One of four Spanish venues for Stage 2 of European Tour Q School

Billy Sim gets only four Scots for
Hacienda del Alamo haggis night

Billy Sim, Scottish-born director of golf at the five-star Hacienda del Alamo Golf Resort near the city of Murcia in south-east Spain, is looking forward to hosting one of the European Tour Qualifying School's four Stage 2 72-hole eliminators from November 20 to 23. Billy is pictured above by Cal Carson Golf Agency.
As luck would have it, of the 23 Scots players still involved in the long, hard slog to achieve or, in some cases, maintain European Tour playing status, only four will be in action at the Hacienda del Alamo venue. They are: Tartan Tour pros Stephen Gray and Lee Harper, the former Scottish boys champion, rookie pro Paul O'Hara, pictured by Cal Carson golf Agency, who was first reserve to the GB&I Walker Cup team this year, and Edinburgh's Mark Hillson, quarter-finalist in this year's British amateur championship and still an amateur.
Turriff-born Sim has considerable golfing experience on the Iberian peninsula, having been director of golf at San Roque in Spain and Penina, Parque da Floresta and Salgados on Portugal's Algarve region over the past 12 to 15 years.
