The Los Nietos Golf Society September day out was at Fuente de Alamo; the course was in good condition, but some of the fairways were a little bereft of grass as a result of the summer heat. Hopefully they will recover quickly.
A longer course than some that we play, so suiting the longer hitters was reflected by the scores and winning individuals. As always there was a great welcome from the club house and the golf shop was really friendly. Another great turnout of players and we enjoyed some good weather.
There were some great performances on this rather long course with Pat Hurley h/c 19.5 winning with a magnificent score of 39 points and from what we understand, if he hadn’t 3 putted most of the greens he could well have added a good few more points! (Vic, our Handicap Secretary may take this into consideration!!)
Well done also to Trevor Beechey h/c 13 with a creditable 37 As Runner-Up.
Nearest the Pins were won by Iain Furniss h/c 13 on holes 5 and over the lake on 8. Captain Tim Bromage h/c 19 was Nearest the Pin on 12 and our Handicap Sec, Vic Beattie h/c 13 was nearest on Hole 15.
The Longest Drive on hole 11 was won by Runner-Up Trevor Beechey.
The presentation and evening meal was well supported on our return to Lismos in the village.
Our next outing will be at the North Course at La Manga resort on 2nd October. It is our Captain’s Day and so to make it an event worth remembering we have asked the Scorpions from La Serena to join us. We will be fielding over 50 players and there will be prizes on each hole for ladies and gentlemen and the format of the day will be a Shambles! (I hope not in every sense of the word!!)
We will return to Lismos for supper and on the following night we meet at Antonio’s for our Ladies’ Night Dinner and Dance.
