THIS week’s report from the San Javier Golf Society features the latest Individual Stableford Qualifier which took place on Monday at the Altorreal Golf Course.
It was a chilly, breezy but nevertheless bright start to an enjoyable day’s golf which attracted 28 members and guests and made the trip to Altorreal. The course wasn’t quite up to its normal impeccable condition and thus no-one managed to play below their handicap.
Winners on the day were:
Division 1: 1st – Steve Higgins (33 points), 2nd – Barry Beale (31), 3rd – Paul Newman (31) and 4th – Frank Murphy (30.
Division 2: 1st – Steph Brooke (32), 2nd – Steve Barlow (31), 3rd – Dave Farrington (28) and 4th – Shaun Devine (27).
Nearest the pins were won by Steve Higgins, Paul Newman, Les Whall and Ian Lawley, and the gross 2 (for €50) wasn’t won and so will carry over the next game.
That will be the annual Captain’s Charity Day and is in aid of HAH Mar Menor which is Paul Hamlin’s choice for this year. It take the form of a Medalford competition at La Serena and teeing off at 9.12am on Wednesday November 22. Full details will shortly be e-mailed to all members; and the payday will be on Saturday November 18 in the bar of the La Serena Clubhouse between 11am and 12noon.
