Santana 25th October 2018
Today we played at Santana with the format being individual stableford and was kindly sponsored by Tim Hemming. It was also our "End of Month Competition" with the winner going forward to the "Champion of Champions" final in June. With the weather at last clear of rain with the sun shining and the course in its usual super condition it made for a great day out.
First with a score of 37 points playing off 11.5 cut to 10.2 and going forward to the "Champion of Champions" final was Dave Robertson. Second with a score of 35 points playing off 10.9 cut to 10.3 was John Allan. Third also with a score of 35 points but with a worse back nine playing off 7.9 cut to 7.3 was Ray Critcher. Our guest prize was won by Jane Meigh also with 35 points. Nearest the pin in one on hole 16 was Dave Robertson with Tom McKay nearest the pin in two on hole 14.
There was also a special prize for Ray Critcher who joined the elite club of going round in a score of less than his age, well done Ray and thanks to Tim for the great prizes.
Lauro 4th October 2018
For today's game at Lauro we played holes 10 to 27. It was for individual stableford and was sponsored by Ray Mays. Unfortunately Ray could not be with us so his prizes were awarded by Ray Critcher. Despite a few initial buggy problems it turned into a great day. The course was in superb condition. This was reflected in the scores for the top 4 but, for whatever reason, not the rest of us. However everyone said they enjoyed the course and the day. Our winner today with 35 points playing off 10.7 cut to 9.6 was Phil Dodd. Second also with a score of 35 but with a worse back nine playing off .7 cut to .1 was John Davis. Third with a score of 34 points playing off 11.9 cut to 11.6 was Gary Sparrow. Nearest th pin in one on hole 11 was Bob Sawyer with John Davis nearest the pin in two on hole 25. We also celebrated the belated 75th birthday of our leader Robyn, Although I have to say he doesn't look it.............. Our Thanks to Ray for presenting the prizes.
