Society day 18th September - Fuerteventura Golf Club

Boy what a tough day we had on Tuesday 18th September. Held at Fuerteventura Golf Club once again, the men in black were expecting some stick from the pink pussies, but thankfully they had too many other things on their minds, like trying to get the ball in the hole. I don’t know what made it so tough, it was only an average to strong wind, the sun was shining but they had let the rough grow just a little bit more than normal, just long enough to hide the ball by about 2 inches. This did make it very hard to find your ball if you went into the rough and meant quite a lot of time was spent looking for balls amongst the troops. This ultimately and inevitably lead to a long and frustrating round for most.
I was in the lead group in a 3 ball with Vice President Rob Hughes and Alan Wrigley. Rob is renowned for his rapid pace, but even as a 3 ball we still took nearly 4 ½ hours, the following group just over 5!

The difficulty was reflected in the scores with only 5 players scoring 30 points or over. Phil Richards got 30 and Peter Flynn and I scored 32. It was a tie for first place with Terry Blood and Eva Krivacska tied with 34 points. This meant it was a card play-off on the back 9 which Eva just sneaked by one point. Getting nearest the pin on the 4th was Paul Benham. We also set a nearest the pin in 2 on the 18th like we’d done for the last 3 events, yet again no one managed to get on the green in 2! All our 3 went to the right and even just off the 9th green! There was only one 2 in our 2’s club this week, achieved by our winner, Eva Krivacska! Alan Wrigley, though already on his way back to the UK won the sweep, so he’s got a free round when he returns later in the year! Our next events are on 2nd of October at the Salinas course, tees are from 10am, and the 9th, 14th & 16th at Fuerteventura Golf Club also tees from 10am. As usual just drop me an email to corralejogolf@yahoo.com or give me a call or drop me a text on my mobile on (0034) 620 161360 if you want to join us for these events or if you want further information about the society.
All the bestDave Brown
