This year’s open expects more than 80 players in attendance hailing from St. Maarten/St. Martin and other Caribbean islands such as Anguilla, Antigua, Aruba, Curacao, Guadeloupe, St. Kitts and the U.S. Virgin Islands as well as Europe and the U.S.

The open is held to aid the local St. Maarten community with the majority of the proceeds donated to local organizations.
