On Sunday, January 28th, Atalaya Golf & Country Club’s spectacular Old Course, which celebrates its 50th Anniversary this year, was the scene of the Andalucía Golf Tournament. The 18-hole, individual Stableford, open competition attracts top amateur golfers.
The day’s windy conditions made play quite challenging but failed to deter the tournament’s keen competitors from producing some highly creditable scores.
Trophies, as well as prizes valued at more than €1,500, were presented to the three leading players in two Stableford categories, and special awards were given for the Longest Drive (gentlemen and ladies), the ball Closest to the Pin, and the best Scratch score. Gifts were, also, awarded through a raffle.
In the First Handicap Category Francisco José Pérez Holgado placed First with 41 points. Etienne Baudouin Alcojor was Second with 38 points, and Enrique Herrera García placed Third with 36 points, beating Antonio Flores Simón on a handicap count back.
In the Second Handicap Category Álvaro Pérez Cruz placed First with 39 points. Nicolas Carrasco Díez was Second with 35 points, and Mike Christopher was Third with 35 points, winning on a handicap count back.
Scratch winners were: Enrique Herrera García, First Place; Francisco José Pérez Holgado, Second Place; and Pedro Miguel Cevey Mendoza, Third Place.
The Longest Drive awards went to Steve Cameron and Matilde Gálvez Periañez, and Closest to the Pin was captured by Juan Francisco Lazo Córdoba.
