Celts Golf Society at La Serena

Yesterday was Championship day for November at our home course of La Serena.  We had 82 players on the day another fantastic turnout  The weather for this time of the year was quite pleasant but the wind got up later on in the day and made the course that little bit more challenging. These days do not run themselves, there is a team of people who all work together to make the event such a success.

The competitions committee under the guidance of Camillus Fitzpatrick and ably assisted by Philip Mountford and Terry Fitzgerald.  Thank you and well done.  To the golf shop with Karolina, Jose and Paul looking after our every need.

To Vanessa, Marijose, Vanessa and Gloria in the bar and restaurant muchos gracias por todo.  A special mention must go to the course management team led by Wayne, the course of late has been in excellent condition especially the greens thank you all.

We had a number of spot prizes especially for those wearing their shirts at the presentation. Well done to all the winners and congratulations to so many who remained behind to honour those who won a prize.

Our next major event is our Christmas Hamper followed by our General Meeting and then our Dinner Dance in the clubhouse.  Make sure you notify Camillus who you are playing with on the day.
