Too Cold? St. Kitts Might Be The Answer

With much of North America, especially the eastern seaboard of the United States, gripped in an unusual cycle of winter storms the level of email we receive regarding warm destinations has increased dramatically this week.

Because of that I have a few suggestions of where golfers can get away from the snowfall but one really stands out.

Plenty of golfers are also sporting enthusiasts so what if you were able to get in touch with golf and professional sport icons and glorious weather in a single location.  Yep, I figured you would like that.

So if you can find the time between shoveling I suggest that you considering giving the The St. Kitts Marriott Resort a call and inquiring about the 5th Annual Legends Golf Classic.  The five day event will take place from April 21 – 25, 2010. It features two days of championship golf hosted by all-star athletes at the resorts Royal St. Kitts Golf Club, considered to be among the nest courses in the Caribbean.

The co-hosts for this year’s tournament will be Super Bowl Champion Bruce Smith alongside MLB pitcher David Stewart.  They will be joined by a bevy of other former and well-recognized athletes. Past attendees have included pro-football Hall of Fame champion, Lawrence Taylor; Baseball Hall of Famer Ozzie Smith; former Miami Heat player and Championship NBA star Alonzo Mourning; and pro-football legend Jim Kelly, among others.

In honour of the event, the St. Kitts Marriott Resort is offering a special Legends golf package, which includes accommodations for four nights; along with a practice golf round; entry to the Legends Golf Classic where each foursome will be paired with a celebrity; two invitations to the Opening Gala; two seats at the coveted Awards Dinner; and two invitations to the Beach Bash.  Breakfast and lunch are also included on days of the practice round and tournament.  Rates start at (USD) $999 per room, based on double occupancy.

In addition to the celebrity filled golf tournament, the event will also include a Texas Hold’em Tournament of Stars held onsite at The Royal Beach Casino, the largest Vegas-style casino in the Caribbean.  A silent auction and festivities such as the Grand Awards Ceremony and the 5th Annual Legend’s Beach Bash will round out the week.

Over the course of the tournament, participants will have the opportunity to golf alongside celebrity athletes at St. Kitts Marriott Resort’s on-site Royal St. Kitts Golf Club, which boasts an 18-hole, 71-par championship “links”-style course. Named “Leading Golf Resort, St. Kitts & Nevis” at the 2008 World Travel Awards, the lush 125-acre course features holes on both the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea and dramatic views of neighboring islands. It was redesigned by renowned Canadian architect Thomas McBroom just a few years ago to much acclaim.
