"Just to get here is the real prize. We've stayed in a fantastic resort with some absolutely great people and had a really good time. We've been on plenty of golf holidays with our closest friends, but we have never enjoyed ourselves as much as we have this week." Stuart Robinson – BetterBall Champions
