Played at Oliva Nova on Tuesday 23rd of October 2018
If this golf today had been played in Javea, it would have been washed out, but in Oliva Nova there was no rain during the night and early morning, and we had the best conditions possible for out golf tournament. The course is slowly coming back to its best, even though the fairways were very long with the new grass planted, but there are definite signs of improvement, so thank you Oliva Nova. We were delighted to have two guests today, and they were Kevin Newman and Michael Jones, and they were warmly welcomed by our Captain for 2018, namely Mr David Phillips
In the competition the winners were as follows:-
1st Place with 73 Points was Michael Connelly and Celia Cronin.
2nd Place with 73 Points was Malcolm Wise and Peter Cornes (beaten on count back)
3rd Place with 69 Points, was Andrew Harrison and Fiona Sankey
4th Place with 65 Points was Russ Peters and Paul Trigwell
Well played to all the winners, especially to Michael and Celia, with a great total today.
Nearest the pin at Hole No 5 with their second shot was Michel Grin with a super shot in, of 1.44 meters, and at Hole 16, the winner was Colin Foster at 2.55 meters.
