It was a bit cold, slightly breezy and we had a few drops of rain this week. Also, as the Yachting/Golf 3 day competition was taking place the tees were much further back than normal. Plus the rough is unusually thick this year so you are punished if you miss the fairway. These factors combined to make it a hard day for scoring at Almerimar.
We had 30 players including 3 guest taking part and we were playing an X x Y + Z competition. Where you multiply together two stableford scores and add a third on each hole. In this format you can get some really good scores on a hole. Two teams scored 19 points on a single hole by team members having 4, 4 and 3 stableford points. As Lennart pointed out at the prize giving neither of these teams were the winners.
The winners were Alan Sh, Rosemary, Kristina and Doris (our imaginary player) with a score of 118 points.
Last place and chocolates went to Albert, Nina, Mick Cl and Ingegerd with a score of 73 points.
Nearest the pin on hole 17 was won by Mr President with a distance of 4340mm.
Thanks to Lennart for doing the prize giving and for collecting the money this week. Herbert has volunteered for the task next week.
The cards have been processed and checked on Golfshake. This week nobody played better than their handicap. Only Alan Sh, Peter E and Kristina broke the 30 point barrier this week.
