The resulting tournament was a lot of fun, as members of the San Nicholas Golf Club arrived at Divi Links to meet and challenge the Links Ladies, in their new uniforms.
The event was sponsored by Neutrogena skin care products, imported to the island by Manrique Capriles & Sons. Romar Trading introduced an elegant new drink, Nuvo, the world’s first sparkling liqueur as the welcome drink and the celebration toast at the awards presentation, says Tabitha Fecunda, Island Marketing & Promotion Manager, The Links at Divi Aruba.
The Aruba Golf Club, in San Nicolas, is the oldest golf course on the island, while Divi Links is the newest. The first one was founded in 1939, while Divi Links, a 9-hole golf course, opened in 2004 with a gala party and charity golf tournament, attended by Prince Albert of Monaco, Prince Pieter Christiaan of the Netherlands, and Aruba’s Prime Minister. While Divi Links is lush and green and surrounded by luxurious private villas and tropical lagoons, the San Nicholas course is a unique desert golf course.
