20 Valldigna Golf Society players lined up on the green at the Escorpion Club de Golf in Betera recently for a match against rivals Edetania Golf Society.

The order of the day was a Ryder Cup style four ball match play, which the two teams play twice a year as a home and away competition.

Valldigna stood on the tee as the current holders whilst Edetania were there to win back the coveted trophy, won by Valldigna in the May challenge at El Bosque.

Lorraine Murphy of Valldigna said:

“The course was in tip top condition, the fairways were very true and the greens were fast and very tricky.

We took on the Vuelta de Masia and Vuelta Lagos courses and all 40 players brought their A-game.

As usual, it was a very closely fought competition with both teams taking the lead at one stage. There were some outstanding performances on the day with 50ft. putts being holed and most notably, a hole in one from John Nordlokken on hole 3 on the Lagos course.”

Other nearest the pin winners were:

Hole 6 – David Kerr (Masia course)

Hole 8 – Andy Mitchell (Masia course)

Hole 5 – Sharon Smith (Lagos course)

Hole 8 – Chris Ward (Lagos course)

The Longest Drive on the 6th went to Brian Smith and The Longest Drive on the 8th went to Pat Bradden, both on the Lagos course.

The Ladies Longest Drive went to Clarie Bergaminon the 9th on the Masia course.

Steve Arnold was the lucky first prize raffle winner, winning his game for free, along with many other lucky winners of some excellent prizes.

The final score was a 7 and 3 win to Edetania. Valldigna gracefully handed back the trophy but promised: “we’ll be back!”
