Sala Golf at La Quinta Golf

Sala Golfers make an impression at La Quinta Golf this February.

Last Saturday, the Sala Golfers took on the incredible La Quinta for another fantastic day of competitive golf. Despite rain being forecast, the weather gods were looking over us with clear skies, although it was a little cold and windy!

The golfers were welcomed by the Sala Golf Team with sandwiches and a selection of Sala Golf merchandise, before they made their way off to their tees for a shotgun start. Our terrific sponsors were there to support, with International Marbella supplying golfers with their delicious sausage rolls, Vinomarket supplying the finest wines for the Individual and Team prizes and of course Martin Jorgensen from ONE Residencies, playing and supporting the competition.

After completing the course, the golfers made their way back to La Sala for the prize giving and as if by magic, as soon as they stepped inside the warmth of the stylish restaurant, the rain started pouring!

The Closest to the Pin (Par 3) was won by Ian Radford with The Closest to the Pin approach shot (Par 4) won by Mike Murphy.

The Longest Drive was won by The Incredible Hulk, A.K.A. Joseph Crowley, who managed to smash his drive down the fairway to claim his magnum of wine!

The Individual Prizes were next, with the runner up Oliver East scoring 40 points overall. The Individual Winner on the day was Paul O´Grady, also scoring 40 points and winning on a countback.

The third place team for La Quinta was Team Par-Tee, with a very impressive 86 points overall!

Second place was claimed by the Irish team Prohibition, with 87 points overall.

And the winning team on the day was The Baltics! led by John Cooper to victory and scoring a huge 89 points on the day. Very impressive considering the windy conditions.

Unfortunately someone has to take home the famous Wooden Spoon prize, and this month it was Rob Kennis, with 13 points overall. We are sure Rob will fight back next month and be up near the top!

Our Sala Golf competitions are committed to supporting The Elena Gaite Foundation, and aim to raise substantial funds through the charity auction and raffle at each and every event. A huge thank you to all the Foundation team as well as the golfers who show continual support for this special cause.

A big thank you also goes to Vinomarket for sponsoring all Individual and Team prizes.

The next Sala Golf Event is set to take place at Almenara Golf Course in Sotogrande on the 19th March. Please reach out to the Sala Golf team if you would like to join.
