The Lions Club of La Cala de Mijas are getting ready to host their annual Captain’s Day Tournament on Thursday, August 31 at El Chaparral Golf Club in Mijas.

About the event

The Lions’ Captain’s Day Tournament is a charity fundraiser that aims to support the Lions‘ service projects and charity work in Mijas and beyond.

The contest will follow the ‘Individual Stableford’ format, with two categories for players to choose from. The first category is for players with a handicap of 0.0 to 15.8, while the second category is for those with a handicap of 15.9 to 36.

The tournament will begin with a shotgun start at 9am, followed by a day of exciting fundraising activities, including a raffle, prize draw, and auction.

Players will be treated to a full day of welcome catering and lunch with wine, and the top three players in each category will receive prizes. Adding to the fun will be a ‘closest to the pin’ prize for both ladies and men, as well as a longest drive prize for both categories.

Entry costs

Entry to the Lions’ golf tournament costs €70 for non-members of El Chaparral Golf Club, while members can participate for €40. Junior players can also join in the fun for €40, which includes lunch, green fees, and a shared buggy throughout the tournament.
