Rosewood Bermuda is launching its inaugural signature golf tournament this weekend, aimed at bringing together everyone from members to public non-pro players for a weekend filled with golf and entertainment.
Rosewood Bermuda, the island’s premier luxury resort, is hosting its first annual signature golf tournament, ‘The Rosewood Cup,’ November 25th – 27th, 2022. In celebration of the Thanksgiving holiday and in the spirit of thankfulness and gratitude, this first of its kind event was created to bring together local Bermudians and public non-pro players, members and residence owners of Tucker's Point and guests of Rosewood Bermuda for a multi-day event that will honor the local community and international guests while igniting excitement and creating long-lasting memories through the game of golf.
Friday, November 25th - Registration and Welcome Cocktail Party
To kickstart the weekend, a welcome cocktail party will be hosted on Friday, November 25th at 6:30 p.m. at Tucker’s Point Club for participants of the inaugural Rosewood Cup and their guests. Registration will take place as players enjoy a fun evening of cocktails while staking out their competition.
Saturday, November 26th - 1st Day of the Tournament
The following day, Saturday, November 26th marks the first official day of the Tournament. Beginning at 11 a.m., golfers will be able to enjoy a grab-and-go style Brunch at Sul Verde, located at Tucker’s Point Club with views of the course and picturesque Bermuda waters. The Tournament will begin at 12 p.m. with a shotgun start and will follow a 2-ball, shamble format.
Sunday, November 27th - 2nd Day of the Tournament
The second and final day of the tournament will begin on Sunday, November 27th at 10 a.m. with a grab-and-go brunch at Sul Verde followed by an 11 a.m. shotgun start following a 2-ball, best-ball format. To conclude the tournament, cocktails, and dinner will be provided from 5 p.m. that evening, along with live entertainment and special prizes that will be given to the winning participants.
Unlike traditional golf tournaments, Rosewood Cup presents an elevated take on the social aspect of the sport with exclusive events, performances and a variety of culinary experiences for all to enjoy throughout the weekend. Intended to support the overarching idea of comradery not found at other golf tournaments in the past, Rosewood Bermuda is hosting a slew of exciting activities:
- Welcome cocktail party on Friday, November 25th at 6:30 p.m.
- Casual Bermuda-style BBQ with live entertainment on Saturday, November 26th at 4:30 p.m.
- Evening of cocktails, dinner and prizes on Sunday, November 27th at 5:00 p.m. to conclude the tournament.
Partnering with Rosewood Cup is Byrdie Golf Social Wear, the Charlotte-based high-end golf and tennis retailer, who will be hosting the ultimate ‘19th Hole’ experience in The Grille Room from 10 a.m.- 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. The pop-up will feature the brand’s ultra-luxury “Course to Cocktail Collection” available for guests to shop while enjoying refreshing beverages and live music.
The prizes available for Rosewood Cup champions are unrivaled to those of other tournaments on island, including:
- a 2-to-5-night stay at sister properties such as Rosewood Little Dix Bay in the British Virgin Islands, Rosewood Le Guanahani, St. Barth, Rosewood London, Rosewood Washington D.C., and the famed Carlyle in New York City.
- the first player to hit a hole-in-one will win a car from Rayclan Bermuda.
For those not participating in Rosewood Cup, visitors will have a chance to win exclusive trips to other Rosewood Hotels & Resorts through door prizes and auctioned items.
THE ROSEWOOD CUP TROPHY
The most notable prize of all will be the custom-made trophy, awarded to the winner of the Rosewood Cup, which will remain on display at Tucker’s Point Club with the recipient having the opportunity to defend their championship title each subsequent year.
Dwayne Pearman Jr., or DJ, the Head Pro of Tucker’s Point Golf Course, has longstanding family ties with the golf course and is the commissioning leader of Rosewood Cup. Starting as a cart attendant in 2013 and working his way up to Head Pro in 2022, DJ runs all events, junior programs and lessons at the club. His father, Dwayne Pearman Sr., inspired DJ’s passion for golf as a young boy through his friendship with then-Head Pro Walter King, who allowed use of the driving range and practice area, which was well restricted at the time. Dwayne Sr. went on to turn pro in 1986 and won many of Bermuda’s major events, including the Bermuda Open and the Belmont Invitational, to name a few. DJ’s uncle, Sheridan “Bally” Ming, a local carpenter specializing in cabinets, chairs, and more, has been asked with great honor to create the bespoke trophy for Rosewood Cup. The trophy itself will be adorned with a fine-crystal globe, but Bally is ensuring Bermudian ‘Sense of Place’ in the piece by crafting a base of authentic Bermuda Cedar, re-claimed from natural timber fallen within Tucker’s Point grounds. An engravable plaque will be updated each year with the championship winner’s name.
Another highlight of Rosewood Bermuda’s Rosewood Cup is the ongoing commitment to uplifting Bermudian families and communities through an existing partnership with The Family Centre, an accredited nonprofit organization dedicated to improving families’ lives by sharing resources, and know-how to ensure that citizens have safe, clean housing, and are not neglected. Rosewood Bermuda will continue its support of the Family Centre by donating proceeds to the foundation from auctioned prize items.
“We are blown away by the positive responses we’ve received since announcing the Rosewood Cup, with nearly selling out two months prior to the championship,” says Sascha Hemmann, Managing Director of Rosewood Bermuda. “It is our goal that this annual event will bring together locals, members and guests for years to come, supporting our vision of long-lasting comradery. We see this tournament as an introduction for a new generation to enjoy and learn about Tucker’s Point, and are so grateful to have the opportunity to maintain our long-standing support of our community and The Family Centre through this event.”
Rosewood Bermuda would like to thank all sponsors (Rayclan Bermuda, Goslings Rum, Wakefield Quin, Skyport, The Tasting Room and Enjoysimons) along with their fellow Rosewood properties for their support of the inaugural Rosewood Cup.
