President’s Challenge Trophy 20th October 2017
THE PRESIDENT’S CHALLENGE……………
FRIDAY 20th October, and 17 members and 1 Guest turned out at El Bosque for the President’s Challenge Trophy. Aptly named in view of the location, as El Bosque certainly lived up to the “Challenge”. While the conditions of both weather and course were excellent, scores reflected the nature of this superb venue.
The competition was an individual Stableford and no one actually met Par. The top score of the day and winner of this prestigious trophy was Hans Benzler with 34 points. His nearest rival being Eric Edwards with 32 points.
The NTP’s were on holes 4 and 14 and these were won by Barry Darlow and Peter Ketteringham respectively, both of whom converted them for 2’s. Peter can also claim a “Hole of the day” when he recorded a second 2 on the difficult “over the water” 8th hole, along with Alyson Wood who also managed a 2.
Details of the NTP winners are shown in the full results below.
Hole 4 – Barry Darlow
