ROCKETS GOLF Society took a long trip down to Murcia for their June away day, but arriving to find the beautiful Altorreal course looking like a picture.
Unfortunately, only a few members made the trip, most of them put off by the length of journey or maybe the 38 degrees temperature forecast for the day.
However, they missed a wonderful course with exceptionally fast greens, returning to the excellent condition we remember this course was in years ago.
The Gold Category was won by Dom Downey with the ‘speechless’ Larry Lambe taking second place and Rodney Smith taking 3rd place.
In the Silver Category Geoff Wild came in first after a barren spell with Tom Richardson coming in Second Followed by Pete Daggatt in 3rd place.
Nearest the Pins:
Hole 5 Terry Naylor Hole 8 Larry Lambe Hole 10 Geoff Mantafield Hole 17 Nada
Longest Drive: Geoff Mantafield and Best Guest: John Healey
Afterwards the group took the long trek back to Bar Patricia where they were greeted with lovely ‘Sarnies’, supplied by Chris and the bar staff who looked after them admirably.
Rockets Golf Society’s next game is at Vistabella on Tuesday July 11 with First Tee time at 8.15am, so please be there by 8am with the correct money.
