The Championship Tournament has pioneered the sport of golf in Mexico and Latin America and has paved the way for other events such as the PGA Tour Latin America and other professional golf events held annually.

The Mayakoba PGA Tour event continues to grow in stature and interest, and we are happy to provide advanced on-site Internet and digital infrastructure services to assist tournament organizers, media organizations, and spectators to access high-speed Internet throughout the venue.”

Paul Moore, Chairman and CEO of GigNet, Inc., added, “We are happy to be selected by World Wide Technology, the newly named event title sponsor, to be a Corporate Partner. This event showcases the incredible hospitality industry in Playa Del Carmen and Cancun, the importance of high-speed Internet and other technology to manage and broadcast a major international sporting event, and talented young golfers from Mexico that are having a positive impact on the sport. We are also proud to be part of an event that has contributed over US$2.5 million dollars to philanthropic causes benefitting community organizations in Playa Del Carmen and Cancun."


El Camaleón golf course is known for natural features representative of the Riviera Maya landscape including a cenote, an underground freshwater cavern unique to the region located along the opening fairway, and two oceanfront holes that offer far-reaching views of the Caribbean Sea. El Camaleón is certified by Audubon International as a Cooperative Sanctuary for its commitment to the environment and eco-friendly practices, working to protect and sustain the land, water, natural resources and wildlife habitats.
