Stars Tee Off At Sandals Emerald Bay Celebrity Getaway & Golf Weekend

October 01, 2013 - Sandals Resorts - CEO

Sandals Resorts and Access Hollywood recently rolled out the red carpet at the Sandals Emerald Bay Celebrity Getaway & Golf Weekend in Great Exuma, Bahamas. Joined by special guests Access Hollywood host Billy Bush and golf legend Greg Norman, celebrities flew south thanks to American Airlines and the Bahamas Ministry of Tourism for a three-day event full of sun, golf, and plenty of good times.

Joining in on the fun were Garcelle Beauvais (Franklin and Bash), actress and Access Hollywood Live co-host Holly Robinson Peete and her husband Rodney Peete (NFL), Alan Thicke (Growing Pains), Kevin Rahm (Mad Men), Steven Bauer (Ray Donovan), Gretchen Rossi and Slade Smiley (RHOC), Marissa Jaret Winokur (Hairspray) and Mayte Garcia (Army Wives).

The event kicked off Friday night with a Welcome Junkanoo Beach Party, true Caribbean style. On Saturday, the stars were invited to take advantage of all the Luxury Included® amenities found at Sandals Emerald Bay, Great Exuma, Bahamas including water sports, the award-winning Red Lane® Spa and excursions through Island Routes Caribbean Adventures. On Sunday, they hit the green for the celebrity golf tournament at Sandals Emerald Reef Golf Club, an 18-hole championship course designed by Greg Norman himself, but not before the pro taught them a thing or two during a clinic while warming up. The day was highlighted by the much anticipated "Million Dollar Hole-In-One Shootout" that allowed five of the best golfers a chance to shoot a hole-in-one for a $1 million donation to the Sandals Foundation, and another golf clinic giving local schoolchildren the chance to learn from “The Shark” himself. The evening culminated in a gala dinner and awards ceremony that included a decadent dessert buffet.
