Quinta da Ria organizes the 4th Golf Marathon for solidarity cause
There were 57 players present at the 4th Golf Marathon organized by Quinta da Ria last sunday, July 26th. The initiative has already followers from the previous editions and the players have different nationalities. For those who signed up for the challenge was not only did important the pleasure of playing golf but surely the fact that the event would contribute once again for a solidarity cause. An amount of approximately 500€ was raised as a contribution for the Caritas of São Brás de Alportel to acquire a new transport van for various purposes.
This stableford competition started in the morning at Quinta de Cima, and after the first 18 holes the clubehouse restaurant was ready to serve lunch while the players took their time to to recover energy and catch their breath for the final turn at Quinta da Ria. At the end of 36 holes thew adventurers of the 4th Quinta da Ria Golf Marathon were greeted a mix of Sangrias and different tapas, and this second time of socialization served to exchange views about performances and for the prize giving.
A Sunday that was expected with high temperatures proved that the desire to play golf does not bend to weather conditions. For the number of players who responded to the challenge also contributed the range of prizes, which consisted of vouchers with generous amounts for the winners to use at the pro-shop, green fees for both courses, and the most appealing prize of all, a brand new Ford Focus for who was lucky enough to make a Hole In One on hole 5 at Quinta da Ria.
Unfortunately for the participants at the end of the marathon no one was able to go home behind the wheel of the most wanted prize.
At the end of the event the commitment was to bring back this initiative in 2016, and a well deserved vote of appreciation to the partners who sponsored the prizes, Verdeland - Sociedade de Mediação Imobiliária, Lda. and Roteiro de Simetrias, Unipessoal.
