Hacienda Riquelme 15th November 2019
Hacienda Riquelme 15.11.19
The society outing to Riquelme was played in difficult conditions on a cool and blustery day, most found the course very tough with only a few players excelling. Due to the difficult weather conditions the turnout was lower than usual only 26 Players making the trip.
Captain on the day Gareth Davies was sweating back in the Alehouse until Steve Ward’s scorecard was handed in, it is suspected Steve headed back to the range rather than collect the wooden spoon but it is clear he found the conditions almost impossible to master.
The conditions were also reflected by the 2's pot, only 2 players managed a 2 so well done to Mark Clancy and Jack Butcher.
Nearest the pin prizes kindly donated by the Alehouse were taken by Steve Hitcham, Darrell Rose, Kevin Bird, Mark Clancy and Jack Butcher.
In the guest category 6 players took part, Mark Clancy took second place with 30pts off 19 but the Undoubted star on the day with a fantastic 42pts off a handicap of 4 was Jack Butcher - an amazing score applauded by everyone back at the Alehouse, Well done Jack.
In the Silver division the scoring was very tight, 3rd place went to John Fletcher with 30pts off 18, 2nd was Darrell Rose with 31pts off 15 with the winner Mike Greatorex on countback with 31pts off 14.
Gold division scores were not so tightly grouped, in 3rd was Joost Boelhouwer with 26pts off 6, in 2nd continuing her excellent form was Deborah Rose with 35pts off new handicap of 11. The winner just pipping Deb was Graham Temple scoring 36pts off 2.
