33 members and guests from Alfie’s GS travelled to El Valle GC for the October meeting and to compete for the Memorial Cup. Our Memorial Cup was introduced a few years ago to remind us of members who have now past.
This year was more poignant as it fell on El Dia de Los Muertos, where the Spanish use Halloween to honour the dead and celebrate the continuity of life. It was also the day we handed over our annual donation to the Royal British legion for the Poppy Appeal, so a big thank you to everyone involved with Alfies GS.
The course was in excellent condition, as was the weather, so no excuses and congratulations to our winners.
