Ma­rina Alta Golf

Costa Levante News - - LOCAL SPORTS -

First game of the new year. On Mon­day Jan­uary 7, 2019, Ma­rina Alta Golf So­ci­ety held their first game of the year at the Oliva Nova golf course. With the course closed over Xmas and New Year’s day (Mon­days be­ing the nor­mal so­ci­ety play­ing days) and with many mem­bers still away on their trav­els, a re­duced field took to the course on a bright and warm morn­ing. Did I say warm!

A slight de­lay with the first tee time was recorded due to frost on some of the greens, I’m sure some of our North­ern play­ers will find that a laugh.

I’m sure that for some mem­bers some thoughts were present that this game was go­ing to be the start of their new game of golf, a new year with mem­o­ries of er­rors and lost balls long for­got­ten.

And who says that pos­i­tive think­ing does not work. Step up to the plate Paul Fraser.

Paul walked away with first place with a very im­pres- sive 41 points play­ing of a 24 hand­i­cap. Paul said it was one of those days, ev­ery­thing went in.

In sec­ond place with 35 points was David Reid play­ing off a 15 hand­i­cap,

There were no NTP prizes to­day but we did have 2 x two’s.

On hole 11 Peter Gar­diner took the prize as did David Reid on hole 16.

But the star of the day was Paul Fraser who scored a hole in one on hole 16, I am in­formed this is his sec­ond hole in one and I hope the drinks were flow­ing when they ar­rived at the bar later. Well done Paul.

The Ma­rina Alta Golf so­ci­ety plays at Oliva Nova every Mon­day and is open to new mem­bers, for de­tails of play­ing as a guest or join­ing the so­ci­ety please con­tact De­nis McVeigh at mcveigh1 @hot­mail.com or tel 638 401 170 or Alan Tiss­ing­ton at alan­tiss­ing­[email protected] or call 656 831 893 A Europe-wide cy­cle route has left the Ma­rina Alta out al­to­gether – even though it has be­come a Mecca for the sport with in­ter­na­tional teams based there most of the year.

Cre­ated by the re­gional gov­ern­ment, the Eurov­elo 8 map links cy­cle routes across the three prov­inces of Va­len­cia, Ali­cante and Castel­lón with oth­ers on the con­ti­nent, cov­er­ing over 500 kilo­me­tres.

It con­nects the Greek cap­i­tal of Athens with the south­ern Span­ish city of Cádiz, run­ning along the coast of the Co­mu­nidad Va­len­ciana as far as Gan­dia (La Safor), be­fore turn­ing in­land
