We celebrated our championship match last Saturday at La Serena.  I will keep the accounts brief as we had 9 tournaments to present on the day.  First of all, thanks are due to Philip Mountford and Terry Fitzgerald for organising the competition on the day. 

To La Serena, Jean, Paul, Karolina and Jose in the pro-shop many thanks for preparing the cards and collating the results.  Gloria and all the kitchen staff well done as always.  To Wayne and his team, the course was in ideal condition.  To James Hayes our captain for 2019 who entertained with his witty jibes.  Please be careful with his poor hand.  To all who stayed back for the presentation many thanks.  Keep up the good work.

Down to the results, golf prize winners’ week 1, Cat. I, Alan Perry, Robert Smith and Pat Coyne.  Cat. II, Kjell Mundheim, Jennifer McCadden and Karen Neal.  Week 2, Cat. I, Alan Ewing, Chris Daw and Harry Lee.  Cat. II Sally Hopkins, Kjell Mundheim and Holly Thomson.

Could we be aware of a number of issues that we might address in order to improve the experience for all in a tournament, firstly the issue of slow play.  Can players please keep up with the group in front of them. 

Do not wait until it is your turn to play to start your routine, putting on or taking off your glove, marking and cleaning your ball, selecting your club, measuring your distance for your shot etc. all of these can be done in advance and this will help the smooth flow of the game. 

We had four players disqualified on the day, three for not presenting their cards and one for no signature.  It is your responsibility to have your card signed and return it to the tournament director. 

We have a waiting list in operation at the moment for membership at La Serena, however membership of The Celts is always available.  If you would like information on joining our club or entering a team in any of the federation events why not send an e-mail to johnobrienalicante@gmail.com or call 615 466 398?
