Atalaya Golf & Country Club proudly hosted a leg of the 2019 Heineken Circuito Mediterráneo on Saturday, the 30th of November. The 18-hole Pairs Better Ball Stableford event was held on the club’s classic Old Course.
The tournament is open to all federated golfers 18 years of age and older with handicaps of 26.4 and better for the men and 36 and better for the ladies. A Scratch Division is also offered.
The Heineken circuit travels throughout the east of Spain from north to south, stopping at the finest of courses each area has to offer. At the end of the series, all of the winning pairs from the tournament’s various stops will compete in the Grand Final and the 2019 Circuito Mediterráneo champions will be crowned.
Throughout the circuit, five Euros of every participant’s green fee is donated to the Luchadores AVA Fundación, a non-profit organisation “…born to give hope to all of those people with neurological disorders and their families through comprehensive care.” At Atalaya a total of €540.00 was collected in support of this very worthy foundation.
Before the start of the competition all players received a “welcome pack”, and after play everyone gathered at the newly refurbished Ventanas de Atalaya restaurant for a cocktail. Some 30 prizes were raffled off to tournament participants in addition to the normal awards provided to the day’s winning pairs. The ladies and gentlemen who captured “longest drives” and “closest to the pin” were also honoured.
