Travel Cue Sponsors Pinmar Golf Grande Finale 2019

Pinmar Golf has evolved from a small local tournament into a much larger, highly anticipated industry event within the Yachting world. The underlying ethos of the event is coming together to socialise within the yachting industry parameter whilst giving back to the community in a charatable manner.

Travel Cue Management had the opportunity to sponsor and take part in the Grande Finale of the Pinmar Golf Tournament. Making it the 31st & last annual golfing event held in beautiful, Palma de Mallorca, Spain.

Travel Cue’s participation involved two flights of players, which included CEO, Nagender Chilkuri and deputy Managing Director, Joanna Kaunang. Other Travel Cue participants involved were, Head of Global Operations, Rahul Pereira, and Account Managers Sebastian Leong, and Frances Blackburn.

Travel Cue’s involvement and sponsorship also extended towards being one of the five refreshment bars on course situated at the famous ‘hole-in-one’ hole. Known as “Travel Cue Executive Lounge”, the bar held a variety of food, and alcoholic / non-alcoholic beverages, and was able to raise significant funds as further contribution towards the Pinmar charity. Aside from the charitable aspect, the ambiance brought by the Travel Cue bar was one of fun enhanced by trendy music and the constant flow of people.

The Friday Night VIP Party proved to be an exciting industry socialising experience with flowing drinks, canapés, and live music. With the stunning venue of Cappuccino in Puerto Portales, the event was a perfect way to cap off two days of golf.

The culmination of the four day golfing event took place at the exclusive Son Amar estate with a black-tie dinner and prize giving extravaganza. The memorable evening was further amplified with incredible comedic performances, along with talented singers & dancers to draw everyone into dancing the night away.

Travel Cue is delighted to have been a part of such an established tournament dedicated towards socialising for an important charitable cause and looks forward to a potential involvement in Pinmar’s future endeavor : Pinmar Festival 2020.
