2017 Necker Open

November 26 – December 2,
Puerto Rico and the British Virgin Islands

The Most Fun & Exclusive Golf Pro-Am

The Necker Open is considered the world’s most exclusive Pro-Am Golf event taking place November 26th – December 2nd with lots of fun to be had each day. It all begins at the Dorado Beach, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve in Puerto Rico, where guests will enjoy 27 holes of golf.

After short flight to the British Virgin Islands the fun continues on Sir Richard Branson’s Necker Island where the Necker 9, a series of unique challenges on land a sea, offer a unique test of your golfing skills.

Organized by the experienced staff at Premier Live the event offers a unique experience that has raised over $4 million for our designated beneficiaries.

As well as great tennis, participants engage in typical Necker Island activities like paddle boarding, kite boarding (Sir Richard’s favorite), wake boarding, snorkeling, massage therapy, beach tennis, parties and more.

For a chance to win a spot in the Necker Open, we host the Necker Open Qualifier, November 26 – 29 at Dorado Beach, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve, with the winner joining the Necker Open guests on the flight to Necker! Click HERE for more details.


A Ritz Carlton Reserve

Once a plantation, Dorado Beach, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve is now one of the most exclusive Caribbean luxury resorts in Puerto Rico inspired by the legacy and memorable vacation experiences of its original developer, Laurance S. Rockefeller. Its remoteness, discreet individualized service and deep respect for the environment distinguish it from other ultra luxury resorts by allowing extraordinary moments to unfold in the most unexpected ways.


Necker Open participants will get to stay just steps away from the beautiful Atlantic Ocean and surrounded by acres of tropical forest,
in accommodations that feature distinctive touches and enhanced features.
