Visitors to Bermuda in 2007 will have the opportunity to see some of the world’s top golfers compete in The PGA Grand Slam of Golf, the season-ending showcase featuring golf’s biggest names. The high-stakes tournament, which featured a US1.25 million budget in 2006, will cross North America to the island of Bermuda and will be hosted by The Mid Ocean Club and The Fairmont Southampton from 16th – 17th October 2007.
The PGA Grand Slam of Golf concluded its 24th edition on 22nd November 2006 at Poipu Bay Golf Course and Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort & Spa in Hawaii, won by Tiger Woods for a seventh time.
In 2007, the winners of the year’s Masters, U.S. Open, British Open and PGA Championship will earn the right to compete on the 6,520-yard, par-70 layout that was designed by Charles Blair Macdonald in 1921, and modified in the 1950s by the late Robert Trent Jones Sr.
“Bermuda has long been known as a golfer’s paradise, worthy of the best players in the world,” said Bermuda’s Premier, Minister of Tourism and Transport, Dr. the Hon. Ewart F. Brown, JP, MP. “For an island with more golf courses per square mile than anywhere else in the world, this tournament will showcase Bermuda as a world-class golf destination.”
“The PGA Grand Slam of Golf marks a new chapter in its history by visiting the beautiful island of Bermuda, which is no stranger to hosting the finest players in the game,” said PGA of America President Brian Whitcomb. “What remains constant is that this event features the game’s stiffest entry requirement and is a treat for fans and players. We look forward with great excitement to presenting the PGA Grand Slam of Golf in Bermuda.”
