16 May 2019 - 16h13

Mathieu Decottignies Lafon (885th World) played this morning alongside some fifty local amateur players, as part of a golf competition organized by the bank Havilland Monaco.

This is the first time the institution has organized a competition of this type for its customers, prospects and partners. A total of 54 people gathered at the Monte-Carlo Golf Club green, accompanied by professional golfer Mathieu Decottignies Lafon at 8am. An event that the company wishes to renew every year because of the enthusiasm of the participants. “The idea is part of an observation: There are many golfers in the bank, our customers and even within the structure. We hope to establish this competition in a recurring way because the golf illustrates perfectly the image that we wish to convey “, explains Patrick Dauguet, CEO of Havilland Monaco.

A perfect opportunity for lovers of this sport to confront a professional. “The spot is sublime and the weather is perfect. I play a little with everyone, even if some are stressed, I try to relax them! It’s a moment of sharing that everyone loves“, said the golfer between games. Spread out in teams of three players per hole on the 18 holes of the driving range, these amateurs were able to play side by side with Mathieu Decottignies Lafon, who turned between the groups all the morning. Then place at the awards ceremony at 2pm, and then a game demonstration by the golfer followed in the afternoon.

And for car enthusiasts, Aston Martin, a partner of the group, has offered “test drives” on different models of cars and that all day long
