At Vil­lai­tana Golf, Benidorm on Tues­day, June 28

On June 28, U3A Golf Mo­rairaTeu­lada played one of their reg­u­lar games on the full length course, Le­vante, part of Vil­lai­tana Golf at Benidorm.

Our group has played this course be­fore and it’s al­ways a good test of ac­cu­racy and length. There are many bunkers to be ne­go­ti­ated or not (as in my case) but gen­er­ally they are fair.

How­ever, there is ev­i­dence of some de­te­ri­o­ra­tion in qual­ity of sand and work is re­quired. I’m sure the man­age­ment will have this course in tip top con­di­tion be­fore the Se­niors Open later in the year.

The weather fore­cast was fine and sunny but about half way round the clouds rolled in and the tem­per­a­ture dropped. Un­be­liev­ably, this was then fol­lowed by heavy rain and for those with­out um­brel­las re­ceived a good soak­ing. The ma­jor­ity of play­ers were in bug­gies which helped to keep them dry. All our mem­bers fin­ished their round although one stopped play­ing dur­ing the storm.

We lost some peo­ple be­fore the day, due to ill­ness etc., so only 18 play­ers were there on the day. We played sin­gles sta­ble­ford, all scores net of hand­i­cap and there were some re­mark­ably di­verse scores. I think some mem­bers must have been play­ing a dif­fer­ent course to the one I was on. The scores on the day were: 1st with a score of 44 points: Paul Wester­man

2nd with a score of 41 points: Har­vey Bourne

3rd with a score of 38 points: Ian Pearce

Near­est the pins: win­ners were Paul Sankey and Ralph Tomes.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to all the win­ners.

This was our last game be­fore the sum­mer break. We re­turn on the Septem­ber 11 and the course will be Alenda

To play for the so­ci­ety you first need to be a mem­ber of the U3A Mo­raira/Teu­lada which meets on the first Mon­day of ev­ery month at the Salóns G.L, Avenida del Mediter­rá­neo 32, Teu­lada at 10.30 am, ex­cept Au­gust.

All new mem­bers wel­come what­ever your stan­dard of golf.
