Third Annual Butterfield Bermuda Championship Commences

Monday, October 25th marked the first day of the third annual Butterfield Bermuda golf championship at Port Royal golf course.

According to tournament director Justin Belanger, the tournament is a SafeKey event and all staff, volunteers and spectators will be required to show their SafeKey certificate alongside a government-issued ID before entering tournament grounds.

“ This year’s tournament will feature such greats as Danny Willett and Patrick Reed,” Mr. Belanger said. “ We are also excited to have Bermudians who qualified such as Kamiko Smith, Michael and Danny Sims, Brian Morris and Chaka DeSilva.”

Tomorrow (October 26) will serve as an opportunity for PGA professionals to practice for the weekend and to get to know the golf course and individual holes a bit better. The Am-am competition will also be tomorrow at the Mid-Ocean club, followed by the official Pro-am on Wednesday October 27.

In the Pro-am, guests will get to play with two PGA tour professionals. The competition rounds will begin on Thursday, October 28 and will conclude on Sunday, October 31. The first tee-offs are around 7:35 am on all four days and gates will open at 7:05 am.

“ The team is certainly keeping a close eye on the radar. It looks like it might be a little windy and rainy, but we are ready for it and look forward to hosting everybody,” Mr. Belanger said. “ I would advise spectators to bring a rain jacket and/or a light windbreaker when they come out here.”

All four days of the competition will be broadcast live on the Golf Channel. For more information about the event, course maps and more, people can visit
