American Celebrities Tee Off at OCEAN Style Celebrity Golf Invitational Weekend

With extraordinary stamped on the OCEAN Style Celebrity Golf Weekend, a chance to win USD $1 Million Hole-in-One prize and an opportunity take on the sometimes unyielding Tryall Golf Course; two back-to-back nights of parties and the threat of rain, could not keep the golfers away from the OCEAN Style Celebrity Golf Weekend just held at The Tryall Club.

This year the OCEAN Style Celebrity Golf Invitational Weekend provided twice the fun and twice the challenge as it gave celebrity and local golfers two exciting opportunities to tackle the fabled Ralph Plummer designed course in the OCEAN Style Celebrity Golf Invitational on Saturday and the inaugural Anthony Anderson Golf Invitational on Sunday. Saturday’s game took the format of a 2-person scramble while Sunday’s game relied on individual dexterity.

Energy was high and the camaraderie plentiful throughout the day, undoubtedly assisted by the strategic placement of well-appointed refreshment stations throughout the course by presenting sponsor Appleton Estate Jamaica Rum.

"It is my first time in Jamaica and I am looking forward to winning that USD1 million dollars", said NFL legend Eric Dickerson.  Other celebrity participants included actors:  Anthony Anderson, Flex Alexander, Omar Benson Miller, Chuy Bravo from Chelsea Lately!, as well as former undisputed heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis, NFL Superbowl winner Verron Haynes and West Indies legend Jeffrey Dujon. Corporate Jamaica was represented by presenting sponsor Appleton Estate Jamaica Rum, The Tryall Club, Digicel, Iberostar and the Jamaica Observer, among the event's partners.
