WITH THE end high season now is in sight, the golfers of the The Members Golf Society, took advantage of a much quieter Campoamor course to complete much faster rounds last week and subsequently played some much better golf.
Taking just a little over 4 hours to get around the course, more than 8 members posted rounds better than par.
A large field of 40 members and guests turned up at this venue for their usual 9am start and with the temperatures rising so were the expectations of good golf.
The 2’s pot from the previous week rolled over and now contained a very nice €60 and with 5 par 3’s dotted around the course at Campoamor it was obvious that someone would make at least one and so it proved, Henry Steele on hole 15 and Ove Cederberg on hole 4.
In the N.T.P. competition last week Pearl Sabine hole 4, Ole Rong hole 6, Ove Cederberg hole 10, no one on hole 15 and Joe Dean on hole 17.
The best visitor this week was M. O’Halloran with 37 pts. In the bronze category 3rd and 2nd places were decided on handicap with both R. Rea and G. Chapman on 35 pts. 1st place went to J. Hillier on 39 pts.
To achieve a podium place in the Silver category 37 pts. Were required from O. Rong, Fellow countryman K. Krog came in a point better to take 2nd place while the winner with 39 pts. was A. Rickers.
Gold division players also need to be better than par to get onto the winners photo, 3rd P. Bradley 38 pts. ( H’Cap 9) 2nd N. Spaniol 39 pts. (H’Cap 11) 1st O. Cederberg 40 pts. (H’Cap 13).Phot. Silver category winners.
