IT'S A SKEWED WORLD
GOLF is definitely a rich man's game, at least here in Tenerife. People pay over E100 per round for the privilege of knocking a ball about some admittedly spectacular scenery, under perfect blue skies, on greens that use thousands of gallons of our precious water.
Abama Golf Resort in Guia de Isora has begun work on yet more accommodation - luxury apartments and villas of which 90% are already sold at a staggering 700,000 to 1,250,000 euros apiece.
No wonder it made front page news.
In smaller type is the sad news that a centre specialising in the treatment of Alzheimer's - the first in all of Spain and only opened two years ago - is to close due to lack of public funding.
It is indeed a skewed world.
