Costa Smeralda Invitational is thrilled to announce that West Indies cricket legend Brian Lara is the latest guest to be confirmed for the star-studded Costa Smeralda Invitational between the 16 and 18th of June in Sardinia, Italy.
Widely acknowledged as one of the greatest batsmen of all time, Brian Lara returns to Costa Smeralda Invitational, which takes place at Pevero Golf Club and will see big names from the world of sports and entertainment coming together to raise money for The Global Gift Foundation, a non-profit organization that aims to create a positive impact on the lives of children, women and families who are in need.
Popularly nicknamed as “The Prince”, Lara was inducted into the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame after a hugely successful career, and currently holds the record for the highest individual score in first-class cricket with 501 not out and the highest individual score in a Test innings with 400 not out.
This year all the Costa Smeralda Invitational golfers will be tested by the world’s greatest-ever female golfer Annika Sorenstam during the Celeb-Am golf tournament at the stunning Pevero Golf Club. And for the first time at CSI, former Wimbledon champion Pat Cash will host an exclusive tennis clinic and present a Celeb-Am doubles tournament at the Cervo Tennis Club in the picturesque resort of Porto Cervo.
After the sporting events, all golfing guests and their partners will enjoy a fabulous Gala Dinner held at the magnificent Hotel Cala di Volpe. The evening will end with a charity auction to raise funds for the official Costa Smeralda Invitational charity, The Global Gift Foundation.
