On Saturday 2nd December we held our annual Christmas Competition. The players wore lots of Christmas jumpers, hats and outfits hoping to win some prizes. After discussion the organisers decided Marion and Herman vdV were the best turned out and received prizes.
Then onto the competition itself. 40 people played a Reverse Waltz in teams of 4 on the Blue & White Course with a halfway bar served by the best barmaid in Almerimar, Debbie. Thank you Debbie and Rosemary for the mince pies and sausage rolls. They were very welcome after our early start.
In the evening we had our presentation dinner and dancing at Restaurante El Espigón where Santa and his Elf helper arrived with sacks full of presents for the secrect Santa.
Prizes were awarded for nearest the pin on the 8th hole on the Blue course, and Straightest Drive on the 9th hole on the Blue course. The only lady who managed to land on the green for nearest the pin was Tanya with a distance of 15m from the hole. The men faired a little better with 3 men on the sheet for nearest the pin, but the winner with a measurement of only 82cm was Donal. Maggis, the winning lady for the straightest drive landed her ball just 20cm from the line and for the men the winner was Gerard with a measurement of 1m.
There were prizes for the the top 3 teams. The winning team in the main competition, who came in with a score of 95 points was Pepe, Des, Ingrid and Lynne, Second place with a score of 92 points was the team of Olli, Mick Cl, Maggis and Vicky and with a score of 90 points in third place were the team of Steve, Chloe, Joan and Jörgen. Congratulations to our three winning teams. But nobody went away without a small prize for taking part.
