Somerset Golf Union at Desert Springs Resort for their Annual Winter Pre-Season Training Camp.

Somerset County Union Junior Elite Squad Winter Training Camp at Desert Springs, March 19th – 26th 2006

Now we are back to the English Spring- windy and raining certainly no weather to play golf.

We must say how much we all enjoyed our visit to your resort, and when each and everyone of our group was asked would they come again next year if invited, they all replied without hesitation "yes please"!

Most asked us to arrange to stay on site next year rather than at the hotel in Mojacar, principally so that they spend more time using your terrific practice facilities. We agree that this would be the best arrangement and we shall talk to you later in the year to start the arrangements for this.

We all had a great time and this was due to the attention we received from you and your staff. Please thank them all, Maria, Sylvie, Dolores and Maria (No 2) you made our lives as organisers so simple that we too had time to enjoy our visit. Please also thank the Marshall’s, they were very
understanding and helpful. The catering staff treated us very kindly too and this we appreciated also.

With very kind regards from us all!
