In a fantastic late summer morning, with sun and no wind, 36 golfers were present at the Avila Golf Challenge 2022, which took place at Aroeira Golf Club. Among clients, partners and guests, we had the participation of about 60 people in a clinic organized by the Orizonte Golf Academy. The lunch was hosted by the club restaurant, and the following players were awarded: 1st Net: Manuel Mariano de Carvalho, followed by Pedro Miranda and Paulo Almeida, all with 41 points. In Gross, the winner was Susana Mendes Ribeiro, with 31 points, followed by Nuno Costa Alemão, with 28 points.
The special prizes were won by: Nearest to the Pin, Alberto Correia; Longest Drive, Nuno Costa Alemão. The Tournament was sponsored by Mercedes C. Santos VP, Golden Wealth Management and Royal Caribbean, and supported by Sangria Bacana, Hole 19, Lindt, Cigala, Super Bock, Wine & Golf 4 You, Orlando Henrique Coach and HL Group, who presented the players with several gifts and a fantastic course bar, in the middle of the course.
We are proud to say that this fourth edition of the Avila Golf Challenge event exceeded all expectations. Besides the networking opportunities with the community of customers and partners, we were very pleased to contribute to the dissemination of this sport, and every year there are always two or three customers who start playing golf through the clinic. The support of the Orizonte Group was fundamental for the success of the initiative, especially from the director of the Aroeira Golf Club, Carlos Fonseca, and the coaches that organized the Golf Clinic, Nuno Campino and José Gaspar.
Due to the growing number of players and companies that are joining this initiative, a circuit of 9-hole tournaments is being planned in the Lisbon region, which also aims to promote and publicize the respective courses to the community of foreign golf clients of Avila Spaces.
It is with great enthusiasm that we count on the presence of all of you in this next initiative and, no doubt, in future editions of the Avila Golf Challenge!
