There was an early start with 24 players arriving for coffee at La Torre Golf Resort. With the first tee off time of 9.30am and a nice breeze blowing, it promised to be a pleasant day. After the wind had dropped it got really hot and so were the scores, for a few players.
The game was a Singles Stableford and the course was looking good with the greens very fast and unpredictable. This course has more sand than fairway, as many of us found and a bucket and spade would have been more appropriate.
After four and a half hours, for most it was a great day and with the prize being the TJ Electricals Euronics Trophy up for grabs, Phil Linton emerged the winner with 38 points on countback from Harry Pearson. No doubt Phil will be chopped from his ‘not embarrassed’ 24 handicap. The presentation took place in the clubhouse.
With more than half of the players scoring 30 plus, just showed how many enjoyed their game. Amongst all the banter, was the chip in from Barry Martin which grew from 10 mtrs to 30 mtrs as the story was repeated.
Nearest The Pin winners:
Peter Roberts – 3.94 mt
Steve Horne – 14.84 mt
David Bullimore – 4.37 mt
Next competition is at Condado on 9th July, so be sure to put your name down.
