The PGA Tour Event is being played at El Camaleon Golf Club, at Mayakoba near Playa Del Carmen, Mexico.

The tournament continues through the final round of play scheduled for Sunday, November 6, 2022.
Mark Carney, OBE and President of GigNet Mexico, stated, “We are pleased to be a sponsor for this incredible event, and proud to be chosen to provide critical broadband services necessary for an international event of this magnitude. This is our 4th year as a corporate partner and connectivity provider, and we have seen this tournament grow. It is especially great to see thousands of spectators back after the pandemic, and this really is a symbol for how Playa Del Carmen, Cancun, Tulum, and the entire Riviera Maya region have led the world in recovery in international tourism.”
Mr. Carney added, “In addition to being a world class sporting event attracting the best professional golfers from the United States, Latin America and the world, the tournament brings great attention to the region as a premier destination not only for tourism, but as a great business environment and increasingly as a high-demand area for residential development. We are also proud to be part of an event that contributes each year to youth and other charities in the region.”
The World Wide Technology Championship at Mayakoba is committed to supporting local, national, and international charities. The event donates significant funds and raises awareness for selected charities, and has donated over US$2.9 million to causes positively impacting communities in Playa Del Carmen and Cancun.
