THE Olive Press is sponsoring its first golf tournament.

The event at five star hotel Finca Cortesin, in Casares, is a twist on the normal type of tournament and is also raising money for charity.

The Twitface Open – an amateur Open marketed through Twitter and Facebook, hence the name – will take place in November.

Open to golfers of all abilities, the tournament launched in 2012 and has garnered a reputation as one of the most professional amateur tournaments in golf.

Also sponsored by local companies, including Ibex, Golfino, and BF Solicitors, the competition is offering an enticing prize fund of €3,500.

It will take place on November 10 to 11 and entry costs €289, including two rounds of competition golf, buggies, driving range balls, prizes and complimentary drinks.
