On the 25th. May over 30 members and guests competed in an Individual Stableford Competition at Font Del Llop and the 2nd game of this year’s Eclectic at the course. Despite a stiff breeze at times, conditions were good which contributed towards the generally good scores achieved on the day.
Although not to everyone’s liking, in view of the number of ravines and expanses of water that have to be successfully negotiated when teeing off on a number of holes, Font Del Llop is a fair test of golf to both novice and experienced golfers alike.
After the game we returned, as usual, to the Lo Crispin Tavern, where welcomeTapas was eaten and the day’s prizes awarded.
1st. Place – Dean Astley 32 pts. off 18 (on count back)
2nd. Place – Mark Good 32 pts. off 21
3rd. Place – Andy Quinn 29 pts. off 12
1st. Place – Carl Rodel 32 pts. off 27
2nd. Place – Padraig O’Brien 31 pts. off 25
3rd. Place – Andrew Mattey 29 pts. off 33 (on count back)
N.T. P. on Par 3s – Hole 3 – Julie King, Hole 8 – Paraig O’Brien, Hole 12 – Barny Barningham, Hole 16 – Steve King
Carl Rodel and Julie King shared the 2s pot, which was a ‘rollover’
Finally, the Free Game Draw was won by Ray Brown.
Our next game, another Individual Stableford, is at La Finca on 8th. June.
