Sala Golf members joyfully returned to the enchanting greens of Los Flamingos, transforming the last event of 2023 into a festive Christmas special. Beneath the winter sun of mid-December, the Los Flamingos course shimmered in its beautiful condition. As teams gathered, excitement filled the air, with the top three teams neck-and-neck, creating a spirited atmosphere for the day ahead. The sight of Sala Golf members wearing festive Christmas jumpers and hats created an extra layer of festive feels to the occasion, making it a truly memorable event.
This magical day wouldn’t have been possible without the generous support of our sponsors, including La Sala Homes’ Gin and Tonic Bar, Vinomarket, and Fluent Finance Abroad. A heartfelt thank you also goes to our cherished charity partner, the Elena Gaite Foundation.
After a day filled with fantastic golf, Sala Golfers reconvened at La Sala Puerto Banus for an extraordinary sit-down Christmas dinner and free-flowing drinks. Intense bidding wars for amazing prizes, contributing to the success of the raffle, with every penny raised going directly to the incredible charities involved. Appreciation was shown by Assumpta, who runs the Cudeca Foundation who shared heartfelt words.
