The Pro-Am event format was a Captains Choice/Scramble Format with each team led by a Golf Professionals from UK or Bermuda.
The event was arranged as the culmination of a five (5)-night Fam Trip to learn about Bermuda and meet our people and to foster greater links between Bermuda and the United Kingdom, with the true impetus for our initiative is to grow tourism in the winter months when the weather in the UK is dreadfully cold.

I am pleased to share that because of the collective cooperation from varying stakeholders the Bermuda Triangle Bucks/Berks/Ox PGA FAM Trip was a huge success. Our five (5) nights FAM Trip included golf at Belmont, Port Royal, Ocean View, Turtle Hill & Mid Ocean, who all offered courtesy of the respective golf courses to our visiting golf professionals.
We are most grateful for the collaborative support provided by:- Bermuda Tourism Authority (BTA), Newstead Belmont Hills Resort Bermuda Government Golf Courses which made to all possible. In addition, our FAM Trip included a welcome cocktail party at the home of Alun & Kim Hughes overlooking Harrington Sound followed by dinner at Rustico and a closing intimate Pro Am tournament at Port Royal Golf Couse involving persons the contingent had met during the week followed by a dinner, wrap up speeches and prize presentation.
Now all efforts are geared towards planning events for Bermuda in 2024 and beyond while selling spreading the good news about Bermuda.
