GREY GOOSE® World Par 3 Championship is set to return to Turtle Hill Golf Club at Fairmont Southampton in Bermuda March 11-13, 2016

For the seventh straight year, The Turtle Hill Golf Club at Fairmont Southampton in Bermuda will play host to the world’s premier par 3 championship. GREY GOOSE®, the world’s l eading super-premium vodka, will continue to be the title sponsor of the renowned World Par-3 Championship. The 36-hole championship will be contested on March 11 and 12, 2016, and the Pro-Am will be held on Sunday, March 13.

Engaging golf enthusiasts for more than a decade, GREY GOOSE®, has maintained a strong presence via tournament sponsorships, experiential events, and signature golf cocktails. This involvement has made GREY GOOSE® the most preferred spirit among golfers in the United States. In addition, GREY GOOSE® is the Official Spirit of the PGA TOUR, and has long-established ties with professional golfers. GREY GOOSE® currently is represented in all facets of its golf program by six-time PGA TOUR champion Matt Kuchar, the official GREY GOOSE® golf pro.

As in previous years, the Bermuda Tourism authority and PGA Canada will continue as partners for this signature golf event in Bermuda. Golf Channel personality Charlie Rymer will also be back as the host of the 2016 GREY GOOSE® World Par 3 Championship.

As the world’s premier par 3 championship, the event is expected to attract 120 participants from more than 10 countries, including a number of noted professionals. The Bermuda-based Bacardi National Par 3 Championship qualifying round was played on January 9 and 10, 2016 and experienced a surge of local competition to gain entry into the National Par 3.

“The GREY GOOSE® World Par 3 Championship is a perfect fit for Bermuda. The championship plays host to an international field and players get a feel for the island and its hospitality whilst competing on one of the world’s finest par 3 courses,” said Andrew Brooks, Director of Golf Sales and Marketing for the Bermuda Tourism Authority.“ Golf continues to be a key component of the overall strategic plan and value proposition of Bermuda, and we are delighted to partner with Fairmont Southampton and Bacardi to help drive golf business to the destination.”

 The $75,000 (USD) professional championship purse breakdown has been streamlined, becoming more aligned with PGA of Canada purses. In addition to the professionals in the championship, the field will be rounded out by an impressive list of amateur golfers—from Bermuda, the United States, Canada and Europe—vying for titles in the men’s, women’s and senior amateur divisions.

Past champions of the GREY GOOSE® World Par 3 Championship include Bermudian Daniel Augustus, PGA Tour winner Nick Taylor, PGA of Canada member Ian Doig, American Jordan Mitchell, Mark Mouland of the European Senior Tour and last year’s winner Thomas Curtis.

The 2016 GREY GOOSE®World Par 3 Championship will benefit the Bermuda Sea Turtle Project, the official charity partner of the Turtle Hill Golf Club. The Turtle Hill Golf Club has been recognized by Golf Magazine as one of the “Top 5 Par 3 Courses in the World” and is a recipient of Golf Digest’s “Best Places to Play Golf Award.”
