The entrants arrived fearing the worst that rain was imminent, but were pleasantly surprised when the weather - like their scores - had the majority smiling! A few were feeling grey though, as their putts failed to match their drives…
Christine Smith hit a great shot on Hole 15, to claim the traditional and the individual ‘Nearest the Pin’ prize. The winners last year could not retain their title, as their good score of 40 points put them into third place, behind two very good scores of 41 points. The countback decision was also a tough one, as both groups amassed the same 9-hole splits of 20:21. So the countback went to the back six holes and this resulted in the Runners-Up being Angela and Blue Turnpenny from Episkopi Golf Club. The winners from Aphrodite Hills Golf Club were Yiannis and Linda Demetriou. The prizes were presented by John O’Neil, Club Captain of Aphrodite Hills, for which he was thanked and wished well by Andrew Darker, Director of Golf, for the forthcoming year’s golf in his captaincy year.
Congratulations to all the prize winners from the Golf Department at Aphrodite Hills and more importantly, a very sincere ‘Happy New Year’ to all who play golf at Aphrodite Hills.
