The competition served to promote for the second consecutive year the tourist destination and gastronomy of Andalusia in the capital of Spain, in addition to paying tribute to the figure of the late Blanca Fernández Ochoa within another great day of this unique competition, as it is the first egalitarian, inclusive, and sustainable golf circuit in Spain, which distributes €20,000 among four NGOs.
