Our own Darwin Escapes golf team came 3rd at the prestigious Wyndham Pro-Am Tournament in the USA!
The Wyndham Championship Tournament was founded in 1938 and is the sixth oldest event on the PGA Tour, with a rich 77-year history. Taking place at the beautiful Sedgefield Country Club, in Greensboro, North Carolina, which was also the original host of the tournament in the 1930’s. In 2007 the club and grounds underwent a $3 million restoration project, creating a 70 par, 7000-yard course, which is perfect for the modern-day PGA Tour.
The Louis DeJoy & Aldona Z Wos Family Foundation Pro-Am tournament is hugely popular, and this year we were lucky enough to have our very own Darwin Escapes team taking part! With Chris Lilienthal and Simon Altham of Hoseasons helping out, our own Anthony Esse (Director), Lindsey Bamford (MD) and Shaun Roberts (Group Sales) all played in the tournament. Our team were partnered with the fantastic (and friendly!) Emilliano Grillo, who ranks 86 in the FedEx Cup! (No pressure…)
