Xmas Competition - 12 December 2008
A fun time was had by all at the Almerimar Today Friday Golf Xmas Competition.
We had 24 golfers taking part in the competition and we played individual stableford in teams of 4. Each players scores were added together at the end of the round to get their overall team score.
As well as the winning team prizes there were also prizes for the best 3 individual scores as well as 2 nearest the pins. All the winners received some festive chocolates in addition to their trophies. The losing team also got the customary chocolates. To see the full results of the competition see the table in the Jul-Dec 08 drop down menu under Friday Golf.
Well done to all the winners. As we now have a trophy (Trofeo de Navidad, Almerimar) we will run an event annually in December.
It was great that everyone joined in with the spirit of xmas by dressing festively, so much so that we decided to add a small prize for the best festive outfit. Well done to Maureen for designing the winning outfit. We certainly had trouble recognising the person underneath it all!
As well as lots of santa hats, flashy earrings, tinsel and reindeer antlers, the dulcit tones of Alan could be heard ho, ho, ho-ing around the entire course!
The prize giving was held at the Nautilus restaurant in the evening where Paco, Paco and their staff made us very welcome and served up a super meal.
I must say how tasty the fish soup was for starters. It was definitely my favourite dish. The desserts were fantastic and beautifully presented.
We must say a big thank you to Bryn and Amanda, firstly for their contribution towards the cost of the prizes and also for donating the cost of their meals which we used to buy some bottles of cava which were served around the tables. We wish them a speedy recovery and hope that they are feeling better soon.
