This will be the 16th year of our popular tournament as a Polonia World Championship. As a golf becoming an Olympic sport this year our tournament will be run first time under the full patronage of Polish Olympic Committee.
After 5 years at The Fountains Country Club and a very successful 2011 - 2015 tournaments, the decision was really tough but We decided to move up to the next level. The Heron Bay Golf Club & Marriott Hotel looks like to be the kind of place all of us have been looking for, for many years. Friendly, looks seemingly easy but very challenging golf course. As every year in the past, next tournament will be a Special. We already have confirmation from very prominent celebrities to show up at Polonia Open by Zywiec. We also expect to host the event with many known people from the world of polish and Polonia sports, cultural life, politics, business, movies and entertainment.
The Tournament will be played on Heron Bay Championship course. The players will be competing in both Open Gross and Net as well as Mid Amator (35+) and Senior(50+) . Thanks to this system all players from all over the world will be able to compete as equals. (Check. Eligibility and Format). Start as a "shotgun" for first 2 rounds and the final round "tee times"according to the scores after 2 rounds . As it was in 2014, we WILL NOT IMPLEMENT THE "CUT" for the final round. All players will be playing on Saturday. The winners in all categories, Gross, Net, Mid Amatour and Senior aside from the winning prizes will also receive the prestigious Championship Jackets as Polonia's World Champions.
We strongly suggest not to wait and sign up for the tournament as soon as possible. We expect the 2016 tournament to be one of the most unique. The tournament committee may set a limit of entries. Since the tournament was moved towards the first week of March, we expect that it will be easier to book your Airline tickets and Hotels.
