We had a good turnout of 40 golfers for our outing to RODA. The course was in great condition buy the very fast greens proved very challenging and ruined a few scores. The star of the show this month was John Batterby who scored 39 points and knocked 0.9 off his handicap.
Back at Paddy’s we were again well looked after and as always a big thank you goes to Hazel, Rory and their staff, your generosity is much appreciated.

Two teams of 20 set off for Saurines de la Torre for the annual Chairman v Captain challenge match. Golfing conditions were ideal and the course in great condition. The match ended in a draw so Chairman Paul and Captain Rory were sent down the 19th to settle matters.
After much banter and heckling Rory managed to secure the win. It proved to be a very sociable event especially back at Paddy’s. Thank you again Hazel, Rory and staff for your hospitality.
