October 9th 2019: The Balaia Charity Golf Classic

On October 9th 2019, Balaia Golf opened its doors to welcome everybody for the 5th Edition of the Balaia Charity Golf Classic! The competition prizes were sponsored by Balaia Golf Village property owners Julia and Colin Robinson! All the money raised on this event, and also on the Charity Pot throughout the year, will be donated to a local Algarvian Institution!

And the prize for the Best Net Overall player of this year, the Winner of the Balaia Charity Golf Classic 2019, was awarded to property owner Clark Wilson! Clark played with a handicap 13 and scored 24 points! Outstanding performance! Congratulations!!

Clark’s star shone bright on the Charity Classic Event, taking with him almost all the prizes of the Tournament!! Apart from the Big Charity prize, Clark won the Nearest to the Pin and also the money for the Birdie Chance prize, which he kindly donated to the Charity Pot! Round of applause to Mister Clark Wilson!!

Our friend Kevin McCormick joined the Charity Classic, playing a beautiful round of 9, also with a score of 24 points, losing to Clark on the tiebreak on the last 6 holes, but he did manage to win the Tournament’s Best Gross Overall prize with a score of 15 points!! Balaia Golf Village General Manager Rui Justo delivered a fine bottle of Martell VS Cognac to Kevin as prize!

A few months ago Balaia Golf was honoured to welcome the English National Rugby Team, paying us a visit and playing a round of golf at our Course. As a courtesy, all the England Rugby superstars signed a Balaia Golf Jersey, that is being put for auction. The total amount to be raised will be added to the Charity Money Pot, and will be donated to a local Institution in need. If you want the opportunity to be the proud owner of this autographed Jersey, you can buy tickets, (5 euro per ticket) and in a couple of weeks there will be a raffle to award this item to the ticket with the lucky number! For more information, please contact the Balaia Golf Shop.

By the end of the Charity Golf Classic Tournament, the ClubHouse terrace was alive with joy with all our Balaia Members and friends!

The Competition went on smoothly, all golfers were satisfied with their performance on the fairways (well, some more than others 😀 ), but the true spirit of friendship was always present! What a joy!

We were very pleased to see Robert Sykes and Maureen joining us for the fun! And on the other side of the terrace we had our cowboy golfer Phil Lawrence showing us what style is all about! Smokin! 🔥🔥🔥
