Mick The Grip. A master craftsman with many years experience in club repair and re-gripping.

club repairs

  • Have used Costa Blanca Green Fees to arrange our annual trip for several years. Courses and accommodation are always booked efficiently which makes for a hassle fee trip. Mike is always on hand to offer advice on where to play (not just location but condition of courses) and stay. Recommendations have always been spot on. Look forward to Mike arranging next year's trip

    Doug

  • I use Mike to book our annual golf trip every year. His efficient and knowledgeable service is always first class. I particularly like his honest appraisal of suggested course condition etc and the fact queries are answered very quickly.

    Tony - Clayhall, Essex.

  • Whenever we are in the region we only look to CBG to book our tee times. The fast response to any queries and personal touch when arriving make it the only option for us.

    Nick

  • Thanks for all your help over the last few years Mike, I'd recommend your service to anyone! You made it so easy for us to book our tee times in advance at reasonable rates.

    Lema and Steve Townsend

  • I have used Costa Blanca green fees for several years and Mike has always sorted out the tee times we require very efficiently. His knowledge of the courses is immense and we have never been disappointed with his choices. Would recommend Costa Blanca to anybody looking for the best courses at the lowest prices.

    Simon Morris

  • We are a golf society from Bristol (Old Westers) and have only been set up a couple of years. We have recently had our second golf trip to Spain and again used CBGF to arrange the courses. The advice and organisation from Mike Probert was once again first class. We have all only been playing a couple of years so were very new to playing in Spain. We have not yet played a bad course and found fees very reasonable. All in all, a first class and very easy to use service.

    Kevin and Dona Pepa - Bristol

  • Mike has been booking our golf in Spain for over 10 years and it is always a pleasure to deal with him. We consider him now to be a good friend and we would have no hesitation in recommending him to any golfers wishing to play in this part of Spain.

    Kevin Smith

  • I just want to say, that Mike Probert, is absolutely brilliant at what he does. Have used Costa Blanca Green Fees for some years, as an individual client, or when booking up a few courses for a group of friends every year, and he is always most helpful, and knowledgeable. Have also used a few other sites on occasion, but you don't get that personal touch. Would recommend him without hesitation.

    Staf Hurlin

  • I have used the service provided by Costa Blanca Green fees for several years. It doesn't matter whether you're arranging a golf holiday for a large group of friends or just a one-off two ball, the service is both personal and competitive. Mike's knowledge of the game and perhaps more importantly for new visitors to Spain, his knowledge of golf courses in the region and their current condition; all makes for a great experience.

    Paul Cartwright

  • As the organiser of our annual Norwegian golf week on the Orihuela Costa in October, I have trusted Mike to book my mates and myself the best courses for the last four years. With Mikes knowledge of the area and the conditions of the different courses at all times it has been a great success.

    Rolf Sværen

  • I have used Mike to book my golf for the last year and I have had no trouble with any booking.Mike is very helpful and has told me of many courses to play.The service is the best I have tried and up to now I have booked 15 rounds and have had no problems at all and I will be booking many more rounds of golf with Mike.I would advise anyone to use this service to book future outings because you receive good advice from Mike who is very professional in what he does.

    Derek Miskimmin

  • Always a prompt and professional service and competitive prices, better than calling the course direct in my experience. Mike’s course knowledge is also helpful, no need to go elsewhere for any of your golfing needs in Murcia.

    Harry

  • Just returned home from Murcia and would just like to offer a big thank you for the organisation of the golf at La finca and Lo Romero. All went well without a hitch and the whole process was hassle free. Also, thanks for the advice given along the way.

    Ivan Roberts

  • I needed to organise a 4 day golf tour in the North Costa Blanca for four golfers. Mike Probert of Costa Blanca Green Fees was very helpful in advising on suitable courses, particularly Fond del Loop which was excellent. I was concerned about transferring all the funds to an intermediary but he was very prompt in confirming payment and issuing the vouchers. One of the golfers needed to drop out, Mike was very efficient rearranging the bookings and in payment of a refund.

    Tony Budd

  • Olen kavereitteni kanssa ostanut satoja green feeta kymmenen vuoden aikana. Mike on huippu, sekä golfissa että pelien järjestelyissä. Aina ystävällinen ja kaikki sujuu todella hienosti. Jos haluat, voit kysellä Miken kautta minultakin lisää. Suomeksi.

    Juha Tuomela - Finland

  • This was the first time we have used Costa Blanca Green Fee Services. The organisation was second to none. From arriving at the airport to being dropped off, Mike set up the perfect 5 days of golf. As an organiser of the trip he made my job simple with cost effective solutions. Many thanks Mike.

Why and How

Due to the usually excellent weather conditions in this region of Spain with sunshine some 320 day of the year the golf courses are busy all year around and receive no respite, especially the greens which see a lot of traffic over a 12 month period with 4 ball tee times every 8 minutes from 8.00am to 5.30pm.

Having planned your golfing holiday with our friends there is nothing worse than arriving at a course which is in poor condition, especially the greens which constitute for many golfers an important factor over 18 holes of golf.

All local golf courses have planned maintenance schedules which in general terms are based at the start or end of high season periods and therefore concentrate on the last few weeks in May, the first few weeks in June and the last few weeks in August and the first few weeks in September.

Unfortunately the work undertaken causes a disruption to golf and produces a poor putting surface for a few weeks and although courses may reduce prices during these periods of work it is better to avoid these periods of time but just why do they have to do this work?

Method

The surface of a green, colour, density and speed is a combination of the maintenance of the surface but also, about the maintenance of the root-zone. A healthy grass starts from healthy roots. Soil compaction can be a severe problem resulting in restricted root growth, lack of water infiltration into the soil, loss of resilience, weed invasion, disease problems and decline in turf quality. Hollow Tining is used to prevent damage from an excessive soil compaction. It is also very important to provide the needed drainage, for water infiltration and aeration at the root-zone and is done during the warm season when temperatures favour rapid shoot growth and coverage of the turf openings. The use of sand on greens is essential because it helps to digest the organic matter, enhancing the aeration of the root-zone, speed on greens and better recovery from pitch marks. In order to minimize the disruption to golfers, hollow tinning is usually carried out in 2 consecutive journeys so that the 18 greens are aerated in the same week. The surface smoothness restoration process includes top dressing, drag matting and rolling and greens are normally puttable after 3 days with rolling putting surface within 10 days.

However in reality depending on a number of factors such as day and night time temperatures and watering it usually take greens 15 to 20 days to return to a perfect condition.

There you have it…so when you next question the parentage of the green keepers you will understand the reasons just a little more.

Many golf courses announce their maintenance schedule in the early months of the year and so to allow you to better plan your golfing holiday below is the schedule of maintenance works planned for the current year where they have been announced by the courses:
