A wonderful day accompanied by the best possible summer weather, with hardly any wind and a splendid sun. This, together with the excellent playing conditions that the course presented, made the players enjoy a perfect day of golf.

All the players, after collecting their cards and welcome pack at the clubhouse, headed out onto the course to start their respective games with a shot gun start at 9am.

The I Open Ping Golf Tour was played in the Individual Stableford modality, with two categories by handicap and a special prize for the best classified lady.
