By Alex Russon / April 27, 2021

Stonehaven’s 3rd hole requires two key strengths; a strategic mentality and a good deal of patience. It’s a challenge of attitude as much as golfing ability. If you canvassed the four hundred […]

Costa Del Stoney offered up another helping of beautiful weather for SGC members to bask in this weekend. Perpetual sunshine isn’t something to which we’re necessarily accustomed, so when the sky’s blue we lap it up.

Church this week @Stoney

By Alex Russon / April 18, 2021

Once again we were able to meet at Stonehaven Baptist Church this Sunday, all masked up and everything but at least we’re rubbing shoulders again instead of dialling into services online from our front rooms.
