Club de Golf El Paraiso (Rojales) LV 39 @ Alicante Golf 4/3/16
Only one no show left us with the odd number of 23, but as the buggy is included in with the Green fee this didn’t create any problems. Our club is made up of Brits, Norwegians, Swedes, Germans, Dutch, Finns, Polish, Swiss and we even have a lady from Iceland, we are a truly international group. It was a late morning start so everyone had plenty of time to make the journey across the city and to find the course. Now that the courses are getting busier the small parking facility at Alicante Golf fills up quickly and it can be difficult to find adequate parking within easy reach of the club house. The course was in good condition and as always the greens proved to be on the tricky side. The weather was certainly better than on our last trip two weeks ago, were we visited the south course at La Manga. On that day no one was fortunate enough to make a “2” so €19 was carried over to today’s competition so that we were playing for a pot worth €60. You may know that Alicante golf has 6 par 3’s so it would be safe to assume that the pot would be won, in fact it wasn’t until our first group reached the 17th (par3) that Joe Dean managed to stop the ball just 3 feet from the hole and luckily made the putt. As the groups came in it was looking more and more likely that Joe was going to take the €60, but you should never take things for granted in this game as the penultimate group came in to cheers from the Dutch members because Martin Klok had also made a “2” on the same hole, the difference being that he chipped in from 25m away, well done Martin as we know it’s not how but how many! In the N.T.P.’s Competition, John Eyre was closest on Holes 3 and 6 on Hole 12 it Polish lady Isabel Daroszewski and hole 17 went to Joe Dean. Results for the Stableford Competition were; 4th place Ship’s Captain Ole Rong, 34 pts. On higher handicap, 3rd place Vernon Brown 34 pts. 2nd place Sverre Sonesen 35 pts. Higher handicap and the winner was Gerd Cromm also with 35 pts.
