Winners 29.11.11

As usual we had a small but select attendance for our second visit of the month to La Galiana on 29 November.  As with our previous visit we had had a seriously wet weekend through and rain was again forecast for certainly for the early holes.  However you can imagine everyone’s joy at waking to a cloudless sky and bright sunshine apart from those of us who have dogs to walk before we leave!  As the temperature soared it was hard to believe that it was late November and that it had been so cold and wet for days earlier. Once again we had to play the course starting from the 10th tee to allow the front 9 to dry out.  The course was in superb condition save for one or two areas on the lower part of the course.  Incredibly the greens were as fast as they have been all year and this caused a few shocks to those who had not played La Galiana before or who had last putted there on a heavily dewed greens at the weekend.

The winning scores do not appear to be brilliant but having regard to the fact that we play without the benefit of the slope of 143 they are in fact quite respectable.

The winning score was 31pts by Juan Mansanet (H/cap15) who triumphed over Mick Tracey by virtue of his lower handicap.

The full results of the meeting were:-

1st       Juan Mansanet           (15)     31pts (on lower handicap)

2nd      Mick Tracey                (19)     31pts   

3rd       Ed Butler                    (18)     28pts (on lower handicap)

4th       Mick Newman             (24)     28pts

Nearest the pin winners were Miguel Perez, Mick Newman, and Juan Mansanet.

The balls in the water sweep was not won again and rolls over for a second time.

Our next meeting will be at La Galiana on Tuesday 13 December with a 10am start
