Venue: La Marina Golf

Date: February 26th

It was a beautiful sunny day with a light breeze. The course was in great condition and the greens were perfect. There was good turnout with 21 players on the day. It was the first visit to this course for many players and the course director Kirk was very helpful. This course has recently been taken over by a French company called UGolf which, according to Kirk, assures the future of this spectacular course.

The scoring format was based on Stableford Full Handicap Points. At the recent AGM It was decided to have two groups for competitions in future:

Group A up to 25 handicap.

Jim and Paul Group B winners

Jim and Paul Group B winners

Group B for 26 handicap up to 36 handicap.

The winner of Group A was Paul Bartley with 31 points with Jim Niblo in second on 29 points. The winner Group B was Pete Smithson with 40 points with Wyn Griffiths in second with 35 points.

Nearest The Pin on hole 5 was won by Steve Carter and on hole 17 by Glen Nicholson.

After some liquid refreshment and a lovely lunch in the clubhouse the prize-giving commenced. Prizes were bottles of wine and golf balls.

This event was subsidised to the tune of 10€ for members due to the travel time to get to this course.

The next golf match may have been held at La Roda on March 18th unless the Coronavirus intervenes. We are always pleased to welcome guests so don’t hesitate to get your friends along to play.
