Regional golfers will be flying to Antigua to compete against Antiguan and Barbudan golfers at the INET International Pairs Caribbean Open, which will be held at the Cedar Valley Golf Course from September 7th and 8th, 2012.
Zorol Barthley of Golf Experience Caribbean, the organisers of the INET International Pairs Caribbean Open explains why the competition has been expanded: “We have had a lot of success over the previous three years locally and we feel it is time to include golfers from across the region, giving them an opportunity to experience our hospitality as well as our course at Cedar Valley. The franchise we have for International Pairs is for the entire Caribbean. This year, two teams, the top Antiguan team and the top Caribbean team will have an opportunity to participate in two tournaments – the first will be the Caribbean Golf Day in Brentwood, England, September 29 and then onto the International Pairs World Finals at Loch Lomond, Scotland from October 1 to 3.”
Registration has already begun and Barthley expects that they will exceed their 60 pairs: “We have been receiving a steady number of enquiries and registration is ongoing and at the present rate we should exceed our previous years.” : Lionel ‘Dougie’ O’Brien and Avery Jonas are the current title holders.
While INET is the title sponsor, other corporate entities continue to support this first class golf tournament: ECAB, Colombian Emeralds, LIAT, Johnnie Walker, Hertz, PIC Insurance, Rex Halcyon Cove, Snickers, Paradiso Water, Susies Hot Sauce, Imobile and Food & Drink Guide. The INET International Pairs Caribbean Tournament is endorsed by the Antigua and Barbua Tourism Authority.
