40 members and guests from Alfie’s GS travelled to Lo Romero GC for the Sponsors Trophy on 28th June. The turnout was fantastic as we had 24 members and 16 guests who are always welcome to play golf with us. We all turned up expecting blue skies and hot sunshine but we endured some unexpected showers but this did not affect the golf performances on the day.
The course was in magnificent condition and all players enjoyed the day where the overall scoring was very high with 6 players scoring 40 points or more. This event is to celebrate the continued support of our sponsors who provide prizes for the society throughout the year which is greatly appreciated, Alfies Bar, The Celtic Drop, The Street Restaurant and finally The Old Auld Dubliner. The presentation was held back at Alfies’s bar where a buffet was enjoyed by all the players provided by Rose and Jim at Alfies Bar. As we had so many playing with us on the day it was decided to add some additional prizes details of which are provided below
