A HOT, sunny day and a buzz of excitement was the order of day, when the San Miguel Golf Society visited one of the jewels in the Costa Blanca golf crown, Las Colinas, also known as the ‘hidden valley’, recently.
The hotter than normal June weather, coupled with a few areas off limits for buggies, made for an energy sapping experience for the 33 members and five guests.
The day included the final of the Roger Pearson Doubles Matchplay with Robin, ‘I can chip in from anywhere’ Eastman and Ken Flaherty thrashing Barry Roehrig and Kenny Reddington 5&4.
The five NTP’s went to Robin Eastman (5), Noel Bannon (7), Theo Boelhouwer (10), Ron Stenhouse (14) & Steve Belshaw (17).
Results for each category were:
Bronze category – 4th Phil Birtwistle (29 C/B), 3rd, Neal Sheldon (31), 2nd, Kyree Skarsmoen (33) & 1st Marge Birtwistle (36).
Silver winners were 4th, Phil deLacy (30), 3rd, Ken Flaherty (31), 2nd Steve Belshaw (33) & 1st Theo Boelhouwer (36).
