For this months game twenty two of us returned to the Alicante campo de golf although we only played there last month, however, due to Alenda where we were booked to play this time and along with many courses being hollow tined during this month we needed to find an alternative at short notice and Alicante was available also the first-rate substitute.

The course again was in excellent condition, along with favourable weather conditions and after consuming a café con leche along with the tostadas that came with our deal we were ready to go.

After our game we returned to the Mini golf bar in Quesada for our presentation and a couple of refreshments of our choice, the outcome of the game was as follows BF9 with nineteen points and not implicated in the first three results being won by Helen Beddows our BB9 winner was Quentin Pegden with seventeen points, both received a bottle of Rioja, there are six par threes at Alicante and five of the NTPs were hit in one, the third by Tony Wilson the sixth by Helen Beddows and the eighth, twelfth and fifteenth by Peter List winning the three holes.

They all received a sleeve of golf balls for each NTP par three, in third place with thirty-five points was John Rush winning a bottle of Rioja, our second place was taken by Dave Owen with thirty-six points and taking home bottles of red and white wine , but our winner on the day with an excellent score of thirty-seven points was Ian Allison who received a bottle of Bacardi.

Our two’s competition had to be shared by three winners who were Peter List, Helen Beddows and guest Paul Manson, finally our soccer card winner with Norwich was Quentin Pegden, I have to say well done to all our winners and commiserations to the rest of us, our next months game will be held at Roda golf course.
