Another glorious Spring morning greeted the Orba Warblers upon arrival at El Bosque but not all was as tranquil as first perceived – a chaotic start loomed ahead. Holes 10 and 11 was under repair and out of play so we started on Hole 12 and had to play Holes 1 and 18 twice – which made for a somewhat confusing score. The decision was made that this would be a non qualifier game.
With that out of the way, the Warblers made the best of this week’s outing. Paddy Kenmore stole the limelight with a perfectly struck 8 iron from Hole 4 – resulting in none other than a HOLE IN ONE – super Paddy !! And with good conditions on the course, retuned scores were solid.
In Div. 1, Chris Williamson ( Hcap. 8.7 ) again proved he was the player of the day coming in with an impressive 42pts. – now playing off Hcap. 7.5 ( special handicap reduction ). In second was Michael Taylor ( Hcap.17.7 ) with 34pts. and bringing up 3rd. place was Malcom Monti ( Hcap.12.3 ) with 32pts..
In Division 2, 1st. place went to ‘ Steadfast ’ Sheila Dindar ( Hcap.26.4 ) with 36pts. with 2nd. going to ‘ Still Going Strong ’ Derek Gray ( Hcap.22.4 ) with 35pts. Hole in One Paddy Kenmore ( Hcap. 22.3 ) was in 3rd. with 34pts.
There were 2 2’s on Hole 12 – Jorgen Mortensen and Hole 4 – Chris Williamson. The NTP went to Steve Head on Hole 14. We had one guest Sean Clark, coming in with 32pts.
The Football card went to Allan Wilson with Swansea.
A big thank you goes to Sheila for manually calculating the score cards and to Paddy for money collection and organising the wine for us – to help him celebrate his success.
