First Round of The Electic Cup – Keys Bar Trophy St. Andrews
29 members and guests from Alfie’s GS travelled to Vistabella GC for the second meeting of the year on February 22nd. It was the first round of the Eclectic Cup and the golfers played for The Keys Bar Trophy St. Andrews which was the first time this cup was played for. We had a later than normal start time at 12:20 but despite the delays all members of the society managed to make it back to the bar before it got dark.
The course was ok but the fairways could do with some water but the new 7 holes make the course a full 18 hole golf course. The presentation was held back at Alfies’s bar where a buffet was enjoyed by all the players, kindly donated by Alfie’s bar. We continued with the 2 categories “GOLD” & “SILVER” but the performance of the day was made by Gulli Kristjansson who played off a handicap of 5.
Our winner of the day in the silver division was Rita Potters with 37 stableford points alas Rita had to leave before the presentations were made.
Second went to Luke Branch with 36 stableford another solid performance from Luke to compliment his last performance at Villamartin..
The Winner of the gold division was Gulli Kristjansson who had a magnificent score of 40 points playing off a handicap of 5. Second place went to Ove Collin who also had 40 points playing off 19 but was pipped by Gulli on countback.
Best Guest went to Mac McClean with 32 stableford points.
