GUATEMALA CITY, Guatemala – The Guatemala Stella Artois Open, the only PGA TOUR Latinoamérica tournament that gets to be played on the foothills of an active volcano, is only two weeks away.

Tournament organizers and sponsors got together with the local media on Tuesday to provide details about the event scheduled for the week of April 18 at the Fuego Maya Golf Club in La Reunión Golf Resort & Residences.

PGA TOUR Latinoamérica president Jack Warfield attended the event, joining local Tour partners Guillermo Cifuentes and Mario Navarro of La Reunión in welcoming the media to another exciting week of professional golf in Guatemala.

Roberto Batres, Stella Artois Brand manager, and Alejandro Fernández, AMBEV imported beers manager, attended on behalf of the title sponsor.

The golf course co-designer Perry Dye was also present at the event held in Guatemala City.

The 2016 Guatemala Stella Artois Open will feature a field of 144 players. The leading local will be José Toledo, a 29-year old who shared runner-up honors at the PGA TOUR Latinoamérica Tour Championship last December. Toledo is the only Guatemalan player with Tour status this season.
