EL RASO GOLF SOCIETY

On Friday 27 September the Society travelled to Las Ramblas for the monthly Stableford competiton.  It was the first time for the majority of us, to have played this interesting and demanding course.  We were pleasantly surprised with the excellent condition of the course considering the aftermath of the recent gota fria.

A challenging day which was reflected in the scores.  The final results were as follows:

Winners of N.T.Ps were Russ Todd (5) Arty Crammon (11) Barry Wilson (14).  Russ Todd won best front nine with 14 pts and best back nine went to Debbie Weedon 15 pts.  In third place Jeff Lynch 26 pts second was Pete Cleaver also with 26 c/b and the winner of the day with 27 pts Arty Crammon.

After the game we travelled back to the Olde 9th in Quesada for presentations and refreshments.  Once again, our thanks to Grant and the staff for our welcoming array of sandwiches and snacks.

On Friday 27 July we played our last game of the season at Vistabella.  Twenty-seven players enjoyed the excellent conditions of the course, although the restriction of buggies on most of the front nine proved frustrating especially in the blistering heat of the day.  However, saying that, there were some exceptional scores recorded.

The final results were as follows: Best guest Terry O´Connel with a score of 31 pts.  Par 3 holes nearest the pins were hole 2 Glen Roberts hole 7 Bev Fairhurst hole 11 Pete Gartside and hole 15 John Dodds.  Best front and back nines: Malcolm Foskett 20 pts and Carin van der Kruijs 18 pts c/b.  Third place went to Bob Shorley with 37 pts.
