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.
PGA 2023 Honda Classic
Guests and players of the Polonia Open by Żywiec tournament had the opportunity to visit the 2023 PGA Honda Classic tournament where our compatriot Adrian Meronk took part in it for the first time ever. He finished the tournament with a great result tied for14th place. We had the opportunity to meet him after final round and he gave us couple of golf gadgets with his autograph, which were raffled off at the final dinner and awards ceremony of this year’s Polonia Open by Żywiec. Thank you very much and we keep our fingers crossed for good results on the next PGA Tour tournaments (Dell Technologies Match Play, The Masters, PGA Championship etc).

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