Top Anguilla resort to host exclusive golf challenge
Press Release 2012
Anguilla (December 21, 2012) - Golfitaliano, in collaboration with CuisinArt Golf Resort & Spa and the Anguilla Tourist Board is pleased to announce the inaugural Golf & Holiday Challenge on the beautiful island of Anguilla in the Caribbean from January 19th to 26th, 2013.
Auspiciously entitled THE EVENT, the week-long tournament will be promoted across social networks to bring together 100 golfers who have been carefully selected from countries across Europe for an exclusive golfing experience with a difference.
Founder of the tournament, Mr Donato Ala notes, ?The idea for THE EVENT was born out of a press trip that was organized for me by the Anguilla Tourist Board?s representative in Italy, Mr Stefano de Paoli.? The island was so beautiful, and the perfect fit for this event which I believed should be very exclusive.?
The idea is that THE EVENT will not just be a championship golf tournament, nor will it be just a holiday. Activities for every day will be completely customized.? From excursions and days devoted to the Spa and culinary classes for non-players, to parties in the best clubs, and exclusive dinners in the four restaurants at CuisinArt Golf Resort & Spa; to the possibility of nautical activities never experienced before, including boating, sailing and deep sea fishing for the most adventurous, the intention is to create a memorable vacation experience set against the backdrop of one of the Caribbean?s most prestigious Golf Resorts.?
General Manager, Mr Stephane Zaharia and? Marcella Giamundo, market representative for Cuisinart Golf Resort & Spa in Italy expressed their pleasure in being a part of the planning process for THE EVENT, working with Mr Ala and the Cuisinart Resort Management team on island to create a ?tailor made?, program with special attention to detail, yet leaving enough free time to allow the participants to be able to ?isolate themselves? and enjoy the island at their leisure.
