“As part of the Bacardi portfolio of premium spirits, Grey Goose has a long-standing commitment to, and leadership position within, the sport of golf,” said Clara Fay, Director of Corporate Affairs – Bermuda, for Bacardi Limited.

“Golf is a sport that truly reflects the brand value of the passionate pursuit of the extraordinary. The sponsorship of this premier golf event in our Bermuda backyard will enable us to have an even deeper level of engagement with Grey Goose enthusiasts and golf fans.”

“Engaging golf enthusiasts for more than a decade, Grey Goose has maintained a strong presence via tournament sponsorships, experiential events, and signature golf cocktails. This involvement has made Grey Goose® the most preferred spirit among golfers in the United States.

“In addition, Grey Goose is the Official Spirit of the PGA Tour, and has long-established ties with professional golfers.

“The Grey Goose World Par 3 Championship is a perfect fit for Bermuda. The championship plays host to an international field and players get a feel for the island and its hospitality whilst competing on one of the world’s finest par 3 courses,” said Andrew Brooks, Director of Golf Sales and Marketing for the Bermuda Tourism Authority.”

“Golf continues to be a key component of the overall strategic plan and value proposition of Bermuda, and we are delighted to partner with Fairmont Southampton and Bacardi to help drive golf business to the destination.”

“In addition to the professionals in the championship, the field will be rounded out by an impressive list of amateur golfers—from Bermuda, the United States, Canada and Europe—vying for titles in the men’s, women’s and senior amateur divisions and their share of the $75,000 [USD] purse.

“Past champions of the Grey Goose World Par 3 Championship include Bermudian Daniel Augustus, PGA Tour winner Nick Taylor, PGA of Canada member Ian Doig, American Jordan Mitchell, Mark Mouland of the European Senior Tour and last year’s winner Rafael Becker. Brazilian Rafael Becker, born in 1991 in Sao Paulo, turned pro in 2013 and finished the 2015 season ranked 65th on the Order of Merit of PGA TOUR Latinoamérica.

“Prior to Grey Goose World Par 3 Championship, locals are encouraged to compete for entry into the tournament by enrolling in the Bermuda-based Bacardi National Par 3 Championship qualifying round, which will be played on February 25 & 26, 2017.

“The Grey Goose World Par 3 Championship, as well as the Bacardi National Par 3 Championship, are both integral to Fairmont Southampton’s strategic golf plan, which aims to drive golfers to Bermuda’s shores. Both golf tournaments will benefit the Bermuda Sea Turtle Project, the official charity partner of the Turtle Hill Golf Club.

“The Turtle Hill Golf Club has been recognized by Golf Magazine as one of the “Top 5 Par 3 Courses in the World” and is a recipient of Golf Digest’s “Best Places to Play Golf Award.”
