The Flamingos Golf Club hosted the VI Flamingos International Can-Am-Mex Riviera Nayarit 2018 Cup last February 17, a golf event where 108 players from Canada, the United States and Mexico spent time together and competed on the golf course.

The Canadian team was crowned champion of this edition of the Flamingos Cup. Canada has won this cup for the fourth time, as they had already won in 2013, 2014 and 2016. Mexico won in 2015 and 2017, whereas the United States has not been able to win so far.

It is a friendly competition, with all amateur men and women categories, where the purpose is to promote friendship and intercultural exchange among players of different nationalities. This amateur golf tournament has already become a tourist attraction and a sporting reference that has contributed to the consolidation of Riviera Nayarit as world-class golf destination.

The game took place during a  18-hole round, divided into two nines. The first 9 holes were played in the Scramble format and the rest on Best Score. The teams competed in couples.

In the first format, the winning team was Mexico, with 22 points, although after the Best Score final results were tallied, Canada obtained the first place with 41.5 points. Mexico placed second with 34 points and the United States finished in the third place, with 33.5 points.

The golf tournament in Riviera Nayarit ended with a great atmosphere, where golf-enthusiasts enjoyed great food and an award ceremony where more than 100 gifts and courtesies were raffled off by the sponsors.

“When I first opened my gallery in 1986, my relationship with Vallarta Lifestyles started for the need of people to know me and, because it is one of the very few quality publications in the destination, I decided to advertise in it. There are clients that still remember me for the magazine, with whom I have had several years of relationship”.

“We have been clients of Vallarta Lifestyles since 1999, the year in which we arrived to this destination. Back then, it was the only publication where you could really do local marketing. These days, in spite of the arrival of new technologies, we keep advertising, because it is a really important complement for our marketing strategy”.

“Vallarta Lifestyles has helped us a lot to position our business, the fact that people see us in the magazine has contributed their coming back to Faith Colectiva. Actually, we have measured the reach of our advertising by offering a free gift and it is unbelievable to see them coming with the issue”.
