Sala Golfers take on Los Flamingos Golf followed by awards ceremony at La Sala.
Another incredible day of competitive golf took place on Saturday 25th June for the Sala Golfers at the outstanding Los Flamingos Golf Resort boasting breathtaking views of the Mediterranean sea, Africa and Gibraltar.
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 9.30am shotgun start.
The proud sponsors were there to support, with Vinomarket supplying the best wines for the Individual and Team prizes. International Marbella were back and on form on the 10th Tee with their premium Gin & Tonic bar and famous homemade sausage rolls.
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 16 was won by John Walker, taking home a magnum of wine, supplied and sponsored by International Marbella.
The Closest to the Pin approach shot (Par 4) on hole 5 was won by Tore Pedersen, also winning a magnum of quality wine.
The Longest Drive for men on hole number 11 was won by Richard Zuhlke, who managed to smash his drive down the fairway and take home a magnum of wine.
The Longest Drive for ladies, also on hole number 11, was won by Evelyn Van Der Jagt, winning a Vinomarket magnum of wine.
The Individual Prizes were next, and the runner up, with 38 points overall was the Sala Group Chairman, Ian Radford, who very kindly donated his La Sala vouchers and wine to The Elena Gaite Foundation.
The Individual Winner on the day was Rosie Karo, with 39 points and taking home the top individual prize of the day.

In 2nd place was Bon Vivant, with 91 points overall, who managed to beat Team Toys on a countback.
And the winning team on the day was Team Ice Slicers! Scoring 92 points overall.
It wouldn’t be right to not host the famous Wooden Spoon prize, and this month it was
Barry Stonhill, with 13 points overall. As a Sala Golf regular, we are sure Barry will be back at our next event to show what he is made of!
A huge thank you to all the Sala Golfers, Los Flamingos, The Elena Gaite Foundation and all of our dedicated sponsors for another incredible day of golf.
