It made a nice change to set out on a bright, warm, sunny morning. We had all become quite used to packing waterproofs after the spring that we have all endured, but no such precautions were needed for the Straight Down The Middle Golf Society’s May competition at Aguilon Golf. 30 players took part in a Stableford competition on a golf course that was in fantastic condition and everybody was very complimentary about it. There were the inevitable numerous lost balls in the ravines and lakes (well for me at least!), but that is a cheap price to pay for such a wonderful course!
Our thanks go to all of the staff at Aguilon for making it such an enjoyable day. Thanks and congratulations must also go to Gary Greenfield, whose birthday it was on the day. He supplied cakes for everyone and was sporting his newly shaven head which raised a great deal of money for charity. Afterwards we adjourned to Trevi Bar on Camposol for prize giving, where we were treated to the usual wonderful hospitality of the management.
