CLERMONT golfers beware - Emerald won the Clermont Mitre 10 Shield Match Play and the winning players are not in a hurry to give it back.

The annual competition is in its 10th year with the Clermont Golf Club holding the record for most wins.

Fifteen games of golf are played at each club and each team has 15 players, made up of five golfers from A, B and C grades.

"Clermont have always beaten us badly... we are all pretty happy with ourselves," Emerald team member Steve Taylor said of the win.

"Clermont were good sports. There is really great camaraderie and competition between the clubs.

"We threatened to bolt it (the shield) to the wall so they never get it back."

Emerald may not be able to keep the shield but they made the most of the victory.

"We bought a shirt and all the defeated players signed it and we have an Emerald shirt and all winning players have signed it," Taylor said.

"They will go into a glass case and our shirt (will hang) in the dominant position."
