The cost to residents/guests from The Crane is: 

  1. BDS $185 for Crane guests.  This covers the cost of 18 holes of golf, electric cart, pre-dinner drinks and the excellent buffet supper at the Crane.   Golf club rental is BDS $50 if needed.
  2. BDS $100 for the non-playing dinner guest of competitors to cover the cocktails and dinner, (also payable at the BGC Pro Shop).



Should demand warrant, a shuttle will be arranged to depart the Crane at 7:00 am on the 6th to allow you time to pay (if necessary), load your clubs and be in position for the shotgun start.  It will return you to the Crane at about 1:30 pm after the golf.  Cost will be advised by Crane Guest Services.

Considering how well attended this event was last year, the excellent condition of the BGC course, and the outstanding meal laid out by the The Crane, be assured it will be a day to remember!
