Edmiston at the 2016 Palma Refit Golf Tournament
In November, Edmiston joined Palma Refit as a sponsor of its annual golf tournament at the Santa Ponsa Golf Club, Majorca.
With 42 yacht captains in attendance, along with their spouses and children, the tournament was a true family occasion and a huge success, albeit one with a slight competitive edge.
With end of play cocktails on the club’s terrace, a 16-course dinner and lots of impromptu fun and games there was plenty to enjoy. The golf itself started early, a sign of the seriousness to come, perhaps. However, the mojitos served to players at the 12th hole pointed to a more amiable approach shot. Along the way, the ‘Beat the Pro’ competition at the 7th saw some healthy competition, with Edmiston’s resident sporting all-rounder Tom Lilly the eventual winner.
Away from the course, the evening dinner and charity auction raised over €3000 for two local charities, Café +Humano and Estrellas y Duendes. Both charities provide help and assistance to families living without shelter, food and clothing and provide therapy, education, job re-training and employment search for those facing the risk of social exclusion. Both organizations are extremely grateful for the donations generated from this event.
Representatives from Edmiston’s Charter, Sales, Management, and Crew divisions attended and we very much look forward to joining the fun in 2017.
Based at the STP shipyard, Palma Refit offers a complete scope of refit solutions and project support services.
