Inaugural MacDonald Solheim Cup - Sept 19
30 ladies from Portal and Hill Valley teed off at Portal in the Inaugural MacDonald Solheim Cup. The brainchild of Patti Vincent and Emma Goddard, assisted by Judy Yankey (labourer’s mate!) it was a fantastic day, the sun shone all day matching the smiles on everyone’s faces.
Portal ladies represented Europe, and Hill Valley the USA, all resplendent in co-ordinating colours. Singles, Foursomes and Betterball matches were all played in a friendly spirit but everyone wanted to win the beautiful trophy donated and presented by our Golf Ops Manager & Pro. Emma Goddard.
A nail-biting wait for the last match to finish added to the excitement and the result ended in a very friendly draw 41/2 - 41/2 which means that the coveted trophy will stay at Portal for the next 2 years. Hill Valley will host the next match in 2 years time.
Many thanks to Patti and Emma, to Macdonalds for their support, Donna and her staff , Greenkeepers, Mr President Pat for starting proceedings and his support and Daryl & Harry for taking photos and everyone who took part in a great day.
