Turkey Golf, September 2019 Report

Well we were lucky with our flights with Thomas Cook, on time both ways. If we had gone the day after, we might still be in Turkey.

Flights were good and transfer to hotel good. Champagne provided when we got to the coach. We have to start drinking early to get used the All-inclusive offer.

The hotel was phenomenal. It looked just like a cruise ship.

In the coach going to the Hotel, it was suggested by John Martin that we comply with Sharia law whilst on holiday and anyone messing with the draw sheet would have their hand cut off. So guess what. Yes John who should have been in the first group, arrived just in time for the last group. His golf one handed was quite good. If fact he plays onehanded now.

The golf at Dunes was very good considering most were hungover. Kevin Bolton came in with the best score of 36, followed by Jay Chambers with 35. Chris Waterfield had the best score of 32 amongst the ladies.

On day 2 at Pines with another hot day of 35°, John Leigh and Kevin Bolton both scored 33 points. Barbara Johnson with 26 and Betty Fallows with 25 were the best scores amongst the ladies.

Day 3 we were back at Dunes for another blisteringly hot day, and Barbara Johnson had a very good 27, followed by Frances Sinnott with 24. The mens winner was Johnny Shepherd with 33, followed by Jay Chambers on 29.

Day 4 we played a beautiful course called Titanic. John Martins’ hand must have started to heal because he scored a remarkable 36, followed by the bandit called Kevin Bolton with 33. The ladies winner on day 4 was Carol Howard with 26 and Betty Fallows with 22.

The overall Ladies winner was Betty fallows with 90 points and the Mens winner was Kevin Bolton with a score of 130.
