El Valle – Thursday, 23 February 2017
32 members and guests from Alfie’s GS travelled to El VALLE GC (who had hosted a pro comp only days earlier) for the February meeting. The course was in very good condition, the greens were firm, very fast and true and the very blustery wind made scoring very hard and points were hard to come by. Scoring was obviously low and only 3 players managed to hit 30 points or more, so congrats to the trio.
Our winner of the day was Pavla Serakova, with 36 stableford points.
Second place went to Derek Fleet with 31 stableford points
Third place went to Steve Bicks with 30 points
Best Guest went to George Bond with 27 stableford points

A Special mention and thankyou to Sandy Hall and all the members and guests who organised and contributed towards last year’s captain’s charity appeal which was Melanoma skin cancer awareness and I was honoured to receive a cheque for 1.150 euro to forward on back in the U.K
