In an ongoing effort to support the travel agent community and to show its continued appreciation for agents, Sandals Resorts recently hosted 70 travel agents from the United States, Canada and Latin America at the 1st Annual Global Travel Agent Golf Tournament in Great Exuma, Bahamas. The two-day tournament took place over May 13-16, 2016 at Sandals Emerald Bay, featuring an award-winning 18-hole, par 72 championship golf course of up to 7,000 yards.
The teams participated in a four man best ball scramble with the lowest score being the winner. In addition to the two-day tournament, agents participated in skills completion including the "longest drive" contest, which was won by Guillermo Nakada and Alejandra Madrid.
The events of this golf tournament were co-sponsored by the Ministry of Tourism for the Bahamas and were represented by Angelika Cartwright, the District Sales Manager for Golf, and Virginia Kelly the Director of Sports Tourism Development.
The tournament winners were team No. 2, which consisted of Jay Dill, Rebecca Dill, Roland Farrar and April Farrar. The weekend’s host, General Manager Jeremy Mutton, welcomed the travel agents for a sunset cocktail party on the 15th hole.
