Alexander Belt wins the Gecko Tour in Baviera Golf.

Belt chose the Costa del Sol to prepare for the next challenge in his career: playing the PGA Tour in China. The 31-year-old British golfer won with a final result over two rounds of 141 strokes (-1). He was the only golfer to better par, which shows how demanding Baviera Golf is.

The key factor in Belt’s victory at Baviera was his tee-to-green play. The English player’s game was very regular over the two days and he was able to deal with the pressure at the final holes. “I am very happy with this victory. It is not just my first Gecko but also my first tournament in 2017. I knew I came well prepared and I thought about nothing but winning, but it is never easy. I am really satisfied with the result”, he said.

Several days before the competition was held on December 10th, the registration list was already closed, obtaining an excellent response on the part of the players. Special days are coming and Christmas is about to be celebrated and it is our aim to participate with the Red Cross over these days in its campaign “no child without a toy”. The call to our players has received a wonderful response and minutes before the tournament was started the Pro-Shop was full of toys.

The competition was held under the category of two best balls medal play and each team was made up of one professional and three amateurs. The golf course was at its best, as we are used to, with fairways and greens in very good conditions. Despite the early morning being cloudy, the sun came out later which, together with the pleasant temperature, made it a perfect day to enjoy the golf.

The players were able to savour delicious cheeses and local products during their rounds to replenish energy, ease tiredness and enjoy the game.

Upon the conclusion of the tournament, the participants enjoyed a Gala Lunch in the rooms of the Restaurant Natural&Mente, which were specially decorated for the event. After lunch, the prize-giving ceremony was held.

Construcciones Vera strengthens its international position with the award of a new civil engineering project in Colombia.

Construcciones Vera was awarded a new civil engineering project in Colombia, with a budget of 18.6 million Euros. This last one brings the number of projects in Colombia to 19, converting this country into a nucleus of Grupo Vera’s international business.

In November Construcciones Vera was awarded a new construction project in Colombia. The work consists of the extension, straightening and paving of the Anorí-El limón road in the north-eastern subregion of the Department of Antioquía. The work involves 34 kilometres, to be carried out jointly with a local company over 22 months. This public construction work is especially interesting for the area as, after waiting over 200 years for this infrastructure, a large population centre will benefit directly from the improvement of this road that will decrease the time taken to go from Anorí to Medellín from four and a half hours to just two hours.

Construcciones Vera also forms part of the megaproject “Parques del Rio Medellín”, with a budget of 49.8 million Euros. Under the motto “Bring life back to the river and then the river to the city and its people”, this construction is the most ambitious urban challenge in the history of the city. Additionally, Construcciones Vera is also working on the El Viajano-San Marcos road, with a budget of 36.3 million Euros. This work consists of upgrading the road infrastructure in the Departments of Cordoba and Sucre.
