4th Annual IGOLF Environmental Tour Review

The 4th Annual IGOLF Environment Tour 2012 Edition was enjoyed by friends of IGOLF and the Lavaux Golf Club. Once again, we had great weather for our participants and clinic attendees.


For the second year IGOLF focused its special event on the social aspects of the foundation by dedicating the event to the golf activities of the Just for Smiles Foundation which also outdoor activities for severely handicapped children, adolescents and adults.



MyGolf SA, the organizer of the IGOLF event thanks our loyal partners, IOGI SA and Giroud Vins, without whose support the event would be impossible. We welcome new sponsors this year: Peak of Well being whose founders Duncan Reeve and Jennie Delbridge help people to attain better fitness and create a more wholesome lifestyle, Holmes Place a major fitness center in Lausanne and the Let’sGolf Indoor Golf Center whose Director Lavaina Floris provides us with excellent support for the Best Predicted Drive activity.



Special thanks to Philippe Salomon of the Lavaux Golf Club and his helpful and friendly team who help and professionalism are is immeasurable.
