What a fantastic end to our competitive year of 2018. We had our annual Christmas Hamper competition and Dinner Dance at La Serena, with over 80 participants. The day was perfect for playing golf and the format, a pairs Texas scramble has proven over the years to be the ideal format for the tournament.
With Camillus on babysitting duty, Philip and Terry had the event running like clock work as is their normal. Many thanks to the competitions committee for all the work, especially throughout the year. The course was in fantastic condition prepared to the nth degree. Well done Wayne and your team. Jean, Paul and Jose looked after us as usual and we really appreciate your professionalism.
Our presentation was in the clubhouse and the general manager was on hand to cater for our every need. We were treated to a sumptuous meal which was really appreciated by all those present.
Enhorabuena to all the backroom staff in the kitchen, the waiting staff and Bruno. The nights entertainment was provided by our very own Jackie Whyte, who had us all up dancing until the wee hours. It was our largest attendance for our Christmas dinner and the compliments were well received. Thanks to all those who participated and helped make the night so very special.
Our results on the day were as follows. NTP’s Karl DiMascio , George Thomas, Kjell Mundheim, Bob Smith and Gary Conroy. We had five hampers in total and the winning pairs were, in 5th John Walsh and Eddie Stapleton 68.2, 4th Kevin Fitzpatrick and Darren Holden 67.8, 3rd Alan and Rose Walker 67, 2nd Kjell Mundheim and George Thomas 66.6 and the winners with a fantastic 63 Bob Smith and Gary Conroy.
