ORLANDO, FLA. (July 18, 2018) – Orange Lake Resorts, home to the Holiday Inn Club Vacations® brand, is proud to announce the sponsorship of Professional Golf Association (PGA) Tour player Robert Gamez. The three-time PGA champion, with career professional winnings topping $8.7 million, will join the PGA Champions Tour for his first tournament at this year’s British Senior Open in Scotland, July 26-29.
