The awards in the individual stableford were divided into two categories and there was special prize for the best round, according to handicap.
The winner in the first stableford category was John Graves, followed by Gustavo Renno.
Juan Lopez Saez won first place in second category and Francisco González García, at his home club, took second place.
The scratch award was won by Javier Abellán Berruezo, also on his home turf.
The prizes were presented by Mojácar Councillor for Sports, Ana Garcia, who thanked all the participants for attending this first tournament. She also expressed gratitude to the Marina Golf Club, for the good organization and willingness to host this sporting event. She went on to declare the event a great success and confirmed it would take place at Marina Golf again next year. Players and their families were invited to visit Mojácar for next year’s event and also to enjoy the beaches and the many attractions of the town.
The event closed with an eagerly awaited prize draw of Bridgestone golf equipment for the participating players and a cocktail, which was a perfect end to a relaxing day.
