SAN Miguel Golf Society were back at La Serena as the second golfing day of Mick Roscoe’s captaincy successfully swung into action.
The club experienced a great turnout, with 35 members and four guests making their way to a course that has not been played on for some time.
The 16 holes with water were not enough to deter many from achieving some excellent scoring, with two outstanding returns.
Steve Hart’s 42 points just pipped Alan MacDonald’s 41, the latter’s recent stay in the UK clearly having given him time to forget golf and simultaneously improve his game.
Unusually scoring across all three categories was very even, with none of the main prize winners doing worse than 36 points.
However, we still had a much contested Abacus.
Captain Mick Roscoe was sure he had landed the rather good bottle of Jumilla on offer, but was beaten on count-back by first-time Abacus winner, Anne Reilly.
The standout nearest the pin went to Neil Oliver who, on the stroke index one par three, missed a hole in one by no more than a foot.
The day’s winners were the following:
Bronze Category: 3rd Mike Kaylor (36 on CB), 2nd Neil Oliver (36 on CB), and 1st Alan MacDonald with an excellent 41 points.
Silver Category: 3rd Kyrre Skarsmoen (36 on CB), 2nd Roddy Duncan (36 on CB), and first, with the day’s best score, Steve Hart with a superb 42 points.
Gold Category: 3rd Keith Little (37 on CB), 2nd Tony Smale (37 on CB) and 1st Michael Lausch with 38 points.
Nearest the pins (sponsored by Mick Roscoe’s Property Shop): Hole 3 Neil Oliver, Hole 9 Yvonne Davies, Hole 15 Dave Rowe, Hole 17 Keith Little.
Abacus: Anne Reilly
Best Guest Winner: Mike Jerone
Thanks went to all La Serena staff for their contribution on an enjoyable day.
