02/2016  Our February outing  on the 25th was to the very popular course at AGUILON golf resort which turned out to be a very windy day indeed for the 32 players who had made the trip. The course itself was in very good  condition as usual which made up  for  the difficulties that the wind created.Despite the wind NEIL MCFARLANE took the overall winners prize with a points score of 33 with KEITH GREEN also with 33 points in second  place  only on countback and these scores also gave them first and second place in division one.

01/2016  Thursday December 10th was the day for the Old Guard to make their annual visit to La Serena golf resort and 22 members arrived looking forward to a pleasant days golf in the sunshine. Also this was not to before as the members gathered on the first tee, the clouds rolled in and the rain came down in a steady downpour. With the prospect of a thorough soaking the game was abandoned and another date in January was fixed and we retired to the bar to be joined by another like minded society who were equally as wet. 2016 will be a big year for Fuente Old Guard as it now ten years since the society was first formed and several sponsored events are to be arranged to commemorate that milestone in FOGGS history. There will also be new society shirts issued to mark the occasion and several sponsors have been found to help make 2016 a year to be remembered. Should anyone wish to join the old guard or just play as a guest please contact us by email.
