   This week the Warblers travelled to Bonalba for a very well sponsored Bonalba Cup stableford. Studley Holdings being our main sponsor and ably backed up by Bonalba Golf a big thank you to both. We were supplied with an continental breakfast, wine cold drinks fruit and a tapas at halfway and then after golf on the terrace there were more tapas two Paella's, free wine and beer not to mention the fabulous prizes which were of very good quality. All for the price of €36 (Wow).

  There were twenty eight Warblers competing for the Prestigious Bonalba Cup today and with eight pin prizes and 1 - 7 places it was all to play for.
