Our first event of the new 2019 year saw the annual Captain’s versus President’s teams going head to head on New Sierra golf course. For the majority of the 30 players it was their first visit to New Sierra Golf, which was in great condition and represented excellent value for money.
The teams were selected by the Captain, Wayne Stevenson, and President, Tony Hall, who then in secret set out their teams in order of play. This event is loosely based on the Ryder Cup with 11 singles, 1 fourball and 1 Texas scramble.
Both sets of players battled it out with most of the matches going to the 16th and beyond before being decided. We ended the day with the presentation being held at Alfies bar, La Ronda and the results showed up with yet another win to the Captain’s team who won the day 10.5 to 4.5. Our President, to his displeasure, presented the trophy to the winning team.
I would like to thank our sponsors Alfies Bar, The Avenue and The Celtic Drop also thanks to Kat and Liz at Alfies Bar for the post-match food.
Our next meet is at Las Colinas on the Thursday the 31st January.
Wayne Stevenson, Captain, 8 January 2019
