Golf

The tournament will be held in Orlando, Florida, the golf capital of the world. The city owes its standing to several factors. According to www.floridagolf.com, “there are 123 courses within a 45-minute drive of downtown” Orlando. The climate is ideal, “with an average annual temperature of 72.4 degrees Fahrenheit,” and winters which resemble summers of many northern cities of the USA. Orlando also holds a number of important golfing events, such as the Arnold Palmer Invitational, the PGA Show (one of golf’s biggest exhibitions in the world, if not the biggest), and previously the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals Classic at Walt Disney. Adding to the standing of Orlando in the world of golf is the 24/7 television channel, the Golf Channel, which covers the sport overall.

Finally, Orlando is home to some of the world’s best golf players such as Bubba Watson, Justin Rose, Graeme McDowell, Ian Poulter, Henrik Stenson, previously Tiger Woods, Sergio Garcia, Ernie Els, and many more.
All these reasons make Orlando the golf capital it is and support the organization of a high-level international amateur golf tournament.
