On May 19th, the second edition of the Pro Am BARNES Evian, a golf tournament at the Golf Evian Resort was held between professional and amateur players. BARNES takes you back on this sporty day.
BAD WEATHER, EXCEPTIONAL MOTIVATION
In the early morning, the awakening of the players was difficult : capricious weather but with a big motivation for this exceptional tournament.The reception of the golfers was therefore carried out under water spouts but fortunately, the players were greeted at the Golf Chalet where the manager lit the stove dominating the room.After a convivial breakfast, all participants were presented with a welcome kit : Polo & Barnes cap, golf ball, small bottle of Evian water, two magazines : French Properties, Barnes Luxury Homes and one year subscription to the Figaro Website.
The first start was given at 9 am. Marion DUVERNAY and Lucie ANDRÉ, two "proettes", honored us of their presence on this edition of Prom Am.
Over the course of the day, score cards fill up and the first rays of sunshine appear. 120 players in 30 teams compete in a tournament in 4 balls engaged per player and 2 balls retained for the score.
The game takes place on a high quality ground: green, fairway and bunker at the top! We also thank Mathieu CAMISON, the director of the Golf for his exemplary welcome and the quality of the field delivered.
