The RMGC is fortunate and grateful to have amongst its midst Sig. Alessio Lucciarini, co-owner of Cesare Sarti, a bespoke Italian tailoring “sartoria” located in Valletta and abroad. Alessio has generously shared with the RMGC the sartoria’s local success by sponsoring, once again, the Cesare Sarti Classic. Grazie Alessio, apprezziamola!
Pleasant autumn weather, together with good course conditions, greeted the 118 competitors over Thursday to Saturday for this 18-hole competition. Compared to previous weeks, good scores were recorded this weekend. None were better than Cenk Kahraman’s 42 points, eight pars and one birdie on the final hole, which earned him the 1st prize of a Cesare Sarti tailored suit of retail value €850. Cenk, an already-customer of Alessio’s, will be one to appreciate this coveted prize with delight. Well done Cenk!
In 2nd place with 41pts, on count-back, we have Jon Horddal Jonasson who has won a tailored jacket of retail value €450. Peter Cotton, also with 41pts, claimed 3rd spot and a tailored shirt of retail value €100.
Geoffrey Spiteri (41pts), Alessio himself (40pts), Antti Kumpulainen (39pts), and Bengt Angelow (39pts) came 4th – 7th respectively. Alessio most kindly passed over his prize, which left Geoffrey, Antti and Bengt to collect a fine bottle of Morellino Di Scansano D.O.C.G., all donated by co-sponsor Cru Wine Bar, Cantina Vignaioli, St. Lucia Street, Valletta. Geoffrey, Antti and Bengt, please collect your fine wine from the RMGC Reception.
The supplementary prizes for “nearest to line” on the 4th, and for “closest to pin” on the 17th were won by Grigor Khachaturov and John Finnighan respectively. Grigor and John have both won a tailored Cesare Sarti shirt of retail value €100. Cenk, Jon, Peter, Grigor and John, please collect your winners’ voucher from Reception. Then, contact Alessio (tel. 77106458) before making your way to 126 Old Mint Street, Valletta to measure, select, and collect your elegant couture.
Fifteen twos were scored, none better than Ivan Micallef’s on the challenging 5th! Each will receive a credit for five balls.
I urge all members of the RMGC to support Cesare Sarti (one street down from to St. Augustine’s parish church) and Cru Wine Bar (close to St. Paul’s parish church), especially when walking around in Valletta. Please introduce yourselves as RMGC members, and take time to extend your appreciation for their generous sponsorships.
It’s the BOV Monthly Medal this coming weekend. Dare I say this…good weather is forecast. Book now on PSI/HDID/ClubV1, and on BRS, or via Reception.
Enjoy your golf,
