Santa Marina at San
Vicente de la Barquera in Cantabria,

Hi, I'm Con Cluskey
better known as Lead Singer with The Bachelors.
Since 2005 I have organised the golf
competitions on Lorna's Parador holidays. We spent a week in May
in Galicia in North West Spain, staying in the Paradores at
Baiona and Santiago and played golf at Ria de Vigo, a
spectacular 18 hole course overlooking the city and bay of Vigo

Our golf competitions are sponsored by

Spain is famed equally for
its castles and its golf courses and with the Paradors network,
both can be combined.
Two of the contemporary Paradors have
fine golf courses in their grounds - the 27 hole course at El Saler is world-renowned and Malaga Golf is surrounded by one of
the first courses created in Andalusia, now boasting 27 holes.
Furnished with an excellent 19th hole and with your room just
off the fairway, you are guaranteed to be the first or last off

booking well in advance since both are popular.
