Well we have returned from another enjoyable Fiesta. The first week at Lagos saw the continuation of the very good weather from the Navy week. It was great to see our friends Angela and Neal Dangefield returning after a long break and play the lovely courses at Morgardo, Espiche and Palmares where good golf was played. It was good to have Keith Robson for our clinics and sad that he could only stay for one week.

The second session at Vilamoura again saw the return of Helen and David Oliver, and Tessa McKeag and Cathy Lorains and two new clients Jacky Jackson and Linda Roberts. We played Pinhall, Laguna, Victoria and the Old Course. The clinics were taken by Joaquim Catarino, a charming gentleman who was just so encouraging. He is an honourary member of the Portugese PGA and has taught many of the current professional. He also gave us all a lovely present of a brooch ball marker as a memento.

We just cannot believe that we have been away for so long, and are adjusting to the cold weather!

If any of you want to play at Bungay on Monday please let me know by tomorrow as I have to give numbers by then.

The break at Dalmahoy on 18, 19, 20 21 and 22 June playing the middle three days should be enjoyable. The cost is £434 pp twin room and £674 single room for 4 nights d.b.b. and three rounds of golf. If you would like to participate, please send me deposit of £30 a.s.a.p. Taxis are readily available from the airport a 30 minute journey to Hotel at a cost of £13 per taxi. I can arrange these when I know flight times etc. Also I will need to know dietary requirements and those who require buggies.
