Los Nietos Golf Society held their first game of 2019 at Lo Romero and not a cloud in the sky!

A special mention should be made about the course and its excellent condition. As one of the best courses in the area it certainly lived up to its reputation and exceeded our expectations, from the hospitality received in the Clubhouse to the cooperation of the pro-shop, mobile refreshments and on course marshalls. It was a pleasure to visit and play one of the premier courses in Murcia.

The day was well supported by members and guests, with 36 players out in the field, but a particular mention goes to the lady members and guests, Carol, Skye, Paula & Caroline; for the first time in our history the ladies made up a very competitive 4 ball and from what we hear, had a great day.  We welcome our new members Caroline and Duncan Anderton, Paula and Ross Winwood, Jack Wilson and Paul Brimble. Welcome all!

Winner – Albert Thrupp (12) 41 Points

Runner-Up – Clive Williams (36) 37 Points

Albert ran away with the competition, returning a superb score of 41 points off a 12 handicap. On the day there was no living with him! Runner-Up Clive, also managed an excellent score of 37 points; a particular mention of his stunning front 9 score of 24 points, but although finding the back 9 more difficult he held on and closed his round finishing second to Albert
