Visauto Competition – April 17th 2016

/Visauto Competition – April 17th 2016

First we would like to apologise to those players that tried to enter this event that we couldn’t accommodate. Spaces were snapped up at an early date but even with La Galiana making 62 buggies available and almost all tees double loaded we simply had to put a cap on it. The ‘Le Mans Style’ start was something to behold as 62 buggies left the clubhouse toward their allocated tee for the shotgun start.

If you look at reviews for La Galiana, one word appears again and again… ‘stunning’ ..  and who could argue with that. This and the generous sponsorship of Visauto Mercedes obvious reasons for the over subscription.

Because of the large numbers it was decided to split the field into 3 divisions, equally divided in number as possible.

Top slot went to relatively new to the game Shiyong Yu with a remarkable 45points. This reflected his desire and determination to reduce his handicap  …. mission accomplished with a 4.4 reduction from 28.2 to 23.8.

Winners and grinners for the divisions can be seen above with all of those making the podium returning excellent scores. Bracketed numbers are playing handicaps on the day.
Special mention must go to David Robertson for his ‘eagle 2’ on hole 17 and we wonder how he holed his 2nd? Did he drive the green and putt or was it a holed pitch. Maybe someone will let us know.

No secret about Bonnie Wallace’s talent in winning the nearest the pin on hole 14, as she tells everyone she meets. Witnessed by yours truly, I can confirm it was a driver from 90yds but cleverly using the long grass in front of the green to put the brakes on … remarkable!
There were a few close calls for a ‘hole in one’ at the short 3rd but the prize of a new Mercedes Smartcar escaped us all. Carried over to the next Visauto sponsored event .. be in it to win it!
