For the past nine years, Pearly Grey has successfully raised a substantial amount of funding for the brilliant Ingane Yami children’s village, through its much enjoyed annual charity golf tournament. This year was no exception, as the tournament proved to be just as popular among all of the players competing and their friends and family members who came to support them.
Ingane Yami does vital work in South Africa caring for and supporting orphaned children, who would have very little hope otherwise. Each year the tournament raises a large sum of money for the charity which will be put to fantastic use. This year there was around €20,000 raised through sponsorship, donations, a charity auction and raffle tickets which is outstanding!
Most of the children cared for by Ingane Yami have unfortunately suffered from heart-breaking starts in life, but with the help of the charity they are able to look forward towards a much brighter and successful future.
This year’s tournament was once again held at the gorgeous Golf Costa Adeje golf course, one of the most popular in the Canary Islands. This event proved to be a brilliant experience for all involved, with everyone enjoying a great day out among friends and colleagues and in good spirits for what was the sixth consecutive year at this beautiful course.
Although there were some clouds early on in the day, the weather turned out to be absolutely perfect, with plenty of warm sunshine, a bright blue sky and only a light breeze which helped to keep the players cool. Playing conditions were also excellent for those competing due to the high level of course maintenance.
It was great to see the large turnout for this charity tournament, supporting such a worthy cause, with 84 competitors from the UK, Tenerife and South Africa taking part.

As in previous years, the team at Pearly Grey did a wonderful job of organising this tournament, in conjunction with the professional and friendly staff at Golf Costa Adeje. This includes a special shout-out to Pearly Grey team member Dennis Markham, who has once again worked tirelessly with the organisation of the tournament, and on the actual day of the event. We would also like to mention the excellent work that Power FM and Island Connections have done helping with the promotion of the tournament.

This event is expected to continue to become better each year, having become firmly established on the Tenerife golfing calendar! There was a prize giving buffet dinner that everyone enjoyed following their time out on the course, as a wonderful conclusion to the end of the tournament.

We would also like to give a big thanks to photographer Paulino Diaz Lorenzo for his excellent work on the day, and for taking the tournament photos each year for free. It is individuals like Paulino that really make the difference on charity events such as this tournament. You can find all of the photos that Paulino took on the day here in this album on the Pearly Grey Facebook page.
