On Monday 20th March 2017 33 members of the Alpines society went on their annual away day to Knightsbrook Hotel and Golf Resort for the day with an overnight stay.
Through high winds, occasional showers and even a hailstone shower the intrepid golfers played on and completed the 18 holes.

After the golf the members of the Alpines assembled in the dining room for a well earned evening meal before the prize giving took place. Prior to the prize giving the club president Jim McClure hoped that everybody had enjoyed the day and before he steps down as club president in a couple of weeks wished the Alpines all the best and hoped that the away day would continue in the future.
The Alpines captain Bryan Walsh spoke prior to the prize giving wishing Jeff Collins (the only Englishman present) a speedy recovery after England’s defeat by Ireland in the 6 nations rugby.
The overall winner on the day with a great 37 points was Tom Moore.
