Favorable wind for the 5th Greek Maritime Golf Event in the PeloponneseGreek shipping actively supported “Together for Children”

Athens, June 11, 2019 – The 5th Greek Maritime Golf Event, the golf tournament of the shipping community, was held from June 8-9, 2019 with absolute success at Costa Navarino, presenting two golf games, parallel events and many surprises for the Greek and global shipping industry.

“Greek Maritime Golf Event” teams, consisted of distinguished executives of the Greek shipping community (four people in each team), enjoyed the game and the summer conditions at the two signature 18-hole courses The Dunes Course and The Bay Course among century-old olive trees overlooking the Ionian Sea and the historic bay of Navarino.

Golf action began on Saturday, June 8, in the morning, with participants competing on both team and individual levels in a shotgun scramble at The Dunes Course.

For those not taking part in the golf tournament, the event had enriched its program with parallel activities. Specifically, non-golfers had the opportunity to attend the golf clinic and take part in the putting competition at The Dunes Course. Respectively, lovers of nature and history joined the guided tour at the beautiful Venetian fortress of Niokastro in Pylos.

The day concluded with a cocktail, the gala dinner and award ceremony hosted by basketball legend Joe Arlauckas.

The shipping community “embraced” the event’s good cause and actively supported the union “Mazi gia to Paidi” (“Together for Children”) in two ways: a) During the shotgun scramble that was held, players participating in the tournament offered the amount they wish by buying up extra efforts at the 10 hole of The Dunes Course. b) At the award ceremony participants had the opportunity to contribute directly the amount they wished.

The total amount collected by the event and donated to the union of non-profit NGOs “Mazi gia to Paidi” reached 6,325 euros.
