We had 32 players for our visit to the Nicklaus designed Saurines de la Torre course near Roldan and this is arguably the best maintained course that we have played this year. The tees, fairways and greens were immaculately prepared and the only negative is that the venue does not have any practice facilities or a proper Club House.
However there is now a bar open on the complex and all players adjourned there on completion of their rounds for the prize giving. We played a better ball pairs Stableford Competition and some very good scores were recorded with the winners on the day being:
1st: Geoff Branton and Sheila Aston with 45 points.
2nd : Tommy Clarke and Quentin Williams with 44 points.
3rd : Roy Hills and Lyn Hills with 43 points.
Nearest the Pin prizes were won by Kenny Greer (2), Tommy Clarke and Steve Powell but no 2’s were obtained on the day.
In the monthly Captain’s Challenge, John Edwards and Wayne Leivars trounced the Captain and the Secretary and John also had the satisfaction of winning the football card draw.
