The August Bank holiday weekend saw Med Golf enjoy a few days away and visit the Costa de la Luz, where the itinerary included a warm-up round at Nova Sancti Petri on the Saturday, followed by the main tournament at the superb Montenmedio course on the Sunday. Sponsored by Renson Management Ltd., over 50 players made the journey to Montenmedio and it was certainly well worth it for one of Med Golf’s stalwarts Mike Cowburn, when he secured the top spot and as well as winning the sponsor’s crystal trophy, he also booked his place at Valderrama for the Med Golf Masters on Sunday November 5th. In second place was another keen supporter in Tim Mitchell, closely followed by young Dan Kenyon. Brian Griffiths was “top senior” on the day and along with another “senior”, Terry Breedon, also won the “top team” prize. Martin Brown was again the “star quality” player and added another prize to his collection.
Amongst the other prizewinners, nearest the pin winners were Peter Warren, Russ Crawford, Sorren Valbro Jensen, Philip Bootsma and Med Golf’s own Johnathan Goodson, with Chris Warren having the days longest drive. Dan Aldridge had the best round of the day with an excellent score of 76 and Dan Kenyon won the prize for the lowest combined score on the par 3’s.
As the countdown to the Med Golf Masters continues, Mike now joins Louis Calvente, Denny To, Nicky Sanchez, Russ Crawford, Frank Samways, Andy Griffin, Neil Emmerson, Tom Parry, Geoff Watchorn, Finbar Holland, Dan Aldridge and Jeff Richardson at Valderrama, where Med Golf are pleased to welcome Blue Sky Management and Aage Hempel Marine Electronics as the main sponsors.
There are still a couple of events for members to secure their place at Valderrama, with the next qualifying competition being the Lewis Stagnetto trophy at La Duquesa on Sunday 17th September.
