Over the weekend of the 17th to the 19th October, the Malta Rotary Golf Fellowship entertained a group of Sicilian Rotarians, wives and friends at the Royal Malta Golf Club.

The Fellowship now boasts 18 members (14 from Rotary Club Malta, 3 from La Vallette and 1 from Gozo).  In addition, close family are eligible to play and that increases our numbers by a further 5 if everyone was available.  One of these "guests" is J.J. Micallef, Ulli Salomo's stepson, whose golf handicap is some 30 shots better than the average Rotarian!

On the Friday, a Fun Team event was narrowly won by Ulli Salomo, Marlyse Cremers and JJ, from Ian DeCesare, Fillipo Alessi and Phil Stevenson.

On Saturday, a pairs competition was once again won by JJ who carried Ulli superbly!  In close support were 2 Sicilians and the Frank Salt/Ian De Cesare combo.

Sunday was a singles event and 2 Sicilians both played well below their handicap to give them easy victories.

At the Sunday prize giving (at which President Alfred did the honours) all 18 golfers present managed to win a prize by some administrative sleight of hand by Phil Stevenson.

The overall winners of the competition, who won the Stanley Sullivan 100 year old golf club, were Ulli Salomo and JJ.  The runners up were John Miller and Phil Stevenson.

The next events for the Fellowship are at Donnafugata on November 29 th and at Verdura on 11th - 14th April.


Our thanks to Phil Stevenson and Ian de Cesare for all the good work in organising this ever growing event.
