Welcome to The Pinmar Golf 2018
A milestone 30th edition of The Pinmar Golf will soon be upon us. We are delighted to announce the launch of the 30th anniversary of The Pinmar Golf Tournament which will take place in Mallorca from the 18th to 20th of October.
Pinmar’s Annual Yachtsman’s Golf Tournament was first held in 1989 with 19 teams of four enjoying a morning round of golf followed by a prizegiving lunch. 29 years later, “The Pinmar” is still played every October in Mallorca attracting around 350 golfers and 800 guests to the Prize-giving Gala Dinner.
With an international audience of yacht captains, yacht brokers, management companies, senior shipyard executives and representatives from the superyacht service industries, it offers an excellent opportunity for corporate hospitality and entertainment for golfers and non-golfers alike.
The 2018 event will take place at Golf Son Gual with the exclusive Friday Night VIP Party at the prestigious Cappuccino in Puerto Portals and the well received Jotun Recovery Brunch returning this year, hosted at the iconic restaurant Wellies. Building on the success of last year, the 'Black Tie' Awlgrip Prize-giving Gala Dinner and After Party will be returning to the incredible Son Amar estate. We are delighted to welcome as Master of Ceremonies British TV presenter and former Welsh international gymnast, Gabby Logan, who will be joined on presenting duties by our Pinmar Golf Ambassador Paul Lawrie OBE.
In response to the excellent feedback from last year’s event we aim to make a few small changes to improve the golf experience and increase the social programme for non-golfers. Our aim is to slightly reduce the number of golf teams and encourage the people who are not regular golfers to participate in the more light-hearted driving range and putting green competitions as well as enjoying the social ambience of the clubhouse terrace. This year’s “Social Player” package will include a ticket to the famous “Friday Night Party” as well as the Saturday Gala Evening & After Party.
Even with the heroic efforts of all the organising team, the quality of the event would still be impossible to achieve without the generous backing of our sponsors. Over 100 different companies support the tournament each year in a host of different ways, and many of them have been with us for most of the last 30 years. Our sponsors, who include leading shipyards, yacht brokers, insurance brokers and management companies as well as refit, repair, service and supply companies, come from all sectors of the superyacht industry.
The 2017 event had 344 players and collectively all of you, along with your friends and guests and our wonderful sponsors and hard-working volunteers, raised a magnificent figure of €101,315 for the Pinmar Golf Charity Fund which smashed our record and takes our total over our 29 years to €944,415. This tee's us up perfectly to break through the one million euro mark at our special 30th year celebration.

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 outside Palma for our 30th anniversary celebrations. A traditional Mallorquin “finca” which includes a purpose built dinner theatre with state-of-the-art facilities, a welcoming terrace for the pre–dinner drinks and canapés, and a covered fountain area for the prize-giving ceremony.
With a new show befitting the 30th anniversary and an executive chef designing a special menu, plus Gabby and Paul hosting the proceedings, it is sure to be an exciting and memorable evening of entertainment.
Pinmar's parent company GYG has also signed a major partnership agreement with the UK-registered charity Blue Marine Foundation in order to demonstrate its ongoing commitment to protecting the world’s oceans. BLUE will have a platform at The Pinmar Golf 2018 Gala Dinner to educate and inspire the 750 plus guests which we hope will spark a movement for change within the marine industry.
The spectacular finale to the evening will be the seamless transition from dinner-theatre to nightclub with our International DJs keeping the entire audience on their feet (and the tables), while a jazz chill-out lounge just outside the main theatre will provide the perfect flipside to the strobing lasers and pulsing beats. Return transport will run until 6am to catch the last revellers headed homewards.
