Welcome To The Pinmar Golf 2019
The 31st edition of The Pinmar Golf is fast approaching!
As we start work on the planning and organising of the 31st Pinmar Golf Tournament our passion remains just as strong as it was when we started way back in 1989. Our objectives haven’t changed; we still want to bring the superyacht community together at the end of the summer season for a few days of sport, entertainment, informal networking and charitable fund raising.
Over the last 30 years, Pinmar as a company has evolved from a local yacht painting company to become part of a global public company, likewise The Pinmar Golf has changed and developed from a small local tournament in to a much larger international industry event. During this time, we have changed courses and venues a number of times, as well as making adjustments to the format to keep it fresh. However, we have always been mindful of the need to preserve the underlying ethos of the event, the collective, the coming together to socialise and do some good for the community in which we all live and work.
In the same way that we needed the support of our partners and industry colleagues to organise the first event we are dependent upon the support of our customers, partners and industry colleagues to deliver an event of the size and quality of The Pinmar Golf 2019.
This year's tournament, which takes place 17-19 October, promises to be more spectacular than ever. We will once again be hosted by Golf Son Gual, our 10th year at this spectacular location, which provides a championship course and first-class facilities for golfers and non-golfers alike. 75 teams of competitive golfers will play a Texas Scramble over four sessions across two days, battling it out for prizes such as best yacht team, best industry team, and individual prizes such as longest drive and nearest-the-pin.
We are delighted to welcome back golfing legend and our Pinmar Golf Ambassador, Paul Lawrie OBE, who will join us on the course offering practical advice to passing players. Our professional tournament director and team of marshals will ensure the golf days run smoothly and everybody gets around in good time - weather permitting! Golf players can enjoy complimentary transport to and from their hotel, a top quality complimentary goodie bag and a complimentary breakfast. We're sure they will also enjoy the four on-course bars spread throughout the 18 holes! Non-golfers can also take advantage of the beautiful surroundings, relaxing on the expansive terrace with full bar service and DJ playing.
The popular 'Social Ticket' will return this year for those non-regular golfers who want to participate in some light-hearted golf and enjoy the social atmosphere of the clubhouse. The putting competition and driving range clinic included in this package were a real success last year, giving social players the opportunity to brush up on their putting and swing techniques, with the pros on hand to offer some handy coaching tips and advice. The social players can enjoy the same two days of networking, fun parties and the spectacular black-tie Gala Dinner and show.
The Friday Night VIP Party is a legendary industry party and social event with flowing drinks and live music and is the perfect way to cap off two days of golf. We return to Cappuccino in Puerto Portals for more high class cocktails and tapas with live entertainment. The Saturday morning 'Recovery' Brunch will take on a rugby theme this year as a Quarter Final of the Rugby World Cup will be hosted by top sports presenter Gabby Logan. It's a cool opportunity for superyacht captains to socialise with the industry elite and enjoy an English style brunch at the infamous Wellies restaurant in Puerto Portals. Bloody Mary's will be available for those who need them!
The weekend culminates with the black-tie extravaganza at the exclusive "Son Amar" estate, where the traditional Mallorquin ‘finca’ provides a welcoming terrace for the pre-dinner drinks and canapés, a covered fountain area for the prize-giving ceremony and a purpose-built dinner theatre. With an incredible live show, plus Paul Lawrie and British TV presenter Gabby Logan expertly hosting the proceedings, it will be another memorable evening of entertainment topped off by the after party well into the early hours. Transport (and hangovers) are provided.
As well as the huge effort from the Pinmar organising team, the success of The Pinmar Golf relies on the generous backing of its sponsors, many of whom have been supporting the event since its inception 30 years ago. Over 75 different companies from all sectors of the superyacht industry support the tournament each year in a host of different ways and are integral to the large amount of money raised each year.
Of course, the entire reason behind this event is the fundraising, and the 2018 event raised a magnificent figure of €92,065 for the Pinmar Golf Charity Fund which pushed the total beyond the €1million mark to €1,036,480. It was a very special way to celebrate our 30th year, and we look to build on that incredible total in 2019 with all your support.

Prize-giving, Gala Dinner & After Party at Son Amar
The Awlgrip 'black-tie' Prize-giving Gala Dinner and after-party will return to the beautiful Son Amar estate just outside Palma.
This spectacular finale to the three-day event hosts over 700 guests, featuring aperitifs and canapes on the Royal Terrace, the Prize-giving ceremony hosted by Gabby Logan, and a mouth-watering three course dinner prepared by the executive chef before the Son Amar cast delights the crowd with selected acts from their legendary shows.
To round off the evening the dinner-theatre seamlessly turns into a nightclub, with a fabulous DJ line-up and the dance floor rocking to a soundtrack of the eighties, nineties and noughties classics.
For those looking for a quieter retreat we open the chill-out lounge just outside the main room, where guests can sit back and relax with friends and colleagues.
