The 7th Riviera Yacht Support Golf Bonanza held last Friday at the Grande Bastide Golf Course was our biggest and best Golf Bonanza yet! 

We would like to extend our thanks and appreciation to everyone who attended and we were fortunate to see the sunshine this year after the soggy but fun day last year.

This year’s event was a resounding success with 100 teeing off for golf, and 160 in total for the sit-down lunch and we’re pleased to see such overwhelming interest already in next year’s event.

We were thrilled to have Dockwalk as our official Media Partner (keep an eye out for the event write-up in the December edition of Dockwalk magazine) and to see Monaco Marine return as a Main (Championship) Sponsor.  

Our Platinum Sponsor, CBAY, ensured everyone was treated to a delicious three-course lunch, and our Gold Sponsor, Riviera Gourmet, sponsored the Hole-in-One challenge that sadly was not conquered leaving the gleaming Mercedes SLC to remain a dream for next year.

The prize giving was well received with Best Team awarded to Rooster’s Revenge, Best Gents prize going to James Hennigar from M/Y Kingdom 5KR, and Best Ladies prize was awarded to Gilly Theed.  

The Best Gross Score on the day was claimed by Terry Allen, Longest Drive (Gents) went to Rory in the Colgans bunch and Longest Drive (Ladies) was picked up by Anna Lindell.   Best Dressed Team was handed out to the diverse bunch of costumes and crew represented by M/Y Kingdom 5KR.  

Twenty-eight golfers beat the Pro Jéremie Felenc and 20 managed to Hit the Floating Green – well done, we hope you enjoy your bottles of rosé courtesy of Riviera Wine.

Prize winners were treated to some fantastic goodies including two Club Class tickets and a weekend at a luxury hotel in London thanks to British Airways and Rinck Griffin Travel, paragliding vouchers from Monaco Marine, dinner vouchers kindly sponsored by Dockwalk, CBAY and DolphinWear, a hair and beauty voucher from HEM/Cathelco, Golf Bags from Hill Robinson, Double Magnums of Rosé from Elite and PADI Open Water Courses donated by Diamond Diving.

Every one of our Sponsors was appreciated and we had great feedback from So-sij’s lovely English breakfast to Wild Group International’s fun bar and the classy polo shirts from Dolphin Wear.

Next year, we will be implementing improvements to the course marshalls as we understand it was a long day for some of you!

Until next year!
