For many golfers, playing a round at the Ocean Course at Peninsula Papagayo is one of the best ways to spend the day. And for one day a year, playing a game can help improve life in the neighboring communities. The Peninsula Papagayo Invitational, now in its third year, is a popular event that fundraises for Creciendo Juntos´ efforts to help improve the well-being of residents in neighboring communities.
For the past two events, former World #1, Ernie Els, has participated in the tournament and Peninsula Papagayo is honored to have him join us for one more year as Peninsula Papagayo brand ambassador.
The beneficiary of 2019 and 2020 golf tournaments was Guardia High School. Proceeds totaled an incredible $150,000, a generous $50,000 more than our goal. With these extra funds we were able to complete our work for Guardia High School faster than originally planned. Projects included buying land to build more classrooms, construct technology and English labs, and engage in other building improvements.
