Canarian players at Golf Las Américas (father&son): Guillermo Moreno Fragoso y Guillermo Moreno Masiá

FATHER'S DAY · SUNDAY 16th OF JUNE

Golf Las Américas would like to encourage you to share 18 holes with your father or your son/daughter. If you are the daughter or son, we invite your father now to disconnect from his daily routine together with you. And if you are a Dad yourself, we invite your child to play full 18 holes with you. Starting from today until this coming Sunday, 16th of June 2019, you can book online 2GF 18 holes with the promotional code FATHER to play on any day this summer (until 30th of September) and you only have to pay for your green fee. Your father's or your kid's green fee, is on us!

Handicap & age
Our favourite sport differs from all the others through a great innovation: the handicap. This allows you to match the level of any other player and therefore means that a beginner can compete in the same course with a medium or advanced level golfer.
There is another point to note in golf. It is a sport that can be practiced at any age and having an advanced age does not imply any considerable disadvantage with respect to a younger opponent, as it has less specific physical conditions as is the case with most others. So to sum up: a father of about 40 years of age can play with his son of 16, but also with his own father close to 70, in a match made up of no less than 3 full generations.

Family-natured sport
These two points that we have highlighted: the equality generated by the handicap and the fact that there is no age limit to play, allows Golf to be an ideal activity to share with the whole family. Fathers, mothers, children, grandparents, nephews... All of them can play together and enjoy a day of golf without limits. This is without doubt one of the secrets of amateur golf. For this same reason it is not unknown that the majority of golf players will admit that they were initiated into their sport by the hand of their parent or a relative, when they started joining them on the course. Take note, for example, of any interview with a professional golfer from any circuit: be it PGA tour, European tour, LPGA tour or LET, or our Seve Ballesteros PGA Tour, once the interviewer inquires about the first steps into the world of pro golf they will often recognize that there was family involved.

For all of these reasons and many more: we wish to celebrate this family-natured sport of ours at Golf Las Américas with parents and daughters/sons on this special day, for which we propose a new online promotion. We would like to encourage you to share a Golf day with your father or your child.

Countries
In Europe, this Saturday the 16th of June, Father's Day is celebrated in the United Kingdom, Ireland, France, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Greece, Bulgaria and Malta. In the rest of the world it is also celebrated in countries such as the United States or ones with the Anglo-Saxon culture attached to them, such as Canada, India, South Africa, Bangladesh or Sri Lanka, but also in Latin American countries such as Argentina, Mexico, Venezuela, Ecuador or Cuba, among others.

2x1 promo code FATHER

We would like to see parents and sons/daughters of all ages this summer sharing 4 hours of game on our course, to later discuss the different challenges of each hole from our Clubhouse terrace, overlooking the 18th Green. You have from today until this Sunday to make your reservation, in order to play the day you want throughout this summer (remember to add the promotional code FATHER to get this 2x1). So that your father's or your child's GF gets invited by us.

* Exclusive online promotion. Only for the 18 holes rates until the 30th of September (packages excluded).

* On game day, father and child must show their ID to verify their relationship.

An amateur golfer playing at Golf Las Américas

Golf Las Américas would like to highlight the 116th edition of the Womens Amateur Championship staged by the R&A, the most important amateur golf tournament for women in Europe. The Royal County Down Golf Club (Newcastle, Northern Ireland) hosts the tournament until Saturday 15th of July. Along with the United States Women's Amateur Golf Championship, it is considered the highest honor in women's amateur golf.

The historic women's tournament returns this week to the United Kingdom after 6 years (the last tournaments were held in Germany, Ireland, Sweden, France and Denmark). For this reason Golf Las Américas have placed the Union Jack on the 18th green, in honor of one of the oldest women's golf tournament.

 

The former British Ladies Amateur Golf Championship was founded in 1893 by the Ladies Golf Union and was first played at Royal Lytham and St Annes with Lady Margaret Scott crowned the champion. The German Leonie Harm (University of Houston) is the current champion

5 Spaniards have won this tournament in all the history, and all of them during the first decade of the current century. The Andalusian Marta Prieto (2001), Belén Mozo (2006) and the 2012 LPGA Sybase Match Play champion Azahara Muñoz (2009); the Catalan Elisa Serramià (2003) and the winner of two LPGA tournaments and 13th Rolex Ranking Carlota Ciganda from Navarre (2007). This year the Canarian Eva Martínez Calavia participates with 16 other Spanish players.


The Womens Amateur Championship consists of five days. At the end of the second only the 64 best players of the 143 participants will find accommodation in the game table. At that point, direct eliminatory starts for the title.
The winner gains entry to the AIG Women’s British Open, US Women’s Open, The Evian Championship and Augusta National Women's Amateur Championship as well as lifting the historic trophy.

Together we can beat the air pollution

 

Golf Las Americas joins the celebration of the World Environment Day (WED). Every year there is a new main focus for WED. This year the focus is ‘Beat the air pollution’ (efforts to reduce air pollution).

We would like to join the celebration of other environmental awareness days in June: World Oceans Day (this Saturday), World Day to combat Desertification and Drought (next 17th of June) and World Tree Day (next 28th of June).

 

World Environment Day (also unofficially called Eco Day or Environment Day)  is an environmental awareness day, run by the United Nations. The aim of the Day is to raise awareness of the environment and specific environmental issues. WED was established in 1972 but first held in 1974, which shows that concern about the environment goes back several decades at least. 143 countries take part in WED, and the day focuses on environmental concerns ranging from pollution to global warming and sustainable food production to protection of wildlife.

GOLF LAS AMÉRICAS ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY

We are aware of our obligations to maintain and care for our environment.  The management of Golf Las Américas, conscious of the limitation to the natural resources and the environmental impact associated with the business activity, especially on Canary Islands, in 2004 considered it important for the introduction of 2 systems for its environmental management: The UNE-EN ISO 14.001 and the Biosphere Golf.

AREAS OF ENVIRONMENTAL MONITORING

Water consumption, energy consumption, consumption of paper, dangerous residuals, urban residuals, use of pesticides, environmental legislation, flora and fauna.
