five races of excellence, one club
After a not easy year 2021 due to the known restrictions, but nevertheless full of satisfactions, which ended with the beautiful final on October 21 at the Ambrosiano, the Italy Golf Cup “returns to the green” with a new project.
Italian Golf Cup, schedule
It is a five-course excellence in one of the most recognized symbols of our home golf: the Menaggio & Cadenabbia Golf Club. A choice due to the desire, after a year of wandering in 18 different clubs, to give Italy Golf Cup a moment of stability by freeing itself from a prestigious club.
In the plans of the organizers, Menaggio & Cadenabbia should become in the next few years the “home” and the ideal sporting location for the launch of new and important joint initiatives. As Adriano Manzoni, promoter of the Italy Golf Cup, points out, “it is thanks to the availability of the club’s management (in particular the president Vittorio Roncoroni and the sports secretary Doris Sivalli) that it was possible today to create the Italy Golf Cup Excellence 2022”
With this initiative, Italy Golf Cup and the Menaggio & Cadenabbia club want to qualify as the ideal showcase for Italian brands. At the same time, the objective is to lay the foundations to become a promoter for tourism and golf entities.
The aim is to circulate golfers/tourists between the associated structures. It is with this in mind that in addition to the rewards for individual races, a cumulative ranking will also be established. The classification will retain a maximum of three of the best results of the five races.
This leaderboard will see the top three ranked winners. To be won, a trip to Portugal offered by “I Viaggi di Seve”, one of the circuit’s partners. He is one of the most successful sportsmen of all time, as well as one of the richest in the world.
In terms of firsts, Tiger Woods is still present: 15 major tournaments won, 110 professional tournaments, the most successful golfer in the history of the sport. Statistics that explain why he managed to stay at the top of the world rankings for 683 weeks (including 281 consecutive) and especially because in 2014 he became the first athlete in the world to have crossed the billion dollar mark.
Astronomical figure which also justifies the fact that Tiger Woods can afford a yacht like the Privacy, a real fairy tale boat. And obviously, we’re talking about something that was expensive. If you imagine a luxury yacht and some comfort on board, then Privacy has it.
48 meters long, with a total area of 600 square meters, this yacht was purchased by the golfer in 2004. Equipped with five cabins that can accommodate a total of ten people, it also has four quarters for nine crew members .
Tiger Woods usually calls it “my dinghy” even though everything looks like a dinghy: with a cruising speed of 18 knots, it also has an onboard gym where the golfer continues to train. Woods, in fact, prefers to stay on this yacht during tournaments held in New York.
With cherry wood interiors, Privacy also boasts a three-person elevator, a huge jacuzzi, big enough to seat eight, and the inevitable cinema room and bar area. The little extra of this mega yacht is provided by the area that Tiger Woods wanted dedicated to scuba diving: this also explains the presence of an (inflatable) decompression chamber and an area dedicated to filling bottles. ‘oxygen.
The luxury is also complemented by three jet skis and two scooters for short shore excursions. Obviously, all this has a price: privacy costs 17 million euros and its annual maintenance amounts to 1.7 million euros.
