What a fantastic day we had! 98 ladies mainly dressed in pink, playing golf in the 5th Pink Ladies Day at Silves.
The SDM 'PLD guys' did a superb job of looking after the registrations, cards, selling brooches and Mulligans. Not to mention setting up the course with pink tee markers and flags. They happily served us with fizz, water and wraps. Certainly made it a special day to remember.
The event has raised around 4,000€ for the Algarvean Oncology Association, fantastic! This will help fund the mobile breast screening unit and hopefully save Ladies lives.
Each lady received an AOA badge and a 10€ discount card for Miss Designer Golf.
There were 6 pairs that scored 43 points! Count back had to go to back 9 and then back 6. Thank you to Keith Scott and Chris Zismides for collating the results.
