Another great day of competitive golf took place on Saturday 21st May for the Sala Golfers at the outstanding Valle Romano Golf Course, a paradise next to the Mediterranean Coast.
The Sala golfers were welcomed back by the Sala Golf Team with sandwiches as well as a selection of Sala Golf merchandise, before venturing off to their tees for a shotgun start.
The proud sponsors were Vinomarket supplying a selection of the best wines for the Individual and Team prizes. International Marbella were back on the 10th Tee with their premium Gin & Tonic bar, homemade sausage rolls and a charismatic James Bond quiz.
After a splendid day on the course, the Sala Golfers made their way back to La Sala Puerto Banus for the prize giving, receiving a warm welcome as they enjoyed a selection of free flowing nibbles and drinks.
Charity lies at the heart of the Sala Golf competitions and as always the players raised a substantial amount of funds for the very special Elena Gaite Foundation, through the Charity Auction and Raffle. A huge thank you to all the Foundation team members as well as the golfers for showing their support for a great cause.
The Closest to the Pin (Par 3) on hole 4 was won by Dale Atkinson, taking home a magnum of wine, supplied and sponsored by International Marbella.
The Closest to the Pin approach shot (Par 4) on hole 14 was won by Mike Murphy, also winning a magnum of wine, supplied and sponsored by International Marbella.
