19th Hole Golf Society 23/12/2015
Wednesday 23rd December in gloomy misty, cold conditions a depleted number of 19th Holers arrived at Lorca Golf resort to play a Christmas Two Division 3 Club Challenge. Most dressed in or wore Christmas themed clothing to add the Christmas spirit to the competition. Gary Grey easily won the themed dress competition by wearing a self decorated hat complete with Rudolph and Santa and a Christmas Jumper with flashing Christmas lights.
In Division 1 Brian (Dee) Lowden was unstoppable, scoring 35 points to easily take the win from Tony Mackay on 33 points. Tony´s trick shot on the 15th was definitely divine intervention, his short low approach shot to the green hit the now dry “moat” area bounced 20 metres in the air landed on the wooden sleepers supporting the green, again took off and landed 1 metre from the hole, he spent the next two holes searching the sky for Father Christmas and Rudolph.
Chrissie Dow just crept home the winner with 34 points in division 2, from Mike Palmer on 33 points. R& S Golf donated the two trophies for the event. A quick dash back to La Vida for superb complimentary sandwiches and refreshments to finish off a great days fun golf that put everyone, well nearly everyone, into the Christmas spirit.
Division 1 – 1st Brian Lowden 35 points (21), 2nd Tony Mackay 33 points (22)
Division 2 – 1st Chrissie Dow 34 points (35), 2nd Mike Palmer 33 points (28)

Twos – 4th Tony Mackay, 12th Chrissie Dow
