Fortunately the forecasted rain did not materialise, so 22 members and guests ‘teed it up’ in an Individual Stableford competition, our 3rd. of the year. Although it was cold, playing conditions were good. The course was largely in good condition, as were the greens. Following the game, as usual we returned to the Lo Crispin Tavern, where the helpful and friendly staff supplied us with welcome Tapas, and the day’s prizes were distributed.
In view of the comparatively small number of competitors on the day, it was decided that there would be no Divisional prizes. Instead only the four players with the highest scores would receive them. These were :
1st. Place – Andy Quinn 33 pts off 10 (on count back)
2nd. Place – Mike Ellson 33 pts off 25
3rd. Place – Alan Haslop 32 pts off 26 (on count back)
4th. Place – Steve Price 32 pts 22
N.T. P. on Par 3s
Hole 3 – Ray Brown
Hol 8 – Mike Ellson
Hole 16 – Andy Quinn
Hole 17 – Alan Haslop
Because nobody managed to achieve a 2, the ‘pot’ will be rolled over to the next game at Altorreal on 22nd. February. Finally, Mike Ellson’s day finished on a ‘high’, as he won the Free Game Draw.
