BERMUDA, December 7, 2010 – The Fairmont Southampton and Bacardi International announce Bacardi National Par-3 Championship, a two-day, 36-hole championship golf tournament to be played at The Fairmont Southampton March 26-27, 2011. A Pro-Am will be played on Friday, March 25.  The annual tournament, now in its second year, benefits Bermuda Red Cross.

The Bacardi National Par-3 Championship is open to amateur and professional golfers and is sanctioned by the Bermuda Golf Association (BGA) and the Professional Golfers’ Association of Bermuda (BPGA). A Professional Men’s and Ladies’ Division and an Amateur Men’s and Ladies’ Division will be played.

“Fairmont is pleased to partner with Bacardi International Limited on this second annual golf event,” said Anthony Mocklow, Director of Golf at The Fairmont Southampton. “Bermuda has many high-calibre golf courses and, among them, the par-3 course at The Fairmont Southampton. Creating tournaments like the Bacardi National Par-3 Championship will help us to energise Bermuda’s golf community and give golfers a reason to come to Bermuda. In this second year, we expect the tournament to grow over last year, with both local and international participants.”

“Bacardi is once again delighted to be sponsoring the Bacardi National Par-3 Championship,” says Michael Brennan, Vice President Finance and Corporate Controller, Bacardi Limited. “Golf is a national pastime in Bermuda and supporting this tournament is a great way for Bacardi to get involved in the community. We know golfers really enjoyed the excellent conditions of the par-3 course at The Fairmont Southampton last year and we’re looking forward to another high-calibre tournament in 2011.”

Last year’s professional winners – Men’s National Par 3 Champion Daniel Augustus and Ladies National Par 3 Champion Susan Bond – will return to defend their titles.  As a Bermuda Golf Association and Professional Golfers’ Association of Bermuda-sanctioned event, tournament players will receive national qualifications points.
