Sunshine for A.R.C.H. at Marbella Golf


November sunshine brought out over 50 players for the ARCH Golf Tournament on Friday the 11th November 2016, as they fought for first, second and third team prizes in a Texas Scramble format. An excellent 3-course lunch was served followed by the prize giving and an auction and raffle to raise money for the Andalucian Rescue Centre for Horses, Donkeys and Mules as they embark on their move to new premises.

The winning team was Brendan and Bernie McDonald, John McNamara and Charlie Lynch with 63 gross and 55.2 net points. Tom Richardson, Jess Meakin, Steve Boyle and Frank Sadler came second with 63 gross and 57.0 net points. The third team was Jim Robertson, Paul Dunford, Adam Ramsey and Keith Tyler with 61 gross and 57.6 net points.

The prizes for the nearest to pin went to Audrey Gibson in ladies on the third hole and Jim Robertson in gents on hole 11.

Our thanks go to the following people and companies who sponsored holes: The Beach House, Anthony’s Diamonds, PP International, Combitrans, Avelon Printing, mybestbuysavings, and member John Daniels. Thanks also to El Gaucho de Banús Restaurant, Noelia Thames, Birdie Vinos and Hair by Jamie Males for raffle prizes.

ARCH would like to say a big thank you to all who turned out to support the event and to the staff of Marbella Golf for their hard work. The success of the day will help ARCH to continue their very important work of rescuing; rehabilitating and re-homing abused and abandoned horses, donkeys and mules.
