On Saturday 30th April the 2nd Quaynote / YachtMedia Golf and Networking Day will take place at the Son Gual Golf Course on the outskirts of Palma. The event will be presided over by local PGA Golf professional Peter Ledwidge, and will offer an 18 hole stableford competition with prizes for experienced golfers. There will also be a three hour tuition session for those with no previous experience who want to learn the basics of golf from a qualified teacher, and to enjoy a day out at the same great venue. Transport to and from the course will be provided in the package.
