Ray Baptiste Trophy golf success


IN THE early part of last week 13 members of the El Plantio 2 Golf Society played for the Ray Baptiste Trophy.

The competition consisted of a Medalford, in which players deduct their Stableford total scored on the back nine holes from the net Medal score from the front nine holes.

The course was in ideal condition and played perfectly, whilst the weather conditions made for a keenly fought contest, with four people finishing on 9 shots.

The extremely unlucky person to finish in 4th position was Ray Housley, with 16 Stableford points on the back 9 holes.

Nearest the pins were: Hole 6, Mike Williams – Hole 9, Martin Rickman.
1st place in the Ray Baptiste Trophy went to John O’Brien, Handicap 6 – 9 shots (C/B 19), in 2nd place was Lawrence Wanty, Handicap 8 – 9 shots (C/B 18) and finishing in 3rd Place was Martin Rickman, Handicap 10 – 9 shots (C/B 17).

If anyone would like to join the El Plantio 2 Golf Society, they play at El Plantio Golf Club situated in Elche, Antigua at km3 on the Alicante-Elche A-79 road.

The golfers meet on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays, using both the Par 3 nine hole and the main 18 hole course, which means they are suitable for all abilities.

Membership rates are very competitive, so anyone interested in information on the El Plantio Golf Society , either to play as a guest or to join as a new member, contact Ian Henderson on 966 716 616 or 636 116 230.
