5th Annual Antigua Invitational to be played at Grayhawk
Antigua Group, Inc. announces the 5th Annual Antigua Invitational.
The 5th Annual Antigua Invitational will be played at the renowned Grayhawk Golf Club on Friday, September 7, 2018. This invitational brings together the golf community in Arizona pairing a club professional and amateurs in a unique three-person team format – (1 Pro, 2 Ams).
“This event is a great way for Antigua to say ‘Thank-You’ to those who support Antigua”, said Ron McPherson, President and CEO of The Antigua Group. “Like each of our prior years, we’re taking time to remember those lost on 9/11 as well as doing what we can to help the homeless veteran community in Arizona".
Each three-person team will be paired with another, and the groups play in six-balls. The event also has a competition within a tournament featuring members of the Phoenix Thunderbirds (The Waste Management Phoenix Open hosts) squaring off in a Ryder Cup style competition against the Scottsdale Charros (hosts of Spring Training baseball at Scottsdale Stadium). The Thunderbirds are prohibitive favorites, but the real winner is the local charities benefitting from the event.
At the conclusion of golf, all participants will congregate for the famous “Dry Heave” closest to the pin contest, food, drink, music, great camaraderie and awarding of prizes.
