The Danish colours were displayed all over the ancient patio of the Lauro Golf club house to welcome almost a hundred of players gathered together at Lauro Golf in the 23rd issue of the Danish Constitution Day Tournament last Sunday, June the 7th.
This is a very popular competition in this area of Alhaurin de la Torre as it has been held since the opening of the club. It had a shot gun start at 9 o'clock in the morning.
There were four categories established two for non Danish and two for the Danes according to handicap with four prizes each, apart from prizes for the nearest to the pin in all par 3 and prizes for the longest drive in hole 17 for gents and ladies. The competition went fast and smooth, so they arrived on time for the super buffet-lunch organized by the Club House Restaurant "Mama Luchia Golf", which was entertained by the fantastic flamenco show from Alhaurín de la Torre.
The spectacle was a complete success and the dancers received a good response by the audience.
Right after the flamenco show, Mrs Tove Mª Pedersen, President Lauro Golf and organizer of this tournament, was in charge of presenting the prize giving together with the Sponsors Jesper Hertz, Ana Moreno and the Danish ex-Vice consul Annette Saehrtz de Fernández, who also helped handing out the magnificent prizes to the players. The participants were very satisfied with so many and unbeatable gifts.
