testimonial - John Summers (Witney Lakes GC)

John & Caroline Summers.

"The Spanish pairs at Barceló Montecastillo in 2024 was a superbly organised event. This was a return visit after last year and did not disappoint. The weather again was excellent, the goodies we received at the reception meeting, the refreshments offered before each round and the gala dinner were all great value.

We entered with another couple from our club, however, it is an excellent way to meet and enjoy the company of other couples. The 48 couples at the event were good fun and we had a great time as a group.

Montecastillo is a both fair and challenging golf course layout and the greens are in excellent condition. There are plenty of practice facilities, including driving range, practice greens and chipping areas.

The hotel, has a restaurant, spa, indoor & outdoor swimming pool and is on the site of the golf course, therefore you can walk straight from your room onto the course.

We are hoping to return next year and improve on our scores, thank you again to Michael, Liam and the team for an enjoyable and superbly organised event."
