Norway’s Tina Mazarino, the aspiring 18-year-old who recently turned professional, has completed an intensive, five-week training program at Atalaya Golf & Country Club. Tina’s five-week sponsorship at Atalaya included unlimited access to the Club’s pristine practice facilities and two championship golf courses. Atalaya’s Director General Andrés Sanchez provided this sponsorship to Tina in keeping with the club’s policy of assisting talented and aspiring young golfers.

Tina is now in France and ready to play her first tournament as a professional. “I am excited; this is what I have been training for…,” she said.

Tina welcomes the many challenges that come with being a professional golfer and feels that the time she spent at Atalaya during February and March has prepared her most effectively for the 2019 season. “I am more ready than ever,” she said.

Tina trained for many hours every day, seven days a week while at Atalaya and enjoyed the many opportunities that came her way to meet both Atalaya’s members and staff. Ladies’ Captain Kajsa Schmidt organised a round for Tina with several of Atalaya’s skilled lady golfers. “It was real fun,” said Tina.

About her time at Atalaya, Tina commented, “To me it’s nearly indescribable how you all have welcomed me and made me part of your wonderful club. … Atalaya Golf Club must be among the best clubs to be a member of with its two courses and a fantastic club environment.”

Summing up the five weeks she spent at Atalaya Tina said, “It couldn’t have been better!”
