I recently spoke about the Steps of Love and the upcoming Charity Golf Tournament. On February 13th our foursome tee’d off to do their Shamble. At first I thought it was a misprint but low and behold there is such thing as a Shamble and a Scramble. Over 50 golfers turned out for this beautiful Chamber of Commerce day and it was enjoyed by all. As you can see from the photos, some had more fun than others. The shotgun start started at around 9 and ended in the afternoon just in time for the wine reception at Las Palomas Golf Resort and followed with a Silent Auction. I will tell you that due to the generosity of local merchants, artists and restaurants we had so many wonderful items up for bidding. All of these funds go to the Steps of Love which benefits the Amores Children’s Orphanage here in Puerto Peñasco and Sonoyta as well.It is because of Kathy Duncan and her love for all of these children, that this has happened.
As you can see from the 17th green the views are spectacular even though the winter grass is dormant, but beginning to green out. Easy hole they said, but only a few people hit the green.
Local Realtor and avid Golfer Glen Martinez and his partner on the 17th Hole
Team Captain Architect Plineo Rivera(in green shirt) and his foursome. All great golfers and the most colorful of all the teams.
As I have spoken about many times we have countless things to do here in Puerto Peñasco, one of them of them being para sailing. As you can see, from this guy who did fly overs all day long, he had a birds eye view of the entire Las Palomas Golf Course.
The next pictures are of the foursome who although may have not been the scratch golfers, they certainly had the most fun. We could hear them from several holes away laughing and falling down when they “wiffed” the ball, which on the 17th Hole seemed to be a lot. But hey, that is what GOLF is about, sometimes just having fun.
Remember when you come to Puerto Peñasco…, BE PREPARED TO HAVE FUN no matter what you are doing.
Another one bites the dust was the moto of the golf carts, another great foursome of great players and the last picture is Team Scott Poturaski and some of the volunteers, who helped the players as well as the Hole In One Volunteers which consisted of Bill Arrowood and myself, Ron and Judy Ridgway and Bill Bingham and Rick Busa. Without the hard work (well not really on a beautiful day) some of this doesn’t always run smoothly.
As you can see in the above pictures, our local artists, wine shop and Tequila stores, local merchants, photographers, local bars and restaurants and local jewelry artists donated so generously and we thank them so very very much. If you have any questions about how to get in touch with these business people, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get you their contact information.
The winners are: 1st Place: Natalie and Josh Jones and 2nd Place: Audrey and Will Feliz.
Thanks to all the golfers and Businesses who helped raise $10,000 net for Pasos de Amor Children’s Home in Sonoyta, the Amores de Penasco Children’s Shelter in Rocky Point and our new Civil Association AIMpenasco.
