WESTERN BUREAU:

The Hanover-based Tryall Club was the place to be last week Thursday evening when regional and international golfers came together for a cocktail reception to commemorate the start of the club's 5th Annual Invitational PRO-AM Golf Tournament.

The reception was held on the lawns of the ultra-exclusive Point of View Villa which is owned by Julia Utsch, president of Tryall Club. The villa offers beautiful panoramic views of the surrounding golf course and Hanover countryside.

Throughout the evening, guests were treated to delectable hors d'oeuvres of succulent lamb chops, escargots, duck breast and coffee-roasted beef tenderloin. An open bar provided a selection of wines and other beverages. There was also delightful musical entertainment, provided by in-house musician Ralph Holding.

The tournament
presents a wonderful opportunity for golf enthusiasts to experience
Tryall's award-winning championship course, which was designed by Ralph
Plummer. The event is known to attract a host of international
A-listers, and this year will be no different. Among the clubs that will
be featured are Hartford Golf Club, based in Connecticut, United
States, and Country Club of York, based in
Pennsylvania.

"The tournament is a great opportunity
to bring people to Jamaica and to Tryall Club. Our hope is that everyone
will have a good time and go back and spread the word of how wonderful,
beautiful and how cool it is to be in Jamaica," said George Hodges,
organiser of the tournament.

This year's tournament is
sponsored by Appleton Jamaica Rum.
