The manager of the Ifach Golf Club, Juan Moragues took to the floor to thank the different administrations for the continual sponsorship of this event that every year is gaining in popularity and importance among the golfers on the Costa Blanca.
For a novelty this year and to take place within the event on Saturday 15th September, those interested will be able to participate for free and with prior registration at a golf clinic which will be run by our golf professional, Kiko Marqués which will cover the initiation of golf, both the theory and the practical, ranging in all different levels.
At Ifach Golf Club we continue to aspire to make this sport inclusive for all and as a result of this, we offer free golf baptisms, which have been agreed upon and approved by the neighbouring town halls so that they can offer golf in their municipal sports schools and various activities in collaboration with the tourism departments.
Remember that the name given to this tournament is due to three characteristics shared by the three municipal villages which all belong to the Marina Alta, and are all surrounded by the Mediterranean Sea and so have the same visual reference – the Peñon de Ifach, symbol of the Costa Blanca, hence “La Marina de Ifach”.
The tournament will be held on Sunday, September 16th at the Ifach Golf Club, in Stableford format, with two categories for the men and one for the ladies.
The registration period ends on September 12th at 8:00 pm and registration can be done by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone on 96 649 7114.
Economical prices have been established to encourage participation which will be; 26 € for visitors and 15 € for members. Depending on the number of entrants, one or two matches will be arranged.
Each participant with a greenfee will be given a welcome pack ( complete with promotional golf material) and there will be prizes and a trophy awarded to the winners of each of the categories ( two for the men and one for the ladies).
There will also be a prize for the ball closest to the pin and the longest drive, as well as prizes for the winner of scratch. At close of play, proceedings will then begin with the prize giving where a cocktail will also be offered to all the attendees.
