The Snow Golf Valberg
The SNOW GOLF VALBERG, which experienced a slight shift due to a snowfall on the night from Friday to Saturday, took place Monday, April 2 under a radiant sun and spring.
The entire team of the Tourist Office, directed by Virginie MIGNOT and the President of the Office of Sports, Christian GUEMY, have worked to make the event a success.
And it was a success!
The grooming of the course (on the hole n ° 1 of the Valberg Golf Club) was executed by Fernand CARCIOFFI of the Ski lifts of Valberg who started the operation from Friday then reissued it on Sunday morning!
The cold of the night froze the course putting the last “paw” for a good reception of the balls.
The conditions were met so that the fifteen participants could compete in a festive and mountain atmosphere.
The course, designed by Christian GUEMY, consisted of 3 “playful” holes 1 Par 3 of 110 m and two Par 4 of 220 and 300 m as well as a 4 ° Par 3 for the contest of Approach of 90 m.
After having trained and prepared for the conditions, all in all, the players gathered for the approach competition for which we remember the Golf Méditerranée had endowed the award ceremony with trips to Morocco, au Domaine des Remparts de Marrakech, a rangefinder and boxes of bullets.
All participants were able to train for the approach competition to assess the distance and range of the ball. But sometimes it’s frustrating when you’re closest … to training! That’s what happened to one of the podium candidates, a superb approach to training and beaten during the approach competition … really annoying!
Virginie MIGNOT and Christian GUEMY, in front of the success of the operation, think about a format that would go from 3 to 6 holes for 2019!
Let’s bet that their idea will move the world for an annual Snow Golf Valberg meeting late March early April.
The winners of the 1st edition are:
1st Christian ROUME who wins a stay at the Domaine des Remparts de Marrakech
2 ° Lucas GUEMY who wins a stay at the Domaine des Remparts de Marrakech
3 ° Dominique BERRUER who wins a rangefinder
