Las Ramblas – Thursday 29th September 2022
Alfies Golf Society Captain’s Day match this year had a last-minute change of venue due to the booked course being closed at short notice. I must thank our Match Secretary, Wayne Stevenson, for sterling work to rearrange the booking and book us in at Las Ramblas.
On the day 25 players and guests took on the challenge that is Las Ramblas. The weather was good and the course in reasonable condition considering it had recently had heavy footfall and the greens had been top dressed.
Las Ramblas was up to its challenging best with only one player matching net par.
The presentations and prize giving was completed at the Captain’s Day Dinner, which was held at La Finca by QFC at Lomas de Don Juan. It was an excellent venue. We were well looked after by the management and attentive staff, so many thanks to them.
The Blind Pairs was won by Eddie Morning and Mal Green, each receiving €5.
Gary Armstrong and Amrit Dawidow won €20 each from the football cards.
The Captain’s chosen charity is Help at Home, and the fund currently stands at €1,596.05.
N P Hole 6 went to Dave Steward, N P in 2 Hole 9 went to Tony Hall
