Lots of fun at the Annual St. Patrick’s Day Tournament

Over 80 players enjoyed Tuesday, the 17th March 2015, Marbella Golf Country Club’s Annual St. Patrick’s Day Tournament. They all had great time with Texas Scramble tournament and the already traditional Irish / American barbeque with free Guinness on tap. “Stelvis” was in charge of the entertainment after the lunch with many members dancing the afternoon away. The ice on the cake of the event was the chipping contest that took place from the large terrace towards the 18th hole with the possibility to win a Ping Cadence Putter sponsored by Marbella Golf Academy. Gary Brown was the happy man to win this contest, organized by our Head Golf Pro Monty Bordelon, chipping the ball 2 feet from the pin.

This year’s tournament was organized together with Sala Group Golf, who sponsored a price for the best dressed player. Patrick Jones had the honor to win the Ecco Golf bag. We would also like to thank the other sponsors that participated in the event; The Gecko Pro Tour, Bluewater Marbella and My Lawyer in Spain.
