Macanudo Cigars will be sending the winners of the Macanudo Ultimate Round Contest on an all-expense paid trip to Augusta to see golf's greatest players compete in the 2013 Masters Golf Tournament, live and in person. During April 10-15, 2013, eight winners and their guests will enjoy a golf-lover's dream come true: all-access tickets to the 2013 Masters, roundtrip airfare, lush accommodations at exquisite private residences, and white glove service, all in the company of their favorite Macanudo cigars.
As the winner of the Macanudo Ultimate Round photo contest, Jason Canady of Fayetteville, NC, submitted a photo of himself smoking a Macanudo 1968 at his hometown club, King's Grant Golf and Country Club. Jason and his guest will be joined in Augusta by the seven winners selected from entries submitted through online cigar retailers. They are: Richard Brown, Macon, GA (Thompson Cigars); Charlie Swart III, Wheeling, WV (JR Cigars); Kent Kilpatrick, McCook, NE (Famous Smoke Shop); CJ Kirkpatrick, Rio Rancho, NM (Holt's); Kevin Klein, Chester, NJ (Cigars International); Marc Stine, Parker, CO (Best Cigar Prices), and Ralph Hoover, Pittsburgh, PA (Mike's Cigars).
"The Macanudo Ultimate Round contest winners are about to experience the ultimate enjoyment of cigars and golf," said Alan Willner, vice president of marketing for General Cigar. "Macanudo's longtime association with the sport of golf is allowing us to deliver an unparalleled VIP experience. For these devoted Macanudo fans who enjoy the game as much as they enjoy their cigars, this will be the trip of a lifetime."
Updates from the Masters, and photos of Macanudo's ultimate golf getaway will be posted to the brand's Facebook and Twitter accounts beginning on April 10.
