For nearly 17 years, BFBS Gibraltar has held an annual fundraiser on the Costa Del Sol, which has consistently had incredible support from residents of the Rock and nearby Spain. This year, the BFBS Big Salute Captain’s Day takes place at Estepona Golf Club on Saturday 23rd June and is a joint fundraiser for BFBS Big Salute and British Heart Foundation in memory of George Pusey. Up to 18 teams tee off for a 9 o’clock shotgun start, in the 4-ball Texas scramble. There’s prizes to be won back at the clubhouse in the Grand Raffle, and the competition is open to everyone. It’s €70 per person, which includes a bacon roll and coffee on arrival, green fees, buggy and a BBQ lunch on the terrace after the morning’s golf. For more information, and to register your teams of 4, call +350 2005 5389, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
