ANGUILLA – The St. Maarten Golf Team was crowned the 2015 Champion of the annual 3 country golf tournament between Anguilla, St. Martin and St. Maarten. After 5 years, the 20 member St. Maarten Team finally succeeded in winning this prestigious cup.
The tournament that was held in Stableford format took place at the Greg Norman designed Golf Course at Cuisinart Golf Resort in Anguilla and was a true battle that went right down to the wire. When all scores were added up only 1 point separated champions St. Maarten who scored 555 points, with runner up St. Martin who scored 554 points. Anguilla took 3rd place with a total of 532 points.
With a golf course in pristine condition, blue skies and light winds, all ingredients were there for good scores. The 20 member St. Maarten Golf team led by Captain Keith Graham rose to the occasion and scored more points than any of the winning teams in previous years. The top scorers on the St. Maarten team were Marc Grenouilleau (40 points), Marc van Iersel (38 points), Rodney Tackling (35 points) and Howard Hobgood (34 points).
A special thanks goes out to the Cuisinart Golf Club and their Golf Staff that in collaboration with the Anguilla Golf Association once again, organized a wonderful and flawless event. After the fierce battle all teams enjoyed a delightful lunch in great camaraderie at the Golf Course.
