National Cancer Golf Scramble

The National Cancer Scramble, held on Sunday, May 7, proved to be a tremendous success as 92 golfers gathered on the pristine greens of Royal Turks and Caicos Golf Club to raise funds for the Turks and Caicos Cancer Society. The event brought together golf enthusiasts from across the region, combining a passion for the sport with a commitment to fighting cancer. With 23 teams participating and generous sponsorship, over $20,000 was raised, showcasing the power of community support in making a difference.

The tournament featured an impressive display of skill and determination, with each golfer contributing to the cause. The team comprising Graham Canham, Murad Mohamad, Syed Hassan, and Vaughan Paisley emerged as the champions, posting a remarkable net score of 54.88. Their achievement symbolizes both the spirit of competition and the shared goal of supporting those affected by cancer.

Additionally, the National Cancer Scramble was not only a fundraising success but also a fun-filled tournament that kept participants engaged and entertained throughout the day. The event organizers incorporated unique and exciting rules on various holes, adding an element of unpredictability to the competition.  For example the 3rd where participants were limited to using only a single golf club throughout the entire play. It sparked laughter, camaraderie, and friendly banter among the teams as they strategized and made the best of their limited options.

In addition to the competitive aspect, the event highlighted outstanding individual performances. Kurt Rivers stood out with an extraordinary drive, winning the title of the longest drive among the male participants. Michelle Patterson, hit the longest drive among the female participant, and Owen Barkworth displayed exceptional talent, clinching the title of the longest drive among the junior participants.

Beyond the on-course achievements, the success of the National Cancer Scramble can be attributed to the overwhelming support of sponsors who generously contributed to the event. Their support demonstrates a shared commitment to combatting cancer and providing vital resources for the Turks and Caicos Cancer Society.

The funds raised through this event will be instrumental in supporting the Turks and Caicos Cancer Society’s ongoing efforts to improve cancer awareness, provide vital services to those affected by the disease, and contribute to advancements in cancer research. The impact of this generous contribution will be felt throughout the community, ensuring that individuals battling cancer receive the care and support they need.

2022 11th Annual Wine Cellar Golf & Fishing Tournament

The 11th Annual Wine Cellar Golf & Fishing Tournament (WCGFT) took place March 10th through the 13th resulting in an enormous success!

Thursday kicked the tournament off with the Calcutta at Simone’s Bar & Grill where captains entered a friendly bidding war for rights of their respective vessels. Over the next two mornings fifteen boats set out from Leeward Cut in a mad dash to their favourite fishing spots. It was rough going both fishing days, but the excitement remained the same with the eventual fish auction offering the opportunity to purchase fresh Tuna, Mahi Mahi, and Wahoo at phenomenal prices. #19 Restaurant and Bar also got in on the act, purchasing a Wahoo for the restaurant.

The presentation ceremony followed, and the night featured the DJ playing all the favorites resulting in dancing, and tall fish tales about the “one that got away.”

Sunday afternoon’s Golf Tournament at Royal Turks & Caicos Golf Club was the highlight for all golf enthusiasts as an exciting round of 18-holes was framed with a perfect day of weather. The presentation ceremony followed with the top players awarded prizes ranging from trophies and golf bags to fine champagne or gift certificates. The traditional raffle draw took place with three amazing prizes up for grabs. A Breitling Endurance Pro watch (Jai’s), Dinner for 4 under the stars with complimentary wine (Bay Bistro), and Dinner for 4 Show/Buffet/Disco (Club Med).

The mission of the Turks and Caicos Islands Football Association has always been to help the local community through its youth development football programs which are based on Providenciales, Grand Turk, South Caicos and North/Middle Caicos. With over 600 registered children there is a need for funds to fuel these programs. The 12th Annual Golf Scramble and Silent Auction took place on November 3rd and saw a new headline sponsor in the form of Scotiabank. Not only did they play the critical role as headline sponsor, but Scotiabank fielded a team led by Andy Dickson, Commercial Banking Manager, Scotiabank Turks and Caicos.

“At Scotiabank we believe in football!” said Curtis Knight, Country Head, Scotiabank Turks & Caicos. “Football has the unique ability to connect people all over the world. We also believe in the power of football as a vehicle for social change. We are committed to helping the communities that we serve to become better off. For this reason, Scotiabank is proud to support the Turks & Caicos Islands Football Association which engages youth across our islands giving them the opportunity to learn both football and the important life skills that team sports impart.”

