2020 IH&WGC Results – CuisinArt Resort, Anguilla ... PRESS RELEASE: 2/29/20

The thirty-sixth annual INTERNATIONAL HUSBAND & WIFE GOLF CHAMPIONSHIP was celebrated in style and splendor at the magnificent Reef by CuisinArt and the CuisinArt Golf Club in Anguilla during the week of February 23-29, 2020.

The CuisinArt Resort & Club presented an ocean-front, tropical vacation experience highlighted by friendly golf competition. The spectacular Greg Norman Signature golf course challenged us with a variety of water-fronted and ocean breeze affected golf holes … but the ocean vistas remained “unchallenged” as they soothed our souls and reminded us “We are not in Kansas anymore, Toto”! Over the thirty-six Championship years, golfing couples from thirty-two states, Great Britain, Canada, Mexico, Trinidad, Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico have competed for the Gross and Net Championships.    

The Net Championship commenced in perfect Caribbean weather with plenty of sunshine and no wind at all.  Mary Ruth & Henry Geny, from Nashville, TN and Jenny & Chris Colapietro, from Yardley, PA took advantage of the perfect playing conditions with Better Ball scores of 63. The second and final rounds offered gentle breezes that added “CuisinArt Personality” to the scoring. Kathryn & Richard Bradbury, from Beaufort, SC shot a 64 in the second round and were tied with defending champions, Barb & John Wellard, from North Bay, ON, Canada just 2 shots behind the Genys. The Genys finished with another strong 63 (63-67-63=193) to claim the 2020 Title. The Bradburys finished as Runners-up and Anne & Con Constandis, from Johns Island, SC won the 3rd place trophy.
