SPA Golf Club scored an amazing sporting coup at the weekend when Barcelona FC coach and former midfield star Juanjo Carricondo accepted an invitation to play the 18-hole parkland course.

Golf enthusiast Juanjo had intended playing Royal Belfast but after a chance meeting with Spa's Head Professional Gary Wardlow last week changed his mind in favour of the Co Down Club and said he thoroughly enjoyed the experience which he hoped to repeat in the not too distant future.

Juanjo is part of a team which tours the world bringing the "Barcelona Experience" to schoolchildren through coaching.

The 37-year old former footballer was greeted at Spa by Club Captain John Brannigan who invited him to sign the visitors' book before he took to the fairways.

"I am looking forward very much to playing Spa," he told the Captain.

The tranquillity of Spa might be a far cry from the white heat atmosphere of the 99,000-seat Camp Nou stadium in the Spanish city but 17-handicapper Juanjo was in his element on what he regarded as "a beautiful course".

Also in his element was Gary's six-year old son Jaxon a mega-fan of Barcelona who not only got to meet one of his heroes but wore his "Barcelona Experience" top while walking the course with the two golfers.

Now a highly respected soccer coach Juanjo joined Barcelona in 1994 when he was 17 and spent four years on the playing staff.

According to Gary Wardlow his visitor gave an excellent account of himself as he tackled the charms and challenges of the Spa course and is "a very competent golfer".
