Pairs Bet­ter­ball com­pe­ti­tion played at Oliva Nova on Jan­uary 8. Firstly ladies and gen­tle­men, may I wish a very happy New Year to all the read­ers and also to all our mem­bers and guests.

To­day was the first day back, after a win­ter break for three weeks for the mem­bers and the Com­mit­tee, and we were de­lighted to have a field of 41 play­ers four of whom were guests for the day. The guests were:- Roy Jones and Jan Jones, Glen Mor­gan and Georgie Hunter. Our new Cap­tain for 2019, namely Bill Pike, wished every­body a good game to­day.

It was a beau­ti­ful day to play golf, with a slight breeze and the sun was shin­ing all day

We had lots of prizes to­day, and we started off with the Cap­tain’s first drive, which was wa­gered on, and with a dis­tance of 218 yards, the win­ner was Mal­colm Wise, who guessed only 8 yards of a dif­fer­ence at 210 yards. Well done to Bill, for hit­ting such a good drive un­der pres­sure, with every­body watch­ing on the 1st tee.

The course was in ex­cel­lent con­di­tion with fair­ways and greens get­ting back to their very best, and the scor­ing in the com­pe­ti­tion re­flected this. Re­mem­ber it is pairs bet­ter­ball.

1st place with 45 Points was Paul Trig­well and Ian Wif­fin

2nd place with 44 Points was John Evans and Si­mon Fox

3rd place with 42 Points was Shaun O’Gor­man and Jan Jones

4th place with 42 points was Stella Fox and David O’Con­nor

5th place with 42 Points was Gra­ham Bor­ley and Ian Robert­son

So, well done to every­body for some great scor­ing.

Near­est the pin in Hole 5 was John Guest with 1.7 me­tres and at hole 16 the clos­est was Stella Fox with 3.6 me­tres.

There were 2 two’s to­day, both by the fairer sex, and they were by Jean Tay­lor and Suzie Snelling, and balls in the wa­ter was cor­rectly guessed by Si­mon Fox with 111 balls

Next week, we are play­ing the Pego Cup Medal Com­pe­ti­tion, which is one of our ma­jor tro­phies, so should you want to join us at Pego, please con­tact Penny Bar­den at pe­go­hand­i­capsec, and we would love to see you.
