“It’s sunny, it’s freezing, let’s get going.” The words were those of the one and only Harry Diehl as the annual Travel Value Golf Cup got under way in Cannes on Sunday at the Cannes Mandelieu and Riviera golf courses.
The gale of the previous day had blown away, taking more than a few trees with it, to be replaced by delightful windless conditions. Once the morning chill was over, it was perfect golfing weather – something reflected in very low scoring by a number of teams playing the Texas scramble formula (pictured above are Stuart McGuire, Scorpio Distributors; Colm McLoughlin, Dubai Duty Free and Hans Wohmann of P&G Prestige Products).
The tournament was sponsored by Gebr Heinemann (as always) and Hugo Boss. All entry fees were donated to children’s cleft charity The Smile Train and a cheque for 15,000 Euros (including 1,000 Euros from Claus and Gunnar Heinemann) was presented (pictured below) during the lunch to Nadine Heubel, Head of Travel Retail at Hugo Boss and Martin Moodie representing The Moodie Report – the two companies that had organised the ‘Turning Tears into Smiles’ fund-raiser in Hong Kong earlier this month on behalf of The Smile Train.
