Goslings 2016 Invitational – Bermuda’s Singular Golf Event, now at Two Stunning Courses

Professionals Play for Prize Purse of $65,000.

Amateurs Play for Gross and Net Prizes.

Join us for this Grand Golfing & Goslings Get Together.

With more golf courses per square mile than any country in the world, it’s no wonder golfing is Bermuda’s national sport.  (Though cricketers may argue).

And, with our 210-year history here, it’s no wonder Goslings Dark ’n Stormy® is Bermuda’s National Drink.

We invite you to join a select group and partake of both these national treasures for five outstanding days in one of the world’s most idyllic settings.

Belmont Hills Golf Course – 27, 28 and 29 November
Our five-day golfers’ dream event opens with a practice round (optional) on Sunday 27 November, followed by two days of tournament play at this tricky, heavily bunkered layout.  Recently re-designed by noted California architect and member of the American Society of Golf Architects, Algie Pulley, Jr., this challenging course now features slender fairways of 419 Bermuda Grass approaching USGA style greens that are multi-tiered and slick to thoroughly test your short game.  Not to mention the many panoramic views across Hamilton Harbour to thoroughly test your concentration.  Belmont Hills is considered one of the most challenging and baffling 6,000 yard golf courses in the world.

Port Royal Golf Course – 30 November and 1 December
Days four and five move to the spectacular Port Royal course, host of the PGA Tour Grand Slam for several years and renowned for its famous 16th par three hole, which measures 235 yards from the tips – its cliff-edge tee – across a yawning gap to its promontory-perched green.  A $15.9 million renovation in 2009 by Robert Rulewich helped perfect this Robert Trent Jones, Sr. course, lengthening it to 6,842 yards of mostly undulating terrain with wide fairways and expensive greens all bordered by dramatic oceanside cliffs.  Yes, Port Royal also throws amazing views at you from a number of holes, just to see how well you can focus.  Note: Port Royal is also offering a special $65 rate for amateurs (and cart fee only for pros) who’d like to jump start even a day early, on Saturday 26 November.

Unforgettable Days of Golf deserve Memorable Nights of Fun.

Besides doubling the courses you’ll play this year, we’re also doubling the evening entertainment you’ll enjoy.  So don’t plan on getting a lot of rest at sundown.
