T.M.G.S. @ Altorreal 20/3/19

After a few no shows 27 players took to the course to play a Stableford competition. The weather didn’t look very promising with a strong wind and very dark skies however the golfing gods looked upon us kindly as not a spot of rain fell unlike the Torrevieja area that suffered down pours, sometimes it pays to travel that little extra distance! Again the golf course was presented in very good condition and good scores could have been anticipated until you factor in the chilling wind. Only Sverre Sonesen managed to play to his handicap and took and took the top podium position in the Gold category, the ever consistent Ole Rong took 2nd place with 31 points and to make it a full house of Norwegians Gunner Barman came 3rd with 30 points. The Silver category members didn’t score so well and it was down to Irishman Pat O’Dowd to take the top spot with just 29 points, in 2nd place was the Societies new treasurer Derek Sullivan 28 points L/H and 3rd was Swedish member Lars Jernberg 28 points. All N.T.P.’s were won this week, K. Winton. G. Barman. H. Steele. A. Rickers. There were €27 on offer for a “2” and that went to C. Nilsson. Note: Captain’s day 12/4/19 at La Marquesa, 2 day competition at Albacete 20-21/5/19 all info and reservations can be found at  or FB @tmgsgolf
