Aphrodite Hills Golf - Captain's Day Tournament

Cancer Patient’s Support Group was the theme as Sir David O’ Dowd and Linda O’Neill, Captains at Aphrodite Hills Golf Club, ran their Annual Charity Captains Day on Wednesday 7th of October in aid of PASYKAF Homecare Nurses and Support Services for Cancer Patients in Paphos.
The Captains Day 2015 commenced with perfect blue skies and a golf course in fabulous condition, a full field of 80 golfers set out to compete with each other on the golf course. The competition started with tee times from 10:10 until 12:50. Men played from the white tees and the ladies played from the Blue tees, the format was Individual Stableford.
The Event was organized by the Club’s Captains Sir David and Linda with the assistance of AH Staff, Chryso Iasonos (Golf Membership & Marketing Executive) and Andrew Darker (Director of Golf). Great work was done by both parties in creating a fun and competitive atmosphere throughout the day.
Apart from the Individual Stableford competition there were also many individual prizes, including both straightest and longest drives, nearest the pins and a putting competition. There was also the opportunity to ‘Beat the Pro’, with the Golf Professional Danny Heard on Hole 17 who managed to collect €390 for the Charity Donation. Both Captains sponsored the prize holes making a fun challenge for the members and guests.

In the evening a pre-cocktail reception was held outside the Morpheus Ballroom at the Aphrodite Hills Resort Hotel followed by the Gala Dinner. The Hotel hosted more than 140 members and their guests who all enjoyed the excellent food selection by our F & B Department. By tradition, the Gala Dinner opened with the piping in of the two Captains our ScottishMember James Baxter, playing traditional music on the pipes into the Ballroom.
