QUESADA GOLF SOCIETY AT ALICANTE WED 27TH FEBRUARY
By Contributor / 2013-02-28 18:50:16
Today we played at Alicante G.C. for this time of the year the course was in reasonable condition, although the greens were very tricky and most of our members found them difficult to gauge the speed from green to green.
Not a good day for scoring with the weather, high winds and rain made Alicante more difficult course than it normally is, the mens tees were only 10 metres in front of the white tees on most holes.
I must say that on arrival we were greeted with a hot cup of coffee and a tosted baguette which went down well by our members, as always with Alicante the buggies were ready and we got away at the right tee times.
Tooday was a special day as it was for one of our trophies, The Alex Starkey trophy, Alex was one of the founder members of the society who sadly passed away some years back and Alicante was his favourite course, so we play there every year for the trophy.
Winners on the day
Winner of the Alex Starkey Trophy with 26 point was Les Catt, 2nd was our only lady member playing Sue Smith with 25 points and 3rd on count back also with 25 points Tony White.
NTPs (gold section) hole 1 Les Catt , hole 12 Brian Smith,( silver
section) hole 5 Chris Neild and
hole 17 Sue Smith. The Roy Trophy was won by John King.
Thanks must go to David & Anita at the Q.C.C. for the hot & cold buffet laid on after our return, which is always welcome and goes down well with the our other refreshments.
Please note our next game is at El Valle on the 13 th March Tee off
1200 hrs, next members meeting
