The Celts Open Day, we celebrated our February monthly open last Saturday at La Serena.  It was a wonderful day with ideal weather conditions with a very pleasant 20 plus degrees. 

The golf course was in fantastic condition with fast well-manicured greens again we must thank Wayne and his team for their excellent efforts.  To the staff in the pro-shop thank you to Jean, Jose, Karolina and Paul for preparing the cards and returning the scores to Madrid.  They have it down to a fine art. 

To our competition committee ably led by Camillus Fitzpatrick, well done you are doing a sterling job, thank you Camillus, Philip Mountford and Terry Fitzgerald.  Thanks also to the bar and catering staff for their courteous manners.  Can I again remind players to please return your cards as soon as possible to the shop on the open days so that they can generate the results on the computer and return the scores to Madrid. 

If you fail to return your card you cannot have your handicap adjusted and it also delays the presentation of prizes.  We would like to thank all those who were present to collect their prizes.  Can I remind prize winners that we hold our monthly presentation of all prizes for the previous month at each of the Open Days, if you are not able to attend can you appoint a member to collect your prize on your behalf.
