A HOT, sunny day and a buzz of excitement was the order of day, when the San Miguel Golf Society visited one of the jewels in the Costa Blanca golf crown, Las Colinas, also known as the ‘hidden valley’, recently.

The five NTP’s went to Robin Eastman (5), Noel Bannon (7), Theo Boelhouwer (10), Ron Stenhouse (14) & Steve Belshaw (17).

Results for each category were:

Bronze category – 4th Phil Birtwistle (29 C/B), 3rd, Neal Sheldon (31), 2nd, Kyree Skarsmoen (33) & 1st Marge Birtwistle (36).
