The Vidanta Celebrity Invitational Golf Tournament will take place October 13-15, 2016 in the Riviera Nayarit at the new Greg Norman Golf Course and the revamped Jack Nicklaus Golf Course, both at Vidanta Nuevo Vallarta.
“Welcome to this grand tournament that serves to officially inaugurate the new Greg Norman course in Vidanta,” said Marc Murphy, Managing Director of the Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau. “This competition is a wonderful occasion because it brings together several elements that are terrific for the Riviera Nayarit: celebrities, golf, nature and luxury.”
This is an opportunity to play golf paired with one of over 20 celebrities from the United States, including two-time MLB champion, Tim Wakefield; NBA legend, Ray Allen; or ex-NFL defense tackle, Warren Sapp, who was inducted in the hall of fame in 2013.
There will be US$50,000 in cash and in-kind prizes. The prizes (per team) for net and gross scores are: US$5,000 for first place, US$3,000 for second place and US$1,500 for third place.
Those who make a hole-in-one in holes #5 at the Greg Norman course and #8 at the Jack Nicklaus course will receive a new golf cart, but the top prizes are at holes #17 (Greg Norman) and #12 (Jack Nicklaus) where winners will each take home a brand new Mercedes Benz.
All Par 3 shots that come closest to the hole will take home US$500. The 10 winners of each of the closest shots will play for another close shot at hole #3 (Greg Norman) for a US$5,000 prize.
