They will kick off the tournament this week with golf clinics and a long drive exhibition by Atlanta-based professional Maurice Allen.
Now in its seventh year, the OCEAN Style Fashion Showcase Weekend, of which the Golf Weekend now forms an integral part, will bring its golf tournaments to White Witch and Cinnamon Hill courses in Rose Hall in October.
The two tournaments that comprise the OCEAN Style Celebrity Golf Weekend are the Anthony Anderson Golf Classic, which will feature individual golfers going head-to-head, while the OCEAN Style Celebrity Golf Invitational will feature teams of four.
This year the OCEAN Style tournaments will be launched with complimentary long drive clinics and skill exhibitions by long drive professional Maurice Allen.
As the Guinness World Record holder states: these “golf clinics will be different from anything experienced on the island…I want to make golf fun for everyone from the diehard golfer to the person that’s never picked up a club before. Golf is an amazing sport that can help everyone in their day-to-day life, and I just want to spread that love for the game to everyone that I come in contact with.”
The OCEAN Style Golf Clinic ‘Let it Rip’ with Maurice Allen at the Constant Spring Golf Club will be held on Friday from 4:00 – 5:00 pm. It is to be followed by a golf exhibition and ‘playalong’ from 5:00 – 7:00 pm. Golfers and their non-golfing counterparts will have an opportunity to chip and putt in their way to prizes in the playalong.
On Saturday ‘Let it Rip’ moves to Cinnamon Hill, Montego Bay, to be held from 9:00 am – 10:00 am. To participate in the clinics, golfers are asked to contact the Constant Spring Golf Club at 924-1610 or the Cinnamon Hill Golf Pro Shop at Cinnamon Hill 953-2984 or email@example.com.
“Every year we look for ways to improve and innovate our weekend. We are delighted to host Maurice Allen and add this extra dimension to our annual golf event” stated Douglas Gordon, Editor-In-Chief, OCEAN Style Magazine.
This year the tournament boasts some top-notch prizes from the US$1-million Hole in One prize to a private jet membership with JetSmarter.com. About the prizes on offer this year, Gordon stated, “Our objective is to continuously push the envelope — to push ourselves to bigger and better and to expand and surpass the expectations of our guests. We are delighted with the prizes we have secured thus far and are working on a number of other prizes which we feel will excite and suitably reward our golfers.”
