A warm thank you for 2015
Thank you to all involved in the 27th Pinmar Golf for your great support and participation. Since last year's change to just two days of golf was so well received, we naturally decided to stick with it this year, although with additional marshals in order to help everyone get round on time.
It certainly seemed to work well and it again produced a fantastic response. We have had dozens of positive emails which make all the effort very worthwhile.
As last year we had 83 teams and collectively all of you, along with your friends and guests and our wonderful sponsors and hard-working volunteers, raised a magnificent figure of Euros 65.000 for the Pinmar Golf Charity Fund which takes our total over our 27 years to Euros 765,000.
The hire of buggies, golf clubs and trolleys, along with the bars on the course and the terrace and the lunch in the clubhouse, helped to raise nearly 25k over the two days.
The brilliant teams selling raffle over all three days raised a very impressive 16k. Huge thanks to you all for buying so many tickets and also to everyone who bid so generously in the silent and live auctions and to Jotun for a very generous donation of Euros 10,000. And also to Alan Dale of Burgess and the International Yacht Brokers Charity Golfers Association who once again very kindly decided to add their total of Euros 5,000 to our fund.
As always the funds will be shared across a wide range of causes both here and abroad including: Joves Navegants, Handisports, Tyume Valley Schools, Allen Graham 4 Kidz, Sail 4 Cancer, Servo-on and many more.
A very big thank you to our still photographers, Dave Page, Simon Williams, Susan Barwood, Zuzana Nanova, Toni Dominguez, Lilian Wurm and Vicky Verity for her help with the team photos. Also to our video photographers Alejandro Dioscorides, of Yachts XL and Paul Miller of Palma Multimedia. The scores are already on the website (www.pinmargolf.es) and we will be adding more to it soon. However, I have around 4,000 digital photos to edit so please bear with me!
So thank you again to all our golfers, guests, organizers and volunteers for your continued support and generosity and to all our Birdie, Eagle, Albatross and Condor sponsors without whom the Pinmar Golf would simply not exist.
