Tee off for Earth Day

It’s all about the green next Friday, 19 April, when teams tee off in the National Trust for the Cayman Islands’ Earth Day Golf Tournament.  

Teams of four will be heading out to the North Sound Club for a tee time of 1pm.  

It’s the second time that the National Trust has organised a golf tournament in celebration of Earth Day and so far it looks like it’s an event that is just going to get bigger and better every year. There’s plenty of fun, food and games to be had along the way – including free beer at one of the holes, compliments of Caybrew.  

Island Supply has supplied barbecue items for the tournament and Mark Lea*, a.k.a Boss Hogg, will be keeping the grill sizzling all day long.  

“This means the players can just drop in and grab a burger or chicken sandwich instead of waiting until the end to eat. Check in is at 12 noon so they can eat before, during and after!” says Basia McGuire, development and marketing officer for the National Trust. It’s a four person scramble and entry fees are $150 per person or $600 per team.  

Proceeds from the tournament will go toward supporting the National Trust’s historic and environmental preservation efforts, so there couldn’t be a better way to support a greener future.  

On top of that, there are some fantastic prizes to be won, all with a nature and environmental slant.  

Think you can hit a hole in one? If you can, you’ll be driving home in your own electric vehicle. 

Other prizes that are up for grabs include a Stingray City helicopter tour, a charter with Cayman Luxury Charters, meals at Guy Harvey’s, sunset sails with Red Sail Sports, a Cayman Golfer package for two comprising a one night stay and a round of golf at the Ritz Carlton, as well as prizes from Bay Market and Jessie’s Juices.
