Last Saturday, April 3, the Nordic Golfers Challenge Tournament was held at the Chaparral Golf Club, located in Mijas Costa, The tournament and the day were a success, thanks to a large participation of players, a well-planned organization and the collaboration of the sponsors and collaborators of the tournament; Nordic Golfers as main sponsor and partner companies; Vikings Minimarket, Energy Nordic, Mojo Estates, Flexnet, TIBI Concierge, Your Homestyling, Ritto’s Sportsbar, Designa Kitchen and Art by Bettina.
The weather of the day was spectacular, and more than 100 participating players enjoyed a sunny spring day without wind in this Individual Stableford competition. The players, after collecting their scorecards, received a welcome pack before heading out onto the course to compete for a spot among the top 9 positions with prize awards, in a mixed category.
The Chaparral technical golf course, designed by Pepe Gancedo, demanded the best game from each player to achieve a winning position.
