Best Away Trip, Again??

This year’s Away Trip to Murcia was a great success, again. There were 24 members, our largest contingent for some time, who all enjoyed the great weather and none of the showers that were forecasted for the Wednesday.

The first day was played on a new course to most of us, La Finca, where the format was an Accumulator Team game (2 best scores on the par 5’s, 3 best scores on the par 4’s and all scores to count on the par 3’s) The winners were Danny Herron, Neville Richardson, Keith Price & David Downes with a superb score of 124 points, which was 12 points clear of Donna Green, Jenny Downes, Bob Fell & Moe Farouky.

 Thursday we played Las Colinas, which is a Championship course and a tough challenge for many of us, so the format was an “easier” Accumulator Team game with only the two best scores to count. However, this “easier” format did not deter Danny Herron, Neville Richardson, Ian Mackenzie & John Cook from producing an excellent scored of 78 points, which included Neville scoring the only 2 of the day, on the 16th par 3 hole, for 5 points!! Second place went to David Kerr, David Blakeley, Mike Harding & Bob Fell with 74 points.

The last day was at Lo Romero, one of our favourite courses with its signature hole being the 18th island green and it was noteworthy that Bob Fell was the only golfer to par this difficult par 4 hole. The team format was a ‘Waltz’ and the winners were Donna Green, Keith Price, David Kerr & Alan Simpson with 86 points, followed by David Blakeley, Neville Richardson Anne Edwards & Alyson Wood with 83 points.

Jenny Downes was second last year, with 26 points, in the Par 3 Charity Challenge but this year Jenny went one step further and achieved a highly commendable score of 34 points to beat Neville Richardson by 3 points.

Finally, I would like to record my appreciation for Anne’s efforts in arranging the trip, and my thanks also go to Donna & Robert whose efforts helped to make the Trip go smoothly.   But, as always, the greatest thanks must go to all the ‘Trippers’, who made the whole event so pleasurable, again.
