JEJU ISLAND, South Korea, May 17, 2011 /PRNewswire/ – Diamante Cabo San Lucas, a private oceanfront community on the Baja Peninsula in Mexico, is participating this week in the World Club Championship in Korea.
The 8th( )annual tournament is one of the premier amateur golf events in the world and brings together 20 clubs from 15 countries selected from Golf Magazine’s 2009 Top 100 Courses in the World list and a select group of additional invitees.

The World Cup Tournament from May 16 to May 20 will be held at two Korean courses: The Club at Nine Bridges on Jeju Island, ranked #55 by Golf Magazine, and Haesley Nine Bridges in Seoul. The field of 20 two-person teams will play a 36-hole stroke play qualification tournament, with the first four teams moving on to a match play championship in order to determine the winner.
Joining team members Richard Umani and Chris Terebesi at the tournament in Korea is Diamante Founder, Ken Jowdy. Diamante updates will be available on Ken Jowdy’s Twitter Feed (@kenjowdy), Facebook page (facebook.com/kenjowdy) and Chris and Rick’s blog – http://chrisandrickinkorea.wordpress.com.
