Anguilla Open Golf Tournament

Maybe it’s not as famous as “The Open,” the golf tournament that is so fabled that it doesn’t even need to say which “Open” it is. But ours is still a national championship.

And how often do you get a chance to win one of those?

C’mon down and enter the 3rd Annual Anguilla Open, June 27th to 29th, 2014. The first-ever Anguilla Open was one by local “laddie” (as they say in Scotland), Theron Loizos, owner and chef of Picante Restaurant. A scratch golfer, he’s the odds-on favorite to win it back this year.

Here is the planned schedule…

Practice Round Friday, Round One Saturday and Round Two Sunday
Entry Fee, Tee Gift and Beverage Cart
Continental Breakfast at Café Med during stay
Opening Reception at Clubhouse
Lunch Saturday & Sunday
Awards Reception Sunday
