Cuba to host two friendly golf tournaments in October

Cuba could soon become a hot golfing destination as it gets ready to host two tournaments next month.

October will see women and men golf players play friendly games at the 14th annual Hispanic Day Tournament and the 7th annual Melia Cuba Golf Cup.

Both tournaments will take place at the Varadero Golf Club, the only 18-hole golf course in Cuba. The golf course was designed by Les Furber from Canada, with a links design that covers a narrow 3.5 km strip of land on the Hicacos Peninsula.

The Hispanic Day Tournament will take place from 1st to 4th October, 2015, and will feature two-time Masters champion and captain of the winning European Ryder Cup team in 2012, Jose Maria Olazaba. The event will be conducted by the Spanish Embassy in Cuba and is open to professional and amateur players over 16 with certified handicaps under 24 for men and 30 for women.

The seventh annual Melia Cuba Golf Cup will take place on 22nd to 24th October, 2015 and will include divisions for men and women. Players will have the chance to win a free seven-night stay for two at an all-inclusive Melia Cuba hotel.

The Varadero Golf Club is located next to the five-star adults-only Melia Las Americas Resort. The beachfront hotel has freshwater lagoon pools, tropical gardens and facilities including several al fresco dining options, a fitness centre, a beauty salon with spa treatments, tennis courts and a Club House with activities and entertainment.

Melia Hotels International operates approximately 350 hotels in 35 countries around the world under its brands: Melia, Gran Melia, ME by Melia, Paradisus, Innside by Melia, TRYP by Wyndham, Sol Hotels, and Club Melia.

The hotel group has 27 Melia hotels in Cuba in popular destinations including Havana, Varadero, Cayo Largo, Cayo Coco, and Holguin.
