Cayman National putts in support

Cayman National is once again the title sponsor for the Cayman Islands Golf Championships.

The Cayman Islands Golf Association is very happy to have the support of Cayman National as they get set to host the Island Championship on 11-12 May at The North Sound Golf Club.

Golf association president Jason Perras states the support will go a long way, “Cayman National has been a huge supporter of golf in the Cayman Islands for a number of years and we are extremely proud to once again partner with them as we prepare to host the Cayman Islands Golf Championships.

“Without the support of Cayman National and our other sponsors, it is difficult to support all of our golf initiatives on the island. A huge thank you goes out to Cayman National. This year’s championships should be hotly contested in all categories as we have a number of men and women playing exceptionally well.”

The two day event will be played in a stroke play format. Golfers of all levels will be eligible to compete as their will be a Mens, Senior Mens and Super Senior Mens Championship Divisions along with a Ladies Championship Division and both Mens and Womens Handicap Divisions. Those who do not want to play in the championship flight are encouraged to enter the ladies or men’s ‘A’ flight.

This is played from the blue tees (men) and red tees (ladies). Handicaps from 0–24 for men and 0–30 for ladies are welcome.

Cayman National President Ormond Williams states the company is keen to stimulate sports tourism.

“Cayman National is once again happy to support the golf association by coming on board as the title sponsor of the championships,” Williams said. “With the Cayman Islands being the host for this year’s championships, we believe the event will stimulate sports tourism in our islands. We wish the organizers and golfers an exciting and competitive tournament.”

Winners from the Ladies and Men’s championship flights will be eligible for a place on the national team this summer as they travel to St. Thomas for the Caribbean Amateur Golf Championships. The tournament is the premier event for amateur golfers in the Caribbean and is held in a different Caribbean island each year.

The entry fee for next month’s tournament is $75. Cart and green fees for both days are payable directly to the North Sound Golf Club.

The golf association is an organization committed to growing the game of golf in the Cayman Islands. The association is a fun and friendly golf environment focused on amateur golfers of all levels. Members enjoy benefits such as US Golf Association Handicap tracking, support for junior golf, entry and reduced green fees for monthly organized tournaments and the opportunity to qualify for the Cayman Islands national team.
