Valldigna Golf Society
Monthly stableford competition July 10 at La Galiana What can one say; the course was in immaculate condition a credit to the green keeping staff, especially at this time of year. The yellow tees seemed to be set to test us, as if the course was not hard enough. It was good to see so many brave the weather and they were not disappointed. A good game was enjoyed by everyone with scores to match and the cold beer at the nineteenth hole really hit the spot.
