In late November I was fortunate enough to leave the cold in Germany for a couple of days and instead head down to Mallorca, Spain and enjoy the beautiful island, the cuisine, the hospitality and the fantastic golf offered over there.
Staying at the Castillo Hotel Son Vida comes with the perks of being able to play the Arabella Golf Mallorca courses, namely the Son Vida, the Son Muntaner and the Son Quint.
Recently I was given this ball as a present by a fellow golf journalist who I met in Mallorca at the Mallorca Press Cup 2019 which we both participated in as players.
The NVGJ, or Nederlandse Vereniging van Golfspelende Journalisten, is the Dutch association of golfing journalists. In 2019 they have their 25-year anniversary and therefore issued this ball.
I had no contact to the organization before but since we were talking golf and journalism a lot, we came across this particular group and I indeed became interested to join the German counterpart, the DMGG, Deutsche Medien Golf Gesellschaft.
Leo, if you read this, thanks again for the ball and the conversations we had. And who knows, maybe we’ll meet again in one of the golf journalists’ European Championships, head-to-head Germany vs The Netherlands. Looking forward to that.
