El Plantio Monthly Medal

A strong warm breeze coupled with fast greens made for difficult conditions for the six El Plantio 2 members competing for the February Monthly Medal on the par three course. Such was the speed of the greens that several three, four and five putts were recorded and the windy conditions played havoc with the scoring and a couple of double figure scores were returned.

Overcoming all the obstacles was Ray Housley, freshly returned from three weeks in the U.K., who, whilst also being affected by the conditions, still finished a clear nine shots ahead of the opposition.

Nearest the pins – Holes 2, Mike Davies. Hole 8, Ray Housley

Second place, Handicap 12 – Janice O’Brien – 66 shots..

First place, Handicap 10, Ray Housley – 57 shots.
