Benchmark Destinations Garry Hallinan wins a new BMW.

Garry Hallinan, a senior partner with destination management company Benchmark Destinations, based in San Francisco, shot his first-ever hole-in-one during Associated Luxury Hotels International’s 2013 ALHI Member-Guest Executive Cup golf tournament at Ojai Valley Inn & Spa in Ojai, Calif. His feat proved to be particularly rewarding, as Hallinan won a black BMW 740Li, valued at more than $84,000.

Hallinan is pictured receiving the keys to the new car from Pete Ells, managing director of Ojai Valley Inn & Spa. Also pictured presenting the new car to Hallinan are ALHI Division Vice President for the West Chris Riccardi (second from right), and ALHI Executive Vice President for the Global Division Don Macumber (right).

This marked the ninth consecutive year of the ALHI Member-Guest Executive Cup, which was co-hosted this year by Ojai Valley Inn & Spa and Delta Air Lines. The popular annual program brings together 24 member-guest teams consisting of one ALHI member hotel or resort executive with a senior-level executive guest customer. In addition to the team challenge golf tournament the program featured special networking opportunities, a business workshop, and an awards dinner.
