Costa Blanca News (South Edition) - - Sports -

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).
