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.

“Among other things, Vallarta Lifestyles stands out for its strong presence throughout our destination, from five stars hotels to brand new condominiums, where they finally find the type of clients that we look for. For all of us is very important to be in print media to strengthen our advertising strategy and this magazine is essential to achieve it.”

“Vallarta Lifestyles is a platform that allows us to reach the kind of market that we’re looking for. I think that, since its beginnings, 30 years ago, it has been the best publication of the destination. There’s no doubt that part of our success is for the advertising that we have in the magazine.”
