Bermuda’s Port Royal Golf Course, home of the PGA Grand Slam of Golf, is offering a half-off deal to visitors who compete in their twice-weekly tournaments at the course.
The Bermuda Department of Tourism and the course created the Port Royal Visitor Tournaments, with competitions every Monday and Thursday through March 31. Participants get 50 percent off green fees, including carts, chopping the cost to $90 per person.
Prizes go to the top three golfers in each tourney and the winner gets a commemorative victory certificate and prize from the pro shop. All tourneys are played using the Calloway system, which allows all levels of players, with or without handicap, to compete together. The events run from 8:30 a.m. to noon.
The program coincides with Bermuda’s “Compliments of Bermuda” promotion featuring destination-wide savings of every third night free on hotel stays at participating properties. Bookings are going on now through March 12, for travel Nov. 15 through March 15 of next year. Visit http://www.bermudatourism.com for more info.
Port Royal Golf Club, a Robert Trent Jones-designed course, underwent a recent $15 million renovation and is the longest course in Bermuda, at 6,842 yards. For information, visit http://www.portroyalgolf.bm or call 441-234-0974.
