Second was Des Hamilton with 33 off 10.9 cut to 10.4.Third was Len Wood off 21.8 cut to 21.5.Nearest the pin in one was Dave Rogers and nearest in two was Dave Robertson. There was 6 players on 30 so the OOM was difficult to decide!

Another lively night at the Dragon, we had some terrace back so that was great thanks to trish and the staff as always. Next week is Miraflores, see you there.

Scoring was high today, with an early card coming in with 37 we thought we might have our first scratch player! It was not to be fortunate for him!!! The winner today with a fantastic 43 was Norman Liddel off 23.2 cut to 19.5. Second with what would normally be a winning score with a great knock of 39 was Eugene Kerr off 13.7 cut to 12.2. Third was Tim Hemming with 37 of 2.1 cut to 1.5, a great round off 2! Nearest the pin in one was Ray Critcher, nearest the pin in two was Donald Mackenzie.
A great evening back at the Dragon thanks to staff there, some great prizes from Denis, an extra prize was given out by Denis he awarded the most improved player to Denis Reagan. Denise gave a Denis a present for his birthday, some new boxers, I wonder how she new he needed them???

Three knock out games took place today with Jerry Halford beating Des Hamilton, David Laybourn beating Donald Mackenzie and Leon Dore Beating Denise Davis. Well done to all our winners today.
Unfortunately there was even more roadworks near The Red Dragon making parking virtually impossible! We held at the course, good for Mijas golf, but not so good for our pockets or Andy at the Dragon. Hopefully at least some of the work will be done for next week and we can go back to where we belong.
Next week is Lauro Golf.
