12 December 2023

My week started with the dentist! 2 crowns needed but they should see me out, I hope. We
had a lively and enjoyable evening at the Art Society Christmas quiz at Frescos in the port.
Sorry to report that we did not win but we did not disgrace ourselves. On Tuesday 33 players turned out for the Turkey Trot. Traditionally, this is a competition to win an actual turkey but due to the high probability that the winner would not be here to cook it, I decided to present a token plastic turkey and the money was gladly received by the winners.
1st – Svetlana Friedl – 39 points with a birdie on hole 8 – turkey winner!
2nd – Eduardo Martin Manzanas – 30 points
3rd – Paul Holliday – 37 points
4th – Seamus Desmond – 36 points
Other birdies from Anne Middlehurst on hole 13 & Debbie Richards on
hole 7, who also won nearest the pin on that hole for the ladies.
Nearest the Pin in 2 on Hole 6: Seamus Desmond
Nearest the Pin on Hole 7: Debbie Richards
Best Gross: Paul Holliday (75)
Tissue/Plastic chicken: Jon Barber (17 points)

On Thursday, it looked like rain so just 5 ladies played; however, the sun shone on the righteous and the forecast was wrong.
1st – Debbie Richards – 37 points
2nd – Agi Savitz – 31 points
The weather brightened up considerably over the week-end giving us all a fabulous day on Saturday for the Christmas Texas Scramble. We all looked very festive in our jumpers and hats. There were 68 players and it was a great day all round. The Christmas meal afterwards was excellent, I especially liked the celeriac, hazelnut and truffle soup – sooo tasty.
There were fantastic results – it is amazing the number of birdies that some teams had! We only managed 2 but also had 2 bogies – no where near good enough.
1st – Frank O’Hara, Anne Middlehurst, Diane Harmer and Keith Harmer (50.3)
2nd – Tony Flanagan, Jon Hale, Jules Hale and Ruth Bailey (51.7)
3rd – David Coupe, Iqbal Dharamsi, Yvonne Chu and Malene Bjorlow (53.9)
4th – Josh Hunter, John Hunter, Brian Arnott and Paul Ingebrigtsen (54.1)
5th – Jorg Kühnert, Heidi Kühnert, Anthony Dols and Janine Dols (55.6)
6th – Eduardo Martin, Seamus Desmond, Yolanda Zaurin and Liz Desmond (56.6)
Nearest the Pin on Hole 5 (Men): Frank O’Hara
Nearest the Pin on Hole 12 (Ladies): Hannelore Heck
Longest Drive on Hole 8 (Ladies): Yvonne Chu
Longest Drive on Hole 15 (Men): Josh Hunter
Best Outfits: Iqbal Dharamsi and Malene Bjorlow
