- Corralejo Golf Society TUESDAY 4TH SEPTEMBER - Las Salinas Golf

Holding out especially for the society, Salinas golf club kept the back 9 open for our Stableford comp on Tuesday 4th September. It was more than playable, though they had scurried the latter holes of the back 9 in hope of regaining the fairways. Playing preferred lies, unusual for over here, we set out for another days’ golf on a fine “September Morn”, not a cue for a song from our resident Neil Diamond impersonator, Phil Richards, don’t want to get him started on that! But a beautiful day it was. 6 guests joined us for the day including one of my best mates from back home Gareth Kyte. We were joined in our 3 ball by the Elvis showman, Lynden Bartlam who “just can’t help believing” his “Blue Suede Golf Shoes” were going to be his “Good Luck Charm”. I’d better stop this or we’ll be here all day!

Lynden got off to a flying start whilst myself and Gareth were a little slower off the mark. We did catch up by the 9th a little and there was only a few points separating all three of us. Gareth fell by the wayside on the back 9 whilst I pulled back the drop shots I’d made on the front 9. After scoring 20 points on the back I finished level par for my handicap, 36 points, but hats off to my playing partner Lynden, who after scoring just 13 points on the front 9, pulled his round back to play for the first time ever to his handicap scoring a massive 23 points on the back 9 with 2 no score holes too! He also got a fantastic 2 on the par three 16th after narrowly missing another one on the 14th. I would say he’s very close to breaking his duck on his handicap, about time too!

So me and Lynden were sat as leaders in the clubhouse with 36 points, very quickly joined by Captain Dennis May and Vince Price who also scored 36 points, then later joined also by Dennis McKernon. So 5 of us scored 36 points, then in came the 3rd to last group with Terry Blood scoring 37, and the days winner Dud Tanton with 38. All in all it was a pretty close game with 17 players scoring 32 and over. The highest scorer of the day was a guest, Tony “the bandit” Boardman with 40 points! To his credit he did take the score card back with him to hand in to his club for handicap assessment, so we’ll be expecting him off 14 next time he’s here!

Getting nearest the pin on the 8th was Jo McKernon, but not quite a hole in one like last time, nor did she make a 2! We also set a nearest the pin in 2 on the 18th like we’d done 2 weeks previously on the Fuerte Golf Club, this time it was won and by Aly Tanton! Dennis McKernon and guest Tony Faye joined Lynden in the 2’s club on a rollover too!In the next report I will be telling you of our 1 day Ryder Cup style event, the Trider Cup, other wise known as the “try harder cup” amongst the natives!

Our next events are on 25th and 30th of September and the 2nd of October at the Salinas course, tees are from 10am, as usual just drop me an email to corralejogolf@yahoo.com or give me a call or drop me a text on (0034) 620 161360 if you want to join us for these events or if you want further information about the society. So until the next time, take it easy!

It is simpler to come up with $500 or less in the pinch than $1,000. The best strategy to save a buck would be to educate yourself on the insurance policy company's expectations. Type of vehicle is yet another governing factor to the insurance policy price.
