The San Miguel Golf Society were a swinging success at Las Colinas for the Linda Rennie Memorial Trophy event. Did you swing by to support?

A REGULAR event in the SMGS calendar, the Linda Rennie Memorial Trophy took place last week, September 16, on what was the penultimate day of Captain Phil de Lacy’s reign.
The event, played later than normal due to results of the coronavirus, SMSG enjoyed a tremendous turnout with 46 players pitching up at the well-cared for course.
In fact, the course was in excellent condition which saw for a great competition.
Pins were placed very far apart with year with holes seven and ten, both the two shortest par threes, shortened even further than normal.
The results by category clearly indicated how the course was set up. Nine players in Gold (lowest handicappers) beat 30 points, three in Silver, and none in Bronze.
Andy McDonald took the Linda Rennie Trophy with an impressive 39 points playing off of eight. Only recently returned Russell Bailey got near with 37.
Nobody else managed to beat their handicap. Andy also took 2 nearest the pins, and the society’s oldest playing member Mike Fearnehough another.
It was nice to see Mike in the frame again.
Following the presentation of prizes, the AGM was held.
The day’s results were the following:
