Our second Sala Golf event of the year took place last Saturday, at Los Flamingos, Villa Padierna.
Thankfully the Golfing Gods answered our prayers by clearing up the bad weather making way for a day of sunny, clear blue skies!
The Golfers were welcomed with a touch of La Sala’s signature Hospitality, with crispy bacon sandwiches on arrival alongside a selection of the latest Sala Golf merchandise to take home as keepsakes. Cold Beers were handed out by Sala Ambassadors with Tine from International Marbella keeping everyone hydrated and refreshed on the 10th tee with a Gin & Tonic Bar and homemade sausage rolls. The International Marbella team even set up a golf quiz, which was won by The Buoys 1!
Huge congratulations to Ryan McDonald, Joe Statham and Joe Crowley for winning the closest to the pin and longest drive prizes and to our Individual Winner Aaron Kavanagh who managed to finish with 41 points, winning two Sala Golf events in a row.
For the team prizes, The Marbella Muppets came in with a team score of 85 points, just beating The Pink Panthers on a countback. The runner up team of the day was The Mickeys, coming in with 86 points. And finally, our team winner of the day, with a team score of 90 points, was Gecko and The Bogeymen who owned the day bringing home the main prize!
New addition to the league Matt Nuttall took home the wooden spoon trophy for the first time, and accepted it like a PRO! Good man!
So far, we have raised over 3000€ for our charity foundation, The Elena Gaite Foundation. Keep up the good work for this very special cause.
On a final note, we would like to say a huge thank you to all our fabulous sponsors, to Vinomarket for supplying all the wine for our Team and Individual prizes, to Martin and ONE Residences for their continued support and fantastic deals for our golfers, and to Tine and her team at International Marbella for the Gin & Tonic Bar and prizes!
Don’t forget that La Sala by the Sea is re-opening for the summer season on the 30th April 2021 so join us at the stylish Thai inspired beachfront destination that is filled with plenty of sun, sea, soft sand, sumptuous dining and laidback Mediterranean vibes. Please note that this will also be the prize giving location for after our next event at Atalaya!
