All of the Summer Cup players and officials

On a very hot and humid day the Summer Cup was contested for the fourth year at the Font del Llop Golf Resort, this is a competition between Golf Society Captains and Secretaries from the Costa Blanca and Costa Calida, organised by the Vega Baja Premier Golf League and supported by Font del Llop Golf Resort. The competition is now the oldest held at Font del Llop

The competition was contested by 40 teams 80 players, using combined Stableford points, but the one main obstacle to overcome on the day would be the 35 degree heat and the fear of dehydration.

All the teams set off with a Shotgun Start to ensure that the teams returned to the clubhouse at the similar time in readiness for the “menu del dia”, and where also provided with a picnic and water half way through the competition.

As part of the tournament there were five Nearest the Pins and two Longest Drives one for men and Ladies, all sponsored by the Longest Drive separately for both Men and Ladies were sponsored by MURCIA525GOLF

Montogo G S were defending the trophy having with the same players as last year, John Day and John Feek but sadly this year fell short, but I am sure they will be back next year to wipe this challenge from their memory.

The three top places were keenly fought for with just two points separating the teams, the results were:
1st: Union Jack (Benidorm) Golf Society – Aldo Zavaroni & Mark Edwards 71 points
2nd: Redbrokers Golf Society – Jose Francisco Samper & Maria Jose Fernandez 70 points
3rd San Miguel Golf Society – Steve Davies & Phil De Lacey 69 points
