On a glorious first day of June Montgo battled with its annual bogey competition sponsored by Alan Skinner. Unbeknown to most Alan is an accomplished painter and brought along some of his works as prizes. This approach to greater variety in our prizes is only to be encouraged and most of us really appreciate taking home something a little different if we are lucky enough to play well.
Congratulations yet again must go to the Oliva Nova team for the fantastic condition of the course following its recent maintenance. This has to be just about the best kept golf course in the Costa Blanca region.
Making the most of these excellent conditions, and in his first competition as a member of Montgo, Jim Haywood took top spot coming in with +3. Countback decided second and third places with Penny Barden beating Simon Fox with her better back nine, both came in with +2.
The three NTP prizes provided the Snelling household with another clutch of prizes as Susie hit to 6.36m on the 11th and Johnny to 5.87m with his second shot on the 18th. It would´ve been a clean sweep for them if Denise cooper hadn´t knocked Johnny off the card on the 3rd by getting just 40cm closer with 5.50m. Two twos were awarded this week to Neil Cuming and Elizabeth Grin.
Next week we have changed our match to the 3 clubs and a putter format sponsored by John Day. It was to be the new Presidents Cup but due to bridge repairs on the 7th we have moved this to the following week.
