Nineteen teams of four golfers played in an exciting tournament on Sunday 8th July at Elea Estate Golf Course for the SMHC Claret Jug trophy, The event, the second for St Michael’s Hospice Charity, was a stableford format with two scores to count on each hole and teams came from all over the island to compete. It was particularly good to welcome two teams from Korenium in the north who came down for the day and another from Vikla at the eastern end of the island.
