The magnificent Zaudín Golf Club in Tomares and Bormujos municipalities, not far from Sevilla capital city, hosted a resoundingly successful final qualifying leg of the Andalucía Golf Challenge-Destination Dominican Republic Ocean’s 4 Bahía Príncipe Circuit.
This year’s popular open amateur Circuit, celebrating its 10th anniversary, is being played at a total of 16 superb courses – including several of Spain’s most renowned. It offers (as the main prizes) five week-long trips to the Dominican Republic including flights, transfers, all-inclusive five-star hotel accommodation and golf at three of the Caribbean’s finest courses: Ocean’s 4, Teeth of the Dog and Punta Espada.
This was the first time Zaudín Golf Club had taken part in the Circuit organised by Andalucía Tolf/España Golf. On this occasion, the weather was not at its most accommodating, with rain falling until 12 noon. Nevertheless, the participants enjoyed playing on a superb course designed by legendary South African Gary Player (winner of nine majors including three US Masters and three British Opens) – his most recent project completed in Spain.
Porsche Sevilla was present at the tournament as co-sponsor, presenting an exhibition of cars at the course and offering all players a gift memento.
Apart from prizes for each tournament (DO Somontano wines, sports equipment from Holiday Golf, etc.), the top three finishers in each category plus the scratch winner obtain places in the circuit’s grand finale (Atalaya Old, 21 November), with the chance of securing one of the five Dominican Republic holidays. A gifts raffle was also held at the tournament conclusion.
The top three players in category one were (in order) Raúl Marfil Cuevas (40 points), Jesús C. Regalado Corisco (37) and Antonio Pérez Acevedo (36)
Leading the way in category two, with 42 points, was Manuel José García López Quedó, followed by Luis Lázaro Cuesta (39) and Álvaro Pérez Temprano (also 39).
The scratch winner was Eduardo Martínez-Bone Cabello with 35 points. As for the special prizes, closest to the pin was won by Antonio Pérez Acevedo, and longest drive went to Isabel Esteban Garmendia and Antonio Pérez Acevedo.
