Edetania Golf Society
Your International Golf Society near Valencia City After a weekend of rain 27 players turned up at El Bosque even though the forecast was not brilliant. They all received their just awards as we had a fine day, with some fierce winds during the first two hours of play. The rain finally arrived, but only as the last group were teeing off at the 18th hole.
For the second month running one of our resident Americans went home with the winner’s prize. This time it was Steve Conley who returned to the club house with a total of 32 points. Runner up was David Robertson with 30 points, while Andy Mitchell was 3rd on count back from 4 other members, all on 29 points. Guest prize went to Grant Petty, the day’s top scorer with 35 points.
Nearest the pin prizes:
Hole 3 Mike Marshall, hole 4 Reg Ditchfield, hole 8 Arnie Hill, hole 12 David Robertson, hole 14 Marina Crijns, hole 18 Grant Petty
Best front 9 was won by Reg Ditchfield with 19 points while Mike Clarkson won the back 9 on count back with 17 points.
There were 116 ‘blobs’ or nil scores. No one was able to predict this number, so we have a roll over of 59 euros to our next competition in April.
Victories in the knock out competition went to David Robertson (v Steve Arnold) and Peter Nunn (v Arnie Hill).
