WITH GLORIOUS weather accompanying the players, down the motorway they went to the newly opened course at Sierra Golf. The turnout was excellent in memory of the late Ivie Davies who was the organiser of the name change to the Rockets Golf Society.
Some excellent scores were posted on the day and the top players were:
Gold Category – 1st – Arfer Williams, with a 2 over par 74 and also the winner of the Ivie Davies Perpetual Trophy. 2nd – Roy O’Sullivan (77); 3rd – Paul Newman (77) but on count-back.
Silver Category – 1st – Paul Hopkins (75); 2nd – Paul Mutter (76); 3rd – Rocket Ron (83).
Longest drive on the day went to Rod Smith, and Nearest the Pins were Geoff Wild (Hole 3), Rod Smith (6 and 15) and Jed Dobson (12).
Everyone went back to Bar Patricia in Torreta II for the presentation and munchies, and big thanks goes to the members who made a donation to Cancer Relief of €150. The next game of the Society is Tuesday November 14 at Vistabella Golf with the first tee at 8.15am. Anyone who would like to play either as a guest when on holiday or would like to join this very friendly group, please call Ron on 678 849 142 or e-mail at email@example.com
