T.M.G.S. @ Alicante Golf 3/3/20

Unusually for us to play on a Tuesday ! it seems that some of our members are becoming complacent when making their reservations. A certain Mr. Chris Bellman booked for this venue and then on Sunday called the Captain to tell him that we have the wrong date on the website!! Well he soon found out that the website was correct Tuesday 3-3-20 S*** was his reply that’s the day I fly to Spain. Moral of this is check and double check when making a reservation Chris. So that left us with just 27 players, it seems that the location puts members off , ok so it’s an hour in the car, but golf in Spain is a day out no matter where you play and most members are retired so what’s the problem, oh! Maybe it’s the wife!!!A warmish day and a bit of a stiff breeze made the round interesting and surprisingly the scores were good. Because the field had only 21 members it was only one category with 4 podium places. The N.T.P. ‘s seemed to prove difficult for our higher handicappers, with no one on the 3rd and the 12th Being taken by Alex Alm ( the 2 shortest par 3’s on the course). With 6 possible chances of a “2” one would have thought that the 2’s pot would have been won, alas not so the €21 will be rolled over to next week at Altorreal. Our best guest this week, Nick, who was/is a guest of member Nino Pucacco ( Italian from London !!) managed to return 30 points on his 1st visit to this course. Full results; N.T.P.’s hole 3 Nada, Hole 6 K. Aasebo, hole 8 Nada, Hole 12 A. Alm, Hole 15 C. Nilsson, Hole 17 J. Dean: as mention “Nick” was the best guest with his 30 points. In the members competition it took 35 points for F. Normann to take 4th Place, H. Steele 3rd with 37 points, 2nd place R. Hagfoss 38 points and K. Alm 38 points on lower handicap
