The Warblers travelled to El Plantio this week to a much improving course with work still continuing. Well done to the green staff for presenting beautiful surroundings and good greens. There were twenty members present and one guest Andy Taylor who was made to feel very welcome by us all and the Captain presented him with a coveted Orba Warbler ball.
We all thought it was just a routine stableford not knowing what was going to happen to one of our players Chris Williamson. He played one of those rounds we all dream of but get no were near it. He is now the new record holder of the most stableford points in the 21 year history of the Society with a mind boggling 49pts a Gross score of 1 under par 71. What an emotional day for Chris and the Society.
On Presentation Chris was given a Standing Ovation by everyone there in recognition of his achievement.
The winner of Division 1 obviously was Chris Williamson (Hcap 10.1) now 7.5 with 49pts great effort Chris, second with 36pts was David Knight (Hcap 8.5), third with 35 pts and winning on countback was Michael Morley (Hcap 9.1). The winner of Division two with a par breaking score of 39pts and just winning on countback was Peter Gibson (Hcap 22.6), Barbara Pollitt (Hcap 22.7) with also 39pts was second, coming in third with 35pts was Sheila Dindar (Hcap 22.5).
The winners of the two nearest the pins were Robin Wheatley on hole 9 and David Knight on hole 14. There was two two’s today David knight on hole 7 and Mike badain with an outrageous two on hole 3 a par four, holing a 150 yard Pitch !!!! great shot Mike. The football card winner was Jorgen Mortensen with Liverpool, Jorgen kindly donated his winnings to the Captains charity ” thank you Jorgen”.
