Tournament entry for the event includes three rounds of tournament play (two at the Four Seasons Nevis Golf Club and one at the Royal St. Kitts Golf Club); four nights' accommodations in a Deluxe Nevis Peak Room with Private Lanai at the Four Seasons Resort Nevis; all-inclusive meals and beverages; and all ground and ferry transfers between St. Kitts and Nevis.

The links-style Royal St. Kitts Golf Club is an 18-hole course first designed by Peter Thompson in 1975 and then redesigned by Thomas McBroom in 2003. Its unique layout offers holes on both the Caribbean Sea and Atlantic Ocean. It was the first Caribbean golf course to earn Audubon Certification for its environmental practices.
The Four Seasons Nevis Golf Club features the par 71, 18-hole Robert Trent Jones II designed championship mountain-side course overlooking the Caribbean Sea and St. Kitts. St Kitts and Nevis are separated at the closest point by a two-mile wide channel, making travel between the two islands take just over half an hour by ferry.
In addition to the Royal St. Kitts Golf Club and the Four Seasons Nevis Golf Club, St. Kitts and Nevis will soon be home to the hillside Irie Fields championship course designed by Ian Woosnam at Kittitian Hill and a cliff-top Tom Fazio championship course at Christophe Harbour.
