(CNS): The Cayman Islands Golf Association (CIGA) has selected the national team to represent the country at the 55th Caribbean Amateur Tournament at Millennium Lakes Golf & Country Club in Trinidad next month. Players competed over six rounds to qualify, with the top players in each division being selected for the team. Nine countries from across the Caribbean will compete at Millennium’s par 71 layout. This course requires a great deal of skills to manage the deep bunkering and lakes that are scattered throughout. Samantha Widmer, from the women’s team and defending Caribbean Amateur golf champion, said it was the premiere  tournament in the Caribbean attracting the best players.

Representing Cayman on the men’s team are s Jason Perras, Serge Berube, Jason Lovelock, Adam Nashed, Philip Wight. While alongside Widmer, Isabel Lawson and Emily Ribbins have made it to the women's team. Meanwhile the mid-amateur team  (aged 35 and over) Joel Dodson, Michael Wight will be competing and the senior team (aged 50 and over) consists of  Tracy Moore and Paul Woodhouse.

Widmer added that sponsor  KPMG for the event which taks place 1-8 august was giving the island's best players the opportunity to excel.  “We are very grateful for their support and are looking forward to representing the island and KPMG this coming August," she said.
