Valldigna Golf SocietyValldigna Golf Society15 November 2011 La Galiana We had a good turn-out at La Galiana on 15 November and fortunately the weather forecast, which has been a bit ‘hitty missy’ of late was absolutely correct. There had been a lot of rain over the weekend and as we drove to the course we feared the worst with a leaden sky and steady rain.  However as we ventured out onto the first tee the rain stopped and the sun decided it was time to get up.  Because the course had shipped a lot of water overnight we all played the course starting...Read More >>
Pego Golf Society – Oliva Nova – November 8thPego Golf Society – Oliva Nova – November 8th    A rather cool start to the day quickly gave way to very sunny and warm conditions, tempered a little by an often brisk breeze, the former making for very pleasant playing conditions and the latter accounting for our universally very average (and for some of us pathetic – in the 'contemptuous pity' sense) scores. Although the yellow tees were well forward today the general softness of the very damp fairways contributed to the course playing long, but on the plus side the greens were very holding. There were, once again, three prize categories and the winners were announced by our...Read More >>
LEVANTE GOLF SOCIETY  LEVANTE GOLF SOCIETY  LEVANTE GOLF SOCIETY     ANNE WINS ON ANNE-DICAP RULE   A total of 19 for 18 holes doesn’t sound much like a winning score. But when playing Strokesford (or Medalford) the number represents an impressive net one over par. And 19 was the winning score at Oliva Nova yesterday in a competition sponsored by Levante’s president Brian Norbury. The first nine holes were played as medal with players deducting half their handicap from the gross score.    The second nine was Stableford and, to calculate players’ final score, the Stableford points total was then deducted from the medal figure. Four players were...Read More >>
