One of the finest jewels in the area’s golfing crown must be the lovely, but challenging, course at Las Colinas. A buzz of excitement always rustles through the attending ensemble whenever we visit the “hidden valley”.
It was a hot & sunny June day & with quite a few areas off limits for buggies, it was also an energy sapping experience for the 33 members and 5 guests.
Today was the final of the Roger Pearson Doubles Matchplay with Robin (I can chip in from anywhere) Eastman and Ken Flaherty thrashing Barry Roehrig and Kenny Reddington 5&4.
