Our last meeting of the month saw 39 members and a couple of guests make the trek to Altoreal, a course that used to be quite a favourite on our regular circuit …… and it may well reclaim its previous popularity.
We were fortunate to be blessed with a gorgeous day which gave us wall-to-wall sunshine and only a light wind allowing both bronze and silver categories to each have their 1st and 2nd position players beating par, it was just the gold division that seemed to struggle a bit with a top score of 33. Congratulations (again!) must go to Keith for a magnificent 43 – which comes complete with a BIG trim !!
Results – Nearest the pins were Dave Blackburn (5) Alan McDonald (8) Norman Cahill (10) and Ivan Hanak (17).
Best front & back 9 but not in the prizes – Both with 19 points were Phil Birtwistle (front) and Tony Smale (back).
BRONZE – 5th Norman McBride (34c/b) 4th Paul Cobain (34c/b) 3rd Peter Cunniff (35) 2nd Norman Padmore (37) 1st Keith Stevenson (43).
SILVER – 5th Phil de Lacy (31c/b) 4th Hugh Reilly (31c/b) 3rd Alan McDonald (33) 2nd Colin Rust (37) 1st Norman Cahill (39).
GOLD – 5th Tony Sims (32c/b) 4th Barry Roehrig (32c/b) 3rd Robin Eastman (32c/b) 2nd John Osborne (32c/b) 1st John Aitchinson (33).
