  • San Javier Golf Society “Individual Stableford Qualifier” Xmas competition at Lo Romero Golf, on Monday 4th December:

A bitterly cold early morning start to our Xmas game, with only one brave (some would say foolish) person out of the 30 plus players wearing shorts: Steve Branston, although he had the last laugh when the temperatures got into the 20’s during the back 9!

This is one of the best courses in Murcia and always a tough test but we love playing here. Thanks to everyone who donated extra prizes (mince pies, wine and chocolates etc. 

The winners on the day were: Division 1: First was Paul Newman with 35 points, Second – Ian price on 34, Third – Frank Murphy also with 34.

Nearest the pins were won by Simon Speak, Clyde Sandry, Frank Murphy and Paul Matthews. The gross 2 (for 50 euros) was won by Ty Williams. Our next game is a team “Traffic Lights”  competition at La Serena, teeing off at 09:50am on Wednesday 20th December.

“Dusty Bin” team competition at La Serena Golf, on Wednesday 19th July:

Stiflingly hot, humid conditions, with the tees set well back (ready for a big competition at the weekend) made it a very tough day’s golf for most of the participants. The greens were also a little patchy and some of the bunkers were not in great condition unfortunately.

The winners were: Bob Gallard, Giovanni Butto and John Hillier, with 72 points. Runners up were: David Archer, Barry Beale and Jeff Belt, with 66 and third place went to: Less Whall, Mick Hardy and Chris Taylor, with 60 points.

Nearest the pins were won by Jeff Belt, David Archer and Dave Summers. The gross 2 (for 50 euros) was not won and will roll over to our next game. Our next competitive game is an individual stableford qualifier at La Serena, teeing off at 9:20am on Monday 7th August. Full details will be emailed to all members. Payday will be on Saturday 5th August, between 11am and 12 in the bar area at La Serena Golf Clubhouse, Los Alcázares.
