MED Golf’s season opener the Bistro Point Trophy was won by Richard Atkinson in extremely tricky conditions.

The event at Dońa Julia provided a good but fair challenge to golfers of all abilities, although  through no fault of the golf club the greens were not up to their usual standard.

Richard scored a stunning 42 points, seven points clear of his nearest rival. He also won the best gross score on the five Par-3 holes at one over par and, with his playing partner James Barr, won the best pairs prize with a combined score of 75 points.   

The Best Gross Trophy, for which every hole must be scored, was narrowly won by Matthew Charlesworth with a round of 80 beating Javi Hunter by one stroke. Matthew won the longest drive and was runner up in another category.

Category 1 (handicaps 0 to 12): Runner up with 34 points was Matthew Charlesworth. The winner was Peter Grüetter with a score of 35 points. Peter also won the best senior prize.  

Category 2 (handicaps 13 to 22): the runner up was James Barr on handicap with a score of 33 points playing off handicap 18 for the first time in Category 2 - quite a remarkable achievement given that James was playing off handicap 27 in June of this year. The winner was Louis Calvente with a score of 34 points. Louis is a seasoned Med Golf member and no stranger to the prize list.

Category 3 (handicap 23 and above): Andreas Granlund was the runner up with a score of 32 points and the winner, also on handicap with 32 points was Eddie Diaz.

Nearest the pin winners were: Javi Hunter, Louis Calvente, Andreas Granlund, Mike Cowburn and Tim Mitchell. Nearest the Pin in 2 on a Par 4 was Kevin Jones and Dan Lomax was Nearest the Pin in 3 on a Par 5.  

The next event is the Admiral Casino Trophy at the San Roque Club New course on Sunday October 22.
