West Palm Beach, Florida, United States: Greg Norman will serve as the Global Golf Ambassador for all of Sandals Resorts’ premier golf destinations spanning three islands.
These include Sandals Emerald Bay in Exuma, Bahamas, Sandals Golf Club at Sandals Regency La Toc, Sandals St Lucia Golf and Country Club at Cap Estate in St Lucia and Sandals Golf and Country Club in Ocho Rios, Jamaica.
In his new and expanded role, Norman will appear in strategic marketing campaigns for Sandals Resorts across print, digital and social media, as well as through personal appearances and special events for the Luxury Included resort company and its golf destinations.
Furthermore, Greg Norman Golf Course Design (GNGCD) has collaborated with Sandals Resorts to completely redesign Sandals St Lucia Golf & Country Club at Cap Estate.
The remastered 18-hole, par-71 layout boasts dramatic elevation changes with undulating greens backdropped by the lush Caribbean vegetation of St Lucia and the island’s natural beauty.
“We can hardly wait to unveil the extraordinary transformation that has taken place at Sandals St Lucia Golf and Country Club at Cap Estate. Our plans include an official ribbon cutting in late summer to commemorate this remarkable design project,” said Adam Stewart, Executive Chairman of Sandals Resorts International.
Sandals is home to four courses across three islands within the Caribbean, including two courses sculpted by Greg Norman Golf Course Design, a Full Business Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.
Additionally, Norman will also serve in an advisory role and provide tactical direction for the niche golf and travel market to bring world-class golfing experiences to Sandals Resorts for players at every skill level.
“It is almost unheard of for one hotelier to have so many premier and exotic pieces of Caribbean real estate, prime for world-class golf courses, catering to guests from all over the world. My good friends at Sandals have done just that, and it is an honour to be asked by the Stewart family to officially represent all of these properties,” said Norman.
“Already renowned as the name behind the world’s only five-star luxury included resorts, I am confident that our expanded partnership will amplify the Sandals Resorts golf experience and further set them apart.”
