This year’s Pinmar Golf tournament in Palma de Mallorca, Spain, will be the last, according to sponsor GYG.
“I know it will be a shock to many long-standing fans,” stated Andrew Clemence, group marketing director of GYG, “but it feels like the right time to change things up and explore new experiences with our customers and valued partners.”
The popular yacht industry golf tournament has raised more than €1 million for charity in the 31 years of its existence. The company said it is working on several new ideas going forward, and will hold an alternate event in Mallorca during the same October period in 2020 and beyond.
While GYG CEO Remy Millott said ending the tournament was “a very tough and big decision for us,” he noted that the final edition of the tournament is slated to be the biggest ever. The event will begin at the Son Gual Golf Course in Mallorca on Oct. 17 with two days of competitive golf overseen by Open winner and Pinmar Golf ambassador Paul Lawrie, according to a company statement.
The legendary Friday VIP Party, together with the Saturday Recovery Brunch — this year featuring a Rugby World Cup quarter final game — will return to Puerto Portals. The grand finale will take place at Son Amar with a gala dinner hosted by Awlgrip and compèred by UK sports TV presenter Gabby Logan.
A nostalgic night of high-class entertainment and charitable fundraising celebrating some of the most memorable personalities and acts from the last 31 years will bring the final curtain down.
“We have a fantastic golf weekend lined up, so please get behind this year’s event and give it a great send off,” Millott stated.
