24 January 2012 La Galiana


We started the New Year with an almost tropical day at La Galiana on 24 January.  Most played in shirt sleeves and some were tempted to wear shorts but saw sense in the end.  We had a small but select turn out with numbers lower than normal due to some attractive membership offers now being available at other courses.  The course was in superb condition but the club have to be congratulated for continuing to work on the course to make good some continuing problem areas. The greens were again very fast and as always it pays dividends to place shots to the green below the hole.

Scoring was moderate but we all enjoyed the day.  Because of the small turn out ‘the committee’ took an executive decision on the way to the course to change the way the prizes were distributed and only two individual prizes were awarded.  The winning score was 33pts off a handicap of 18 by Mick Tracey with Runi second.  The team prize based on the best two scores of three at each hole was won by Mick Tracey, Ed Butler and guest Don Bunyan

The full results of the meeting were:-

1st       Mick Tracey                (18)     33pts

2nd      Runi                            (16)     31pts   

Team Mick Tracey, Ed Butler and Don Bunyan  64pts

Nearest the pin winners were Mick Tracey, Runi, and Mick Newman

Surprisingly no-one reached the green in two at the short par four 6th hole to claim that prize.

The ‘balls in the water’ sweep was not won and rolls over.  There was however an obvious attempt at spot fixing as the last team in had more lost balls than the rest combined but justice was done when they didn’t quite manage to get their numbers right!

Our next meeting will be at La Galiana on Tuesday 21 February 2012 with a 10am start
