With 31 men for the Albatros Course on the friday, our club, De Wijnvelden was ready to make its mark. Or shall I say, the Albatros left its mark on us !
We played our first competition on the thursday on the Aigle course, a warm-up for the big day ! Danny had the honors to hit the first ball, and as usual he did a power drive direction the fairway. Lesser hitters also found the fairway, but some were out to test the rough as usual, all in all we did our best !
The Aigle course proved no problem for Pieter, he was in great form scoring 42 stableford points followed by Eric with 39. Rudy & David B came in with 36 points.
With good weather the spirits were high and everyone was silently preparing for the next day.
After Oliver the starter and teaching pro gave us directions and course information at hole 1, we were ready or so we thought !
The Albatros claimed a lot of casualities, as the semi-rough was really tough, and the rough was disasterous. The victims were Frans, Bart C, J-C, Guido, Their, Johan DM, Marc, Rudy, Eric, Bruno & Pierre.
Slightly better players as Robbe, Digby, Vincent, Paul, Maarten, David M, Berge, Jos, Hubert, Wim, Pieter, ScheveArchi, Tony, Bart V & Ben.
The players who had a smile on their faces were François, David B & Dimitri. Dimi was our champion with 39 stableford points and the only man who improved his handicap.
As they say, We Will Be Back ! Digby
