Last Saturday, November 29th, we celebrated our Christmas Tournament at Golf Platja de Pals, played in pairs in the format of a Scramble.
Despite the weather forecast, the rain gave a truce, and we started the tournament as planned, with a shotgun at 9:30.
Following tradition, the participants before to play, had to guess the weight of the animal which accompanied us, this year a lamb. Some of the most determined players were encouraged to pick the animal, trying to guess more accurately the weight.
Our President, Mr Baltasar Parera, was the player who was closer to guess the weight of the lamb, for only 20 grams of the real weight. Mr. Parera gave the award to Ms. Suzanne Pestre.
After the tournament, took place the Christmas lunch. Prizes were awarded by Mr. Parera who wanted to congratulate everyone for Christmas. The winners were:
1st classified couple:
Mr. Angel Romero and Xavier Borrás - 47 points
2nd classified couple:
Mr. Joaquín de Ros and Mr. Roger Padrós - 44 points
The winners of the special awards were:
