THE LOVELY, soon to be extended, Vistabella course, was the destination for the San Miguel Golf Society’s first June meeting.
Early cloud cover and even a slight chill in the morning wind greeted the 30 ageing members and 4 guests who attended the day and are particularly well versed in the latter.
As often happens, the stiff breeze soon shifted the clouds giving the sun a chance to warm everything up and by 11.00am normal June service was resumed weather wise.
However, Vistabella’s tight and tricky layout never allows the game of golf to run as smoothly as everyone would like.
‘Mister Consistency’, also known as Noel Bannon, was the one and only player who managed to beat par.
The results were:
Nearest the pins – Mike Maskell (4). Tony Smale (8) and Ken Frew (14).
Best Guest – Mike Maskell who very nearly cracked the magic “30 points”.
BRONZE – 4th Chris Hamblett (30 c/b). 3rd Keith Wraithmell (30 c/b). 2nd Keith Stevenson (33). 1st Kyree Skarsmoen (35).
SILVER – 4th Theo Boelhouwer (30 c/b). 3rd Gerald Bannon (30 c/b). 2nd Steve Grundy (33 c/b). 1st Brian Mulligan (33 c/b).
GOLD – 4th Robin Eastman (34 c/b). 3rd Barry Roehrig (34 c/b). 2nd Darren Hancock (35). 1st Noel Bannon (37).
The “Abacus” bottle of fine red wine was taken away by Derek Johnston.
Members of the San Miguel Golf Society thanked all the team at Vistabella for their help in making the day a success.
