The Grey Goose World Par 3 Championship, which takes place March 28-30 at Turtle Hill Golf Club at the Fairmont Southampton Resort in Bermuda, has enlisted the PGA of Canada championship operations team to partner with current tournament officials, Bermuda Tees.
“We want to make the Grey Goose World Par 3 Championship a truly world class event and felt we needed to bring in one of the best operations team in the world, the PGA of Canada, to execute the various aspects of the event from start to finish,” said Turtle Hill Golf Club’s director of golf Anthony Mocklow.
“The PGA of Canada championship operations team has a proven track record of putting on best in class golf championships, so it makes a lot of sense to have them partner with us and take the Grey Goose World Par 3 Championship to the next level,” said Mocklow.
With a purse of $75,000, the championship is expected to attract more than 160 participants from 15 different countries including a number of players from the PGA of Canada player rankings.
The PGA of Canada also has 10 exemptions directly into the event, starting in 2014.
The championship is now open to all PGA of Canada members.
“The opportunity to partner with Grey Goose World Par 3 Championship was something the PGA of Canada could not refuse,” said PGA of Canada CEO Gary Bernard.
“Securing these exemptions and playing opportunities for our members is exciting and we are honoured the Grey Goose World Par 3 Championship team has put their trust in our team to partner with Bermuda Tees in the running of the 2014 event,” said Bernard.
