About Polonia Open Tournament

The original tournament was organized by a group of Polish-American sports fans associated with the Riverdale Tennis of New York and the Polish American Golf Association (PAGA). Initially, it was primarily a tennis event, bringing together famous players. The accompanying golf games played an increasingly important role to gain equal status after two years. In 2004, the golf tournament – organized by the current PAGA president Paweł Gąsior, gathered 120 players, optimal for organizational reasons.

The jubilee 20th Polonia Open will take place in an extremely prestigious location – Trump National Doral Golf Club, the final round of the competition will take place on the famous Blue Monster course.

Players about the Polonia Open tournament

Jan Englert

Golfers – the only Poles who improve themselves and not others! Thanks for the meetings at which we remind ourselves that we are still able to like each other a little.

Zbigniew Boniek

I participated in the Polonia Open and I remember the friendly atmosphere and great organization. The organizers have made every effort to ensure that everything is hooked up and that is why the tournament enjoys unchanging popularity and has an excellent brand.

Jerzy Dudek

Super tournament, nice atmosphere, here you can meet Poles from almost all over the world.

Andrzej Person

20 years ago a young and … slim man from Manhattan informed our golf association in Warsaw that Poles are playing golf after the Great Water. And that I would support this idea. I signed a little agreement with my soul on my shoulder. And in this way Warsaw with its patronage added a brick to the most important golf idea among the countrymen in the world..

Tadeusz Drozda

I have been associated with the Polonia Open tournament almost from the beginning. I was always impressed with his momentum. I once talked to one of the managers of the field where the tournament was taking place. He was amazed. Something like that has never been with them – more than 150 golfers in shirts of equal national colors shocked him and other club members.

Mariusz Czerkawski

Great memories and a large dose of adrenaline, especially in such an important golf tournament. Demanding and well-maintained fields on which tournaments were played testify to their rank. Always a nice and friendly atmosphere and the opportunity to meet Poles from around the world.
