Golf lovers appreciated a day of networking and sunshine at yesterday’s IAADFS Show golf tournament, featuring a two-man scramble format. The tournament was a resounding success, with everyone enjoying sponsored libations along the way.

Show sponsor American Caribbean Gateway/Macanudo Cigars hosted the putting contest, celebrating a hole in one when Antoine de Pracomtal, president of Zylangia, sunk one in. Harry Diehl, now retired from Heinemann and a longtime attendee of the Duty Free Show, came in a close second when his ball hit the pin, but bounced back out.

“That was the best thing that happened to me on the course all day,” said Diehl. “You know, people are just here for fun, to have a drink, hit golf balls, and enjoy the day.”

Nadine Heubel, who will soon take the reins as CEO of Heinemann Americas, was happy to participate in the tournament after taking an eight-year break from attending the show.

“I enjoyed playing on this beautiful course with all these great people, mixing and mingling,” Heubel said.

IAADFS thanks American Caribbean Gateway/Macanudo Cigars for its sponsorship of the 2016 golf tournament, in addition to Botran Aged Rums, Remy Cointreau, Tea Forte, and World Equity Brand Builders for their support.
