Play Golf in Mallorca for Charity

Port Fairline in Cala d'Or, Mallorca, are looking for teams to participate in a charity golf tournament at the Vall d'Or Club on Saturday 6 October.

Port Fairline Spain, the Mallorca-based leg of the Port Fairline dealer network, are hosting the fourth annual charity golf tournament at a local golf course on October 6. The tournament will raise money for Huddersfield-based charity Martin House, a hospice for terminally ill children and young adults. Currently, 45 of the 60 available golf places have been taken, leaving room for a few more teams to join the tournament, which takes the form of a ‘Texas Scramble’. Cost of entry is ?134 per player, which includes the green fee, buggy and dinner on Friday 5 October. Pam Op Den Brouw of Port Fairline Spain has arranged good rates at the nearby 5-star Hotel Melia Cala d’Or (?159 for a junior suite). A taxi from the airport to Cala d’Or will cost approx. ?50.

The charity was proposed by a British Fairline owner, who along with six staff from Martin House and 15 other volunteers are trekking in the Himalayas to raise further funds for the hospice. The group will leave the UK on 25 October and intend to hike for ten days at altitudes up to 13,500ft, raising a minimum £1500 each.

Proceeds from the golf tournament, which has been very popular in previous years, will help to supoort the new teenage unit at Martin House, which was opened on 25th June 2002. The unit is devoted to providing full time care for teenagers and young adults who suffer from a terminal illness. Last year, Martin House was adopted by players from Leeds United Football Club as their charity for the 2001/02 football season and they raised £50,000 towards the new building. HRH The Duchess of Kent and the Archbishop of York are among the charity’s patrons.

The golf precedes the Port Fairline Ibiza Cruise, which takes place from 7-12 October.
