The thirty-fifth anniversary INTERNATIONAL HUSBAND & WIFE GOLF CHAMPIONSHIP was celebrated in style and splendor at the magnificent HALF MOON Resort & Club on the Cinnamon Hill, White Witch and Half Moon golf courses during the week of January 27 – March 2, 2019.

The HALF MOON Resort & Club presented an ocean-front, tropical vacation experience highlighted by friendly golf competition on three spectacular golf courses.
