Who's Lorena Ochoa? Well, she's just the #1 ranked female golfer in the world. "She has to be one of the most amazing people I have ever met," said Grace Ramirez. "Playing with her was the experience of a lifetime."
When Grace is not golfing, she is one of the top sales associates at Prudential Vallarta. But last Saturday, it was all about world class golf at the First Annual Ambassador of Tourism Golf Tournament played on the championship par-72 Jack Nicklaus Signature course at Vista Vallarta Club de Golf.
Participation in this stellar event was by invitation only through the Secretary of Tourism, with only 72 players teeing up. There were some outstanding performances on the course, but at the end of the day, the players who stood out from the crowd were Mario Nunes, Mauricio Pellegrini, Manuel Mayorga and Alejandro Rios.
Security was tight as you might imagine, but Golf Club General Manager KC Crandall pulled off the tournament without a hitch, demonstrating his many years of experience and expertise in staging international events.
Vista Vallarta has hosted many such world-class golf tournaments and is a favorite choice of many event planners around the globe. Spread across 478 acres and encompassing two 18-hole, par-72 championship courses, the Signature course designed by golf icon Jack Nicklaus, and the neighboring course designed by golf-great Tom Weiskopf, are first-rate venues for those on their game.
As an added kudo, Grace Ramirez was informally dubbed the "hostess" of Vista Vallarta Club de Golf and received the distinction for hitting the longest drive at the tournament in the women's category.
The event culminated with the releasing of doves to symbolize Lorena Ochoa's designation as Ambassador to Puerto Vallarta and receiving the key to the city.
