The Bermuda Tourism Authority (BTA), in partnership with PGA Magazine and Ellison Consulting Group, will be hosting the inaugural Black Golfers Week program featuring a Legends Lunch with John Carlos.
“We look forward to welcoming visitors to our island for this historic inaugural event honoring Bermuda’s golf legacy and providing an action-packed platform for diversity, equity, and inclusivity. Our island has more golf courses per square mile than anywhere else in the world. That fact, paired with a history that includes groundbreaking achievements by Bermudian golfers who helped break the color line in the US and Canada, it is a natural home for this launch event,” says Charles H. Jeffers II, CEO of the BTA.
BTA Director of Sports Business Development and three-time US Olympian Hazel Clark underscores the event’s importance, “As a leading sports tourism destination, Bermuda celebrates the achievements of athletes who have challenged the lack of diversity and accessibility in key sectors throughout history. Black Golfers Week offers a groundbreaking opportunity for communities worldwide to come together for action-driven conversations designed to build upon those achievements to advance diversity and access to the sport of golf.”
