On Monday 2nd September Los Amigos Golf Society, with 32 players, travelled to Altorreal for the September competition. For most of us, Altorreal is not too great a distance to travel, but during school term time, traffic delays can be expected in the vicinity of the course. It was rather cool in comparison with previous days and it did rain for a few minutes later in the day, but overall the weather was pretty good. Unfortunately, due to a problem, the greens had a fair amount of sand scattered over them, which in turn developed some rather interesting putting skills.
The format for the competition was an Individual Stableford which, despite the state of the greens, brought in some rather creditable scores for the mid-level handicappers.
1st – Neil Macfarlane 31 points.
2nd – Roger Olorenshaw 27 points
1st – Fred Harvey 27 points
2nd – Ray Stroud 26 points
Nearest the Pin winners:
Hole 5 – Arthur Anthoney at 4.57 metres
Hole 8 – No winner
Hole 10 – Neil MacFarlane 2.1 metres
Hole 17 – Dave Lynch 9.54 metres
As usual, our Presentation Evening was held in the restaurant of the Camposol Club de Golf and our thanks go to all the restaurant staff for the excellent supper meal. Additionally, it being the first Wednesday in the month, there was Disco music on the terrace which soon had residents and visitors up dancing. A little karaoke added a bit of spice to a very pleasant evening.
