Camposol Golf Association June 2017

CGA Sponsor Monthly Club Competition!!
The CGA sponsored the monthly Competition on 31st May. Full details next month.

Forget Me Not
On 24th April the CGA presented a cheque for 400€ to the charity Forget Me Not. This charity provides free respite care for people with dementia or long term illness to give a welcome break for their long term carers. Forget Me Not are in need of a lot more funding to enable them to continue with the good work they do.

This Golf Away Day on 5th May was a great success. It was a lovely day; not too hot or windy, but a pity about my golf for which there were no excuses. The course was in excellent condition, although some of the 36 CGA Members who participated found the greens tricky. There was great hilarity when one of our members Pete Coulstock came in after playing the 18th hole where, after finding his ball sitting on the edge of muddy pond, managed to hit it out on his second attempt, regardless of mud splattered over what were once pristine shirt and shorts.

On our return to Camposol, 42 people had an excellent meal at the Trevi Bar. All in all it was a super day, especially as there were no complaints – well none that I heard anyway.

CGA Summer Ball
This will be held on 16th June at the Miras Restaurant which has an excellent outside area that looks very pretty at night with the lanterns lit up on the round tables of 12. The menu sounds great. We have not used this venue for some time and it is hoped it will be the success our Summer Balls usually are. The price will be kept to 25€ pp. Transport if required will be 5€ pp. The coach picks up at various points on Camposol and Mazarrón Country Club. Entertainment will be provided by Brendan O'Dee.

Christmas Dinner Dance 2017
The CGA decided that this will again be held at Hotel Costa's Celebration Rooms on 8th December.
