World Par 3 Championship To Return In 2016

December 22, 2015

For the seventh straight year, the Turtle Hill Golf Club at Fairmont Southampton in Bermuda will play host to the Grey Goose World Par-3 Championship, with the 36-hole championship set fot March 11 and 12, 2016; while the Pro-Am will be held on Sunday, March 13.

“The Grey Goose World Par 3 Championship continues to grow international prestige and attention as it has developed over the past six years,” said Paul Adams, Director of Golf for Turtle Hill Golf Club.

“The World Par 3 Championship continues to enjoy a wonderful relationship with Bacardi and its Grey Goose vodka brand. The partnership with the Bermuda Tourism Authority directly fulfills its goal of growing golf tourism in Bermuda.”

“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.”

As in previous years, the Bermuda Tourism authority and PGA Canada will continue as partners for this signature golf event in Bermuda. Golf Channel personality Charlie Rymer will also be back as the host of the 2016 Grey Goose World Par 3 Championship.

The event is expected to attract 120 participants from more than 10 countries, including a number of noted professionals. The Bermuda-based Bacardi National Par 3 Championship qualifying round will be played on January 9 and 10, 2016 and is currently experiencing a surge of local competition to gain entry into the National Par 3.

“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.”

The $75,000 professional championship purse breakdown has been streamlined, becoming more aligned with PGA of Canada purses. 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.

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 Thomas Curtis.

The 2016 Grey Goose World Par 3 Championship 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.”
