks for the blog Barney...!

The rest of you were lucky in getting out of Dodge City during the day Saturday. By the time I left in late afternoon my flight from Malaga was delayed two hours as the Spanish were slowly shutting their country down. Inbound planes were being turned around in mid-flight and air traffic control was unable to cope. Absolute chaos…! I was too late to make the last evening shuttle back to UK so stayed at an airport hotel overnight as the guest of KLM and went out first thing next morning. I made sure I didn’t leave any lights on as the last man to leave though…! 😊 All OK and safe and sound in Hull (couldn't return to Finland and we are teaching online for the rest of this semester), despite the golf courses being closed at the moment. I have no problem with the “house arrest” concept, i.e. stay at home except to go get food and no socialization. The virus is highly contagious and may be more fatal than previous ones likes SARS, which my sister in Canada worked through when she was still nursing. So, we all believe the only way to contain it is to stay away from people to stop its spread. I know libertarians don’t like that but it is short-term inconvenience for long-term health. I hope all of you are staying safe and I will see you folks when we next rendezvous for golf, hopefully at Buxton in July...!

A really enjoyable week

with a number of longstanding friends on the trip, and some new faces playing good golf and, enjoying the enchanting town of Tavira with its quality restaurants completing enjoyable days. As far as the Golf is concerned If we played 2 at Cima 2 at Ria plus one at either Benamor or Isla Canela that would be ideal for me . We did play Quinta do Vale which is a challenge, I suggest beyond most of us and , Its usually blowing a ' hulie'. Mike C

My first time and definitely not my last as I enjoyed it so much I am going to Portugal over the festive season. I was very wary going on my own, not a problem, everyone was very friendly and as we dine and play together we all became firm friends. I am just waiting for the weather to improve to put into practice what the patient David taught me and not forgetting the delightful Liz, who charmed us all with her stories.

Golfing in Mauritius was not too shabby to say the least. Excellent golf courses that was challenging and certainly kept me focused on the ball????. Loved how we had to get the boat to play at the Île aux Cerfs . Enjoyed the diversity and dynamics of meeting new people to make new friends. Barney and Jennie outstanding as usual and always are so accommodating. You guys are such good company!????????‍♀️???????? Everything about the hotel was superb. Excellent choice. Thank you all! I had a great time.

Thoroughly enjoyed my coaching week with David

. First time I have travelled with DS Holidays and certainly won’t be the last. Found the coaching element to be extremely beneficial with David conveying his experience and advice in a relatable way that was easy to understand and put into practice. Cannot recommend highly enough.

Just wanted to say a "big thank you"

to Barney and Jennie for a fantastic holiday. The Anahita was excellent and the food superb. We met some lovely new clients and caught up with old friends. Barney, as usual, made sure everything went very smoothly not an easy task as we all know, although made less onerous with Jennie there to assist. Roll on the next trip.

Wow, what a week

Great golf, great company. Sad to have to say goodbye to new friends. Highlight for me was the water park slides and rubber ring towed by a speedboat - awesome.

Many thanks to Barney and Jennie for being such wonderful hosts...! The courses were great (notwithstanding they all had their own idiosyncrasies), the weather typical Scottish summer sun and warm temperatures, the tours interesting and fun, and my fellow tourists great company...!
