Thursday 31st January 2019

30 members and 2 guests from Alfie’s GS travelled to Las Colinas GC for the opening match of the 2019 season and the first round of the Eclectic Cup. This is always a popular venue for our members and guests and although the course was in good condition, we felt that it didn’t meet the usual high standards that we have come to expect at Las Colinas. 

With gusting winds, non receptive greens and difficult pin positions this was always going to be a tough day for all golfers.

Our winner of the day in the gold division was Ian Ingledew with a great score of 35 stableford points.

Second place went to Steve Barlow with a score of 32 points.

The Winner of the silver division was Peter Golder with a score of 31 stableford points. Second place went to George Petty with 30 points.

Nearest the pin on the 5th– Sponsored by ‘The Street Restaurant’ went to Peter Golder.

Nearest the pin on the 14th – Sponsored by ‘The Celtic Drop‘ went to Shaun Staplehurst.

Nearest the pin in 2 shots on the 9th – sponsored by ’Alfies Bar’ went to George Petty.

The Blind pairs were won by Rachel Lee and Bob Young.

A prize donated by Gary Armstrong for the longest walk went to Steve McAllister.

Many thanks to our sponsors, also a big thank you to Cat and Liz at Alfies Bar for their continued support throughout the year and post-match food.  And finally thanks to all the members and guests for supporting Alfies Golf Society.

Our next outing is Vistabella on the 28th February 2019 so get your names down early.
