THE Celts Club de Golf celebrated their 10th anniversary with captains Camillus Fitzpatrick and Denis McCormack at La Serena.

The weather was ideal for golf with a 25-degree temperature and a gentle breeze to keep the players cool. The course and the new greens were in excellent condition, particularly taking into account that La Serena has been operating with reduced staff numbers due to Covid.

The Celts’ competition committee Camillus, Terry, Alan and Philip who organised the 88 players did sterling work in a fantastic team effort.


The presentation dinner at Meson El Prado in San Miguel went like clockwork, even with the arrival of one or two unexpected guests.

Thanks to relaxed Covid restrictions, the Celts were delighted to welcome back Jackie who entertained 75 appreciative members and their guests with some of their favourite songs.

At the post-dinner presentation, the Camillus Fitzpatrick prize went to Colin Soones with 39 with the Denis McCormack prize going Bob Smith with a 69.

Linda came to Spain to live when she was 24, just over 52 years ago, and her husband is Spanish. She began writing for English-language local newspapers in the mid-1970s and hasn’t stopped since! She leads a Spanish life, which she believes is vital when conveying the news to English-speaking residents, and along the way she produced two editions of Expand Your Spanish, helping English-speakers to enlarge their knowledge of the language. She was excited to be in at the birth of the Euro Weekly News in 1999 and is still passionately writing for the paper 22 years later.
