For our July competition on Monday, 5th July, 24 members of Los Amigos Golf Society travelled over to Roda. A much-reduced turn out than normal as many members are still confined to the UK for many reasons, one of which is COVID-19.
Prior to arrival at the golf club, it was recommended by one or two members to indulge in a Full English Breakfast at a small restaurant just two minutes from the golf course; an excellent recommendation and an excellent breakfast for just €4! Well-fortified, we continued to the golf course and looked forward to an enjoyable game of golf.
The course was in pristine condition which led one person into believing it was going to be a nice easy day out. A long-term member, was so confident of achieving total success that he forgot all about his injured finger. However, a sympathetic buggy partner with one of those fantastic distance measuring watches which breaks into fits of laughter when a golf shot goes astray, showed some pity by keeping his watch on mute!
Overall, a really good day out enjoyed by everybody in hot conditions.
With our Captain, Gordon Nielson presenting the prizes, here are the results:
1st place, with 38 points, Dave Lynch.
2nd place, with 32 points, Roger Olorenshaw.
3rd place, with 31 points, Sandy Bayne.
Nearest the Pin Winners:
Hole 2: Eddie Harrison at 11 metres 50 cms.
Hole 7: Arthur Anthoney at 4 metres 65 cms.
Hole 11: Harry Pearson at 21 metres.
Hole 13: Gary Greenfield at 3 metres 29 cms.
For the first time in what seems like an absolute age we were able to hold our Presentation Evening in the restaurant of Camposol Club de Golf. This was a well-supported event and our sincere thanks go to the restaurant staff. Our thanks also go to all members and their wives/partners for supporting this presentation evening.
(Please note that there will be no golf competition during August due to the heat.) Our next scheduled competition will be on Monday 6th September at Altorreal.
