T.M.G.S. @ La Marquesa 9/5/18

A beautiful morning awaited us in the vale where La Marquesa is situated, sun shining, no wind and almost no one else on the golf course; we were in for a great day’s golf. As always we began from tees, 1 and 10, this certainly makes the day shorter with all competitors coming in quickly, a round of golf in Spain under 4 hours IS possible! More improvements on the course , the new tee on hole 8 is now in play, wow, what a difference it has made, it must be said that the greens were in the best condition since we began playing here on a regular basis 2 years ago. It’s so good that we now have monthly reservations until December 2019! A phone call that was received from the vice-captain before we began telling us that she might be a little late due to a “puncture” on her car and that her “boyfriend” was in the process of changing it. Well! It didn’t affect her game, winning the Bronze category with a massive 40 points; her boyfriend Roger, on the other hand obviously used up too much energy on the tyre change, he score was approximately half of her tally. Results; N.T.P.’s hole 5 P. Bradley, and hole 15 G. Sorby, no one hit the green on holes 11 & 17.  Again this week the 2’s pot was won, P. Bradley and A. Rickers both on hole 17. Best guest was M. Noble 28 points. Bronze cat: 3rd P. O’Dowd 28, 2nd S. Twentyman 32, 1st M. Myhrvold 40 points. Silver cat. 3rd O. Nygaard 32, 2nd G. Sorby 34, 1st A. Rickers. Gold cat. 3rd J. Dean 30, 2nd H. Steele 32, 1st V. Brown 35. You can catch up on our Societies activities by logging onto of