The champion team of the day was comprised of Andrea Todd, Brooke Rivers, Blair Mason, and Dale Hodgkins who won in a tiebreaker with the net score of 54. Second place also at 54 was the team of Carol Brown, Chris Haggie, Mark Bowden and Simon Dobbs while third place was captured by Ernest Gardiner, Gervin Simmons, Marc Rawlins and Mike Flynn only a fraction back.

The International Team

The Provo Golf Ryder Cup, sponsored by Turks & Caicos Sotheby’s International Realty, witnessed another International Team victory by the large margin of 22.5 to 13.5. Team International retained control of the coveted cup during the two-day event which saw 48 golfers compete in the member favorite match play format. The conclusive win extended the International Team’s dominance to 19 to 8 over the impressive 27-year history as they now have a three-year win streak. Captain Graham Malyan and his Assistant Christina Pretorius led the Internationals who found themselves ahead 7.5 to 4.5 after the Saturday best ball format. The North American Captains, Rick Sanmiya and Josh Germain, were confident of a Sunday comeback however the International Team had different ideas winning Sunday’s singles matches handily (15 to 9) resulting in the nine-point victory.

The Provo Ryder Cup enjoyed wonderful golf course conditions, while the captains did a terrific job creating a competitive but fun atmosphere.

Each year the Provo Ryder Cup is eagerly anticipated, and the event kicked off with a lively Wednesday pairings party where the Captains set the stage for all 36 matches. Captain Pretorius helped Captain Malyan in a combined effort while Captain Sanmiya and recently crowned Club Champion Josh Germain matched strategy with the International team. Although a true team event it should be noted that the following twelve players captured a perfect 2 points by winning both their matches; Mary Eddy, Carol Brown, Brooke Rivers, Jim Gefucia, Ted Bayley, Grant Noble, Gregg Rivers, Gervin Simmons, Craig James, Martin Dawtry, Roberto Stipa, and Jo Pretorius.

Provo Golf Club, the Team Captain’s, and players would like to thank headline sponsor Joe Zahm of Turks & Caicos Sotheby’s International Realty for making the weekend a huge success. Sotheby’s has been intricately involved for the last seven years. Team North America will need to regroup as the International Team seems “INVINCIBLE” clearly ruling the Turks & Caicos golf scene! Perhaps Joe’s son Dylan Zahm will be ready to play for the North American team next year now that he has taken up this great game.

19th Annual Jadot Cup

19th Annual Jadot Cup Raises $16,000 For Turks & Caicos Aids Awareness Foundation (TCAAF)

On Sunday, June 2nd, ironically nineteen teams took part in the TCAAF’s 19th Annual Jadot Cup as this year it enjoyed another rowdy crowd creating fun for all in attendance many of whom stayed late into the evening at Fairways Bar & Grill in an effort to change their scores while discussing golf swing theory. Eventually clear-headedness won out as Jadot Cup Chairman and TCAAF Director Terry Drummey announced that “The 19th Annual Jadot Cup was a great tournament resulting in a “funtastic” event which featured an amazing Friday dinner at OPUS Restaurant. We would like to thank everyone for their continued support!” Congratulations to the winning team members; Tony Garland, Mike Flynn, Gervin Simons, and Tom Adams. Terry then added, “An additional special thank you to all the companies that donated and to The Wine Cellar, Opus, Provo Golf Club with all their staff members who again made the weekend a huge success.”

Each year the Jadot weekend helps to raise awareness of the TCAAF and assists with funds towards its flagship project – the Edward Gartland Youth Centre in downtown, Providenciales. The Centre is open to young people age 10-18 and has registered an impressive 2000 plus youth. Funds raised by TCAAF assists the Youth Centre with their various extracurricular programs for the many who frequent the centre. Making a difference in the lives of the youth in the Turks & Caicos Islands through the various programs, including volleyball, basketball, tennis, arts & crafts, computers, and dance to name a few, is very rewarding. We would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to our silent auction and hole sponsors at the 2019 Jadot Cup. This combined effort made it a huge success.

“About the TCAAF”
