La Marina take on Roda Golf


THE La Marina Golf Society were blessed with beautiful weather on their first visit of the year to the difficult Roda course.

The Founders Trophy was presented to the society by previous member Barry Martin to celebrate the 10th anniversary.

Unfortunately Barry returned to the UK and was unable to attend the presentation.

Generally, the scores on the day were lower than the previous meeting at Altorreal, although Gerry Mccabe, despite a two shot handicap cut ,managed to win the silver award with a very creditable 36 points.

However, winner of the Founders Trophy and the gold award with a brilliant 38 points was Barry Thorogood, who played the tricky course very well indeed.

Nearest the pins went to Vic Smith, Iain Lyall, Barry Thorogood and Mike Green.

The 2’s pot was shared by John Thompson and Mike Green.

The next meeting of the La Marina Golf Society is at Las Colinas on June 8 with first tee at 10.00h.

The society have only managed to get 24 tee times and being a popular venue only reserve places are available at 60 euros.

Anyone who has registered but are unable to attend should let Alan know as soon as possible.

Their next social function is the Summer Dinner on June 22 with prices of 15 euros with a three-course meal and entertainment provided by the Diverse duo.

Please let Elspeth know any requirements as soon as possible at and she will advise you of the meal choices available.
