Club Championships 2016
October is club championship month at Santa Maria Golf Club with the men, ladies and juniors all competing over the second weekend of the month. Another splendid weekend for the superb condition of the course, fantastic weather and the great atmosphere between the participants.
This year David, Carol and young Marco set out to defend their titles from 2015, David being successful in his defense. David Sharpe with a total of 149, beating his previous score by 8 shots with rounds of 71, 78 was plenty to see off any challengers who fancied their chances this time around. Second with a total of 165 was Franz Scherer.
In the Ladies championship Inma Gonzalez shot rounds of 86, 76 for a total of 162, enough to take first prize from last year’s winner Carol du Toit who finished 10 back on 172.
In the junior championship 13 year old Fermín Palma completed what has been a very successful year for the young star and took the Terry Wills Trophy. He carded a gross 3 over par 73 to win by 5 shots from Rocco Repetto’s 78. Marco Furnell lowered his winning score by four shots from last year and took the handicap category with a net 72 and Estonian Richard Teder second with net 75. Crissi Wills, widow of our late captain Terry, founder of the junior program, presented the prizes.
Our restaurant H19, received praise for their efforts in the evening holding the prize presentation and gala dinner.
