Yesterday was one of our favourite events of the year, as we invited former and current professional footballers, along with our partners, to come and play some Footgolf in Rotterdam.
Teeing off at the Seve Golfcenter, we began with easy going chit-chats between former and current football players, followed by an exciting Footgolf challenge where Life After Football founder Regi Blinker opened the event. Cocktails from Casa Ron and pre-game coffee from Illy, was the order of the day. A fine way to launch our new magazine, Issue 58.
The first game of the yearly Footgolf occasion was between the pros – and with a guest list of names such as Khalid Boulahrouz, Royston Drenthe and Hedwiges Maduro, you can imagine it was an amusing challenge and very competitive. For the second match, the great list of partners and sponsors were also involved – all draped in the sharpest Umbro outfits.
After nine holes – plus a bonus game with Hugo BOSS – the winners were announced: Denny Landzaat, Lars Veldwijk and John van den Brom won the big prizes. Landzaat’s performance saw the former Netherlands midfielder go home with a beautiful Omega watch, courtesy of Gassan – the ultimate prize.
