Marina Alta Golf
Monday November 5 Oliva Nova was the venue for this week’s Monday’s game. In the last 2 days, leading up to the game the news that the weather was going to be wet and windy resulted in the field being reduced to just 10 hardy members. On the day, the weather turned out to be far from pleasant but the game did go on in over cast conditions but for the moment dry. The weather turned against the players on the back nine with strong wind and rain.
In first place with 38 points was Peter Gardiner playing off a 22 handicap.
In second place with 36 points was Denis McVeigh playing off a 19 handicap.
Third place was Danny Herron with 33 points playing off an 18 handicap.
Nearest the pin on the pars threes were,
Hole : 3 the winner was new member David Downes Hole :16 Peter Gardiner For a change there was 2X2’s recorded,
Peter Gardiner on hole 6 and Denis McVeigh on hole 16. Both were long chip in shots off the greens so well done.
It would seem that the wet and windy conditions was just what a certain Peter and Denis like playing in, picking up five of the prizes between them. I also understand that the coffee and brandy after the game was most welcome.
