Reggae sensation Collie Buddz and media man Glenn Jones will square off in a golf showdown for the second time.  

The rematch will be bigger than the original, part of a Bermuda Tourism Authority-funded golf event featuring visiting VIPs and local residents who love the game.

The Bermuda Invitational, slated for September 12 to 14, will showcase Bermuda as a golfers’ paradise to potential vacationers and also mark the culmination of the Bermuda Sun’s 50th anniversary celebration.

Buddz will invite notables from the worlds of sport and entertainment to make up members of his team while Jones will invite overseas media to form his squad.  

Along with scores of local golfers, the two sides will face off Ryder Cup-style for the Dark n’ Stormy Cup.

Like the Capital G Golfer in the Making series from March 2013, Bermuda Sun and VIBE 103FM are media partners for the event.  

Gosling’s and BTA are onboard as major sponsors.  A campaign for additional sponsors is underway.  Talks to determine a host hotel and golf club venue are underway too — a decision is expected soon.  

The weekend will be rounded out with exclusive hospitality and entertainment events.  

Part of the money raised will benefit local children’s charities.

Corporate teams or individual golfers who want to be a part of the event September 12 to 14 can email their request for an official invitation to bdainvitational@bermudasun.bm.  

Efforts will be made to include as many people as possible in the Bermuda Invitational, but preference will be given to visitors, sponsors and clients of VIBE 103FM and Bermuda Sun
