Order of Merit

The WHS software is not ready to produce an Order of Merit list yet. The current standings however are as follows.

RMGC Stableford Cup v2

A strong field of 99 competitors took part in last weekend’s RMGC Stableford Cup, played over Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Good weather overall, with stronger than average wind blowing on Saturday morning.

The course played tough, mostly due to higher rough and narrower fairways on some holes. The fact that nobody played under handicap is testament. To Phil Luxon, Andy Borg and the greenkeepers team – thanks, but no thanks! 😜

Congratulations to Kenneth Micallef and Harri Lehtiniemi for scoring 36 points. Kenneth is declared the winner on a back-6 count-back. Alexander Hillblom claims 3rd place with 35 points, also on count-back over Andy Borg, Keith Donovan, Andrew Saunders, and Irwin Gratil. Top-3 receive €70, €50 and €30 winners’ vouchers respectively, and lots of OOM points. The Order of Merit table (as from 5th September) will be published shortly.

The Two’s ball sweep was collected by Peter Coleman x2, Andy Borg x2, Martin Azzopardi, Matthew Mangion, Finlay Gratil, and Peter Satariano. Eight balls each.

Comp prize vouchers and ball sweeps will be credited to winners’ accts, as usual. Well done to all!!

A reminder to all…when applicable, and when the system is online, please ALWAYS input your scores into the PSI system and deposit your card in the box after your round, even when you decide to scratch your card. Your input saves time and energy when reconciling comp entrants with online scores and physical cards. Thank you.

This coming Thu, Fri & Sat we look forward to the season’s BOV October Monthly Medal. Finally, subscription to the Alliance Captains League is open for another few days, until Monday 5th Oct 16:00.

Enjoy your golf.

Victor, CompSec

New fence for driving range

We are delighted to be able to inform you that works have begun on the installation of a purpose-built fencing system for our driving range. The works, being carried out by SportMalta, will take around 15 working days to complete and driving range opening hours will definitely be impacted whilst the project is carried out. A communication detailing when the range will be unavailable will be sent out under separate cover once it becomes clearer how the contractors work will be phased. For the next few days the range will be closed as the initial pole positioning works get under way.
