We gathered on a chilly morning waiting with baited breath for the coach to take us on our much anticipated day of wonderful golf:
And we waited
And we waited
I could hear and feel the voices
“Where’s the coach?”
“How long have we got?”
“Are you sure you’ve booked it?”
“I need a wee!”
Eventually the coach turned up about 25 mins late to a chorus of muted cheers and we climbed aboard not realising that all of us were about to participate on a Magical Mystery Tour arriving belatedly at Aguilón. The mutiny was soon nullified with coffee and bacon rolls, as well as a few brandies on arrival. Easily pleased us lot!
Score cards and buggy keys handed out and with the usual pre-game excitement we teed off in rather pleasant weather for the time of year. The format was a modified Team Pinehurst, Stableford; 2 to score on the front 9 and 3 to score on the back 9.
The course, as usual, was in super condition. The greens having been prepared a few days earlier for a major local tournament, were like lightning. If you finished on the green above the hole, it was almost impossible to finish within ‘gimme’ range
Overall winners 1st with 113 pts: H Pearson, I Robinson, F Harvey, D Pugh
Nearest the Pin
Hole 3 – No winner
Hole 8 – J Niblo – 16.2m
Hole 12 – C Jowett – 4.3m
Hole 17 – H Pearson
The battle was won and lost on the back nine, with all of the teams being within a few points of each other on the front. Well played everyone. We hope you all enjoyed yourselves and see you on the next thrilling match.
Next away day will be Lorca on Monday March 6th. Another team game but Stableford points.
