El Plantio2 Golf Medalford

An unfortunate last minute withdrawal left club Captain, Mike Davies, unable to stage the planned ‘Waltz’ competition, reverting to an individual ‘Medalford’.

Coming out on top was occasional player, Lyn Young, who overturned a three shot deficit on the Medal section to score a superb 21 Stableford points total to win by the narrowest of margins of 0.1 from serial winner, Henry Mellor. Coming a creditable third was ex-member, now returned to Holland, George van Hastert, who was paying his annual very enjoyable visit to us.

Nearest the pins – Hole 1 Lyn Young, Hole 5, Janice O’Brien.

Third Place, Handicap 13.7, George van Hastert – 10.1 shots

Second place, Handicap 8.2, Henry Mellor – 8.9 shots.

First place, Handicap 10.4, Lyn Young – 8.8 shots.

Nearest the pins – Hole 1, Alistair Douglas and Hole 8, Ray Housley.

Second place, Handicap 7.1, Alistair Douglas – 50.9 shots.

El Plantio 2 Golf Society

Beautiful Spring weather greeted the eleven members (2 new ones) and two guests for El Plantio 2’s monthly medal. Unfortunately, the scores returned did not quite take advantage of the conditions as serial winner Alistair did not quite match his previous performances and second and third were also worse than other medal returns.

Nearest the pins – Hole 4 Ronny Campbell and Hole 6 Jason Mainwaring.

Third Place – Handicap 8.2, Henry Mellor – 59.8 points

Second place – Handicap 11.8, Ronny Campbell – 56.2 points.

First place – Handicap 7.8, Alistair Douglas – 55.2 points…

El Plantio 2 Golf Society Joker

A packed car park at 8 o’clock in the morning gave warning that a tournament was being staged on the 18 hole course, but it would not cause the 9 hole course any problems – would it?

Eight members had completed the first nine holes of a Joker Competition, when one of the course marshals rode up in his buggy and ordered us off the course and we paid-up members were ‘persona non grata.’

We were making strong representations to the reception when our helpful Spanish marshal, David arranged for us to complete the course after about half and hour’s delay.

It did not help two of our number, who were playing an individual competition and had reached hole number 12, when they were ejected and decided to pack in and go home, but not before they had both claimed nearest the pin prizes.

After the delay, the winner of our competition, was Danish member Benny who was fresh from a visit home.

Nearest the pins – Hole 6, Helen Beddows and Hole 9, Brian Coupe.

Second place – Handicap 10, Mike Davies – 35 points.

First place – Handicap.14 – 39 points

Nearest the pins: Hole 2, Barry Walthall and Hole 4, David Swann.
