Tierra del Sol Resort & Golf, Caya di Solo 10, Noord, Aruba


The 29th edition of Café the Plaza Golf Tournament will be held on Saturday, November 26th.

Golfers have been looking forward to it the entire year, but now the time is here: the Hans Nooter Memorial Trophy 2022 is ready to have a new winner. The exciting golf event will see its shotgun start at 12.00 pm at the fantastic Tierra del Sol golf course. The format is a two-person scramble; men play from the White tees and the women from the Coral tees. Thirty percent of the combined total is the team’s handicap. Formerly the event was called the Plaza Golf Open; the name change was made to honor fun-loving Café the Plaza owner Hans Nooter, who passed away 10 years ago.

There is a limit of 40 teams (80 players), so early registration is recommended. “This tournament is all about having fun and good memories of Hans,’’ tell the long-time participants, all regulars of Café the Plaza in the Renaissance Marketplace. The event will have different prizes, second and third-place teams as well as for Closest to the Pin at Holes 3, 7, 13, 15 and 17.

After playing 18 holes, the tired golfers are expected back at Café the Plaza after 5 pm for a few reviving drinks and a bite to eat before the prizes are handed out.

Registration for the Hans Nooter Memorial Golf Trophy is possible at Tierra del Sol at or call 586-0978. The prices are $89 for local players and $119 for visitors.
