a lovely November day on Condado…………………

.

This week I was going to call the conditions ‘blustery’ but the players remarked that it was much worse than that – gale force was the term used! The greens were quite testy after being rolled, so once the wind got your putt it just decided to do it’s own thing! Nevertheless, there were 6 teams within 2 shots at the top of the leaderboard. 56 players today.

Thanks again to Liz Beaton for acting as starter.

 

.

1st      Philip Aitkin & Stephen Bell…………………………………….44pts

2nd    Nigel Howson & Tony Andrews……………………………..43pts (on countback)

3rd    Colin Lloyd & Lynda Lloyd……………………………………….43pts (on countback)

Stephen and Philip, this week’s winners…………

no calm lake on 11 today……………

Next week is a special event, the Kevin Smith team challenge which is a 4 person stableford competition.

Perfect weather for the penultimate leg of the annual Apollo Air – only one more after this to find the champion for 2018. Thanks to Lyn Bell who acted as starter, and more thanks to Lyn and Tanya Seckington – Alicia asked them to bring some xmassy things back from the UK for prizes, and not only did they do that but they added to them at their own cost. Thanks girls!

The greens continue to improve and the lakes are full again.

Astri is still on form…………

John won the trophy for November, but Tony Andrews is still in pole position for the annual prize, but just 2 points clear of Shaun Cairney – still all to play for!

Played with Alicia and Ken this week, enough photos of them at the presentation, so a couple of our wildlife………………………………..

Now the lakes are full again wildlife returns – here is a family of egrets who have just arrived.

a sad picture – we have had a couple of herons visiting the lakes, but one of them was unfortunately found dead at the side of the 4th…………….
