Octoberfest a golf fiesta by the sea!

By Plinio Rivero

This past weekend, the traditional Octoberfest golf tournament took place at the Peninsula course of Mayan Palace in Puerto Peñasco. The event was organized by AGA (Arizona Golf Association) represented by Ed Gowan, Lorraine Gowane and Brian Foster, along with the host club Peninsula and a tremendous team led by Peninsula Golf Director Luis Antonio Torres.

92 golfers participated in this year’s Octoberfest, the majority of whom came from Arizona. There were also a number of local Puerto Peñasco golfers on hand. In this atmosphere of camaraderie, everyone enthusiastically took part in the two day tournament covering the 18-hole championship course. Golfers were divided into four categories with both men and women playing a “Schamble” format. Excellent course conditions, perfect weather, and spectacular natural scenery were elements that all golfers enjoyed throughout the event.  On the second day, the tournament closed with a splendid buffet prepared by Mayan Palace, and recognitions passed out to golfers in each category. Plus, there was the traditional raffling off of gifts!

Luis Antonio Torres thanked his operation staff José Sánchez, Sergio Fierro, Francisco Sánchez, Yesenia López, as well as greenskeeper Engineer Manuel Venegas, along with all of the tournament’s sponsors and participating golfers who helped make the weekend of golf a complete success.  He invites everyone to continue enjoying the wonderful golf experience the Peninsula course offers along the Sea of Cortez in Puerto Peñasco!October Fest a golf fiesta by the sea!
