This will be the 17th year of our popular tournament as a Polonia World Championship. As golf become again an Olympic sport last year our tournament will be run second time under the full patronage of Polish Olympic Committee.
After very successful 2011 - 2016 tournaments at The Fountains Country Club and last year at Heron Bay Golf Club, the decision was really tough but We decided to move up again closer to Miami area. The Jacaranda Golf Club & Sheraton Suits Hotel looks like to be the kind of place all of us have been looking for.. Friendly, looks seemingly easy but both golf courses very challenging. 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 two Jacaranda Championship courses (East & West). 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 Crystal Medals & 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 2017 tournament to be one of the really unique. The tournament committee may set a limit of entries. Since the tournament was moved last year towards the first week of March, we expect that it will be easier to book your Airline tickets. The Tournament Committee already negotiated special prices at the Sheraton Suits Plantation hotel ( reservation link ). Please check the Web Site daily for News and other information.
