28 February 2024 By Staff Report

A brand-new event is being added to the yachting calendar — the Barcelona Golf Invitational presented by BOAT and Voly Group. Taking place on May 15-16, 2024, the event will bring together captains and yacht owners, as well as other industry professionals, for a golf tournament at one of Spain’s premier golf courses — Camiral Golf & Wellness.

Home to the Spanish Open on three occasions, Camiral Golf & Wellness offers two top-ranking golf courses, both of which feature in Golf Digest's Top 10 Best Golf Courses in Spain — Stadium Course takes second place and Tour Course takes eighth. The 18-hole Barcelona Golf Invitational will take place on the Stadium Course, which has been home to many PGA European golf events.

“The aim of the event is to raise money for a number of worthwhile charities by bringing together owners, captains, crew and friends of the yachting industry for a premium and relaxed tournament joined by European Tour golfers at one of the best golf courses in Spain,”   says Ian Flanagan, CEO of Voly Group.

BOAT International and Voly Group have announced that professional Scottish golfer Ewen Ferguson, a two-time DP World Tour Champion, will participate in the event, allowing attendees to meet and play alongside a seasoned pro. Guests will also have the chance to engage in friendly competition with Ferguson in events such as The Longest Drive, Nearest the Pin and other golf challenges.

“How often can you say you have played golf with a professional two-time European Tour Championship golfer? This is an opportunity to play against one of the most exciting prospects in the golf world whilst raising money for some amazing charities," Flanagan adds.

In addition to the golf tournament, attendees can look forward to an exciting social agenda featuring a welcome cocktail reception, lunch and an evening barbecue, prize-giving and after-party.

“This one-of-a-kind event to kick off the Mediterranean yachting season is a must for golfing enthusiasts,” Flanagan explains. “As always, we have a number of surprises in the making, including music and entertainment. So, watch this space!”
