The traditional annual memorial pro-am in honour of Felipe Pérez (who died in 2009), which this year celebrates its seventh edition, is a must-play event for golfers during the Costa del Sol summer.
Last year’s edition was held on 10 and 11 August. Participants played a two best-ball pro-am format, with two shotgun starts each day, Friday and Saturday, at 9am and 3.30pm; and a total attendance of 92 teams (368 players).
Prizes were awarded for the best professional results: €3,000, €2,000, €1,000 and €500, respectively.
Everybody enjoyed a pleasant and entertaining atmosphere during the prize-giving at Mijas Golf’s restaurant terrace, culminating in one of the best raffles so far at Mijas Golf: one unlimited yearly membership at Mijas Golf for 2019, fabulous dinners at local restaurants, suite stays at great hotels, a large number of green fees to play at some of the Coast’s top golf courses, golf equipment from leading brands, and much more.
A hugely appreciative Mijas Golf director Lorenzo Pérez dedicated a part of his speech to praising the enormous generosity and loyalty of sponsors and collaborators, who had made such a fabulous prize-giving ceremony and raffle possible.
Last year’s pro-am also raised €3,750 for charity, which was donated to the Golf Solidarios association.
Sponsors: Riversa Toro, Juma, San Miguel and Sistemas de Seguridad Grupo 8 x 8.
