Sixteen members gathered on a fairly chilly morning, which later blossomed into a typical Spanish autumn, with sweaters etc. being jettisoned. Today’s competition, a Team Texas Scramble was the first competition under new Club Captains Mike Davies’ tenure and, despite being injured and not playing, he stayed around to supervise proceedings – good start Mike.

Serial winner, John Wilby – ably backed up by his three team mates scored 6 birdies and 2 bogies to shade a closely fought competition by one shot, with all four teams being covered by less than two shots.

Nearest the pins, Hole 4 – John Wilby , Hole 9 – David Swann.

Second Place, Gross 51 shots – Handicap 4.1, John O’Brien, Alistair Douglas, Brian Edwards, Bryan Watson – 46.9 shots.

First Place, Gross 50 shots – Handicap 4.1, John Wilby, Ken Green, Lyn Young, David Swann – 45.9 shots.
