See report from the tournament
This will be the 20th Anniversary of our popular tournament as a Polonia World Championship. As golf became an Olympic sport our tournament will be run fifth time under the full patronage of Polish Olympic Committee who are celebrating 100th anniversary this year. Our tournament right from the beginning started at really high level. Clubs like Polo Golf & Country Club, The Breakers East & West, The Tesoro Club & PGA Village made big difference in developing and maintaining Polonia Open by Zywiec at very prestigious level.
Then again very successful years 2011-2015 tournaments at The Fountains Country Club, 2016 at Heron Bay where the Honda Classic used to take place, 2017 at Jacaranda GC and 2018 back to Palm Beach area to well-known private club The Fountains. But that’s not it. Last year we played at fully renovated Fountains CC and belonging to the same owners, private club INDIAN SPRING CC.
We had a tough task in front of deciding what club to select for the 20th anniversary of the Polonia Open. After the discussions with the Trump Organization and getting BLUE MONSTER for our final round in the package, the choice was obvious. Every year we strive to make each tournament special, and the 20th will be even more special. This year we will be sending personal invitations to all the previous participants of Polonia Open. Those who played Polonia Open tournament during the past 19 years, we think deserve to have a chance to be with all of us to celebrate our 20th Anniversary at the amazing Trump National Doral Miami.
We already have confirmation from a lot of previous participants and very prominent celebrities to show up at 2020 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, business, movies and entertainment. The Tournament will be played on three championship courses: Silver Fox, Red Tiger and final round on the BLUE MONSTER course.
Players will be competing in both Open Gross and Net as well as Mid-Amateur (35+) Senior (50+) and Super Senior (60+). Thanks to this system players from all over the world will be able to compete as equals (Eligibility and Format coming soon). Start as a “shotgun” for the first 2 rounds and the final round will be played at set “tee times” according to the scores after 2 rounds. Same as during the most recent tournaments, there will be no “CUT” for the final round. All players will be playing throughout including Saturday. The winners in all categories, Gross, Net, Mid-Amateur and Seniors aside from the winning prizes will also receive the prestigious PKOL Crystal Medals & Championship Jackets as Polonia’s World Golf Champions
