Sicilian Sizzler
September 29th - October 4th 2013

Extend your golfing Summer with a week of Sicilian sunshine in early October.  We are taking our Italian golf tournament to the tremendous Donnafugata resort on the south coast of this intriguing island that basks in the golden Mediterranean sunshine all year long.

Sicily is crammed full of exceptional sights so the week includes a full day off for sightseeing and of course we can extend your stay before or after the tournament to investigate the island further.

The competition is open to all Golf Club members with an official Handicap: winners will be decided by the highest aggregate, Betterball, Stableford score over the three days of the tournament.

First Prize: Magnum of Louis Jadot + £400 Holiday voucher
Second Prize: Magnum of Louis Jadot + £200 Holiday voucher
Third Prize: Magnum of Louis Jadot + £100 Holiday voucher
