Surprisingly good weather for the Banditos first Winter game at Purmerend Red course. Congratulations to Michael on his first Banditos win and even adding to the birdy count in the process.

A short recap on winter rules: 

  • 9 hole games
  • Preferred lies on the fairway
  • Best 3 scores for the season count towards the final score
  • No prizes, lots of honour.

Purmerend - Sun 26th Oct 2014

Ray goes top of the leaderboard after toying with Houtrak's back 9

With 11 players turning out for Houtrak ,and with ideal conditions (well ok ten degrees too hot), a good score was a strong possibility.  

Ray took some time to get rolling on the front 9 getting to just 15 points but then turned on the afterburners from the 10th  to score 23 on the back 9 (in just 7 holes, including 3x4 pointers and two streepjes) which as they were on holes 16 and 18 made one wonder....

Ray repays his sponsor at Haverleij

A hugely hot day and an empty course greeted the Banditos at Haverleij.  Andy had lost 3kgs in sweat before he got to the first tee.  Our stamina was tested, and the green speeds in Brabant appear to be somewhat slower than Scotland. 

Congratulations to Niall for a first ever prize with the Banditos with a sumptuous drive down 11 and also to Kleis for a 15 foot Neary at 17th which was just a tricky  97m on the day.
