6/11/19 Altorreal Stableford Competition A cold crisp morning greeted 32 players at this interesting golf course. Interesting! Well it appears that it’s a little on the tricky side, only one player managed to score 36 points and its extremely rare that any member breaks par at this course, however it does seem to suite the lower handicappers. Some of the tees were way back on the white plates and the pins were in places that I’ve never seen them before; all in all it makes you think about every shot including the putts. The course it’s self was in great condition. It must be noted that we always receive a warm welcome from the staff. Results: - N.T.P.’s Hole 5 O. Rong, Hole 8 R. Keane, Hole 10 Captain John Eyre, Hole 17 Alex Alm. John Eyre managed to sink his putt on 10 to take home the €53 in the 2’s pot; he was the only one to make a “2”. Our best guest was E. Keane with 32 points. Silver category saw a battle between Alex Alm and his wife Karin, although Alex has a slightly lower handicap, Karin managed to push him into 3rd place with his 29 points as Karin’s 32 points took 2nd place, Alex commented later that he must let her win now and again!! Yes of course Alex!!! Graham “the bandit” Smith took the top spot with 35 pts. Gold category. An attack by the Vikings of Swede, Ove Cederberg and Sverre Sonesen was thwarted by Sandy hill, his 36 points not only gave him the top podium place but it was also the best score of the day, Ove managed 35 and Sverre 34 well done to all competitors. Our venue next week is at Alicante golf, it’s been a few years since we played there and the start list is already full with a few reserves let’s hope for a good day’s golf.
