San Miguel Golf So­ci­ety

Costa Blanca News (South Edition) - - Sports -

Ha­cienda del Alamo, March 7 Bright sun­shine and a stiff breeze greeted the 27 mem­bers and three guests who mo­seyed on down to Ha­cienda Del Alamo for a Bo­geys Medal game. The smaller than usual band of golf­ing broth­ers was prob­a­bly due to the course be­ing the se­cond long­est in Spain and the medal for­mat which many golfers dis­dain.

Scor­ing was a tad unim­pres­sive, best ex­em­pli­fied by Ivan Hanak’s 4 over par 76 steal­ing the show. While some mem­bers blamed the ex­traor­di­nar­ily firm fair­ways and the re­cently spiked greens for the high scor­ing, oth­ers chose to in­vent dif­fer­ent ex­cuses.

The day’s re­sults, by cat­e­gory and in re­verse or­der, were the fol­low­ing:

Bronze cat­e­gory: 3rd Chris Ham­blett (84 CB), 2nd Kyree Skarsmoen (80) and 1st Mike Inns (78)

Sil­ver cat­e­gory: 3rd Theo Boel­houwer (78 CB), 2nd Paul Kel­sall 77), and 1st Ivan Hanak (76)

Gold cat­e­gory: 3rd Bjorn Pet­ters­son (79), 2nd Steve Locke (78 CB), and 1st Dar­ren Han­cock (78)

The com­mit­tee’s cun­ning plan of cre­at­ing a greater spread of near­est the pin win­ners - by al­lo­cat­ing in­di­vid­ual holes to each cat­e­gory and one hole for all play­ers – went some­what awry due to “con­fu­sion in the ranks, sah!” Dar­ren Han­cock won in gold and Bjorn Pet­ters­son won the par 3 open all. Sadly, Bronze and sil­ver awards were ca­su­al­ties of the chaos.

Best guest was Trevor Wig­nall with 84.

Win­ner of the Aba­cus was Brian But­ler who last week was the win­ner of the bronze cat­e­gory. Had his strokes been cricket runs, his score would have had MCC mem­bers cheer­ing from the rafters.
