Forget Me Not Charity Golf Day
The inaugural Forget Me Not Charity Golf Day was played at Camposol Club de Golf on Saturday 30th March. Forget Me Not is one of the Captain’s chosen charities for this year and as it was a charity golf day the aim of the day was to have some fun and raise funds for this wonderful local charity with many local businesses and organisations stepping up to sponsor individual holes and provide raffle prizes. This fantastic support resulted in 1,500€ being raised on the day!

A fully loaded course with 88 players contested the competition on a well prepared course with the greens in excellent condition, although many players failed to take advantage with post match comments highlighting how many short putts were missed….if only! The format was a generous pairs Texas scramble with an allowance of 50% of total handicap. The overall winners were Adrian Turner and Dave Crosland with a net score of 58; 2nd were Hayley Barker and Derek Deegan with a net score of 59. 3rd on count back after 5 parings came in with a net score of 60 were Barry Wilkins and Dave Noakes with a back nine of 36.
