A SCORCHING hot day greeted the 19th as they played a Dusty Bin (3 – 2 – 1) competition at Valle del Este golf course.
After tackling the bacon rolls and coffee at Karen’s they set out to tackle the course which was playing quite long, but with the greens very receptive.
The winning team of Bernie Obrien, Dave Wadey and Vaughan Williams had ‘Fred the Ghost’ to thank for contributing on 6 holes on their way to amassing 80 points. A very close 2nd on 78 points were Nigel Greenwood, Bernard Erreca, Richard Wild and Geoff Smith. Another six teams finished with scores in the 70s which was commendable due to the blistering heat. There was only one 2, recorded by Pete Dow on the 12th.
Nearest the pins:-
6th Tony Mackay.
8th in 2 Dave Wadey.
11th in 2 Mike Esposito.
12th John Briddon.
14th Richard Wild.
The 19th Hole Golf Society play every week on local courses.
