The tournament took place on July, 20 and the next meeting will take place at La Serena on August, 3.
Mª J. PEÑAS / ALICANTE. The Alicante golf course showed off its best side. Streets, tees and greens ready…. and all the obstacles and out-of-bounds were checked before the test. Everything in apparently natural harmony and order. The truth is that “a golf tournament requires a lot of effort on the days running up to the day, even more when the event in question is part of the prestigious Golf Challenge Ballantine’s Blue 2013”, acknowledged the manager of Lo Romero Golf, Jaime Ibáñez.
The human team on the field was also up to job, helping to find balls and asking players to play them if there is a possibility of scoring on the hole. This kept the action moving and a day that started at 08.30 hours with 106 players ended on time. A welcome achievement, taking into account that the temperatures this month have been high and, in spite of the fact that on July, 20 the sky was quite cloudy with little wind, gave a slight respite to golfers. As already occurred in the two previous competitions of the circuit, the winners of the event were classified to take part in the final on September, 13 in Altorreal. Their names: Nils Thomas Rennemark, with 42 point; Vicente López (40) and Antonio González (38), in the 1st category. In 2nd: Antonio Martínez, with 46 points and Gabriel Ballester (43). In women: Susana Eva Navarro (40) and Blanca Beltrán (37). Romy Saloni De Heij (40), classified in Hacienda del Álamo, won the competition. The ‘scratch’ champion: Samuel Curtis (33).
