La Finca Golf Society
Weekending November 3 Monday and Tuesday the Society had away trip to Aguilon Golf near Aquilas of which 24 members attended. The first day’s weather was horrendous with gale force winds, which never seemed to be behind you hence the scoring was not too high with the best score of the day being 33 points by Shaun Locke and the winner on countback John McAdams.
Thankfully, Tuesday the wind had dropped but it had turned much colder and damper with good scores from Nick Shaw with 34 points and the winner Andrew Bathgate with 36 points. The overall winner was once again Shaun Locke with 63 points followed by Abe Numiejar and John McAdams on 60 points.
The team event total scores of 12 aside between the under 65,s against the over 65,s was won by the young ones by just 2 points.
