One of the earliest and most vocal advocates for integration in the sport of golf was a Bermudian. A St. George's native, Louis Rafael "Kid" Corbin was the first Black golfer to compete in prestigious tournaments like the Canadian Open, and passionately fought against racism on and off the course.
With such a powerful legacy, it's fitting that the island will celebrate progress and highlight persisting barriers to participation during the Bermuda Black Golfers Week Event. See a preview of last year's event below.
Preceeding the Butterfield Bermuda Championship, the event brings together some of the best Black golfers and thought leaders in the world for thrilling play on breathtaking courses, compelling discussions about how to drive greater diversity in golf and fun festivities.
