UXBRIDGE, ON— On Sunday evening 80 GAO members from around the province arrived home from a wonderful week at the 3rd Annual GAO Invitational at Sandals Emerald Bay in Exuma, Bahamas.
The GAO Invitational is a fun and friendly three-day competition for all members of the GAO, which has been running since 2012. This year the weather was great, the course was in fantastic shape and the group of golfers were amazing.
“I couldn’t have asked for a nicer group of people to travel with,” stated Kyle McFarlane, GAO Director of Marketing & Communications. “We had a great week with great people. There were a lot of new friendships made over the course of the week, which was amazing to see.”
The group arrived in Exuma on November 2 and had unlimited access to the golf course for the entire week. The competition got under way on Wednesday morning with a Modified Chapman Format event. The couples then played a Net Team Stableford format on Thursday and a Net Better Ball format on Friday. The event culminated with a wonderful awards dinner on the Friday evening.
This was the third year the GAO has taken a group down to Sandals Emerald Bay and based on the feedback it will not be the last. Details about the 2015 trip are currently being worked out and the 4th Annual GAO Invitational will surely be another sell out.
