Windy Wilnis

I think we all liked this new addition to the Banditos agenda. The wind made an already interesting course more so.
Nice to see Joost back with us, and new boy Mikael looks like he needs a thorough recalculation of handicap !

Unfortunatley the useless secretary left the scores on the clubhouse table and has had to rely on people's memories and honesty - not that bandits are known to be dishonest...
The scores are entered and now I suppose, final.

On to the summer season

The winter is over, bring on the sunshine and 18 holes followed by cold beers, rather than the soggy 9 followed up by warmchocolademelkmetslagroom..

Nearly managed to upset Andy and Ian, if those puts on the 7th and 9th had gone in.. But congratulations to Andy for his first win of any golf competition anywhere. We will be watching that handicap creep down over the summer Andy.

Excellent to see a new Bandit today. Welcome to the fray Leonardo !

What can I say? Thanks to my fellow bandits who turned up on a nice winter's morning to take on the Yellow 9 and played just a little bit more badly than I did.

Banditos Match Report – Olympus February 8

The forecast was dry and the day started out nicely, with blue skies and sunshine promising a dry morning. Naturally, by the time the hardier banditos had gathered for the latest event of the winter schedule there were some very threatening dark clouds looming, but play commenced undaunted. The clouds thankfully did nothing worse than loom, so the wet weather gear had a relaxing outing.

Purmerend 17th Jan.

A week of rain and cold made our start uncertain until the morning of the match.

The club message board called the course “severely wet, with water-filled bunkers”, which was very accurate.

Late withdrawals took us down to 2x 3 balls, which was just as well, as it gave us time to look for plugged balls, even on the fairway!

Recent swing adjustments, under instruction of Mr Killin, gave me quiet confidence and a steady approach at the first set up an opening par. Always a good boost to start.
