Onto Vistabella for our next event which proved to be a tough test as the winds got up and caused difficult ‘society golf’ conditions!
No more so than for Ricardo Nash who unfortunately propped up the field with 16pts …..better luck next time at Villamartin.
The 2’s pot was a rollover from La Finca and was won this time by 3 players, Warren Harris, Barry Mitchell and SMGS Captain Big Tony Smale each taking home 61 euros.
The nearest the pins were sponsored by The Society this event which saw winners Russell Bailey, John Morrison, Tony Smale, Phil De Lacy and Barry Mitchell each ‘hitting the mark’….well done Chaps.
We had 8 guests which is great and in 3rd place with 32pts off handicap 9 was John Morrison, 2nd saw Michael Leonard with 33 off 11 and in 1st place with an astonishing performance playing off plus 4 was visiting ‘Pro’ James Freeman scoring 38pts and we look forward to James joining us again anytime soon.
Onto our Silver category in 3rd place scoring 33 pts off handicap 15 was a subdued Barry Mitchell, 2nd Mike Greatorex on countback with the same 33 off 14 but with the best score of the whole event and also winning the best Lady player by a country mile was our very own Liz Sully amassing a huge 41 pts off a handicap of 15 which is obviously going to be closely looked at by the handicap committee but even so a tremendous performance…well done Liz.
In Gold Kevin Bird came 3rd with 32 off 12, Phil De Lacy 2nd with 34 off 11 and winning with a creditable 34 pts off 10 was Gareth Davies.
Our next event will be at Villamartin 08.02.19 which is currently full but we are trying to obtain additional tee times so watch this space.
