Three rounds of golf were played at Atalaya Park Golf and Country Club on the new course, one round at the stunning Los Naranjos Golf Club and one round at the group’s favourite course, Los Aquerous Golf Club.

A closely-contested Stableford competition was played each day, with the final honour going to Martyn Gould with an aggregate of 135 points followed by Terry Hegarty with 132 points.

Meanwhile six juniors from Dereham Golf Club took part in the 22nd Norfolk Schools Championship which was hosted by Eaton with an excellent field of 57 players.

Dereham’s Lily Farrelly won the U14 Girls’ title with a net 70 off an 18 handicap.

Representing Northgate High School were Lily, her sister Maisie and Joe Crane. They took the runners-up place, losing out to a team from Easton College.
