- 3 countries, 96 players, 18 holes, 1 cup; the honor of being the best nation on the bay will be in play on March 14th at the Flamingos Golf Club.
Mexico, the United States and Canada will vie for top spot in North America during the third CANAMEX International Riviera Nayarit Cup, the only one of its kind in the world.
Each of the three teams will be comprised of 32 players, men and women, who will confront the challenges of all 18 holes as they play for the cup on March 14th at the Flamingos Golf Club. The player that makes the hole-in-one will win US$5,000.
“Holding this tournament during this time of the year was an excellent idea, as this is the season when we see the greatest number of U.S. and Canadian residents who, together with the Mexicans, are our natural market. What better than to set up a friendly competition so they can enjoy some time together? I think this is why the event has been so successful,” commented Silvia Duarte, Groups and Events Manager for the Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau.
Regarding the foreign participants, it’s interesting to note that 50% of them reside here and the other half flew in for the tournament.
The scenery, the climate, the infrastructure, the services and the natural surroundings offered by the Riviera Nayarit—among other attractions—, make this destination a unique spot for practicing a sport that’s been around since the 15th century.
“Sporting Events” rank third behind “Rest and Relaxation” and “Meetings and Conventions” as a motive for travel for visitors to the Riviera Nayarit, which is why the Groups department focuses its efforts on making said events as successful as possible.
