The Celts Club de Golf finally got to swing back into action at La Serena and celebrate their captain’s day.

IN the bright sunshine, and with a stiff cool breeze keeping them cool, the Celts club marked the day dedicated to their captain Philip Mountford by taking part in their first major tournament on the new greens.
Head groundskeeper, Bruno, deserves a special round of applause, as the new greens, which are only a couple of months old, were a serious improvement on the older surfaces.
Covid-19 has stopped many clubs from playing this year so it has been nice to see some golf clubs swinging back into action recently.
The results on the day were as follows:

  • Tony Edwards (2)
