Due to El Plantio 9 hole course being closed for Hollow Tining, 20 members and guests arranged an ‘away day’ at the Escuela de Golf course in Elche on Tuesday, 6th June. 2 teams of 4 players and 4 teams of 3 commenced a shotgun start on the small but interesting course for a ‘Texas Scramble.
After Holes-in-One on the previous 2 consecutive weeks on the home course, Elche now yielded 2 in one round. Henry Mellor scoring his first ever ‘Ace’ on Hole 4, which also qualified nearest the pin, and Mike Williams on Hole 18. In total, 31 birdie 2’s and 2 ‘Aces’ were scored by the 6 teams over the 18 holes, which range from 40 metres to 94 metres in length.
Nearest the Pin, Hole 17 – Ian Henderson, Hole 4 – Henry Mellor. 3rd Place, Handicap 3.1 – David Swann, George Stanhope, Mike Williams 46.9 shots. 2nd Place, Handicap 2.53 – John Wilby, Penny Goujon, Keith Smith, Dave Waterson 45.47 shots. 1st Place, Handicap 2.6 – Graham Blakeway, Bryan Watson, Henry Mellor, 45.40 shots.
