specialist Beach Club and put on a huge closing party on the last day of the tour.
As this year will mark the 14th edition of the tournament in the Riviera Maya, PGA wanted to do
something a little bit special using an amazing three-pillar initiative. They want to prove that the
Mayakoba Golf Classic is so much more than just golf, and so Giving, Gourmet, Family was born.
Each year the Mayakoba Golf Classic not only takes on 600 different volunteers from the
local areas to get involved and experience the tournament hands-on, but it also donates to several
charities and gives back to the local communities in the Riviera Maya. They support important local
institutions such as DIF Solidaridad and the Riviera Maya Red Cross. Since its establishment in
2007, the Mayakoba Golf Classic has donated $2.7 million dollars to charities and philanthropic

a gourmet feast, with emphasis on local providers. The famous chefs of Mayakoba will work
alongside local food truck vendors to give you an authentic-gourmet experience all week long.

and enjoyed as a family, no matter your age. That's why this year, the Mayakoba Golf Classic is
offering a special Kid's Autograph Zone, fun games and activities, photo booths, memory walls and
social media activations to keep the little ones happy all day long. They are also welcoming back a
famous Trick Shot Artist who is sure to dazzle both children and adults alike.
