Triumph in Taba Heights!

I have just returned from a well earned rest in the wonderful resort of Taba Heights. It was our third visit to the Resort and the Hyatt Regency Hotel. The weather was a glorious 30 degrees and the staff at the Hotel and the Golf Club took exceptional care of us as usual.

The week was rounded off perfectly as I managed to win the Taba Heights Golf Resort Weekly Golf Open Competition - wow how amazing is that ? I'm pretty proud I can tell you. Please take a look at the link below for the full write up (I feel like I've just won the US Open!!!).
