At 7.30am on Monday 4th July, 28 players, including 2 new members and 2 guests, boarded the coach at Camposol bound for Lo Romero Golf near Pilar de la Horidada. The course looked to be in beautiful condition and after coffee the 7 groups teed off.
The format for the day was a Singles Stableford Competition with the usual prizes for Nearest the Pin on the Par 3’s. It was the first time the Society had played using the World Handicap System and players’ handicaps were adjusted using the slope index.
The day was hot and humid and several players made use of the mobile drinks buggy having used up all their own liquids. Several players took photos of the stunning views on the way round this beautiful course, including the island green on the 18th hole.
After an enjoyable game and a beer or two in the clubhouse, it was back on the coach to return to Camposol.
The higher handicap players seemed to do best on the day and the winner with 38 points was Dave Baxter. Vice-Captain Gary Greenfield was second with 37 points and third was Bob Rose with 36 points.
Nearest the Pin winners were:
Hole 5 Bob Rowe
Hole 7 Mick Drummond
Hole 12 Arthur Anthoney
The prizes were presented the following night by Captain Dave Lynch at our Presentation Evening at the Trevi Bar.
