EL PLANTIO GOLF RESORT – 29th AUGUST 2014-08-31
The inaugural annual tournament between the two golf league teams was played at El Plantio Golf Resort where 18 players represented their respective League.
The El Plantio course is always a challenging parkland style course and since its improvement the course, it was an ideal venue for the first of these planned future annual events to be played on a Home and Away basis.
The format was a modified Fourball Better Ball Matchplay with a point for each hole won and a half four a draw and a maximum of a 162 points up for grabs. For each pairing the maximum was 18 points
With the temperatures up into the 30’s it was not going to be an easy day.
In the first four matches the VBPGL must have felt that it could be their day as they came in leading by 2.5 to 1.5 games (38.5 to 33.5 points)
But QGSL pulled it back in the next four matches to now lead by 4 points (70 to 74) and it really came down to the final pairings and if VBPGL were to win they needed a solid minimum of a 12 to 6 win but its went to the QGSL and with it the trophy.
FINAL SCORE: VBPGL 76 points QGSL 86 points
Congratulations Quesada Golf Super League
Both teams stated how much they enjoyed the day and the major benefit they get to play with other golfers they would not normally come into contact with on the golf course, and this can only be good for both of these Leagues and local golf.
The VBPGL Captain Ron Nicholson presented Ian Faulkner Captain of the QGSL with the trophy and I am sure that their team shirts next year will sport a golf star. Ian thanked both teams for the good spirit in which the competition had been played and for Ivie Davies and Ron Nicholson for arranging the day and to all the staff at El Pantio Golf Resort for ensuring the course was in good condition and their support.
