On Saturday 17th of December Aphrodite Hills Golf hosted the 2011 Marfin Laiki Bank Golf Open.
The day began with breakfast at Aphrodite Hills Golf Clubhouse before all players headed to the Course to start at 9.00am with a shotgun start. A field of 90 Golfers participated and with near perfect weather conditions, we were set for some low scoring.
The players did not disappoint with at least 12 of the field returning scores better than their handicap. The eventual ‘Overall Winner’ was Bernd Gulas with a fantastic 40 stableford points. Kyriacos Michaelides, Director of Wealth Management for Marfin Laiki Bank presented the prizes to all the winners. “It is great to be here and involved with the golf, we hope that Marfin Laiki Bank is able to continue with some presence in golf in the future” said Mr. Michaelides during his welcome speech.
The Men’s Winner was Roberto Piona with 38 points and the Ladies Winner, Teresa Tortora-Piona also scored 38 points; the husband and wife winners showed their surprise and were elated with their win!
The Runners-up for the Men & Ladies were Steve Gargaro (38 points) and Ritta Resch (32 points) respectively. Our Junior Winner was Georgia Shears with a great score of 37 points, just beating 10 year old Nikolas Pitiris on countback who also scored 37 points. All the players had a fantastic day.
Aphrodite Hills once again thanks the Marfin Laiki Bank for their continued support and we look forward to further events in 2012 and beyond.
