The first hole on El Plantio 9-Hole course carries a 17 and 18 Handicap and should, logically, be the easiest hole on the course.

However six players had 2 shots each and none were successful in landing on the green.Therefore, the nearest the pin prize was left unclaimed with the other one being claimed by eventual joker competition winner – Alistair Douglas, who, the previous week had achieved a Hole-in-One on the first hole.

Nearest the pins – Hole 9, Alistair Douglas.

Second place, Handicap 10, Graham Blakeway – 40 points

First place, Handicap 6 , Alistair Douglas – 42 points.

The highlight of El Plantio 2’s Monthly Medal was a hole-in-one executed by Gary Needham at the 8th hole – the 2nd hole-in-one at this hole in 2 weeks. Hole 8 is one of the shortest holes on the course, but statistics say that it is the one most bogied, being surrounded on three sides by deep and difficult bunkers.

Last month’s medal runner-up, Alistair Douglas was in prime position to go one better, but a triple bogie at his last hole, No 8 – left him having to settle for 2nd place behind the excellent John Wilby. Also excelling was Alan Janes with two superb shots for nearest the pin.

Nearest the pins – Hole 4 and 9, Alan Janes. 3rd Place, John Burke, Handicap 7.1 – 54.9 shots, 2nd Place, Alistair Douglas, Handicap 12.9 – 53.1 shots. 1st Place, John Wilby, Handicap 3.3 – 52.7 shots.
