Successful 4-day golfing event for the 10th Sheraton Golf Classic TournamentThe Sheraton Fiji Golf & Beach Resort in partnership with Pacific Golf Management held a successful 4-day tournament for the 10th Sheraton Golf Classic. Players were hosted at the Denarau Golf & Racquet Club, home to the South Pacific’s golf course which is a premier 18-hole golf course situated on Denarau Island, including the championship Natadola Bay Golf Course. Participating teams were split into two groups to play over 4 rounds of golf at the premier Golf Courses from the 7th to the 11th of June.

The International Pro-Am tournament marked its 10th anniversary and is the largest golfing competition in Fiji and the South Pacific, attracting over 200 registered golfers at this year’s event. There was a mix of players from Australia, New Zealand and Fiji who converged on Denarau Island to participate in this much anticipated and world-class event, after a lapse of two years with the closure of borders.

Following a successful and eventful 4-days of golfing action, the Sheraton Fiji Golf & Beach Resort hosted the final awards night and gala dinner at Sandy Point, a popular on-site location at the resort for large-scale events. The Gala Dinner and Prize Giving were attended by over 250 guests which included players, organisers, sponsors and hotel associates to celebrate the momentous occasion.

“We are very proud to host the Sheraton Golf Classic tournament for the 10th year, an event that is not only enjoyed by the players but benefits our industry as a whole. I would like to thank Pacific Golf Management Director, Mr Richard Ellis for continuing to choose Fiji to accommodate such a prestigious sporting event. A special acknowledgment is also extended to our sponsors who have supported us again and have been key players in a successful event,” said Neeraj Chadha, Multi-Property Vice President – Fiji & Samoa, Marriott International and General Manager of Westin & Sheraton Resorts, Fiji Complex.

The event was a major success with support from key sponsors and long-term partnerships with Event Organisers, the Pacific Golf Management team in New Zealand including additional support from other local sponsors with plans in the pipeline for a bigger event next year.
