Here we are at one of  the Society’s favourite courses.  With a 10.00 am tee-off 18 members set off from Quesada at 8.15 am giving everybody time on arrival for coffee and a chance to go on the range if they wished. 

The course is in the midst of some changes so it was not in its usual immaculate condition but it was still a great day.  The weather was chilly to start but got better as the day went on and there were some good scores for all the players. 

Once everyone had completed the course we headed back to The Club in Quesada where once again we were treated to a splendid buffet which everybody enjoyed and our thanks to the new owner Ian and his staff.   

The overall winner, Iain Ralph, fresh out from a very chilly England having played only three games in the last three months played very well in the glorious temperature of 17 degrees. Congratulations Iain.

Overall Winner: Iain Ralph – 37 points
