Win Big at Port Royal!

If you read Bermuda Shorts regularly you already know that I’m a huge fan of Port Royal Golf Course (and if you don’t, well, you should read it more often!). Not only does the course boast the greatest hole in golf—the signature 16th, which hugs the turquoise-hued Atlantic coast—but the ocean view eighteen also hosts the prestigious PGA Grand Slam of Golf, a year-ending tournament featuring the winners of the four major championships (the Masters, U.S. Open, British Open and PGA Championship for all of you taking notes). Last year the event was won by three-time major champion Ernie Els who defeated a talented field including U.S. Open Champion Graeme McDowell, PGA Champion Martin Kaymer and 2001 PGA Champion David Toms. And while the annual tournament is broadcast to millions of viewers on TNT, there’s nothing quite like seeing the event in person. Golf fans listen up, because this is the Contest of the Century.

Thanks to Premier Golf Classic Destinations—a travel agent for golf enthusiasts—you have a chance to a trip to Bermuda and tickets to the 2011 PGA Grand Slam of Golf. Here’s what you have to do: Pick one winner of any of the four major championships and you’ll receive a 10% discount on any of its Grand Slam travel packages; pick two major winners and you’ll win three nights at the Fairmont Southampton, Grand Slam tickets, transfers from the hotel to the event, airport transfers and breakfast daily; pick three major winners and you’ll get all of the above plus roundtrip airfare to Bermuda, four nights in a Deluxe room and two rounds of championship golf; and then there's the granddaddy prize of all for picking all four major winners, including everything aforementioned plus five nights accommodations in a Fairmont Gold room, an invitation to the welcome beachside cocktail party, an invitation to the Champions Dinner and three rounds of championship golf. I told you this was the Contest of the Century! All of the contest details can be found here and winning picks can be made up to a few days after the end of each tournament. And if you’re wondering what makes Port Royal one of the greatest public courses in the world, check out this video I shot, edited and hosted from last year’s tournament. Spoiler alert: You can watch me drink at least two Dark 'n Stormies on a sunshine-filled Bermudaful day.
