A brilliant event raising money for The Global Gift Foundation, Cudeca Foundation and The Marie Keating Foundation.
The day started at 08.00 hrs in the Estepona Golf clubhouse with reception, a light breakfast and fresh fruit smoothies accompanied by our celebrity guests Ronan Keating, Stephen Hunt and James Nesbitt. James had flown in from shooting the latest episodes of Cold Feet and was welcomed by the staff at Estepona unwrapping his brand new set of Callaway rental clubs now available at the club.
A shot gun start commenced at 09.30 hrs with a field of 70 players playing an individual stableford competition whilst driving Estepona’s brand new EZ-GO buggies, a delight for everyone taking part. La Sala kindly sponsored the half way hut cleverly nestled in between the olive trees behind the 11th green so that the field of players could enjoy Champagne, wine and even a gin and tonic twice on the way round!
After the round all the players took to the club’s terrace bar and restaurant for a delicious BBQ (special thanks to Tango Restaurant in Puerto Banus) and drinks whilst the celebrities were being photographed and interviewed by the national and international press. Please take a look at the photos enclosed!
With everyone fed and watered Ronan Keating took to the stage to present this years prizes! Prizes for the event included a Powakaddy tour bag (special thanks to Powakaddy Espana) Nike Golf Shoes and Nike Putters.
1st Prize went to Karen Penfold
2nd Prize went to Andy Eames
3rd Prize went to Andy Pritchard
Other spot prizes included winning a Porsche for the weekend and prizes for beating the Pro on hole 5!
