This week found us at Altorreal just the other side of Murcia. In the past this journey has proved a little tricky for some members but today every one of our 37 players arrived on time, raring to go. A drizzle of rain early in the round didn’t affect the general playing conditions as the course was in good condition. The greens were a little slow but very receptive.
The day warmed up nicely and the scoring was respectable rather than spectacular. Only John Osborne hit the magic 36 points which probably reflected the fact that the tees were well back.
We always give a prize for last place on the day and this is sponsored by Gordon Wilson and GE Engineering – well today he won his own prize. Not to be outdone Micky Roscoe from The Property Shop who sponsors our nearest the pins prizes took hole 17 and a sleeve of Srixon balls.
