Camposol Golf Association Men’s Wednesday Group
Away Day at Roda Golf Course
This was a great success, the course was in mint condition and everyone in buggies so there were no casualties due to the soaring heat. The presentation was then held accompanied by a great buffet. Many thanks to John Layland for all his hard work over the last 6 months organising this event.
Outright winners on the day were N. Morgan, D. Freer, T. Colvin and L. Colvin with 130 points.
NTP winners D. Freer hole 7, N. Morgan 13. Nearest in 2 D. Deegan, 12.
This is a summary of the expenses on the day. €280 towards the golf fees,
€224 for the buffet, €65 for prizes, €64 in prize money.
The money for this was raised through the football cards and €140 we had left over from last year.
