The entrants played the unusual format of ‘Irish Rumble’, where for those of us who weren’t familiar with this format meant that for holes 1 - 6, one score counted; holes 7 - 12, the best two scores counted; holes 13 - 17, the best three scores counted and excitingly at hole 18, all scores counted from all four players in the team.
The final hole on the day proved to be interesting for one team! Club Captain John O’Neil, his wife Linda and team mates Tina and Tony Raphael did not score any points. They graciously collected the prize of a Group Golf Lesson to be taken with Adam Collinson, a Golf Pro at the Resort, for the least points scored on that hole!
After the event and due to the excellent organisation from Katalin Daniels, the players feasted on a delicious barbecue, accompanied by a complimentary drink… all highly deserved after a day of superb golf. Following the food the eagerly anticipated prize-giving ceremony began.
The first category ‘Nearest the Pin’ was won by ladies winner Alison Gilchrist of Elea on the 17th and by the men’s winner John Nielson on the 12th. Scoring was steady throughout the field all day and we are extremely pleased to announce the overall Senior Team Cup Event winners were Philip and Anne Walmsley from Lytham St. Anne’s Golf Club and our very own Linda and Yiannis Demetriou, with a total score of 95 points. The Runners-up were Mark Watson, Paul Majoor, Barrie Hattam and Richard Grimwood with 89 points.
After the ceremony, Mr Philip Walmsley gave a gracious speech thanking everyone including the Green Keepers, the Caddie Masters, the Golf Pro Shop staff and the Food & Beverage team, for making the day such a special and successful event hosted at the wonderful Aphrodite Hills Resort.
May I also take this opportunity on behalf of Aphrodite Hills Golf to thank you all for your continued support and I wish you the best of success on the golf course and may all your drives be long and may your putts drop in!
