We struggled a bit with the weather in Almerimar on Friday 28 January 2011 when the competition was played. Prior to starting to play we agreed that if the weather turned really bad groups could decide to walk off the course and the score at that time would count. In the event we managed to get all matches to play to completion. For 2-3 holes the weather was dire. Pouring with rain and very windy. For the rest of the round there was occasional drizzle with a few bright spells.
In the end all of the golfers were very pleased to get into the clubhouse after the golf and pick up their gifts of commemorative bottles of wine.
This was the third year we have run this competition where teams from England and the Rest of Europe are fighting to win The Segoviano Trophy.
This year the English team managed to retain the trophy with a convincing 5 - 2 victory.
