Paul Lawrie heads charity day at Son Gual

Son Gual Pic

Former Open champion Paul Lawrie and Sky Sports presenter Kirsty Gallacher head a list of more than 300 golfers taking part in the annual Pinmar Golf charity event at Mallorca's No.1 golf destination, Son Gual.

Well established as one of the island's biggest charity events - and a highlight of the superyacht industry's social calendar - the Pinmar Golf has raised almost €850,000 for worthy causes in its 28 previous outings.

The 29th edition, from October 19-21, is the first to be attended by Lawrie in his new role as golf ambassador for Pinmar, the global industry leader for yacht painting services.

"I got to know Remy [Millott, chief executive of Pinmar's parent company GYG plc] through my former manager who introduced us. Remy told me they were looking for someone to come and host the golf tournament, run a clinic, have a round with some guests, do a Q&A and award prizes.

"We really got along, so the deal easily came together. I've now got the Pinmar logo on the right side of my cap and am looking forward to the golf at Son Gual as everyone I’ve spoken to raves about it.”

Millott added: “Whilst preserving the values of friendship, charity and enjoyment that serve the event so well each year, this time we have introduced several carefully considered venue changes, an all-new theatrical performance from international show director Martyn Smith, and the presence of fresh high-profile celebrity ambassadors in the shape of Paul and Kirsty - alongside Faithless' Sister Bliss for the After Party.

"Add 320 amateur golfers competing in 80 teams and 1,000 VIP guests to the mix and we have an entertainment-packed weekend. The Pinmar Golf 2017 is sure to be the best yet."

Last year's event raised more than €81,000 and organisers are looking to better that total this year. In a twist, the winners of the Pinmar Golf decide where half of the charity money goes, so each team is playing for a substantial sum.

The par-70 Son Gual includes several outstanding, memorable holes, including a closing hole described by one reviewer as a ‘serious contender for Europe's best par-5 and Spain's most dramatic 18th’, plus one of the best collections of par-3 holes in Spain.
