Why You’ll Love the Latest Ingane Yami Charity Golf Tournament

Here at Tenerife Magazine we are passionate about supporting positive causes, such as charitable organisations that are doing important work. One such charity is Ingane Yami Children’s Village located near Durban in South Africa. Their fantastic mission statement is to rescue children, rebuild families, restore lives, release leaders. 

 

This amazing charity is closely supported by Pearly Grey Ocean Club, who help to raise funds through the generous donations from the staff and guests. Over the years those working and staying at the resort having formed a strong interest in helping Ingane Yami provide support to as many children as possible.

While there is still much to do in South Africa for underprivileged children, the vital work that the charity does is a huge step in the right direction. Another very important way that Pearly Grey helps to raise funds for Ingane Yami is through the annual charity golf tournament.

The first tournament was run back in 2010 and it is now we have the 9th edition of this tournament for you to look forward to. If you’ve never played in the tournament before we can guarantee you will love it and of course if you’ve taken part in previous  years, you know you can expect a brilliant day. Since 2010 the tournament has grown and grown in popularity and status, now being one of the most eagerly anticipated on the Tenerife golf calendar.

 

While of course this is a competition, it is all in good spirit to support a great cause, so while everyone who enters is playing to win, it is also a lot of fun for all involved. The tournament will once again be held at the beautiful Golf Costa Adeje course in the south of Tenerife. As it will be held on June 23rd there will be almost guaranteed gorgeous sunny weather so remember to bring sun screen!

During the day there will be a selection of great snacks and drinks. Then, following the tournament, there will be a delicious lunch and a raffle and auction with some absolutely fantastic prizes on offer! This is definitely one golf event you do not want to miss out on. Not only will it be a whole lot of great fun, but also raising money for an excellent cause. All funds raised are donated to the Ingane Yami Children’s Village.

For many years Ingane Yami have been making an incredible difference in restoring hope into the lives of children who at one time were all faced with seemingly hopeless situations. They help to provide accommodation, education, and support so that the children that they care for can go onto leading lives full of opportunity. Ultimately, through taking part in this tournament you

My Stay at Pearly Grey

Pearly Grey is based in a lovely town called Callao Salvaje in Adeje. Though the town is small and was originally a village, it does have a few reasonably priced restaurants, a couple of supermarkets, some other little shops, and a lovely new beach area called Playa Ajabo. The beach is made up of volcanic sand and is a good place to relax and enjoy some peace and quiet. If you are up for it, it is possible to hike up a small nearby hill, and get a great overview of the area.

When my son and I first arrived at Pearly Grey Ocean Club nearing midnight, I knew we were going to have a fun time there! My first impression of the resort was that it was well-maintained and quiet. It was very easy to get to from Tenerife South Airport, and if you don’t have your own transportation, a taxi isn’t too costly.

We stayed in a one bedroom fully equipped apartment overlooking the ocean so fell asleep listening to the soothing sound of the waves below. It was fantastic to sit out on the balcony in the evening watching the magnificent sunsets.

The customer service is excellent, and all members of staff exceeded my expectations! I have to say a special thanks to Gemma from reception who my son adored.

On the resort there is a heated pool, which I made use of in the mornings when it was almost empty. It has sun all day long, and there is a separate children’s pool with a small playground. During the day there is a lifeguard on duty. You will also find an adults own section with some large sunbeds to rest in.

At Pearly Grey there is a laundry room and a fitness centre, so while waiting for your washing to be finished it’s possible to catch up on your training. There is also an entertainment programme with activities during the day and evening so even if you don’t like to sit still there is plenty to entertain you.

There are two restaurants at Pearly Grey and I ate at them both. The Quo restaurant has a terrace overlooking the pool area, so while the adults grab a coffee they can watch their children play. I had an evening meal there, which tasted delicious, and they made a spaghetti Bolognese for my son, which he really enjoyed.

On another night I had dinner at The Edge Restaurant, and yes, this restaurant is quite literally on the edge overlooking the ocean. Before dinner I was able to enjoy another beautiful sunset here. The views are simply stunning, and it is possible to see the island of La Gomera in the distance across the sea.

For dinner I ate with some friends and we shared many different tapas dishes. I enjoyed them all so much that I ended up finishing the last bits on all the plates. During dinner we were treated to a live performance by Obsession Duo. They played some songs that we all knew, and some to get everyone into the Christmas spirit. The Edge is a restaurant which should definitely be tried, and is one of Tenerife’s best kept secrets.

If you would like me to sum up my visit here, all I can really say is that I had such a wonderful experience that I’m coming back for a few nights again in May. Pearly Grey has now become one of my very favourite places to stay in Tenerife!
