Despite the recent inclement weather, Saint Lucia dominated the Eastern Caribbean Association Amateur Golf Championship (ECGA) which took place on the Sandals Cap Estate Golf and Country Club (SGCC) in Saint Lucia from October 6th – 10th, winning all but considered one of the trophies that were up for grabs.

President of the Saint Lucia Golf Association Mario Reyes was high in praise for the Sandals facility, noting the incontrovertible fact that since the teams were in a position to successfully complete the tournament was a testament to the outstanding condition of the course.

“On behalf of the Saint Lucia Golf Association I would love to thanks and your team, for hosting what has been hailed as one of the best ECGA tournament ever, right here in Saint Lucia in 2022. Food and Beverage Service were exemplary, and the condition of the course despite the weather conditions was nothing short of fantastic. Sunday demonstrated how well the course has been maintained by your team and the power to handle the torrential rain that endured on Sunday. Congratulations again and we look ahead to Sandals Golf and Country Club hosting many more events in partnership with the SLGA”.

His sentiments were echoed by Secretary of the SLGA Habib Chreiki, “Sandals facilitated the needs of the ECGA with enthusiasm, passion, and determination. Firstly the grounds crew brought the course as much as a really high standard despite awful weather conditions, while the staff at club house, from the bar and kitchen to cart barn and pro shop assisted selflessly in establishing the registration desk, sponsor materials, and resources out on the course. But most significantly the hospitality that was offered by all those that represented The SGCC deserves the largest round of applause. Saint Lucian’s and visitors alike might be reminiscing in regards to the endearing treatment they got for years to return.”

Based on General Manager of the Sandals Golf and Country Club Simone Skinner, this is sweet news for the longer term of golf on the island.

“We were really thrilled to host such a tournament. We all know that that is among the finest courses within the region, and the feedback we received not only from the SLGA, but from the Eastern Caribbean Golf Association bore testament to that. The truth is we’re confident that this amazing 18-hole course will soon attract more and even larger tournaments to Saint Lucia, which can profit not only the golf fraternity, however the island as an entire. The Sandals course is certainly putting Saint Lucia on the map as a golfing destination.”

The competing teams included Antigua, St. Kitts, Martinique, St. Maarten, St. Croix and hosts Saint Lucia.
