What a day was had not only we were celebrating Chris and Margaret Hoare’s 50th wedding anniversary but celebrating a great day’s golf with bottles galore and some tremendous score with over 80 percent scoring over 30 points with the best score of the day coming from a guest Michael Grant “now a member” of 42 points.
Having been at Bonalba last week as well this must have helped with the scores and the course improving but some very slick greens to contend with.

Strong winds and tricky greens was the order of the day for the 18 golfers who took on the course and the elements.

A Medal round at Bonalba drew a larger than expected field for this early in the New Year, but it was another beautiful day weather wise a little chilly at the start but warmed up later.

The first game of the year was at La Sella and at eight o’clock in the morning it was very cold, the course was frosty and in some places quite wet, but being the hardy souls that the Warblers are they just wrapped up and got on with it, two of our number were sporting shorts, not sure if that is brave or stupid, but it paid off for them by the time we had finished.Read More
The annual Turkey Trot took place at our usual venue, Oliva Nova, this week and the Warblers, complete with Christmas hats but limited to three clubs and a putter took on the course which was in superb condition. Following the golf we all retreated to the BB Grill, alias the “Chicken Shack” for a Christmas get together and some tasty chicken.Read More
A great turn out for the Paul Kelleway Plate, played this year at Alicante as last week the game at Oliva Nova was disrupted by the weather. The golf course was in superb condition considering the recent rain, it was well manicured and tidy, a pleasure to play on. We were joined by three prospective new members, Bill Diamond, Linda and Dennis Coe who were most welcome.Read More
An early start at La Sella, with a chill in the air on the first tee, but still some of the optimists were wearing shorts and they were proved to be right as it turned into a perfect day for golf which makes it all the more difficult to work out why the scores were so bad.Read More
Despite heavy overnight rain El Plantio was in a playable condition, there were some very wet patches off the fairways but in the main it was good. The competition this week was the Autumn Trophy generously sponsored by Steve Cliffe, with some excellent bottles of wine as prizes.Read More
