WILLEMSTAD- 28 July, 2022 – Recently, Curaçao branded the location for all the days of the prestigious golf tournament “Wouwse Pro-Am” in the Netherlands. This year, Curaçao Tourist Board (CTB) is focusing more on the golf niche, by presenting our golf courses during presentations to the high-end niche and sports media, in order to attract more professional and amateur golf players as well as golf sport lovers, to come visit our island.
During the three days of the “Wouwse Pro-Am”, CTB had a stand where the players could take pictures with images of Curaçao and get refreshed with ‘awa di lamunchi’ (lime juice), or get a bottle of water or a shot of a Curaçao rum. One of the tournament days was titled ‘Curaçao Day’, and our Curaçao professional golf player, Jane Weststrate, guided a team which represented Curaçao during the tournament. Jane also competed in the professional women’s tournament.
At the end of the tournament, two amateur winners received complimentary tickets to travel to Curaçao, including accommodations and participation at the 4th annual golf tournament, which will take place in November this year in Curaçao. Furthermore, a raffle winner also received a ticket to Curaçao, including accommodations and a golf pass to be able to play on the three golf courses in Curaçao. CTB gives thanks to Avila Beach Hotel and Renaissance Wind Creek Curaçao Resort for their contribution to the raffle prizes.
