JAMAICA INVITATIONAL PRO-AM “ANNIE’S REVENGE” PRESENTED BY APPLETON ESTATE JAMAICA RUM RETURNS TO IBEROSTAR GRAND HOTEL ROSE HALL
15 Jul 2013
IBEROSTAR Hotels & Resorts is proud to serve as the hotel partner for the 8th Annual Jamaica Invitational Pro-Am "Annie’s Revenge," presented by Appleton Estate Jamaica Rum. The tournament will take place November 20 – 24, 2013, offering participants a five-day, all-inclusive experience at the AAA Four Diamond, adults-only IBEROSTAR Grand Hotel Rose Hall in Montego Bay, Jamaica.
"IBEROSTAR is proud to once again host Annie’s Revenge," said John Long, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for the brand. "We are committed to tourism growth within the region and look forward to another successful partnership with the Jamaica Tourist Board."
"Jamaica is pleased with the partnership support provided by IBEROSTAR, and we’re excited to welcome Appleton Estate Jamaica Rum as the presenting sponsor," said John Lynch, Jamaica’s Director of Tourism. "Jamaica offers golfers a diverse range of world-class designer championship courses. At the Jamaica Invitational Pro-Am, teams compete at two of the island’s most impressive golf courses. We’re hoping for another sold-out tournament this year."
Created in 2006 to showcase Jamaica’s world-class golf courses and resorts, "Annie’s Revenge" is played at the Cinnamon Hill and White Witch Golf Courses in Montego Bay. Conveniently located near the IBEROSTAR Grand Hotel Rose Hall, both courses are regarded as two of the finest championship layouts in the Caribbean. Located on a 600-acre plantation, White Witch Golf Course offers a par-71, 6,859-yard Championship layout with mountainous terrain and beautiful ocean views, while Cinnamon Hill boasts famous caddies and a par-71, 6,637-yard Championship layout across 400 lush acres of dense foliage.
The largest destination Pro-Am tournament in the Caribbean, teams of four players, comprised of a PGA club professional and three amateur golfers, will compete at both courses and vie for the Jamaica Pro-Am Championship trophy and a wide array of prizes. The stakes are high as golf professionals compete for a $30,000 USD Pro Purse, and amateurs battle for team and on-course prizes valued at more than $10,000 USD.
Tournament entry packages, including accommodations for four nights/five days at IBEROSTAR Grand Hotel Rose Hall, are priced at $3,175 USD for an amateur player (single occupancy), $2,775 for two players sharing a room (double occupancy) and $1,450 USD per person for non-golf guests sharing a room with a player. These packages provide an all-inclusive experience at the hotel, including food, premium liquor, tournament golf rounds for players and daily activities for non-playing guests, including spa treatments and local attraction tours. The hotel is also offering a "Pre/Post" travel package valid for stays just before or after the tournament for guests to extend their trips. Rates are $275 USD per night (single occupancy) for a tournament player or $402 USD (double occupancy) for a player and a guest.
