May 12, 2019 | 0 Comments

The Bermuda Golf Association [BGA] in partnership with Corona Extra and Newstead Belmont Hills Golf Club will be hosting the second annual Corona Golf Super6 commencing Thursday, May 30th, 2019.

The Corona Golf Super6 is a modified Stableford points, four-man team event with a 75% handicap adjustment. The handicap used throughout the duration of the event will be the player’s GHIN handicap as of May 15th, 2019. The maximum gross handicap for men will be 24 and 30 for women.

Each team will play 6 holes, over a six week period in a progressive shotgun format starting at 6.00pm each Thursday. Each week the teams will compete to accrue placement points. The final three weeks will see a double offering of placement points on offer. At the end of the six week league, the team with the most accrued points will be crowned the Corona Golf Super6 Champion Team of the Year.

Last year, saw XL Catlin steal victory in a strong showing in the final weeks with double points on offer.

The team entry fee is $1,000 for a total of 6 registered players [$167 per player], this includes 36 holes over the six week period, green fees and cart. On any given Thursday, four of the six registered players can represent the team. Special guests, which include visitors to the island can play for a team and register on the day of play for $100.

The Bermuda Golf Association President, Craig Brown, stated “ Golfers are finding less available time to enjoy a traditional full round of 18 holes. Last year we introduced this format with our main goal to offer a fun, relaxed golf atmosphere encouraging more people, including women to play the sport. This year we have a Ladies Day on June 27th and our sponsors will be providing special drinks and prizes for the ladies.”

All the funds raised will benefit the long-term charitable program plan of the Bermuda Golf Foundation [Charity #141].

The BGA President said, “The Corona Golf Super6 is open to all golf clubs, community clubs, sports clubs, corporate companies and groups of friends. It is a six week event, concluding on July 11, 2019 except for Thursday, July 4th [American Independence Day]. We wish to thank our sponsors, for their assistance: Corona Extra, Premier Tix, Belmont Hills Golf Club, Divots restaurant and APEX Physio.”
