Los Amigos Golf Society Valle Del Este Report.
8am Monday 22ndMay saw 48 members of the Los Amigos GS travelling by coach to Valle Del Este golf resort for the annual Captain’s Day Competition. Upon arrival we went straight to the Sports Bar and enjoyed a full English breakfast.
The conditions, sunny and 23 degrees were virtually perfect for a good game of golf. The competition format was teams of four playing with a yellow ball. The player with the yellow ball scores double points on a specified hole then hands it to a team mate.
Unfortunately, some members had to walk due to insufficient buggies, but that did not deter any of us. Two players, the ‘Distributor’ and the ‘Controller’ scheduled to walk, struck lucky when offered a buggy. No brainer! However, an observer of this team would not be blamed for thinking these two players had swapped their professions. The ‘Distributor’ made a really good job of keeping his shots under control on the fairway and the ‘Controller’ managed to distribute his shots over the rest of the course!
Naturally, playing a round of golf creates a terrific thirst and without exception all members enjoyed a post-game round of sandwiches and some thirst-quenching nectar. Homeward bound, one member requested a much needed convenience stop; however, Cap’n Bob managed to avert the request. Reminiscent of Amy Winehouse the following was heard.
Geoff said, “I need a P Bob!”
But Bob said, “No, no, no!”
1st with 105 points – Mike Drummond, Geoff Ewins, Roy Braddow, Les Dryden.
2nd with 99 points – Bob Rowe, Mike Joseph, John Dawson, Joe Malone.
3rd with 97 points – Dennis Fisher, Dave Pugh, Pete Stocks, John Murphy.
