Twenty seven members, including those playing for handicap and four guests ‘teed it up’ at La Finca in the Society’s first game of the year, an individual stableford competition.  Golfers like other people have hopes and expectations for the new year, some with  both hopes and expectations, some with more hope than expectations that the ‘golfing gods’ will be kinder to them this year. Those who won the main prizes for the day though were by and large those who did so for the majority of last year ! During the day the weather warmed up, although some strong breezes on a number of holes, proved to be quite challenging. We returned to the Lo Crispin Tavern after the game as we have always done and the day’s prizes were distributed.
