The nicest month of the year in Almerimar starts this coming Tuesday.
Most of the summer holidaymakers have gone home so the town is a little quieter. So it is much easier to park in Mercadona and get around the town.
The weather is a little cooler than the middle of summer. There is normally little chance of rain in September so it is pretty much perfect weather. Apart from the odd very windy day we get all the year round.
The long stay Swedish golfers and hotel guests have still to arrive so it is easy to get on the golf course.
The only minor issue this year is the Master course is closed for the first week of September. To give the greens a chance to recover from the very hot summer. So we will have to play twice around the Classic a few times at the beginning of the month. Hopefully when we are back on the Master course the greens will have continued their path to recovery ready for the winter season.
Interestingly, Almerimar is not the only course in the area to have problems with their greens this summer. We played at Alborán yesterday and they had quite a few bare patches on a number of their greens. Like Almerimar, the grass is now slowly growing back in again so hopefully they will be good for the Onda Cero competition at Alborán on 20 September 2015.
