The Wisdom of Golf… at Lorca Golf Resort, Spain

IMG_1266

It was an early rise for another great golfing day… we drove down, along the Costa Calida Coastline, a good half hour away, to Lorca Golf Resort, Spain…  We had an early start time, making sure we were ahead of others golfers wanting to play their round before the sun gets too hot…  The weather is really warming up now… its around 30 degrees… although during the mornings and evenings a strong cool wind blows, sweeping up everything in its path that is not properly grounded…

Lorca golf course is quite new and barren land, on the outskirts of the old city of Lorca in the middle of nowhere.  It is quite a hilly course, surrounded by rough mountains with massive ravines zig zaging across it… where many of my balls found their new home… Unlike Desert Springs, the land is bland and colourless, I felt lucky to come across these lovely wild purple thistles… The land felt good though… natural, wild and alive…  I felt that whoever had developed this land was connected to it and was working from his hearts desire…

Today both Tom and I were buzzing with a renewed sense of excitement, we were walking outdoors in yet another wonderful natural landscape and had another chance to play our very best game of golf… We would see later by our final score, just how calm and empty our mind remains … only focusing on our individual game in this beautiful moment… Oh what a day…

We were both playing well… we were relaxed, not power hitting the ball, but loosely gripping the club and allowing the club to lift the ball into action… oh we had some lousy shots, but understood that the ball either wanted to visit the sea-side and play in the sand or hug a tree and that was ok… we felt free from the end result, the score, which quite ironically mostly allowed us have a good score…

Today’s interesting happening on the golf course was watching a tour of spanish cyclists cycling around the outskirts of the course, up and down the rough mountain terrain in a good tempo… the human machine driving tirelessly to get to the finish line with a feeling that he’d given it his all…

We were playing the last couple of holes before reaching the 19 for some nice refreshments… we felt invigorated, we had played the course in under 3 hours and our score was looking excellent…   So the day was still young… and we looked forward to diving in our pool and soaking up some more sun on this lovely Sun Day…

If you would like to come on a golfing holiday here on the Costa Calida, I would only be to happy to arrange it… we have beautiful accommodation on Mazarron Country Club, a short distance away from many good golf courses in the area…
