Charity golf 2008

CHARITY GOLF CHAMPIONSHIP - KOBLENZ GUITAR FESTIVAL 2008

On the 4th of May we celebrated the 2nd edition of the Stars Charity Golf Championship in Jakobsberg Golf Course, a few Kilometres outside Koblenz in Germany.

The atmosphere couldn't have been better. We had one of the first sunny warm days of the year and, after a long winter, everybody was ready for it.

The course is beautiful and overlooks this wonderful castle.

We had guitarists from different parts of the world, who joined the golf championship, maybe not because it was another golf competition, but with an ulterior motive. In this case, the money went to making wells in Africa and this idea inspired the event.

Georg Schmitz was the driving force and we want to publicly express our gratitude to his continuos support of our NGO. He has been with us in every step of the way from the very beginning and he is still full of enthusiasm. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you, Georg. Without your invaluable help, we wouldn't have been able to gather so many wonderful people in such an outstanding event.

 Here are some of the foursomes of the championship.

 We shared fantastic moments with the Pro of the Club, Mike McFadden, who livened the experience of the day with his joyful demenour.

Some friends at the end of the championship.

 The non golfers had the opportunity to receive their first golf class and at the end of it there was a Putting Competition.

This is the team of the winners for the beginners group.

 The following were some of the winners in the championship, in different categories.

 At the end, the golf club offered a delicious meal and there were fabulous musical performances, among them guitarist Russell Poyner from England and his group.
