MONTEGO BAY, Jamaica, January 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Sandals Emerald Bay hosted the Bahamas Great Exuma Classic – the first PGA Web.com Tour event of the year – from January 10-16, across its 500 acres on the unspoiled island of Great Exuma.

Marty Dou was named winner after conquering one of the most renowned courses in the world, the Sandals Emerald Bay Golf Course. Designed by golf legend Greg Norman, the award-winning Sandals Emerald Bay Golf Course is recognized as the longest and one of the most scenic 18-hole, par 72 ocean-side golf courses in the Caribbean.

Greg NormanGreg Norman (pictured) played the 18-hole course he designed alongside Web.com players and golf enthusiasts in the Pro-Am before the professional Web.com Tour kicked off on Sunday, January 13, with Greg Norman’s ceremonial tee shot. While the players enjoyed the beautiful weather and challenging fairways, spectators with the Presidential Pro-Am Players Package were provided with a Golf Channel All-Access Pass, which included a behind-the-scenes production tour during live TV coverage of the Web.com Tour.

Web.com players also had the opportunity to join up with the Sandals Foundation – the philanthropic arm of Sandals Resorts International – to make a meaningful contribution to the local community. Ryan Brehm and Michael Johnson attended a Reading Road Trip excursion at Roker’s Point Primary School, where they read with local children, while Rico Hoey and Paul Imondi helped local children perfect their swings at a Nelson’s Rangers golf clinic.
