Captains Day

The Cancer Patient’s Support Group in Paphos was the chosen charity, as Tony Raphael, the Captain of Aphrodite Hills Golf Club ran his Annual Charity Captain’s Day on Wednesday 10th of October 2018.

The Captain’s Day 2018 commenced with a field of 96 members and their guests set out to compete each other on the golf course. Apart from the main competition there were also many individual prizes, including both straightest drive and nearest to the pins. Members and their Guests had the opportunity to Beat the Pro on Hole 17 and raised funds for the Charity Group the total amount of €540.

In the evening a Cocktail Reception was held outside at the Clubhouse Terrace followed by a Barbeque Dinner.  The Clubhouse hosted more than 100 members and their guests, who all enjoyed the excellent food selection prepared by our F&B Department. During the dinner a raffle competition was organized by Tony who went around and collected more funds for the charity and some fantastic prizes for the winners. After the dinner, the Director of Golf, Andrew Darker started the Prize Giving Ceremony together with the Captains presenting and handing the prizes to the winners.
