  1. I have been coming to the costa for numerous years playing golf i reckon about 30 plus courses
    having bought a property on Mijas Costa in 1982
    I consider whats required here is a proper Lawn bowling complex on one of these excellant golf courses to enhance their facilities for bowlers from all over the world.
    I visited the commonwealth games in Glasgow Scotland and took in a lot of games and i am sure if the proper were adapted here in the costa it would be not only a big financial success run business by bringing a abundance wealth to the area .
    Glasgow had players from all over the world and the ideal time is this time of the year after summer
    Yours in Sport
