After a short rain delay of about 30 minutes our week started with the ever popular ‘counter’ game. In today’s format we knew how many of the four players from each team were to score before the hole was played. With 106 points (and beating my team by 19!) were Alan Douglas, his grandson Connah Judson, Joyce McClusky and the ever youthful John Shervell. Surely worthy of a mention were Connah’s six birdies! Well done mate. Speaking of ‘Counting’, much to everyone’s dismay, the price of a pint in the clubhouse has been increased by 35 cents!

Because next week we’re playing stableford competitions on all three days, Wednesday saw us compete in another team game. This time it was the best two scores from four on each hole but with all to count on the par 5’s. Some familiar names in the winning team; with a total of 98 points, were Alan Douglas, Harry Howard, Brian Staines and John (Curtis) Collins. Special congratulations though go to Annemarie Weisheit (Picture Bellow)who scored only her second ever birdie since she started playing at Las Ramblas!

Friday was a 3-2-1 ‘Dusty Bin’ competition and cleaning up with a combined team score of 87 points (six points ahead of the runners up) were ‘The Chuckle Brothers’ Brian Staines and Curtis Collins, together with Jan Kruse and yours truly.

Finally, the next time you think the par 5’s at your course are a bit on the long side. The longest ‘hole’ in professional golf is the 7th at the Satsuki course, Japan; it’s 964 yards from tee to pin! Good luck with that.

Pues, hasta la semana que viene
